Lisa Nelson

Lisa teaches from the heart and could not imagine herself doing anything else. She believes that every individual and every body are unique, and that uniqueness should be respected both on and off the mat. As such, she gently guides her students to find the appropriate practice for themselves in the present moment, rather than teaching from a one-size-fits-all approach. Lisa has trained in the styles of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Aerial, and Yin Yoga and continues to have a regular Pranayama and Meditation practice that she loves to share with anyone who is interested in learning.

"A truly life changing experience "

The content was extremely rich and I learned so much about the body, yoga and myself.

The schedule was intense, but well put together. Having heard about others, it really is the most conducive to learning.

The teaching was incredible - teachers built your knowledge up and took the time to check in regularly both on a student and personal level.

The food was very good. Breakfast was certainly my favourite with fresh fruit juices and smoothie bowls.

"Happy Yogi, happy time!"

I took part at Yoga Bliss’ YTTC at Lembongan this year! Best choice ever! Gwen and Shawna taught as everything we wanted to know about Ashtanga and our Yin practice. Philosohy and Anatomy were absolutely interesting and Gwen and Shawna made it easy for everyone to follow, without making any shortcuts. We also learned different Pranayama and Meditation technics and involved them more and more in our daily practice, everyone in his/her own tempo and knowledge. Food was healthy, delicious and local, you can choose your own option, vegan, veggie or meat. Over all I had an amazing time, met amazing people and would do it absolutely again! Thanks Gwen and Shawna, Namaste!

"For me it was not what I expected"

The quality of the teaching is very good. Both Gwen and Gina were committed to passing on their knowledge. The island is beautiful.

"Best decision ever made. "

Gina and Gwen are incredible at what they do. They gave me a whole new understanding of yoga and my personal practise, which I'll be forever grateful for. The shala, the food and the homestay (Radya) was all in high standard, and I couldn't have asked for more. I feel ready to embrace my future as a yoga-teacher with the new tools this course has given me.

I can't recommend this experience highly enough. I would do it all over again at any time.

So I have never tried yoga before, and didn't ever think I would but after a long chat one evening with Gwen (the very impressive instructor) I decided to give it a go. I went for the ashtanga class, not sure if that's how it's spelled. I was very pleasantly surprised I first thought it would just be slow stretching, but how wrong was I. Gwen had told me it would be physical but manageable and she wasn't wrong. I was sweating in minutes and enjoying myself lots to think about but she explained it so well starts hard finishes very calm. I was in a class where an instructor was present too and they had a great time! They said they had never sweated so much! It not only felt like a workout but also like a beneficial experience! I ended up going 5 times and on my 5th visit I could actually touch my head on my knee which was shocking but delighting too!. The place is big airy and peaceful definitely worth a visit no matter what level you are!

I am currently on the yoga and surf retreat through Yoga Bliss. It's fantastic! It's so well organised as I am here on my own it had made the whole trip less stressful but also allowed me to do some amazing things. Also, the yoga classes in the amazing setting are fantastic. A perfect way to de-stress. Everyone is really friendly and happy to help out.

If you are looking for a slightly different experience to the regular Bali experience, this is a great option.

I did two classes, and both teachers were particularly grounded, thoughtful, personal, and welcoming. Just what I was looking for on the island. Small and attentive. Thank you!

We went to Hatha yoga class with Gina while we were staying at Nusa Lembongan. There were only four students in the class and we loved it. Gina was lovely and helped us a lot as we aren't so flexible lol. Loved the venue, it was very nice.

I went to have yoga classes at Yoga Bliss a few times, and I spend really good time. The place is really nice and quiet, on the middle of the jungle, there is palm trees all around, birds sings. Kind of oasis full of peace. The two teachers, Gwen and Gina, are really friendly and help me a lot to have good positions and develop my technique as I am beginner. They take time to teach me a lot, and always come to correct me when I needed. After class, I could also hanging around at the vegan café, and have a delicious smoothie bowl, topped with seeds and cashews! I can only recommend this place for relax and chill around!
