Yoga classes

Yin

It is a gentle class where the long held asanas release connective tissues and stimulate chi in the meridian lines promoting health and flexibility.

Vinyasa

Vinyasa is a dynamic and faster-paced asana practice that focuses on connecting breath with movement in each posture. It provides an opportunity to deeply link mind and body awareness.

Hatha

Hatha is a practice combining breath, movement, and awareness into a series of postures that are slow moving which emphasizes alignment, flexibility, stability, strength, and balance.

FlyHigh or Aerial yoga

This type of yoga can lengthen the spine and increase flexibility using gravity and a hanging belt. It is an optimal method to perform restorative inversions and intensify grounding yoga poses.

Meditation

The benefits of regular meditation practice extend beyond just improving your yoga experience. You’ll notice reduced stress in your life, calmer reactions to everyday life experiences, and richer relationships with others, nature, and your self. Find freedom from within.

Meditation is a personal journey. Everyone is welcome to participate in guided meditations, regardless of your background and or familiarity with meditation or yoga. Meditation can be a spiritual experience or simply a calming, stress and anxiety reducing practice. Discover what arises from within as you start to slow everything down and quiet the mind.

  • Rachael Ravinge

    A mother, wife, lover, sister, and daughter, Rachael is similar to you constantly shifting and changing. After graduating from university, Rachael signed up for her first adventure moving to New York City, working for large corporations and it was there where she first traded her marathon running shoes and eventually her career for bare feet and a yoga mat. Her practice on the mat has evolved just as drastically; first connecting with hot power yoga craving the sweat and workout until she discovered the entire body, mind, and spiritual aspects of the practice which changed her life.

Gili Trawangan is an idyllic paradise island, offering a little slice of tropical heaven. Located one and a half hours from Bali and 10 minutes from mainland Lombok, this small island has a seven-kilometers perimeter and home to about 2,000 people. Gili does not allow any motorized vehicles on the island and the only modes of transportation are by foot, bike, and horse cart. This creates an environment that is slower paced and allows a person to truly unwind.

The ocean and coral surrounding the island are home to some of the largest amount of biodiversity in the world and are set upon white sandy beaches allowing you to fully enjoy the tropical environment, get lost in the waves and follow the current. The magical essence of these Indonesian islands is commonly known, creating an enlivening experience where true spiritual transformation can exist.

Please book your flights to arrive at Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). This is the most accessible international airport to the island. Over 20 different fast boat companies leave Bali every morning and cruise for one and a half hours before reaching the sandy shores of Gili Trawangan.

Arrival by ferry

The island is only reachable only by boat. Well, technically you can helicopter in, but for 99% of the people come by boat. Soraya Yoga Wellness Center is available to arrange tickets at competitive prices either via the airport or fast boat upon request. Please send an inquiry for more information and note that all transportation costs are at the expense of the participant.

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 100% of the total price.

    "After nights of partying in Gili T, fly high yoga in Soraya gives you what you need to continue having fun on the island. The instructor, Itha, makes sure that I-a newbie in yoga-feel encouraged and ready to any pose. Located in a secluded area, just next to the hill, the studio is just perfect. Love it!"

    "I went to a beautiful sunset yoga session with Ruth and it was well worth the early rise. Such a beautiful setting on the beach.Doesn't matter if you've never done yoga before, but for people who have it was also sufficiently challenging. I also learnt a few new moves! Ruth talked everyone through each pose clearly and made sure they understood what they should feel etc.Wish I'd been there for a few more sessions as it was a highlight of my trip with such an amazing backdrop and left me feeling great. Thanks!"

    "A little difficult to find but sooooo worth the 5/10 minute walk from the main strip. The studio itself is really lovely and Rachel is a wonderful teacher. Her beautiful personality shines through her teaching, making her classes so calming and enjoyable. Highly recommend trying the Cranio Yin. I'd be there daily if I could but unfortunately I had to leave the island. If you enjoy yoga or just want to give it a try and are visiting Gili T, Soraya Yoga is a must.Visited June 2015"

    "We had an amazing time at the yoga center. We found flyers about it on the first day we were on Gili Trawangan and went to Hatha yoga class three times. We are both beginners and even though there were more advanced yogis in the class as well the class suited everybody. We were a maximum of 5 people, once it was only the 2 of us. Rachel is very nice and explained very well. The room is amazing. I would go there every week if I lived on this island. :)Visited June 2015"

    "I wanted to practice yoga whilst on Gili T and was so fortunate to find Soraya yoga run by the lovely Rachel. The studio (gorgeous) has only been open a few months, the classes were small (I was the only participant one class) and varied. Rachel is a very knowlegable calm, attentive teacher and it was a joy to attend her classes.Visited May 2015"

    " I was looking for a yoga studio to practice while on vacation. This place was perfect. The location is about 10 min away from main strip. It is an outdoor studio that looks into a grassy knoll. The hatha class was great. The instructor provided variations so that everyone was challenged. We worked on arm balances which were really fun and not something I had tried in my practice. If looking for a place to practice yoga while on vacation on gili t this should be it. The cost was about 8 usd for 90 min.Visited April 2015"

    "Rachel gives personal attention to all Soraya Yoga visitors, be it in the yoga classes she teaches or as room guests.The center is located inland, in a quiet and peaceful part of the island accessible in 10 minutes on foot from the harbour. "

    "The rooms are well designed, very comfortable and set out around a central area which fosters a community feeling."

    "The spacious yet intimate yoga space faces a green field, making it easy to get into a "yoga mood"."

    "As for the yoga classes, they feel like personalized lessons even when the space is full !"

    "So I strongly recommend Soraya Yoga to anybody visiting Gili T.Visited February 2015"
