Forget about the demands of your everyday life and join me on my gorgeous Rawai retreat. Situated directly on the beach RESTORE Rawai is the perfect place for you to find some balance.

I'm hosting my women-only yoga retreat on the 5th of November and it's created specifically for women like you: Loving, far-too-busy women who are always thinking about everyone and everything else before themselves.

My retreat focuses on bringing some balance into your life: Reminding you that YOU deserve and NEED to rest. Don't just think of this as a week of relaxation then back to the grind. I'm going to show you unique yoga practices - on and off the yoga mat - that are going to make improvements in your real life when you go home. You're also going to have a ridiculous amount of fun, find out more about yourself and have adventures every day!

I'm Cheryl Kennedy MacDonald, founder of global women's yoga collective YogaBellies and yoga teacher to several celebrities. I've taught thousands of women yoga over the past 15 years and I can show you what you need to know in a way that's fun, accessible, and memorable!

Is RESTORE Rawai Right For Me?

  • If you're looking for a yoga retreat... but want to make changes that will still benefit you when you return to 'real life.'
  • If you want to hang out with like-minded women that love yoga but aren't 'yoga snobs'...
  • You are a woman of any shape, size, age, ethnicity or level of yoga experience
  • You’re feeling burnt out; exhausted and frankly, you haven't been looking after yourself.
  • You’re looking for a Lil bit of laughter, relaxation, and some balance in your life.
  • You want to dig a little deeper into what yoga can offer you - whether you're brand new to yoga or a seasoned mat treader!
  • You want to experience everything Rawai has to offer and have fun along the way!
  • You want to yoga and spa all day... and enjoy a guilt-free Margherita on the beach at night

About Rawai

Friendship Beach is located in close proximity to many popular activities in Phuket such as kite surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, yachting, wind-surfing, para-sailing and sight seeing. Just a short taxi ride away from world-famous shopping centers and entertainment, we are conveniently located to everything that the island has to offer.

Relax and enjoy the outstanding Thai and Western cuisine or sip on a delicious cocktail while enjoying the ocean views and ever-changing scenes of color and light. Long private walks along four kilometers of the unspoiled beach will allow you to enjoy the extraordinary bird life, local culture and boating activity.

If relaxation is what you desire, then treat yourself to an oil massage next to the beach and listen as the waves make their gentle sound. Onsite we feature the Atmanjai Wellness Center which offers a wide variety of professional massage, health, beauty and spa services.

Check out the Big Buddha, Try Kite-Surfing, Scuba Diving, Elephant Treks, Horseriding, Beach-Clubbing and more!

Yoga By The Ocean

About Cheryl.

"I know what it's like to be running around like a mad woman getting the kids off to school and working my ass off and juggling the 9-zillion other things I do. I also know firsthand the millions of benefits of yoga that women can get that men don't - and how it can change every aspect of your life. Everything I teach I apply to my own life. I believe in Balance: Yin and Yang; Light and Dark; Rock and Recovery.

In my 15 years of teaching yoga, over 100,000 women have attended YogaBellies classes globally. I've personally trained hundreds of YogaBellies teachers; worked with several celebrities; appeared on TV and featured in all of the publications and shows you'll see on this page.

I want you to STOP trying to twist yourself into knots (literally.) A balanced life comes from finding what YOU need from life.. and making time for that.

Let me show you how to feel great about yourself, have tons of energy and a body you love ... based on working with thousands of women over the past 15 years.

"I'm inviting you to unplug from the everyday stress and find your way back to the real you. It's so easy to get caught up in work or looking after other people, it's easy to neglect yourself. Then you go on a yoga retreat to escape... and go home and take up all of your bad habits again. That's not what I want for you!

Take this retreat as the opportunity to really dive into what yoga can offer. This is a chance to make real, sustainable changes to your life - ongoing. I'm also going to make sure you learn TONS about yoga, have a ridiculous amount of fun, enjoy blissful spa time and have mini adventures every day.

I'll teach you yoga and wellness practices that will keep improving your life. I'll show you how to take that energy off the yoga mat and channel it into living your best life. Then after 'work', we’ll hit the beach for some well-deserved Margheritas - or sparkling water!

At my women-only retreat, you're going to enjoy luxurious accommodation, all-organic food and drinks, spa treatments, exclusive RESTORE and yoga sessions with me - and a whole lot more. "

What Happens On Retreat?

The main thing to know about my retreats is that you can make them your own. Everything you need for some serious relaxation and personal transformation is there for you, but I absolutely encourage you to find out what YOU need - and then heap on more of that.

You can love yoga, and meditation and experience inner calm... and also have great fun and lots of laughter.

I also don't believe that starving yourself for a week, putting yourself through a punishing workout, or resisting everything you love to eat or drink - for a week - is going to do you any long-term good.

I believe that learning and enjoying real yoga life skills that you can take home is much more important. I'm talking about a 5-minute mindfulness practice you can use before you freak out at your little people when they refuse to go to bed. 2-minute breathing practice to calm you down before your big presentation. A 10-minute yoga practice to wake you up in the morning and double your energy levels for the jam-packed day ahead.

You’re also going to enjoy ocean-front accommodation on beautiful white sands, all-organic food and drinks, gorgeous spa treatments, exclusive yoga sessions with me and access to the fitness suite, water sports and pool.
