What Happens On Retreat?

Imagine this... You wake up to the sound of waves crashing and the sun rising over the crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea. You step out of your beachfront bungalow and take a deep breath of the salty ocean air. You start the day with REVIVE Sunrise Yoga and Oracle Readings with Cheryl and the girls on the beach, then enjoy a delicious beach-front breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the turquoise waters and feeling the warm sun on your skin.

It's YOUR Call...

After breakfast, the day is yours! You can join an additional complimentary yoga class, hosted by the resort, take a refreshing dip in the sea or simply relax with a book in the sunshine. This is your chance to explore the Thai markets, the islands, or the temples - Rawai has so much to offer! Perhaps a boat trip or kite surfing or a trip to the gym or spa. There will always be someone to hang out with (we're a sociable bunch!) or you can get some solo 'me' time, it's completely your call. This time is all about what YOU need.

Sunset Vibes

As the sun sets, you'll be treated to an awe-inspiring display of colours across the sky, as you join the evening RESTORE Sunset Yoga and Reflections session, followed by a gratitude meditation with journalling and reflecting on our day. The evening is then yours, to dine at the retreat or enjoy some of the local delicacies in a Thai restaurant or even a beach club (and maybe a cheeky cocktail!)

This is just a tiny glimpse of what awaits you at the YogaBellies Rawai Retreat in Thailand. With daily yoga and reflection sessions, optional watersports, cultural excursions, and spa treatments, you'll leave feeling reinvigorated and ready to take on the world.

Are you ready to escape to a world of tranquility and relaxation?

Led by celebrity yoga teacher Cheryl MacDonald, the founder of YogaBellies, our Rawai Retreat is the perfect opportunity for loving, busy women like you to take a much-needed break and focus on yourself.
But it's not just about relaxation and fun; Cheryl will also guide you through unique yoga practices that you can incorporate into your daily life long after the retreat ends. You'll have a great time, learn new things about yourself, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

So, what are you waiting for? Join us in Rawai, Thailand, and discover the best version of yourself. Book your spot now before early bird pricing ends!

Who You'll Meet (Aside from the Fabulous Me, Obviously)
Come as you are—whether you're yoga-savvy or a ‘downward-what-now?’ kinda gal. 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 wouldn’t turn down a glass of bubbly. 🍾

Why Rawai?

An Adventure Buffet Right on Your Doorstep
Whether you're a water baby craving some kite surfing, or you're dying to scuba with Nemo, Rawai has it. Take a shortboat trip to the island from The Beach movie (I wonder if Leo's still there!?) THIS is the time in life to do everything you ever wanted! Seriously, this place has everything you want from a retreat—versatile and varied.

Food & Mood: Sorted!
Love food? The local cuisine is a taste bud party—both Thai and Western cuisines that are delicious and tummy-friendly. Oh, and mocktails (or cocktails?) With views that would make a sunset jealous?

Ahhh, the Bliss of Doing Nothing
Ever fantasise about long beach walks without a care in the world? Rawai’s sprawling, unspoiled beach is basically your dream journal come to life. Revel in the stillness, soak in the local culture, and make friends with nature.

What About My "Me Time," Cheryl?
Ah, the pièce de résistance! We've got a Wellness Centre, right on site. Think of it as your self-care playground—massages by the beach, a range of spa treatments, and yes, the sound of waves playing your favourite lullaby.

And if You Fancy a Bit of Wild...
From marvelling at the Big Buddha to Elephant Treks and even beach clubbing—there’s a splash of 'extra' for everyone.

So, Rawai? It's not just a location; it’s a vibe, an experience, a 'heck yes!' to living your best life. See you on the beach! 🏖️✨

Phuket's Only Beachfront Yoga Centre

Who says healing has to happen in a counsellors office? Life's too short for that nonsense. At our retreat resort, they've cracked the code on feeling awesome—mind, body, and soul! Based on the legit wisdom of Dr. Bernard Jensen, the retreat resort is not just about striking a pose; it's about striking a balance. Think of it as a detox for your entire being, but with a view that makes your heart sing.

They keep it simple, yet oh-so-effective. We're talking lifestyle changes that make a difference. Because, love, you deserve to be the best version of you, inside and out.

There you have it! If you're craving a sanctuary that's got the 'whole you' in mind, THIS is your next go-to paradise. 🌴✨

Resort Facilities and Activities

Let's talk Resort Facilities and Activities, shall we? Because let’s be honest, your time here needs to be more than just yoga poses and spa days—though let’s not knock those, either! 🌴💆‍♀️

What's The Buzz? So, you’ve nailed your sunset practice, had your delicious, guilt-free smoothie, and now you're wondering, what next? Worry not. Our mantra is: “Boredom is for basics," and you, my love, are anything but basic.

Beachfront Pool With A View Ah, the pool. Because sometimes you want to feel like Ariel from The Little Mermaid without actually getting salty. Lounge by our beachfront pool, drink in hand, and just be present with the phenomenal view over Chalong Bay.

Get Pumped at the Fitness Centre Missing that gym vibe but hate the intimidation? Our fitness centre is fully equipped and seriously unscary. There are also professional fitness instructors who are keen to help, but won’t make you feel like you’re in a military boot camp. Refreshing, right?

Watersports and Adventures, Oh My! Craving a bit of an adrenaline hit? You know, the kind that doesn't involve a school run or another bloody Zoom call? Paddleboarding, kitesurfing, diving—choose your thrill. Plus, we've got tours to explore Phuket's local gems, because you're not just any tourist, you're an adventurer!

The Loving Spirit Spa: Where Love Actually Happens Tired? Stressed? Forgotten what ‘me-time’ even means? Our spa treatments aren’t just for pampering (though there's plenty of that); they're about helping you feel loved, happy, and fabulously relaxed. Think of it as a hug for your soul, without any awkward side-hugs or patting.

Remember, lovelies, at our retreat it's all about balance—finding the perfect mix of zen and zest, all while living your absolute best life. Come and find your happy place. It's waiting for you! 🌺✨

Yoga By The Ocean

About Cheryl.

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?

Catch you on the mat! 🌈🎉

Laugh, Relax and Restore!
