Salaya is the perfect location for experienced yogis or beginners. You can work individually with our experienced Instructor, take a group class, or enjoy a quiet practice whenever you like.
Our yoga is aligned with the Hatha style, but we are not fixed to just one style - our practice is tailored to the needs of each guest to ensure you have the best experience.

About our Yogini
Charisse Go Ompod has cultivated her solid personal practice of yoga for 7 years before becoming an instructor in 2013. In her life, she finds most of her inspiration in the curiosity and impulsiveness of a new experience.
Charisse has two passions: Yoga and nursing. Bringing together these passions, she is able to incorporate both into each other’s study and practice. With the knowledge of the human body, as well as yoga anatomy, Charisse is able to break down each pose and connect with people to aspire for a higher level of wellness. Her bright and spontaneous nature is how she brings the spirit of fun and adventure to each and every class.
Yoga and Diving
Beginners and experienced divers alike can benefit from the breathing techniques and poses practiced in Yoga. Diving and yoga hold synergies as they both encourage the practice of a fuller and more complete life by venturing out into another existence.
Learn to control your breathing underwater and dive to greater depths as you improve your overall physical and emotional well being. The physical yoga postures relieve tensions in your body from carrying tanks and weight belts. When your body is more relaxed and your breathing balanced, your dives become more enjoyable and you'll have an even more positive dive experience.
Bring your yoga group to Salaya for an amazing week of yoga practice, organic cuisine (including options for raw, vegan and paleo diets) and meditation, combined with snorkeling at the world-famous Apo Island reef and tours to soak up the local culture.
Of course there’s pampering to be had during your Yoga Retreat at Salaya – lounging by the pool, perhaps a massage (or several!), a foot spa or a mani-pedi.
Contact us today about hosting and designing your retreat, or joining one of our scheduled retreats that will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and revitalised.
The Yoga Studio is located on the second level of the restaurant building, and was built specifically for yoga. You’ll enjoy a spectacular space that overlooks tropical gardens with glimpses of the ocean, lots of natural light, and lovely acoustics. We supply high quality mats, blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets, so you just need to be present
You can also opt to have your Yoga session on the beachfront lawn with the relaxing sound of the ocean waves in the background.
