HEAVEN SHALA

Our yoga shala might be the best you will ever see, with panoramic views and the breeze with our open plan. The impressive shala has all wood flooring, with an adjacent relaxation area and brilliant star stone walls. With 216 m2, the design easily accommodates 30-35 mats. The dedicated kitchen facility serves soothing herbal teas. The flat roof of the yoga centre has a landscaped area for chill out and contemplation in the evenings or at night. Or treat yourself to one of the treatments in the Spa area right next door. Daily classes are available.

Our Gurus

All classes are led by our very special teachers Kerli Granholm and Saad. Kerli is resident at Planet from May to November. Kerli is a highly experienced and fully qualified yoga and aerobics instructor from Finland. Saad was trained in Lombok. They both bring great energy, positivity and passion to all the classes. Kerli has 20 years of aerobics teaching experience, so be creative about the type of workout you want. She can design a bespoke programme for the duration of your stay, allowing you to target specific body parts experiencing injuries or discomfort in the past. Shape your class around surfing or other sports.

RETREATS

Be in your own Yoga Heaven to enjoy a truly unique experience practising and improving your yoga in our beautiful surroundings. The retreats are for those wanting yoga to be the central theme of their holiday. Retreats last 5-7 days and start on the 2nd Sunday or every month. You can stroll to our beach, while receiving all the bonus benefits of our Platinum Guests at Planet. Both the “Yoga” and combined “Surf School and Yoga” packages are favourites. It’s up to you, so please ask for any assistance with bookings.

Your Gurus

Yoga schools often travel internationally to a retreat. You are very welcome at Heaven on the Planet with personal yoga students. Our teachers or yours can provide the classes. The focus will be on Yoga while enjoying the myriad benefits and beauty of a stay at Heaven on the Planet. Planet offers special “Many Lovers” discounts for big groups and yoga guests. Please see our Platinum Package page for further information about prices and inclusions.

Our Signature

“Understanding without practice is better than practice without understanding. Understanding with practice is better than understanding without practice. Residing in your true nature is better than understanding or practice”, Upanishads

RETREAT PACKAGES

All of our guests enjoy the Full Platinum Package which gives you a worry free holiday. There’s unlimited food, including vegetarian and vegan dishes. For the Yoga Retreats, we can create a special menu just for you. Please ask and we’ll try very hard to meet your needs, if the food is available in Lombok and our chefs have the recipes.
By having your own shala with a private kitchen, we can supply the ingredients if you want to cook and enjoy this time together. There’s a huge wooden table in the shala to share your meals, away from the main restaurant of the resort. The unity and intimacy will bring your group together in harmony. Maybe bring a USB of music to play. Words fail to reveal the essence of your experience. Only the environment and your friends can do that … and time in Heaven on the Planet.

Book your Trip

YOUR YOGA

Heaven on the Planet is the perfect location for yoga, meditation and your wellness needs. South East Lombok is renowned for its unspoilt coastline and the dramatic views with the limestone cliffs of Ekas Bay, the golden beaches and clear turquoise bay. This can all be seen from your yoga mat while listening to the gentle undulation of the waves as they break on the beach below.

Planet is intimate. We can pamper you by running yoga classes at times that suit. Maybe the dawn surf is first, maybe the yoga is first. Please ask for a private class at a time that suits you and our very amenable instructor will help.

YOGA FOR LIVING

The views are unsurpassed and the caring staff are at your service. After yoga, take a short stroll to the white sand beach and the clear waters of Ekas Bay or contemplate on the landscaped roof of the yoga centre. Maybe treat yourself in the Spa right next door.
