During this retreat, you will stay either in a shared or private room at the Pondok Pisang Centre. The center has beautiful shabby chic style eco-bungalows that have mostly been constructed using recycled materials. The center has a large and spacious yoga shala right by the ocean for all types of group activities. Pondok Pisang also has its own restaurant for you to enjoy.

All bungalows have hot water showers and are surrounded by a large tropical garden. All rooms also have garden and ocean views. Six of the cottages have one room upstairs and one downstairs. One cottage has only one room. There are single and double beds available. The detached, two-story, shared accommodation will be home to no more than three like-minded guests per cottage.

Before you start reading about what this meditation, mindfulness, and yoga retreat is about, stop for a moment, close your eyes, take three slow deep breaths, and then ask yourself how are you really? Just sit with the response for a few moments, take a few sacred seconds of your day to make it all about you. Doesn't it feel great? During this retreat, you will give yourself a well-earned rest to also boost your body, mind, and soul.

During this retreat, you will enjoy two daily yoga classes along with meditation and pranayama practices. The retreat will also include various meditation techniques such as walking meditation, chanting, singing bowl meditation, and adult coloring. You will be guided through Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga asana classes in the breathtaking, open air, ocean-side yoga shala.

Along the way, you will discover tools such as meditation and mindfulness, as well as look at the chakras and Ayurveda to deepen your understanding of how you really are. You will listen to the natural rhythms of nature from the moment you rise to the moment it lullabies you to sleep which will remind you to find and follow your own gentle flow and give yourself permission to relax and unwind.

Because How Are You Really? Yoga Retreat is aware that this yoga retreat is also a holiday on the paradisiac island of Bali, they want you to feel the true essence, spirituality, and culture of this alluring Indonesian island. With this in mind, this retreat will also include two one-day trips.

The first trip will feature a visit to the breathtaking Ujung Water Palace and an afternoon visit to the beautiful Tirta Gangga Water Temple which includes a swim in the fresh spring water pool. The second day will feature a trip to see the local Balinese spiritual healer, a short trek through the jungle to his hillside home.

This retreat has been specifically designed to accommodate any level of experience, age, or gender. Sarah will guide you through the week using over five years of teaching experience and her lifetime as a student to meander from one of the eight limbs of yoga to another.

With Sara's lighthearted nature and relaxed attitude towards life, she will share her wisdom and experience so you can leave the week fully prepared. Next time you are asked "How are you, really?", be sure you will be able to reply with an energetic "I am the best I have ever been!"

This retreat will be held at the Pondok Pisang Retreat Centre in the village of Mendira in Karangasem, East Bali. Pondok Pisang is the perfect place for a holiday retreat in Bali, nestled among the coconut trees with a private beach excellent for swimming and snorkeling.

During this retreat, you will be served daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Pondok Pisang Centre restaurant has a commitment to your well-being and it is reflected in the choice of dining options. The newly launched vegetarian selection is the perfect choice for health-conscious guests with sumptuous fresh juices, delicious homemade salads, and Asian-inspired Western dishes all featuring on the menu.

East Bali is the spiritual home of Balinese cuisine and for this reason, the Pondok Pisang Centre created a second incredibly unique menu that reflects its heritage and the culinary tradition of the Karangasem region. An authentic signature dish is the delectable sticky black rice pudding with coconut milk and banana.

A house favorite is dessert, the black rice pudding with coconut milk and banana. For a snack, you may try the tasty fried bananas which are a perfect match with tea or coffee.

During your free time, you may explore the surrounding unspoiled area of Candidasa or stay in quiet contemplation on your veranda while the soft scent of frangipani flowers soothes the senses. Since there will be a perfect blend of activities and free time during this week, you will experience a retreat environment and also have the opportunity to feel like you have had a holiday.

You may try the many restaurants serving both Indonesian and Western food in Candidasa, walk around the huge Lotus Pond, which is situated on the Candidasa high street, or shop for souvenirs, antiques, and clothes along the main road, where there are many shops. If you want to have some me time, there are many spas which offer massages and other wonderful traditional treatments.

You may climb the many steps to the Shiva-Pura temple, visit Gedong Gandhi Ashram, which is Bali’s oldest ashram, where you can walk around inside and maybe even spend time in a workshop. Snorkeling, scuba diving, and even exploring through a submarine are great ways to see Indonesia’s beautiful coral and underwater sea life. You may also book a relaxing boat trip around the nearby islands.

You may also hire a guide to take you trekking around the many hills surrounding Candidasa, rent a bicycle or scooter, and go explore places such as the Goa Lawah Bat Cave, the Kerta Gosa Museum, or the Kusamba Beach, where you can see the locals salt panning.

The Pondok Pisang Centre also offers Reiki training for levels one and two where you will learn the ancient healing practice of Reiki to become a certified Reiki healer for an additional fee of 300 USD. Or you may simply try a Reiki session to experience the sensation of Reiki energy for an additional cost of 30 USD. You may also book another sound healing treatment for 30 USD.

    Reseña de Iris Ackerman de Países Bajos

    CONS No me gustó: I really liked everything!

    PROS Me gustó: The diversity of the yoga classes. Since we did not do only Hatha, but also Yin, Nidra and Fly yoga!

    Respuesta del organizador: Thank you Iris for your review and for joining us on the retreat. I'm glad you benefitted from our program. Enjoy the rest of your travels and I look forward to hearing about your new adventures. Best wishes. Sarah and Larry

    CONS No me gustó: The rooms, the food wich was to little and overpriced and also not very healthy even If it was vegetarian, the fact we couldnt choose our own starters and had to eat what the yogateachers husband orderd every day. The last days we didnt even have starters. The singing balls which was a Joke practically. To little food for breakfast not even juice. The fact that the husband of the yogateacher was around when eating and had bigger portions than the rest of the group even If he wasnt a part of the group really. The price of waterbottles in the studio we where offered to buy at 40000 rhp. In shop they are around 2-4000!! No water water in room either.

    PROS Me gustó: The location, the yogastudio, the views and some of the yogasessions and the fact that the yogateacher was kindhearted, the trip to the wateroalace was ok but the lunch should ofcourse been included concerning the price of the retreat.

    Respuesta del organizador: I'm truly saddened and confused to read this. I wish you had addressed your concerns during the week, they would have been so easily rectified. I will clarify the main points so future guests will be under no confusion about what we offer. With over 30 dishes to choose from and a fantastic selection of Indonesian and Western food it is some of the best food we've tasted in Indonesia and we have been here 4yrs! You choose your own starters and mains, these are included in the retreat package so I don't understand why you say they were overpriced as you didn't have to pay for any! Portion sizes are the same for everybody. Juice is available alongside breakfast. Water, hot and cold, and a selection of teas are available free of charge all week. We have never, and will never, charge for water. The water is kept in the Shala which you have access to 24/7. We sell empty, reusable, BPA free, water bottles to try to keep our plastic consumption down. We make no profit from them and you are under no obligation to buy them. We do also provide cups. This is all explained in the welcome talk. Such a shame you left feeling disappointed as this wasn't the impression you gave throughout the week and certainly wasn't what we hoped for. Best wishes for the future, Sarah and Larry.

    PROS Me gustó: Que vous soyez débutant ou confirmé, Sarah est la personne idéale pour une retraite de yoga. À l'écoute, disponible, sensible et très technique, tous les éléments sont là pour progresser rapidement. Les groupes de petites taille sont aussi parfait pour créer des liens ce qui rends ce moment de partage encore plus agréable. Le lieu est agréable avec la salle de yoga à l'étage et ouverte sur la mer, pour une totale déconnexion. Grâce à cette retraite, le yoga fait désormais parti de ma vie, merci Sarah et Larry. Un bon anglais est toutefois utile pour vraiment profiter de l'expérience.

    Respuesta del organizador: Thank you very much for your review, we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your week with us! I am humbled that I have inspired you to continue your yoga practice and look forward to when our paths cross again! Sarah & Larry

    Very creative and rich programme

    CONS No me gustó: The programme was a little too packed with activities, and I felt I did not have enough time and space for myself. Also, I did not like the room and the food so much. The sea in front of the hotel was dirty, so I swam only once.

    PROS Me gustó: The programme was full with all kinds of yoga, talks about chakras, ayurveda, and much else, and sightseeing in the area, especially the tour to water palaces exceeded my expectations. I also had a private reiki training. The view from the hotel and yoga shala was amazing.

    Respuesta del organizador: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review & indeed for joining us on our retreat. We are very happy that your overall experience was a positive one. There was a storm that washed in debris from the ocean, it is not a usual occurrence and we are happy it didn't affect the swimming pool or your snorkel trip. Feedback from our guests is always appreciated & acted upon so we can improve our quality & service for future retreats. Sarah and Larry.

    "Great Yoga Retreat"

    "Sarah is a phenomenal yoga teacher and just a beautiful person inside and out. "

    "The theme "How are you Really" was spot on. Sarah and Larry made sure that you had time for introspection pondering that question."

    "The retreat schedule was great. We learned a lot about yoga, chakra's, auyervdic practices, yin yoga and yoga nidra. The excursions to the water palace and mountain Shaman were interesting and informative about the local Balinese culture. "

    "The class participants were literally from around the globe. We bonded and shared a lot of laughs and even a few tears as we learned about ourselves and each other."

    "The 'How are you really?' Yoga retreat was one of the best holidays I've ever had. It was the perfect combination of yoga, meditation, sightseeing and relaxation. The hotel was great, with wonderful food and a great location, along with an onsite Shala with panoramic sea views to die for; perfect for yoga practice. The excursions were lovely too, especially the water palace."

    "Sarah was a great instructor who pushed your boundaries but never pushed you over the edge. As a result, I felt my practice really improved and it has encouraged me to find a better instructor at home. The retreat also introduced me to meditation and pranayama, something which is hard to find in yoga classes in my area. However, I do try and practice them at home."

    "Most importantly, I felt that I came away from the retreat a better person with more appreciation for the good things in life, and that is thanks to Sarah (and Larry too!) I hope to see them again on another retreat in the future."

    "The retreat has been excellent. Sarah is an amazing yoga teacher and a really enjoyed following her classes. Classes are accessible to all levels because Sarah always give many options from the easiest to the most difficult, which is great. The place was also amazing and perfect to relax with pool and seafront view. Discussions were interesting and day trips as well. The retreat has really great value considering all the activities included and the quality of the classes. Sarah and Larry are very kind and friendly and so was the atmosphere. Highly recommended!"

    "La retraite était de qualité, les séances de yoga et de méditation proposées conformes à mes attentes. Sarah est très bonne professeur de yoga. Son mari Larry est tout à fait disponible pour chacun d'entre nous si besoin. L'hôtel était parfait, des chambres en bord de plage, dans un village de pêcheurs, peu de monde, un Bali calme et tranquille. La nourriture proposée est bonne. Bref je garde un excellent souvenir de ce séjour que je recommande. Il est conseillé d'avoir un bon niveau d'anglais pour comprendre les cours et les méditations. "

  • Reseña de Gilly de Reino Unido

    "I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Sarah on a yoga retreat on Gili Air in late 2013. I was at a stage in my life when I knew I could be a better version of myself but not really having any idea how to unlock this person. I was stressed, lacking in confidence with no clear direction. Sarah is a beautiful person, inside and out and has such an amazing outlook on life it's easy to be guided by her. I had meltdowns, tears and moments of complete clarity during the week and Sarah was there every step of the way to offer a words of wisdom and guidance. She is calm, motivated, knowledgeable, spiritual, flexible (in all ways!) and above all wants to bring out the best in you. Let Sarah guide you along the path and allow you to become that better version of you, you won't regret it, I guarantee it."

  • Reseña de Carly Hinds de WA

    "I have always been absolutely thrilled with my yoga classes with the lovely Sarah Thane-McKenzie. From my first class, she has always been so friendly, warm & welcoming in her own down to earth & humble way & Sarah always made the classes interesting, informative & fun. Every class has been unique & Ive always learned & experienced something new each class. She is especially attentive to newcomers & took the time to guide us into the postures correctly (postures that I had been unknowingly doing wrong for years!). I especially love her meditation sessions at the end of each class. "

    "Thank you Sarah for always delivering your classes in an enthusiastic & diverse way that keeps me coming back for more!!"

    "Sarah is the teacher who introduced me to real yoga. I mean, with her I discovered the joy of just bringing awareness to my body and explore the benefit of a daily practice. A deep quietening of the mind and a sense of being centered in my body. Sarah has made her entire life a yoga practice, and it's just inspiring. I recommend her a thousand times. Or maybe more."
