Founded in April 2016, Yoga Bliss had the idea of bringing Yoga to everyone. It is an international recognised Yoga Retreat Centre that organises groups and individual retreats, teacher training programs and workshops.
Yoga Bliss was born from the collaboration of international yoga teachers and locals who wished to create a space where people could develop their yoga practice, their spirituality and reconnect with themselves. Gwendoline Ferreira, Manager, Yoga Teacher and Sound Healing Therapist, seems always available to share her wide knowledge and help students to find their own path.
Yoga Bliss Lembongan offers daily drop-in classes, workshops and teacher trainings, all year around. 6% of its income from Teacher Trainings Courses and Yoga Retreats are invested into various projects supporting the local community and protecting the natural environment of Nusa Lembongan.
The Yoga Shack can be found inside the beautiful Secret Garden Bungalows on Nusa Lembongan. Its octagonal design - the symbol of Mother Earth - harnesses the natural flow of energy within, creating an inspiring place filled with spiritual balance and creative vibrations. Come and join for one of the daily classes, or take part in a retreat or workshop. All levels welcome, they operate on a drop in basis, so just arrive 10 minutes before the class begins.

In line with their eco-ethos, the rooms showcase upcycled furniture, and the refillable water bottles are made from reclaimed glass.
Creating vibrant dishes with hearty flavors and home cooked vibes the daytime menu features an eclectic mix of international favorites; from lunchtime until 11pm you can savor famous Indian food with a well-cooked curry and hand-crafted Naan from the Tandoor oven. All of this can be enjoyed in the environment of a sheesha lounge - the first of its kind on Gili Trawangan. The assortment of colourful cushions, both poolside and on the beach, are an invitation to slow down, enjoy the view, and each other’s company.
