Did you know there's a beautiful island resort with a long golden beach and gorgeous wooden chalets built over the sea just a boat away ride from Singapore?

Would you love to relax on this beach gently swinging in a shaded hammock as you read that book you've been dying to get to for months? 
Or perhaps just gaze out to sea letting your eyes rest on the horizon?
Or chat with new like minded people?
Or catch up with an old buddy you come along with?


There's nothing like doing Yoga as the sun rises and then sets over the ocean. Imagine listening to the waves gently lapping under you as you're guided through the best Savasana of your life.

This is a Yoga holiday where as soon as you step off the boat you'll disconnect from the stress of everyday life.  You'll have all the time you need to unplug and recharge. Literally. There's no wifi.


And it doesn't matter what level of Yoga you are at.  
Complete beginners and more advance Yoginis and Yogis are all welcomed and well taken care of.

The Early Bird price will end on Jan 7th



"I thoroughly enjoyed Sarah's yoga holiday. It had just the right balance of amazing, personalised yoga classes and a fun, relaxing holiday. I felt that I got stronger and more informed in my yoga in the time away, relaxed a lot, and made some wonderful, new friends. Everyone was very friendly, the food was great and the resort is lovely. I thought the lack of air-con would bother me but it wasn't an issue. The chalets are really nice and comfortable. The beach is stunning and there's lots to do at the resort. I enjoyed swimming and relaxing in the hammocks. Sarah was so good at getting the fun going as well. I wouldn't hesitate to join the next one. I was sad to have to leave!"
Evelyn Bookless, children's author and September retreat participant

 


The great thing about this Yoga holiday is that there isn't just amazing Yoga on offer twice a day.

If you would like to spend some time doing some more active pursuits the resort offers plenty of beach and ball games, fishing and host of other activities.

Or you can just relax all day on the beach.
And at night, lie on the sand under the huge canopy of stars, counting shooting stars.

Or join the nightly beach bonfire where you can toast marshmallows as the waves lap the beach with their gentle reassuring rhythm.

There are no cars on Sugi island so the air is clean and fresh and noise comes only from nature. There's just the sound of waves, the odd jumping fish, birds and a wooden gong to announce the next meal.
 

THE PLACE

I have been to the Telunas Beach resort in Indonesia many times with my family as well as leading retreats and each time I step off the boat onto the wooden jetty feel a big smile widen on my face.
The simple natural surroundings, genuinely happy and friendly staff, the sea, trees, sky and sand all combine in a wonderful contrast to the rushed concrete city lives we live.

This is an Eco friendly, simple, back to nature resort built with natural materials and love.

I've always felt very at home here and felt that the natural rhythms of nature come back to me so easily on this magical island.
The rhythm of the tides, the huge night skies full of stars and being outside all day in sea air sets the stage beautifully to truly unplugging from the stress of city life.
 

"I had a wonderful time at Sarah’s retreat at Telunas. Sarah created such a warm, supportive and fun atmosphere, and her yoga classes were thoughtful and inspiring. The resort was beautiful and perfect for a break away from everything."
Emma Kirby, Yogini at our May 2018 retreat


All chalets are generous in size, bright and breezy, have a double bed and a choice of 2 single beds. 
All chalets comfortably fit 4 but I've limited us to  2 people to a chalet so you have more space to move around and feel more at ease.
I’ve also opened up 3 deluxe villas for people who'd prefer a room to themselves.  Especially great for those whose priority is to really catch up on some sleep.


Everyone is invited to join (Yoginis and Yogis alike) and if you're traveling solo I'll happily match you up with someone you'll get along with if you're not bringing a friend.
 


All meals are buffet style and are a lovingly prepared blend of local and international dishes. 
There is lots of fresh fruit, veggies with a good balance of deserts and treats. The kitchen is used to adapting and adding dishes for vegetarians, vegans and people with allergies.
 


ABOUT SARAH
 

I'm an experienced, fully trained Yoga teacher E-RYT500 and have been teaching Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga full time since 2007.

I began Yoga as a teenager and have been in love with it's art and science ever since. 
I draw on my years of experience to teach you how to do Yoga poses with good safe alignment that fits your unique body.

 

metelunas.JPG

I use all the tools I have gathered over decades of practicing and teaching Yoga, my love of art, psychology and poetry, adapting to and living successfully in 5 very different countries as well as the challenges and learning while bringing up my own special and unique children to bring you not just the physical benefits of Yoga but also to build more resilience and serenity into your life.
 

 

THE YOGA

In this retreat our twice daily Yoga classes will be a healthy mix of focus and hard work to warmth, lightness and humour.
Every morning you'll be lead through either a slow alignment based flow sequence or a Hatha class. And in the afternoon a slower, more relaxed Hatha or Yin Yoga class.
I’ll also lead you through meditations, visualisations and practical mindful techniques.
You'll receive  6 two hour Yoga classes from Thursday evening to early Sunday morning and will feel your understanding of Yoga and your pose practice jump to to the next level.

We'll also incorporate some fun and self-empowering philosophical learning and workshop work as well as some chakra and inspired learning from a hindu goddess or two in these longer than usual classes.

We went back to nature with no wifi, no TV, lots of Yoga, poetry, great company, new friends, roasting marshmallows on the bonfire, learning to do pottery, falling absolutely asleep on the beach, journaling, rope course crossing and a spot of impromptu singing. It all made a very fun but also recharging and restoring few days. My mind is clearer and feeling much calmer and ready to explore my creativity again which I had put on hold for a while. Thank you Sarah for such beautiful days

THE LOGISTICS


Accommodation, all meals, six Yoga workshops, beach games and activities and the boat transfer from Batam to Telunas and back are all included in the price.
There's only a weak and very unreliable wifi connection (which to me is a big bonus!) so you'll need to catch up with emails before coming.


The ferries from Singapore to Sekupang terminal, Batam and return need to be booked and paid for by you with the ferry company. It's very quick and easy to do online. 
 
Bearer the time you will need to book the 11.10 am ferry from Singapore to Sekupang to leave on the 27th September.
The return ferry, from Sekupang, Batam back to Singapore on the 30th at 12.30 must be booked too!
The return ticket from Singapore Harbour Front to Sekupang (Batam) is around SG$50.

"Thank you once again for a wonderful week of yoga, relaxation, healthy eating and above all great company !  I had an amazing time and felt honoured to be part of your retreat kula.  You're an inspirational teacher Sarah - thank you for opening your heart, sharing your strength, wit and wisdom... I can't wait for your next retreat !! 💓"
Carolyn Sivaram. Pre-natal Yoga teacher.

"Sarah’s retreat really opened my mind (and heart!) to a new way of being. She offered several practical ways I could enrich my busy and often overwhelming lifestyle by taking time for myself, in small, manageable ways.  I’m now determined to put these changes into practice.  I hadn’t realised how much I was neglecting my own self-care.  I feel rejuvenated, energised and inspired by her warmth and gentle guidance.  She is also very down-to-earth and explained everything really well, making this a perfect course for anyone new to yoga. Thank you!!"
Beth Cone, Yoga student.
 

"I feel very fortunate to have found Sarah as part of my Yoga journey and can’t recommend the experience of her teaching enough for anyone, especially people new to Yoga who like me are trying to seek out the most authentic, skilled and generous teachers to learn from."
Carl Jackson, VP Linde Group Taiwan.
 

"I am so lucky to have started my yoga journey with Sarah. Yoga with Sarah is more than just mastering complex yoga poses. It is about the journey of inner self development and alignment, to learn to listen to your body and to protect yourself in every pose. To me every class is a lesson that is applicable to my daily life."
Pramilah Streram, Dentist.
