The owners are an incredibly helpful and friendly couple. The food was amazing and fly high is an absolute must, lots of fun. The retreat is almost like it's on a little farm, it's so lovely watching the animals roaming around

"Unforgettable experience "
We had such an amazing time at the retreat, the entire experience was a great combination of fun and reflective. From the very start everyone was very welcoming and kind. The yoga session were really great as you could push yourself physically and sink into a restorative mindset.
The activities in the middle of the day were great as we got a chance to learn about the history of yoga and why it’s important today.
I would say one of my favourite times of the day apart from doing to the yoga was sitting down for dinner as it felt like a family dinner with everyone chatting and then at the end we would play uno which was a good laugh.
Overall we could not have asked for a better experience.

"An Amazing Experience!"
Sarah and Larry have built a very welcoming and peaceful yoga retreat. They treat their guests with great respect, really get to know you, provide you with awesome food, teach a lot about yoga and provide very unique yoga classes.
from Cambodia, May 2019
From start to finish i had a truely wonderful time at the Yoga Barn. Larry was so cheery when he picked my up to kindly take me to their place and Sarah greeted me with open arms on arrival. I was seeking a balance between finding calm and pushing my practise further and I certainly found that, and more.
Anything i wanted was catered for from future travel and yoga questions to having my shoes fixed was no problem. I learnt so much from Sarah both on and off the matt and I have no doubt that I will be returning to their lovely place. It was a laugh a minute with the cutest sheep and chickens running around too, joined by some lovely like-minded ladies on the retreat.
The dorm is not like any other dorm i’ve Stayed in, its not really fair to call it a dorm at all. It is SO spacious, the bed so comfy and beautifully decorated. Each morning we ate fresh fruit, much of high was picked by Sarah in the garden that morning - amazing!
Thank you Sarah and Larry for a wonderful few days. I initially booked two nights but had to extend for another as I was not ready to leave!

"Lovely yoga retreat in Kampot"
It was a lovely stay at Yoga Barn! Sarah and Larry are so nice and helpful and drove us to town a couple of times. The food is good and Sarah ordered more western food when we told her we had a lot of fried rice during our trip. Yoga classes were really good and we even tried fly high yoga, which was so much fun! There is a nice balance between activities and free time. The dorm is huge and comfortable and the bathrooms are big and clean. I would definitely go back!
from Cambodia, March 2020
"Perfect in Soo Many ways. "
Between Sarah & Ceran, they covered many different forms of Yoga with such passion & clarity.
Highly recommend this retreat from beginners to Advanced levels.
This has been a high light during our 7months traveling
from Cambodia, February 2020
I enjoyed the retreat, especially because Sarah is an amazing teacher. The program is high differentiate, and I loved the possibility of trying fly yoga. Sarah was open for questions and showing how to get into certain higher poses. Also the talk were very interesting. I did a Reiki session and felt better afterwards. The location is away from the noises of Kampot, however it may be that some neighbors have music at night. Yet in the dorm you would barely ear it. -The dorm is big and comfortable, but sometimes it was a bit too hot for me. Food was tasty, and sometime I would have eated a bit more. Water and tea were there all the time :)
thank you Sarah!
from China, February 2020
"Exactly what I needed"
I had a really stressful few months at work and booked this retreat as a break from everything. Wow! It was so much better than I expected. The dorms were huge and comfortable, the atmosphere was welcoming and non-judgemental, and from the minute I got there to the minute I left I felt so at home and happy. I can’t wait to go back!

Beautiful days at Yoga barn. Sarah and Larry are really nice. The yoga and meditation lessons were awesome and Sarah a great teacher. I wish I could stay longer. Highly recommend!
Thanks so much!
from Cambodia, February 2020
"Perfect place to calm down and reflect yourself "
This place has a beautiful energy. Sarah is a perfect and patient Trainer. During the stay (I took 5 days) you are going through different styles of Yoga & Meditation. So you can explore something new if you are already advanced or explore what’s best for you as a beginner.
I can highly recommend the Reiki healing. Thursday was for me a very special day, because you start doing promises with yourselves.
It’s was a perfect stay which made me reflecting myself and get power and motivation for my upcoming plans.
Dorm and bathroom were the cleanist I had through all my travels in Cambodia. Food is simple but always fresh. Larry, Sarah and the Cambodian employees were 100% caring!
For swimming and enjoy the weather the bohemian is close and more or less included. They have a nice pool & Spa offers.
I also had great people with me in the retreat. Highly recommend this place on your yogi or spiritual way! Thank you for everything.

"Awesome yoga and LIFE experience!"
Sarah and Larry were great hosts. We felt like family members and we had such a good time with them and their animal babies! The yoga and healing was the frosting on the cake!
from Cambodia, December 2019
"Excellent yoga and sound healing"
Loved the classes and the in-depth knowledge and passion of Sarah and Jules. The positivity was great and the other retreatees were friendly and added value to my experience. Loved the local bread and ice cream and card games in the evenings. Got time to reflect and be thankful. Loved all the nature and beautiful trees and flowers and animals. Great being close to good coffee places and not too far from town butbawsy enough to feel switched off from daily buzz and able to check out of real world for a bit. Learned a lot about Aruveda and Yoga in general and loved all the Hatha practice.
from New Zealand, December 2019
"Quality and chilled out retreat"
The cute sheep and chickens.
Sarah did a great job of teaching us the basics of yoga and she was very kind and knowledgeable with it all
from Vietnam, December 2019
Had a fantastic 5 days at Yoga Barn! Sarah and Larry make you feel completely at home and part of the family from the minute you arrive. The classes were excellent, varied across a range of topics and always explained in an accessible way so you can apply it to yourself. The group sizes are also quite small so it always feels personal. Classes don't start too early and there is plenty of time in the daily schedule for relaxing. I had a private room and the facilities were excellent, comfortable and modern. Location is perfect, a little way out if Kampot town so its peaceful but very easily accessible. Would highly recommend and wished I could have stayed longer!
from Vietnam, November 2019
"Amazing experience, highlight of my trip "
Thank you to Sarah, Larry and Davina for a wonderful five days. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating. The facilities were excellent, the dorm so spacious and spotlessly clean. The food was delicuous, all authentic homemade meals by a local. Great selection at breakfast too.
I really enjoyed the yoga and the variety that was on offer. Fly high was lots of fun. The best yin class I have ever been too! The setting was amazing, yoga takes place in the barn alongside the sounds of nature. It gets dark outside as the evening classes take place which adds to the relaxing atmosphere.
Overall it was a great experience. Can't fault the itinerary, a nice mix of activies and free time. I left feeling very refreshed and grounded.

"An amazing retreat "
We booked a 5 day retreat and it exceeded our expectations in every way. Sarah and Larry were really friendly and everyone that we met on the course was lovely. The location was excellent, close to town but far enough away to feel like a peaceful retreat. It was a great introduction to yoga, including discussions and trying Fly High yoga. 10/10 would recommend!
from Great Britain, November 2019
"Everything I was looking for with a little bit more "
From the moment I arrived I was made to feel part of the family, people came and went daily and I thought it might impact on the group but it never did. So where to start, if you're looking for a place to become a sanctuary for your time there, away from hustle and bustle and bars and restaurants, a place to switch off from distraction and switch on to truly looking at you, then this is the place to come. Twice daily meditation and asana practice which always varies to keep it interesting , daily talks to delve deeper into the true meaning of yoga and options for therapies and additional learning, all without expectations, you are given the choice of how little or much you wish to invest, speaking for myself I went all in and was far from disappointed, a place to reflect and find the answers you already know but are finally in a place you allow yourself to give .... simplistically perfect, welcoming hosts in Sarah and Larry, daily visits from the cook Rosa who makes lovely meals and not forgetting the sheep and chickens who bring an added bonus to this little sanctuary.... 100% recommended
from Cambodia, November 2019
"Guarantee for happy peaceful retreat "

Everything! The retreat was absolutely great from start to finish. Excellent hosts, great location and fab food. The yoga was so good and varied. I also learned about chakras and ayurveda. I booked a session of reiki and sound bowls and both were great. The yogabarn has sheep and chickens and are a welcome addition to pet or simply watch. I left feeling refreshed and ready for the next chapter in my life. Thoroughly recommend!

"Yoga barn kampot - must do! "
This little gem of a yoga retreat is nestled next to the mountains in kampot, with your daily dose of cows grazing by while doing yoga. Sarah and Lisa are incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and kind. They made a beginner like my self feel every bit of comfortable but also challenged me when I needed it! If you are looking for a place to grow in your meditation and yoga practice, while also being able to refuel and relax, this is the place to do it. Forever grateful to Sarah, Lisa, and Larry for their teachings and hospitality!
from Malaysia, August 2019
"A Great 7 Day Yoga Retreat"
The private room was clean and spacious, the vegetarian meals were always on time and cooked well. Sarah is a great instructor, learnt a lot from her. I haven't done Yoga before, but Sarah made it easy to understand and I did not feel intimidated in her sessions (although i am not very flexible at all). The classes and discussions were laid out perfectly and there wasn't a boring moment. Larry & Sarah are friendly, accommodative and very nice to be around. They make you feel very welcomed and part of the family at the Yoga Barn. Sound Healing session was good. Truly enjoyed the experience.
from Great Britain, May 2019
"Balm to the soul, body and mind"
Sarah and Larry's retreat at Yoga Barn is a beautiful gift everyone should give himself as an act of self-love. Everything (setting, facilities, food and programme) gives you the chance to spend some quality time with yourself, whilst benefiting from the support of 2 beautiful souls. Sarah's varied and patient approach to teaching enables you to achieve a holistic knowledge of what yoga and meditation practices are and entail; whilst Larry's humour and caring attitude contribute to make of the retreat the most intense and and the same time lighthearted week you may hope for. Discussions on yoga, chakra and ayurveda were a valuable and unmissable add-on. The trips were also super fun. Sarah and Larry are able to share their lights both on and off the matt. You step in at Yoga Barn as a guest, and you feel like stepping out as a family member.

"The best experience of my life "
I enjoyed every aspect of the retreat it was a perfect way to come into the new year.
I enjoyed the structure of each day, I also learnt Reiki level 1 and 2 whilst i was out in Bali!
I also enjoyed the amazing vegan food, beautiful setting and amazing tutors. Sarah and Larry are so lovely and I instantly felt at home and comfortable with them. I cannot thank them enough for an amazing opportunity ⭐️
from United States, January 2019
"Cant wait to do it again!"
The balance of yoga and other activities both culturally and spiritually were wonderful! We learned a lot and still had time to explore, all while sleeping to the sounds of the ocean waves. Absolutely beautiful location! Sarah and Larry did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

"So much more than I ever expected "
Everything, I enjoyed every moment and have come home with a whole new outlook. I’m so positive and have had my eyes opened to so many new experiences. I’ve come home refreshed and enthused and ready for new life adventures. Thanks Sarah for putting together such an amazing retreat. I will definitely be signing up again next year.
from Australia, December 2018
"An enjoyable experience just for me. "
The whole experience. Something that I wouldn’t of done for myself as I was going along with my sister. So I got to enjoy the destination being Bali, the food, having a holiday, and doing something new for myself which was yoga.

"The most wonderful by the sea yoga retreat experience ever!"
I loved everything about the amazing 'How are you Really? yoga and meditation retreat! It was such a happy life-enhancing experience from start to finish (didn't want it to end ;)) with memories to treasure and shared with such special people. Sarah and Larry have created something very special - and to be able to share their wisdom, knowledge, expertise, love and zest for life truly is a gift to all who attend their retreats!

"Had a fantastic time at the howareyoureally retreat"
Sarah in great and genuine. Loved the healing bowl session. Great variety.
from United States, September 2018
When I booked the retreat I expected that the biggest impact it would have would be on my performance on the mat- boy was I wrong. Sarah has created a truly unique experience that captivates mind, body and spirit. "How Are You Really?" allows you to reconnect with yourself, explore meditation practices, get out of your comfort zone and leaves you with an understanding of what works for you and why. There are a healthy offering of *optional* add ons and the yoga classes are the perfect blend of beginner and more advanced poses. I couldn't recommend booking yourself a week in this yogi's paradise enough- trust me you won't regret it!
Thank you Sarah and Larry - it was truly a pleasure!
from Philippines, August 2018
I joined Sarah for a wonderful retreat in August. The setting was just perfect- right on the beach in a relaxing part of Bali, quiet but not isolated, and the schedule was great and very well planned! Plenty to keep us busy with a great balance of yoga, meditation, pranayama and theory, plus two fabulous excursions :) also leaving us enough free time to enjoy the gorgeous surroundings! I completed my Reiki level 1 and 2 training during the week with Sarah and I’m so glad I did, the course was wonderful and fit nicely with everything else I learned during the retreat!
If you’re considering visiting- do it- you won’t regret it!!
Thank you so very much Sarah- it was just what I needed!
Keep doing what you’re doing- it’s perfect.

"Beachfront Paradise In the Land of the Gods"
The sprawling beachfront location was a highlight in itself. The 10 of us were housed in several bungalows connected by a huge garden. There were 2 sundecks and stairs provided direct access to the beach. We could swim in the sea, brood on the beach, enjoy the swing and seesaw, sunbathe or gather in the dining room to chat. The view from my upstairs room looked straight out to sea, and I fell asleep listening to the crash of the waves every night. The setting also provided our retreat leader with inspiring ways to deepen our experience, eg, the closing ceremony was done knee high in water, and another activity was conducted right on the beach . I requested my massage on the deck at night under the starry skies and also had a singing bowl treatment on the sundeck, with the sea breeze, sunshine and sloshing water in the background making it a very soothing and unforgettable experience.
The retreat program was carefully balanced between structured and free time. We had for self-exploration, to reflect, do optional workshops/treatments, or just chill. Two included day trips gave the group a chance to explore the area and learn something about the local culture. I also liked the fact that the program incorporated many styles of yoga (including Fly High) and different meditation techniques. At the end, the instructor gifted us with a set of mala beads each, and a handy sum up of tools, tips and techniques for us to continue our practice after the program. It was so thoughtful!
from United States, April 2018
"More than I would have hoped for!"
The location right at the beach, the beautiful shala overlooking the ocean, the participants from all over the world, the amazing classes led by Sarah and the relaxed atmosphere she created were fabulous! Suitable for beginners as well as advanced yoga practicioners, this retreat had it all: different yoga styles, discussions about the philosophy behind it, meditation, trips to explore the area, great vegetarian food and tons of fun! Sarah is an amazing teacher, I loved every second of her classes!!

"I was blown away with the whole experience. "
The accommodation was a Bohemian paradise with private beach and perfectly manicured garden. The yoga was well structured to both beginner and challenging enough for more advanced.
from Australia, March 2018
"Wow, what an incredible experience & totally lovely people!"
I chose this retreat for the combination of yoga, learning workshops, plus a couple of cultural/sightseeing trips too. And, I wanted to be close to the ocean. The view from the open air studio is incredible, straight out across the water to watch the fishing boats in the mornings and the most beautiful sunsets in the evening, all while yoga-ing.
From the moment I met Sarah and Larry, I immediately felt comfortable and with friends. Sarah is a warm, practical and passionate teacher, able to easily adapt to the different levels of experience, personality and language effortlessly and with some great British humour too which I really enjoyed. As the least mobile of our group, I never found myself feeling out of my depth. Larry does a wonderful job making sure everything runs smoothly, he is very thoughtful and works hard to make sure we all have everything we could possibly need to get the most from the week. There is a genuine feeling of support and care for each other which was beautiful.
The food was delicious, healthy and plenty of choice (Nuts for Cacao smoothie bowl, absolutely delicious!) The massage was fantastic and I took advantage of Sarah's reiki magic at the beginning of the week to really set myself up.The program is busy, but this is what I really wanted, to focus on me. There is time each day to relax by the pool or take a massage. A wonderful, thoughtful and comfortable place to learn, reflect and reset. Thank you Sarah, Larry and HAYR Feb18 Alumni
from New Zealand, March 2018
I cannot recommend this experience more highly.
I'm a 29M and work in a professional environment. I did a 4 day private retreat with Sarah as it was all that would fit with my dates.
From start to finish the experience was far greater than I expected.
I have practicing for about 3 years, and so was ready to move beyond just the Asanas, and be exposed to Pranayama and a few other things. (If these words put you off, don't let them. Sarah has a great way of teaching all of this to beginners).
1) The hotel - Puri Oka. Is all you could need. Working air con, comfortable bed. Literally on the beach front. It's not fancy, but spot on. The restaurant is amazing. The best smoothie bowls I had on Bali (including Canggu).
2) The studio. The best place to ever practice yoga. Either just after sunrise looking over the water, or as the sun sets in the other direction. Amazing colours to come out of chivasana to. Open air, could hear the waves which helped with some of the meditation.
3) The yoga. I had private instruction, so we got to pick out what I wanted to focus on. But also experienced things that I never would have known existed (and probably avoided). But the mix of vinyasa in the AM, then aerial/high fly or yin in the evenings was great.
4) The spiritual stuff. I'm not big on this, but I was in a place where I was open to it. And as a result I found i got a lot out of these sessions, a lot more than I would have anticipated.
Overall - you will not regret this :-)

I m usually not a big fan of comments and i ll try to do my best to translate in english So most of u can understand. This is exactly what i was looking for and more. The place is perfect for a retreat, outside of town but just 10min by tuktuk. The planning we had is great : two yoga classes every day, a meditation time every day, some really insteresting discussions about yoga and more, nice time to rest. The area is quiet so u can focus on your Practise. Two visits in town so u can still be connected with the moderne world. And amazing people and animals : Sarah and Larry are so warming that u feel home. Always available for a talk about life, yoga, travel, food... everything. Always smily. Tkx u so much both of u, made my retreat wonderful !!!!

"So much love"
Everything at the Yoga Barn Kampot was very very beautiful. Not only the accommodation (which is spacious, nice and new) but also the food and the location.
The best thing about my retreat were the people - I had such great company and even better teachers. Sarah and Larry are an amazing, generous couple who managed to create a yoga place of love. I felt good and learnt a lot of things. I was able to try new things without any pressure and had the time and space to find answers about my life/self.
Thank you so much!

"Een ervaring om nooit te vergeten!"
De retreat was heel goed georganiseerd met een goede balans tussen de verschillende soorten yoga, meditatie, gesprekken en eigen tijd.
Sarah is een hele bekwame instructeur met humor en perfecte kennis van zaken. Ze stond samen met haar man Larry altijd voor ons klaar.
from Germany, October 2018
Yoga courses were great, each class was different from the ones before. Especially Fligh-high Yoga was an unique experience which I would have never expected myself I could do, but Sarah teached us so well and so I was able to “go over my limits”.
Everything was very good organized and we didn’t have to take care about anything by our own- we could just concentrate on yoga and relaxing -GREAT!
Food was excellent (staff who cooked and served the meals were so nice and friendly) and I loved to stay with the group every night.
Thank you Larry for being the best driver and helping with everything.
Would totally recommend this retreat and I will definitely come back!
Everything exceeded my expectations (although my expectations were high).
You made my holiday😄
