Not Your Average Retreat
If you're picturing a week of empty promises and 'yoga talk' that doesn't translate to real life, you're in the wrong place. RESTORE Rawai is for those of you who want a blend of soul-soothing and skill-building—you'll leave with a new outlook and zest for life.
Who You'll Meet (Aside from Me!)
Come as you are—whether you're yoga-savvy or a ‘downward-what-now?’ kinda lady. At RESTORE Rawai, we're all about the vibe, not the CV. This is your tribe, a group of incredible women who love a good yoga flow but could be tempted with a chilled glass of wine by the sea in the evening.
Stressed, Depressed, but Well-Dressed?
If you're on the brink of burnout, or just teetering on the edge of 'I can't even,' this is the sign you've been waiting for. Come to RESTORE Rawai to alleviate the stress, put the phone on silent and reacquaint yourself with the word 'relax'.
But What Will We Actually Do?
Aside from turning you into a yoga queen, there's the backdrop of stunning Rawai itself. Think meditations, oracle reading, reflection, sea, spa, and yes, if you fancy it, a sneaky Margherita if you wish—guilt-free, I promise.
So, if you’re ready for a truly transformative experience that feels just like a week with the ladies, then, RESTORE Rawai is for you. Come for the yoga, stay for the transformation.

Hey there, Lovely Ladies! I'm Cheryl, and trust me when I say, I get it. The never-ending to-do lists, the work-life 'balance' (if we can even call it that), and the daily hustle that has you feeling more drained than a decade-old battery. Yep, I've been there.
I've spent more than 20 years teaching yoga and empowering women through YogaBellies. We're talking over 100,000 women across the globe—mums, career women, and fabulous females from all walks of life. I've been featured on TV and in all those shiny publications you might've seen, but let's keep it real; I'm not just some "wellness guru." I'm a woman who's lived through the chaos and found solace—and incredible energy—in the practice of yoga.
You see, yoga offers us women something extra special, something that goes way beyond a sweaty gym session. It's a soul-soothing, life-changing practice that touches every aspect of our lives—from the way we handle stress to how we feel in our own skin. Yep, I practice what I preach, and what I preach is balance. Think Yin and Yang; Netflix and Nirvana; dance beats and tranquil breaths.
I'm on a mission to stop you from bending over backward—literally and metaphorically—to meet everyone's expectations but your own. Forget trying to tie yourself into impossible knots; life's too short for that. Instead, let's focus on what you really need. Whether that's rekindling your inner spark, finding a sense of peace, or even just learning how to breathe deeply again.
I've spent years exploring how to help women like you live a life full of passion, laughter, and oh-so-much energy. Ready to feel fantastic in your own skin and unleash that inner goddess?
