Freediving is the ultimate way to experience the underwater world! At Freedive Gili we teach you to hold your breath and dive free of tanks and bulky equipment, gliding down in silent weightlessness, all in the warm clear tropical waters of Gili Trawangan just East of Bali. Gili Yoga also gives you the opportunity to awaken your mind and body through yoga in one of our daily daily classes set in a beautiful shala in the heart of the island. Our shop an shala are situated at the harbour and are easily found on arrival.

I will start by saying, I am 26, and Gili T was my first stop of my travels in Indonesia. I did not stay as a guest in one of the bungalows; however, I probably spent more time there as a new student. I participated in the freediving course and I was a regular to the yoga classes. Ill start... More

Cannot say enough good things about Freedive Gili - the instructors, the facility, the location - they have truly earned their reputation as one of the top freedive centers in the world. The Gili Islands offer conditions that are rarely found elsewhere in the world. For our training days we had calm seas, warm water and incredible visibility. This combined... More

freedive gili was an outstanding experience for me. i went into freedive gili with pretty high expectations and they , by far, exceeded those expectation.

I completed my 200hrs yoga teaching programme in November 2016 in Gili Yoga and the whole experience has been just wonderful and eyes opening.

I'd didn't stay at Gili freedive but I was fortunate enough to do numerous classes there which were without a doubt some of the best I've ever done. Couldn't rate it highly enough, yoga it's it's purest form. The sheer joy of movement. Will definitely be back to check the freediving out.

Strangely enough TripAdvisor, my first review on Gili Yoga, which was 'pending' somehow has deleted from my account - leaves one sceptical of the entire review process. Gili Yoga, Freedive Gili and Garden Bungalows all run under the same umbrella here and the pictures on the website DO NOT reflect the actual accommodation. This is positioned about 50 metres from...

Jodi R, Your review and the review of your friend PosyB, who stayed with you, are aimed at damaging us and are not truthful. You were unhappy because the island was not what you were expecting when you visited at New Year, and because we were not a Yoga retreat center (which we do not claim to be). We are... More

We thought we were going to a yoga retreat. It's actually a Freediving school with a yoga shala and some basic bungalows out the back. We got woken at 4.30am every morning by muslims chanting (loudly) fro. The mosque nearby. Yoga was okayish. Rooms were very rustic and plenty of mosquitoes in the outdoor bathrooms. I found the hosts and... More

I came to Freedive Gili wanting to get better in freediving. The course was expensive but I decided to look past that and pay for it since I believe these skills would be beneficial to my current profession as a scuba instructor. I paid and was told to come to the shop later that night for an orientation. Upon meeting... More

Let us be honest with the readers Maxwell. You came in to the center on the morning of your course hungover and still drunk not wanting to do the course any more. You were out at 2am at Rudy's nightclub that same morning where you accosted my shop manager (who was obviously not working at that time or place) demanding... More
