About This Retreat
Just Imagine – a 4 day getaway to a breathtaking island, get in shape with some intermediate yoga postures & flows on pristine beach and snorkel in the crystal clear waters right after. Staying at traditional Malaysian home that was moved from its original location in food-Mecca Ipoh.
Well all that and much more is our upcoming yoga retreat in Malaysia.
No matter what level of yoga you are, this is gonna be an unforgettable and a very intimate retreat experience that we reserve only for 6-7 attendees!
There is no better place to dive in deeper into yoga. Come back sun kissed in your beach body, glowing in newfound confidence and swimming with grace, all the while having the time of your life with new friends – be it human, turtles, fish, or sharks!
We’ll stay in a wooden house by the sea; entirely on its own, on a promontory – hidden in amongst the trees. The house was moved the house from where it was originally: near Ipoh, on the West Coast of Malaysia, 250 km away.

Helping People Fly
Instagram celebrity teaching people flexibility and arm balances over many years, Yoshi originally hails from Malaysia. She began practicing yoga in 2014 after recovering from a major car accident which left her semi-paralyzed. After 7 months unable to walk and feel half of her body, against all odds she finally found her miraculous remedy in daily practice of yoga.
In 2014 Yoshi completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh Yogpeeth (India) and became a certified yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. Since then, she dedicated her life in practicing and teaching yoga. She is passionate in creating her own style yoga. She has been teaching for almost 2 years and she focuses on 3 main aspects which are backbend, arm balance and flexibility.
Yoshi shows us that sometimes great things come in tiny packages. You don’t need bulky arm and back muscles to get over your fears and fly, you just need the right mindset, to be able to let go of perfection, and just give life a chance.

A Yogi on a Mission
Cynthia is on a mission to empower people to become who they truly are. She sees yoga, traveling, and yoga adventure retreats as transformative tools to re-connect to ourselves and step into the person we’ve always known we can be. Her passion is creating experimental events and journeys through senses, breath, movement, environment, music while building conscious strong communities.
Cynthia’s received 4 yoga certifications in Bali – 200hr Vinyasa Yoga and 20hr Standup Paddleboard Yoga in 2015, 85hr Pre/Postnatal Vinyasa Yoga in 2017, and 200hr Shamanic Yoga & Restorative Yoga in 2018. She believes nothing compares to being in nature, and over the years has taught one-third, or approximately 100 classes, outdoors across 11 cities and islands.
While born and raised in Chicago and traveling 59 countries across 7 continents, Cynthia (also @cynthiatravels) began crafting yoga retreats in the way she likes to travel – through adventure, community, discovering new limits, and giving back. She’s driven by a desire to discover what magic happens when we live with wild abandon, give without expectation, and love without fear.

A Vegan Chef Spreading Love and Nourishment
An avid yogi and handstander, we’re honored to have vegan chef Duyen of @spiritualotus who will be joining us to prepare healthy, beautiful meals in our home!
Duyen was a huge hit at the last retreat in Bali, keeping our bodies and hearts well nourished, fed, and as best prepared as we could be to take on the retreat to its fullest capacity. She’ll be joining us from Australia (and Bali!) to share her talent to create delicious, healthy vegan concoctions including her most revered smoothie bowls! We’re lucky to have her and enjoy her delicious masterpieces almost too pretty to eat…. almost!
We’re already working on our dream menu for the retreats – do expect 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and a welcome dinner with her! The other dinners will be BBQ dinners at other beaches 🙂

People Say About Us
“I was lucky to join both of Cynthia’s yoga retreats in 2017! The one at Perhentian islands in Malaysia was an incredible first intro to Acroyoga at gorgeous beaches. One of things that makes Cynthia’s retreats special is trying new things – acroyoga, snorkeling with turtles and sharks, climbing a volcano at sunrise on Christmas Day, giving back to the volcano refugee camp, SUP yoga, or serious self reflection, and connecting with new friends. Many of us still get drinks together in Kuala Lumpur!
I practice yoga frequently and I absolutely loved Cynthia’s yoga classes. They’re always dynamic and uplifting, leaving me refreshed, relaxed and very peaceful after. She’s an amazing host, planning plenty of sightseeing and group activities, yet so open to suggestions and adjusting plans or yoga styles based on how we feel and what we need. I recommend her retreats to anyone looking for an exciting holiday, to recharge and chance to make new friends while having so much fun doing so!””Amy Cunningham
Going on one of Cynthia’s retreats was the highlight of 2017 for me and that is saying something with all the places I got to travel to! My biggest concern with retreats has always been, ‘will I get along with the people I will see all day/everyday?!’ This will never be a concern of mine if I continue to book with Cynthia. She attracts the most amazing people to her because of her easy going personality and positive vibes and because of that, her retreats will always be filled with people who are open to trying new things, visiting new places and meeting new people. She is also an amazing yoga instructor who gives clear and easy to follow instructions for beginner yogis but can also challenge the more advanced people. I walked away from the Perhentian Island retreat with a lot of new friends in the world that I still am in contact with 9 months later, feeling refreshed and having seen some of the most gorgeous parts of this planet that I would have never found without her. I can’t wait to see where a future retreat will take me!Brandi Bratek
Thanks to Facebook I accidentally stumbled upon Cynthia Wong being a Yoga instructor in Malaysia. I spend six weeks in Malaysia last year and went to one of her Yoga in the Park classes. It immediately struck me that she is a very special person and when she told me that she will have a Yoga Retreat in the Perhentians later that month I knew my wife and I had to be a part of it. And joining that retreat was one of our best decisions last year.
Not only was Cynthia a fantastic teacher (even for a relative newbie like me) but her personality and care for other people made this one of the best holiday experiences we ever had. The yoga lessons were fantastic and the other activities were just an absolute blast with an incredible group of people who became friends for life. Cynthia did a great job making everybody feel welcome in the group and connecting all personalities. I am excited that Ananda and Cynthia are partnering up to offer Yoga experiences all over the world and hopefully we can soon find one again that we can join. I would give this 10 stars if i could. Thanks again 🙂Wojtek Bratek
I was in Bali last Christmas at the most awesome yoga retreat with the most incredible humans. If you ever get the chance to go on a retreat with this Wonder Woman – Cynthia – jump at the chance.. my life has changed in so many ways since this experience.. 💜Lisa Walker
I took part in Cynthia’s yoga retreat in Bali and I couldn’t have been happier with my experience and the ambience of the retreat. The villa we stayed in was amazing and I felt like being spoilt but also homely from the very beginning. What I really liked beyond this and all the yoga was all the other activities that Cynthia had planned, such as getting purified in holy water at a Water Temple, energy healing and climbing a volcano at 4am for sunrise. There was never a dull moment – and if you felt too tired, taking a nap instead of taking part in anything was always allowed!Bettina Hernberg
Cynthia’s Bali retreat was exactly what the doctor ordered! The villa we were housed in was an oasis set in the paradise that is Bali. Cynthia was generously accommodating in ensuring we had enough time and activities to explore Bali, while still getting our yoga fix in. While scaling volcanos and dipping in hot springs, a sense of genuine community was formed between all the yogis as well. It was wonderful being surrounded by such a diverse but welcoming group of beautiful individuals. This retreat was one that rejuvenated and nourished my body, mind, and spirit – leaving me inspired and excited for all there is to come!Jessica Ong
The retreat was a very intimate and soulful experience, full of activities that engage one soulfully. the necessary conditions were present for one to get in the mood for fun filled self discovery and mindfulness.Sahil Arora
