I am yoga practicioner and took 3 classes at Olop Yoga Studio while staying in Seminyak - it was a precious experience. Olop Studio is the most beautiful place I have ever practiced yoga in. Olop is so modest and generous in sharing his knowlege. He gave us many detailed instructions and hints while we were in asanas. After the class we were offered tea and sitting all together. The experience is beyond words. It is a true satsang.

A very different yoga experience set in a beautiful garden setting surrounded by the sound of peacocks, ducks and support of exceptional teacher.

I’ve just begun practicing yoga. This was a beautiful experience. Wonderful surroundings and a very good teacher. Although it was an intermediate class it was doable for the beginner, with the aid of wonderful tuition.
I would highly recommend this studio even just to soak in the atmosphere.

I found this yoga class on trip advisor, and looking at the amazing reviews, i decided to give it a go.
First of all, i am a begineer in yoga, i have very minimal yoga experience. I made sure that Olop ( the teacher) aware of that
Classes started at 4:15 pm, nice ambience. Crowd was good.
The positive :
- Olop is very very experienced in yoga
- Nice yoga studio, open air concept
- They provide nice equipments ( mat, blocks, belt, pillow, etc)

The negative that i experienced is solely based on my review as a begineer in yoga.
- the class was very fast paced.. and when i was trying and struggling to do the yoga poses.. olop was actually correcting me in a half scolding kind of way. And that happened few times. So instead of making me feel encourage, i actually felt pressurized.. The japanese lady (his assistant) also gave out the smirking smile whenever i did the pose wrong..again.. not encouraging.
- I came in with a mindset that yoga is suppose to be a relax and peaceful experience, but it felt like a military camp instead. Olop was yelling and giving out instructions and explaining, and i was struggling following all the instructions.
- We were doing the shoulder stand pose, and i didnt feel like pushing myself to that extend because i was worry about my cervical spine. But instead, Olop was pushing me to do the pose...i was very reluctant and i tensed out..and now i can feel that my back pain actually paining :(
All in all, i left the place feeling horrible..
I guess this place is suitable for all of you who experienced in yoga, but for begineer maybe not the friendliest.

I was in Canggu and Seminyak for a 10 day yoga holiday. I took classes in different places and met very good yoga teachers. But I have to say that Olop's Iyenger class was my favorite. I only managed to do one class but will definitely return for many more with him. If you're interested in learning about proper alignment of the body and not just break out into a sweat in yoga classes, Olop's classes are a must!

I took the beginner class yesterday. Olop was fantastic. He's knowledgeable, directive, and warm... quite fun as a teacher. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. It was full so get there a few minutes early. I will go back...

Part of me wants this to remain a fairly secret and isolated to thise that stumble upon this little gem.
Im new to yoga and wanted a well educated and experienced teacher and environment to persue some different yoga teachings.
What an amazing setting and teacher, i never felt like i was out of place or stupid, Olop is a brilliant teacher and his asst was so helpful. Smile, breath and stretch.
2 hour beginner session was 100,000 rp, great value.
Get there as early as you can as it fills up fast.

This yoga studio doesn't have a web site so it can be had to work out the schedule, but if you look through the photos someone has posted a photo of the times. I went on a Wednesday afternoon. I have been practicing for about one year and found the class excellent. I especially loved the location, a short walk from the main road the studio is set in a tranquil, lush garden and the studio itself is a beautiful old style Balinese building. I wish I had more time to attend more classes but will definetly go back next time I'm in seminyak.

I stayed at the Drupadi area and was thrilled to find that Olop's class was within walking distance to the villa I was at. After a bit of effort trying to find his studio, I found him after saying 'Selmat Pagi' to some geese along the way... very quickly I found that I was the worst student in the class but really couldn't care less since I was there to learn with an open heart and mind... I think Olop is an excellent teacher and am going to join his classes in Singapore. The whole experience was superb save for the mosquitoes (remember to apply insect repellent which is available at the studio), end off with some chai tea and a chat with the students...
