Enjoy an Amazing Day Out with Aussie Bali Adventures Family ATV

Enjoy an Amazing Day Out with Aussie Bali Adventures Family ATV

We’ve been to Bali a few times now, and we’d never considered going on any sort of ATV tour as we’ve always had very tiny people in tow. This time however, we decided it was time for a bit of adventuring, and after running the idea past the bosses (our two daughters who are 4 and 7), we decided that the family beach tour with Aussie Bali Adventures looked like the type of fun we were looking for.

Aussie Bali Adventures Bali Kids Guide

A big bonus with this tour is that pickup and drop off is included, so we didn’t have to worry about the extra cost and hassle of arranging transport. We were picked up from just outside our villa near Ubud and driven about an hour south to the Aussie Bali Adventures base in Tabanan Regency. Once we’d signed some paperwork, had our complimentary pre-tour drink, and re-applied our sunscreen we were shown to our ATV’s. The girls were of course very pleased to have matching red ones! After a quick demo of how to turn them on and off (a sequence which I forgot every single time), we strapped on our yellow helmets, plonked our small people on the special small people seats on the back, and off we went in a little convoy in to the Bali countryside.

Aussie Bali Adventures Bali Kids Guide

If you’re worried about not being able to drive one of these things, don’t be. They’re pretty foolproof. With your thumb controlling the throttle, and no gears to change, you really just have to concentrate on steering the thing in the direction you want to go. If you’re not confident in your ability to do that 100% of the time, that’s ok too, as we had two additional guides bringing up the rear who helped us out when we were heading through any tricky spots. Our guide was also obviously very good at recognising the less confident drivers among us, and kept things pretty slow at first. This allowed us to get used to the whole concept of the thumb throttle, and gave us a chance to look at the countryside without veering off in to a ditch!

Seeing rice paddies from the road is one thing, but driving along the tracks that separates them literally gives you a whole different perspective. The countryside is full of sights and smells that you’d usually miss when you’re speeding past in a car, but it didn’t feel like we were intruding. The paths are used by walkers, cyclists and scooters, so the locals are used to people zipping by and often took a time out way from what they were doing to smile and wave.

Aussie Bali Adventures Bali Kids Guide

Heading out of the rice paddies, we zipped through a small village and then on to the vast black sand beach which seems to go on forever in either direction. By now we’d had time to get used to the ATV’s, and with the added space that the beach gives you, it was time to really hold on tight. Guided through the surf and around spectacular rock formations, we sped along the coast, passing fisherman mending their nets, locals swimming, strolling tourists and even a couple of cows. With a series of stops at points of interest (with a quick clamber up some cliffs and the chance get close – but not too close – to a funky smelling cave full of bats thrown in for good measure), there were plenty of opportunities to make sure we got some great photographs before we turned around to head back to base.

Aussie Bali Adventures Bali Kids Guide

As we’d booked the afternoon tour, we started back as the sun was getting lower in the sky. We took a different route through the rice fields past women picking flowers for offerings, kids heading towards the beach with fishing poles and farmers tending to their rice fields. I don’t know if I just didn’t really take it all in on the way out as I was concentrating on not bunny-hopping my 4 year old out of her seat, but the scenery was even more amazing than before. Our guide was happy to stop whenever we wanted to take pictures, and pointed out ever increasingly beautiful views along the way. We’d been on the ATV’s for almost two hours by this point, and with some angry looking clouds on the horizon, we decided it was time to head back for some food.

Back at base, we had a quick wipe down (you will get mucky!) and a drink before piling back in to the van and heading for our dinner by the pool at the Amarta Beach Retreat. After we’d had such a great time on the ATV’s we would honestly have been happy for a bottle of water and a sandwich, so we were very surprised when we arrived to a poolside table and a view of the coastline that would be hard to beat. Though the choices for dinner were pretty limited, the meal was delicious and was exactly what we needed, and though we could have gone swimming, it was getting late so we instead chose to dip our feet in the pleasantly warm infinity pool as we watched the sun set on a truly great family day out.

Aussie Bali Adventures Bali Kids Guide

We had an awesome time with Aussie Bali Adventures. The staff were great, the scenery was amazing and it was something that we just wouldn’t have a chance to do back at home. If you’re considering an ATV tour whilst in Bali, I’d highly recommend you try out Aussie Bali Adventures.

Kids Yoga: Ari from Ubud Yoga Centre Talks About the Benefits

Kids Yoga: Ari from Ubud Yoga Centre Talks About the Benefits

What’s the Appropriate Age for Children to Start Doing Yoga?

I’ve been asked this question a lot by parents. I must say I’ve had kids ranging from 4 to 9 years old coming to my kids yoga class. However, I have allowed even younger kids to join my class, with one of their parents present. 

kids yoga bridge bali kids guide ubud yoga centre

I am inspired to introduce yoga to children at their earliest possible age, in order to encourage them to express themselves mentally and physically in wholesome, fulfilling new ways, through the combination of breathing, singing, performing poses and team building activities. Far beyond merely performing poses, Yoga for children is all about learning to acknowledge their own expression of enjoyment of space.

kids yoga bridge bali kids guide ubud yoga centre

Having children doing Yoga, is a stepping stone for them to learn, and recognize just how everyday life is based on Yoga. In order to achieve this, I’ve introduced a simple method for them to observe and to express themselves, in knowing that Yoga is part of our life, Yoga is everything and their everything is actually Yoga practice some way or another. This approach allows younger children to not be afraid to express themselves and have fun throughout the process.

kids yoga circle bali kids guide ubud yoga centre

For instance, commonly I’ll have children perform the poses to the rest of the class and modify the asanas in a fun way, as well as give them kid-friendly names, which further allows them to be in their comfort zone when at times they are hesitant or withdrawn. Nevertheless, I have come to realize that allowing them to observe is one of the best ways to discover just how expressive kids can be, especially when it comes to sound; they will usually be singing or chanting mantras at the end of the class, regardless of how withdrawn or shy they seemed at first.

kids yoga sun salute bali kids guide ubud yoga centre

Yoga is, therefore, inseparable from life: It is movement, it is about breathing, and it is about helping each other. Yoga is everything. Being able to incorporate the Pilates principle with Coordinative movement helps children strengthen their body in a loving way. Breathing and Meditation helps them listen to their inner voice and stay calm, and set the main steps to the exciting, lifelong journey of awakening to their true essence of simply being happy within.”

Paradiso Ubud: Paradise for Families

Paradiso Ubud: Paradise for Families

Paradiso Ubud is an absolute gem of a space in central Ubud. Boasting to be the world’s first organic vegan cinema, it is actually much more than that. This 150 person capacity venue offers daily movie screenings; everything from kids films, documentaries, short films and tv series. It also hosts yoga and dance classes, workshops, lectures, live music and art exhibitions.

paradiso-3

We have spent many a rainy Sunday in their wonderful cinema space on the comfy reclining couches munching on popcorn and delicious vegetarian and vegan goodies from connected Down to Earth. Don’t be put off by the Ubud-ness of how it sounds, they have plenty of amazing things on their menu that kids love. Some of our faves are the potato wedges, Mediterranean platter for sharing and the fabulous smoothies, lassies and juices. Don’t even get me started on the raw chocolate and coconut goodies…

Now all I can think about is the tasty food, but what great fuel it is for all the yoga, dance and other workshops they hold there! We love the regular kids acro-yoga with Noga and have had a great time at workshops like the Bali Circus, which was a special one during the 2nd annual Bali Vegan Festival.

Paradiso is just what so many people have been waiting for in Bali; a place of culture, fun, great food and learning all rolled into one lovely package.
