This yoga retreat takes place in Nusa Lembongan, Bali, Indonesia. Yoga Bliss is located on Lembongan Island, 30 minutes away from Bali. As a lot of travelers say, Lembongan is like Bali used to be 20 years ago. There is white sandy beach, blue clear water, quiet, and a perfect spiritual place. This island paradise begins to be a must to visit from Bali away from the traffic jam or the hawkers.

This is a perfect place to relax, where the only things to do are diving, snorkeling, surfing, hiking, sunbathing, and yoga. The shala is in the heart of Lembongan, close to all commodities. The beach is only five minutes away, but as you will see, everything is really close on the island as its size is approximately eight square kilometers.

Your yoga retreat will be oriented to deepen your own practice while discussing the yoga principles.

Anatomy and physiology

You will discuss how the bones, muscles, joints, and all of the systems of the body interact in various yoga poses, and how they are physically and energetically beneficial to you.


The morning practice will always be an Ashtanga (Mysore led class) or Vinyasa class, focusing on building strength and flexibility, while the afternoon will be a Yin or Restorative practice to restore physical balance and calm the mind.

Asana and teaching lab

Learning to align yourself correctly in poses keeps you safe from injury and stable, while experiencing the benefits. You will be informed on how to correctly align yourself in postures.


Ayurveda, also known as the sister science of yoga, will be introduced as a complimentary technique. It has a lot to do with balancing your own individual constitutions with the use of herbs, better dietary choices, and even your asana, pranayama, and meditation practices to create better overall health, radiance, and peacefulness.


You will be taught the Ashtanga invocation, as well as other mantras to use as a vehicle for meditation and to bring focus to the mind.


You will be introduced meditation techniques from the Hatha yoga and Tantric traditions, as well as Vipassana meditation from the Buddhist tradition.

Philosophy, texts, and concepts

You will touch on the connections between Eastern philosophy, Hindu mythology, and yoga. You will be reading from Yoga Mala and The Heart of Yoga as supplemental texts to your practice. These texts will be the basis of most of your discussions that relate to all of the aspects of the retreat as a whole.


You will be taught different techniques to control the prana that rides on the breath. Different pranayama creates different effects on the body, mind, and energy system. Some more activating and some more calming. You will be using pranayama in conjunction with the flow of poses, in addition to using it as a lead-in to meditation.

    "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 had a great time at the surf and yoga retreat organized by Yoga Bliss.The studio is peaceful and beautiful, surrounded by trees and palms.The classes are very high quality, even if the schedule changes every week so you don't really know what you will get during your retreat.Both Gwen and Gina are amazing teachers, very gifted indeed!I had a great time, and I'd suggest the retreat with them to anyone's looking for a week on a small island focusing on well-being.", edited

    "Yogabliss, it's pretty simple, do yourself a favour and BOOK WITH THEM! Gwen and Gina make the experience like a trip with friends. I travel a lone a lot and although I am a complete beginner, really wanted to go on a yoga retreat. Gwen is the organising force behind Yogabliss and with her wealth of knowledge and local connections, you will have the best options with the best providers on the island of Nusa Lemnbongan. I opted to do the yoga and surf retreat as I am also a beginner at surfing, I met with Gwen on arrival (after a delay which they also helped me manage) and went through what activities I wanted to do on which days, treatments at Kemilau Spa, surfing with the Newbro surf school (absolute legends) and of course, as much yoga as you can shake your drink bottle at with Gwen and Gina."

    "The shala that they hold their lessons in is so perfect for me it was one of the best parts of the trip. The Green Cafe offered up easily the best breakfasts on the island, their Sunrise bowl being my absolute favourite, couple with the beautiful yoga space, this place is relaxing and peaceful. Surrounded by bush, birds and various animals, while attending a Yin yoga session one morning it poured with rain on and off, after the rain stopped all of the birds started singing, I was lying there thinking this is it, this is absolute bliss, therefore Yogabliss is aptly named."

    "Trying different styles of yoga was a little intimidating for me as a lot of people attending were devoted yoga goers, however, Gwen and Gina always gave me options and helped me with poses, I loved every minute of it. The meditation session with Gina followed by a Yin class is easily one of my favourite memories of this trip."

    "I was lucky enough to be placed at Hokita homestay with the lovely Niko Wayan. Having grown up on Lembongan, he has a fantastic network of friends and had endless suggestions on activities, places to eat, things to see and do. I loved every minute of my time staying on the island with Yogabliss and cannot wait to organise a trip back."

    "The people I met, the places I ate, the little missions on the motorbike, the luxurious treatments I had at Kemilau, this is the ultimate in relaxation in it's most basic form. I loved the freedom of not having a schedule but being able to book whatever whenever. I do not enjoy regimented/planned travel and trips therefore Yogabliss was the perfect option for me. Beautiful people, beautiful surroundings, so much happiness in one place."

    "Thanks you so much to everyone involved.", edited

    "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."

    "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!"

    "I attended a few classes whilst on a short trip to Nusa Lembongan with my mum. I found the classes an excellent way to wind down and practice yoga. The setting is beautiful with the sounds of birds, roosters, and monks singing in a nearby temple helping to set the scene wonderfully. Definitely recommended!"

    "We attended the second class ever from Yoga Bliss and Gwen, the instructor, was fantastic. She really made us feel welcome and comfortable. Having practiced other styles of yoga but never Ashtanga (the class we attended), Gwen was able to provide various options and cues for poses we could not do with or were unsure about. Highly recommended with an enjoyable and easy going atmosphere."
