Did you know there's a beautiful island resort with a long golden beach and gorgeous wooden chalets built over the sea just 50 km from Singapore?

Would you love to relax on this beach gently swinging in a shaded hammock as you read that book you've been dying to get to for months? 

Would you like to upgrade your Yoga and meditation practice?

Get a blissful massage to the sound of the sea knowing that your next delicious buffet meal is being lovingly prepared for you.

Chat with new friends or an old buddy you come along with. Or just gaze out to sea letting your eyes rest on the horizon.

There's nothing like doing Yoga as the sun rises and then sets over the ocean.
Imagine listening to the sea gently lapping under the wooden jetty as you're guided through the best Savasana of your life.

This is a Yoga holiday where as soon as you step off the boat you'll disconnect from the stress of everyday life.  You'll have all the time you need to unplug and recharge. You’ll love that there’s no wifi and no roads or cars on the entire island.

Complete beginners and more advance Yoginis and Yogis as well as all levels of flexibility and strength are welcome and will be well taken care of.


Thanks for a lovely few nights away, spent with enjoyable company and fantastic yoga. Very easy getaway from Singapore and highly recommended for those needing a recharge!

I thoroughly enjoyed Sarah’s yoga holiday. It was just the right balance of amazing, personalised yoga classes and a fun, relaxing holiday. I felt that I got stronger in my yoga, relaxed and made some wonderful, new friends.
I thought the lack of air-con would bother me but it wasn’t an issue. The chalets are really nice and comfortable. The beach is stunning and there’s lots to do at the resort. Sarah was so good at getting the fun going as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to join the next one. I was sad to have to leave!
— Evelyn Bookless, children's author and September '18 retreat participant

The great thing about this Yoga holiday is that there isn't just amazing Yoga on offer twice a day.

If you would like to spend some time doing some more active pursuits the resort offers plenty of beach and ball games, line fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boards, jetty jumping and even a ceramics workshop.

Or you can just relax after your massage and lie on the beach!

Thanks for showering us with much warmth, knowledge and wisdom throughout the yoga retreat! Being a first timer to a yoga retreat, these 4 days away were a step out of my comfort zone which proved to be extremely fulfilling. It was an opportunity to pause, disconnect and come back stronger and richer, along with a lovely bag of memories and newly formed friendships. Highly recommended for those who are yearning for a well-balanced treat of laughter, nature and yoga.
— Si Ying Ong on our February '19 retreat

If you have the energy you can star gaze at the nightly beach bonfire toasting marshmallows as the waves lap the beach with their gentle reassuring rhythm.

There are no cars on Sugi island so the air is clean and fresh and noise comes only from the sound of the waves, the wind in the trees, the odd jumping fish, birdsong and a wooden gong to announce the next meal.
 

I had a wonderful time at Sarah’s retreat at Telunas. Sarah created such a warm, supportive and fun atmosphere, and her yoga classes were thoughtful and inspiring. The resort was beautiful and perfect for a break away from everything.
— Emma Kirby, Yogini at our May 2018 retreat

The Place

I have been to the Telunas Beach resort in Indonesia with my family and have lead many retreats here too. Each time I step off the boat onto the wooden jetty I see big smiles widen on all those who have traveled together and the collective sighs of wonder.

The simple natural surroundings, genuinely happy and friendly staff, the sea, trees, birdsong, big wide sky and beautiful beach all combine in contrast to the rushed concrete city lives we live.

This is an Eco friendly, simple, back to nature resort built with natural materials and love.

I've always felt very at home here and felt that the natural rhythms of nature come back to me so easily on this magical island.

The rhythm of the tides, the huge night skies full of stars and being outside all day in sea air sets the stage beautifully to truly unplugging from the stress of city life.
 



Accommodation is bright, clean, traditional Indonesian 36 m2 chalets all built from the jetty over the sea.

All chalets are generous, bright and breezy, have a queen size double bed and a private nook with generous bunk beds . 
The sound of waves will lull you to sleep and there's no need for air conditioning as the sea breeze keeps the temperature very comfortable.

There's also a generous balcony with a fantastic hammock and an ensuite modern bathroom with shower. Fluffy towels, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel are also provided.

Rooms are equipped with ceiling, standing fans and extra blankets.
All chalets comfortably fit 4 but I've limited us to  2 people to a chalet so you have more space to move around and feel more at ease.

I’ve reserved 3 deluxe villas for people who'd prefer a room to themselves.  Especially great for those whose priority is to really catch up on some sleep.

Everyone is invited to join (Yoginis and Yogis alike) and if you're traveling solo I'll match you up with someone to share with.
 


All meals are buffet style and are a lovingly prepared blend of local and international dishes. 
There is lots of fresh fruit, veggies with a good balance of deserts and treats. The kitchen is used to adapting and adding dishes for vegetarians, vegans and people with allergies.
 


About Sarah

I'm an experienced, fully trained Yoga teacher E-RYT500 and have been teaching Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga full time since 2007.

I began Yoga as a teenager and have been in love with it's art and science ever since. 
I draw on my personal experience and training to teach you how to do Yoga poses with good safe alignment that suits your unique body.

I want to teach you some of the methods I have found useful in becoming more resilient in negotiating life’s challenges and how Yoga and mindful living can bring more serenity into your life.
 


The Yoga

In this retreat our twice daily Yoga classes will be a healthy mix of focus and hard work to warmth, lightness and humour.

Every morning you'll be lead through either a slow alignment based flow sequence or a Hatha class. And in the afternoon a slower, more relaxed Hatha or Yin Yoga class.

I’ll also lead you through meditations, visualisations and practical mindful techniques.

You'll receive 6 two hour Yoga classes from Friday afternoon to Monday morning and will clearly feel your understanding of Yoga, meditation and your pose practice jump up to the next level.

We'll also incorporate some fun and self-empowering philosophical teachings on the chakras and inspired learning from a hindu goddess or two in these longer than usual classes.

Thank you once again for a wonderful week of yoga, relaxation, healthy eating and above all great company !  I had an amazing time and felt honoured to be part of your retreat kula.  You’re an inspirational teacher Sarah - thank you for opening your heart, sharing your strength, wit and wisdom... I can’t wait for your next retreat !! 💓
— Carolyn Sivaram. Pre-natal Yoga teacher.
We went back to nature with no wifi, no TV, lots of Yoga, poetry, great company, new friends, roasting marshmallows on the bonfire, learning to do pottery, falling absolutely asleep on the beach, journaling, rope course crossing and a spot of impromptu singing. It all made a very fun but also recharging and restoring few days. My mind is clearer and feeling much calmer and ready to explore my creativity again which I had put on hold for a while. Thank you Sarah for such beautiful days
— Cat Borgsrom

The Logistics

Accommodation, all meals, six Yoga workshops, beach games and activities and the boat transfer from Batam to Telunas and back are all included in the price.

There's only a weak and very unreliable wifi connection (which to me is a big bonus!) so you'll need to catch up with emails before coming.

The ferries from Singapore to Sekupang terminal, Batam and return need to be booked and paid for by you with the ferry company. It's very quick and easy to do online. 

You will need to book the 11.10 am ferry from Singapore to Sekupang to leave on the 30th May.
The return ferry, from Sekupang, Batam back to Singapore on the 2nd June at 12.30 must be booked too!
The return ticket from Singapore Harbour Front to Sekupang (Batam) is around SG$50.

Sarah’s retreat really opened my mind (and heart!) to a new way of being. She offered several practical ways I could enrich my busy and often overwhelming lifestyle by taking time for myself, in small, manageable ways.  I’m now determined to put these changes into practice.  I hadn’t realised how much I was neglecting my own self-care.  I feel rejuvenated, energised and inspired by her warmth and gentle guidance.  She is also very down-to-earth and explained everything really well. Thank you!!
— Beth Cone, Yoga student

I feel very fortunate to have found Sarah as part of my Yoga journey and can’t recommend the experience of her teaching enough for anyone, especially people new to Yoga who like me are trying to seek out the most authentic, skilled and generous teachers to learn from.
— Carl Jackson, VP Linde Group Taiwan

I am so lucky to have started my yoga journey with Sarah. Yoga with Sarah is more than just mastering complex yoga poses. It is about the journey of inner self development and alignment, to learn to listen to your body and to protect yourself in every pose. To me every class is a lesson that is applicable to my daily life.
