Did you know there's a beautiful island resort with a long golden beach and gorgeous wooden chalets built over the sea just over 2 hours by boat 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 friends. 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 will be welcomed and well taken care of.


*Super early bird price until 24th July: $950

"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 and with Yoga students we all love it!
This is an Eco friendly, simple, back to nature resort built with natural materials and love.
This place has a special place in my heart.

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, Parcitipant 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 for our Yoga holiday each is for 2 people sharing.
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's lots of fresh fruit, veggies with a good balance of deserts and treats!

I use all the tools I have gathered over decades of doing Yoga, living in 5 countries, bringing up my own special and unique children to bring you not just the physical benefits of Yoga but also to help bring more resilience and serenity into your life.

In this retreat our 2 hour Yoga classes will be a healthy mix of focus and hard work to warmth, lightness and humour.

 

THE YOGA

In this retreat our 2 hour 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 align flow or a Hatha class. And every early evening a slower, more relaxed Hatha or Yin.
So you'll receive  6 two hour Yoga classes from Thursday early evening to early Sunday morning.


There's an extra large chalet over the sea, so we'll have plenty of space and shade and the sound of waves to lull you into a blissful Savasana. 

As well as Hatha Yoga, slow flow and Yin I'll also guide you through visualisations and some lovely meditations. 

We'll also incorporate some fun and self-empowering philosophical learning and workshop work in these longer than usual classes.
They'll also be a sea, earth and nature Goddess to inspire us along the way!

"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.
