About this trip

Ever dream of spending an entire week sailing on a beautiful yacht amidst post-card-perfect natural seascapes? Imagine doing that plus all the while developing your yoga practice with other passionate yogis,  and hiking amazing raw jungles of remote uninhabited islands? Together we'll explore new beaches each and every day. We'll snorkel. We'll laugh. We'll eat delicious, soul nourishing food and simply enjoy each other's presence!


Our captain, Rob Lyon, has been sailing paradise trips around the world for almost a decade along with his beautiful wife and sailing mate, Desiree Lyon. Cole Chance and Echo Gisele will be your seaside yoga teachers and deckhands!


We'll be setting sail in the beautiful clear waters of the Andaman sea cutting through the waters and seeking out secret beaches for us to practice yoga.


Sailing the sea combined with yoga and meditation is the perfect invitation to awaken that ocean inside of you and make you feel more alive than ever!  Whether you are called to travel by wind and experience travel from a new perspective, or you simply want to learn something new and dive into some self study and movement with us in South East Asia. 


This is your chance to have the experience of a lifetime.  We will only take on six adventurers with us, so this will afford you super exclusive access and insight into all the ins and outs of living aboard a sailing yacht, as well as facilitate a deeper exploration of your yoga practice! 


We will become a close family and crew by the end of the week! You'll have new friends for life, bonded by this beautiful, magical experience.    We invite seekers, adventurers, yogis, and travelers from around the globe. All are welcome.

Thank you so much to Cole and Echo for your warmth and love and for everything you did for us. The trip was a lot of fun: the yoga classes were great, I loved Echo's games, the workshops were excellent. The food was amazing, and the accommodations were fabulous, the hosts at Om Waters and at Mala Dhara were so gracious, and everyone on the trip were amazing people and it didn't take long to feel like one big family!

This trip was amazing! I have already been to Guatemala so I was familiar with the surroundings but this was my first time out of the country alone and on a retreat. I was a bit apprehensive at first but quickly felt so at ease when meeting Cole and Jen. They were great at organizing events, being personable with their members, and always offering guidance. I felt so comfortable with them and their presence filled me with confidence in my practice. I loved the group, the atmosphere, all of the various workshops and ways for us to connect. We were all able to connect authentically and I have to thank Cole and Jen for setting up the vibe that we were safe and we can be our true selves with each other. I loved them so much.

I had an amzing time during this wonderful retreat. Thank you so much to both Jen and Cole !!! This was an incredible experience that went so much further than my expectations of what a Bali retreat doing Thai massage and yoga had entailed. The retreat location, in a Balinese cloud forest, was gorgeous. Being surrounded by natural beauty was a great way to approach connection and intimacy, becoming better connected with each other and nature. The workshops on Thai massage and acro-yoga were great introductions into practices I want to learn and play with more in the future. The regular morning yoga practices were definitely a lovely way to wake up and start the day. I loved coming down to breakfast waiting for us all in the common dining area. Group meals together were definitely a highlight of the experience. I think food carries such deep cultural tradition of togetherness and connection, sharing and conversing and nuturing each other. I enjoyed the outings, especially the walks through the jungle and learning about wild edibles from the local guides. There were only two things I wanted more of: 1) More free time to just sit and visit with each other, without having the exhaustion of such full days. 2) A longer workshop or retreat in general. Ideally I want it to last a lifetime, but I think at least 2 weeks would be better to more fully integrate the practices and connect with each other. I am really happy that there are so many of this group that all live in Austin and I look forward to reconnecting back home and cooking delicious Balinese food together or practicing yoga and acro and Thai massage with each other. This was more than a workshop. I fully intend to take the genuinity of connection and openness and vunerability with me in life to share and spread more love and connection to as many people as are willing. I think everyone needs to experience this in thier lives. Thank you again.

This retreat was the most amazing experience. It was an incredible combination of activities, wonderful food, fantastic accommodations, and Cole Chance and Jen Hilman were supremely organized and led incredible workshops. Changed my life and view on travel.
Had a great time. Well organized retreat. We stayed at the wonderful Bali Mountain Retreat💕 where they served good food with love and helped us with whatever we needed. Nice rice field trekking, temple trek and much more.... I so thankful for this great experience!
