Use of Your Time In The Most Efficient Way
Don't lose any time sorting out your travel arrangements, we've got it all covered!
Outbound - The 3.5-hour jet foil will 'teleport' you to the island within a blink of eye. Midday on Saturday, you'll find yourself smelling the fresh ocean air and getting ready for a full day of yoga and exploration.
Inbound - We'll send you back to Tokyo by 5pm on Monday afternoon.
Deep Yoga Practice For Everyone
Twice a day - Wake up yoga, sleep yoga. The morning is the perfect time for a energising Vinyasa flow, and we'll finish the day with a gentle Yin practice to stretch & release. Get the support from two fun multi-lingual teachers to help you deepen your practice.
Yoga for everyone - Even for your little ones! Two yoga play sessions are awaiting them. If your partner does not want to do yoga, we will be happy to offer a price reduction.

Beth is a Yoga Alliance 200-hour yoga instructor from the UK who's been teaching for five years in Tokyo, in English, French and Japanese. She's practiced yoga seriously for about 17 years.
She's committed to yoga because of the way it melds the physical practice together with breathwork and meditation. No matter how hard she works, she knows she will always finish the yoga practice feeling calm and energized.
With 25 years of experience of working as international journalist, she finds that yoga helps her to deal with stressful situations, and has improved her outlook on life at difficult times. She strongly believes that yoga is for everyone. Find Beth on her Instagram @yogaraku.
After 10 years working in Finance & Investments, BT decided to take a leap of faith, became a yoga teacher and launched herself into the adventures of making a meaningful impact on other people's life.
The seeds of those adventures started in 2012 when she stepped on a yoga mat for the first time, discovering all the strange things it does to her body and my mind. She has travelled a long journey since then, both externally and internally within herself. She has a lot of people to thank for this journey, every minute of which was meant to happen to bring her to exactly where she is supposed to be. Along this journey, yoga has changed her life in so many incredible ways, so she made it her mission to help other people experience those changes too.
BT has a dream to make yoga accessible and meaningful to everyone, on and off the mat. Connect with BT through her Instagram @beeteeyogee_.
