  • The brand new ‘Wild & Free’ yoga retreat is taking place at Nihiwatu on Indonesia’s Sumba Island between 7th to 12th October 2017. During this retreat, guests will learn expert-led yoga and specialist movement techniques from Australian wellness gurus Sjana Earp and Rod Cooper. Sjana is at the forefront of the wellness movement, a young yogi, traveler and photojournalist who is passionate about body confidence and empowerment for young women. Rod is the owner of The Movement Collective in Australia, which focuses on the unique combination of animal flow, acrobatics, gymnastics and calisthenics. Classes will be led by Sjana and Rod, taking place in truly incredible locations – on the breathtaking yoga pavilion (offering panoramic views on an open-aired platform overlooking 2.5km of privately owned beach), under a 100-foot waterfall and on a private island surrounded by rice paddy fields.

    An intimate retreat, guests will be treated to personalised instruction and daily group classes, combining hatha, vinyasa, restorative yoga, breathing techniques and meditation. Highlights of the retreat include daily yoga classes on the yoga pavilion, meditation, daily movement practice, inversions and hand balancing, as well as inspiring positive change talks.

    The wellness experience doesn’t stop at the end of class however, with the opportunity for guests to trek tropical jungles, learn from an ancient tribal culture and visit incredibly remote, pristine beaches. Key highlights include guided visits to the Blue Waterfall, offering a trek through the pristine Indonesia National Park forest to the blue lagoon at the base of the waterfall where they will enjoy a picnic. They will also have a chance to trek Nihioka Valley, a hidden paradise which will take them through cascading rice paddy fields and offer panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Guests can then choose to stay at the secluded resort, or opt for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Nihiwatu’s Honeymoon Villa, a secluded one-bedroom villa in the Nihioka Valley for the ultimate solitude and digital detox.
