Yoga with Caroline | Siargao Island Wellness Retreat


My recent journey of inspiration brought me to Siargao Island on the northernmost fringes of Mindanao in the Philippines. There I met Caroline Zimba, the lady behind the much-adored Yoga with Caroline.

Yoga is one of the best rehabilitative activities on the island. Set by the breezy & tranquil shore of Greenhouse Resort, Caroline orchestrates a wonderful symphony of murmuring waves, humming leaves & breathing bodies.


As I am now transitioning myself from the strain of big city living into a calm island lifestyle, nothing could be better than embracing a soothing start with yoga. It wasn’t really my first time to lie on a yoga mat but I have to say that I felt sincerely composed & energized in Caroline’s class.


Meet Caroline

London-based Caroline Zimba has been practicing the disciplines of yoga for 12 years. She trained under the gurus of Rishikesh, India & continues to travel around the world learning & sharing the joy of physical, mental & spiritual unity. Born in Zambia, Caroline shines with her innate African energy happily balanced with her peaceful personality.

Caroline has been teaching yoga for 2 years, moving around in some gyms in London & in places where she travels. Her practice is a fusion of different yoga styles like Hatha, Ashtanga, Yin & Vinyasa Flow.


Island Retreat

Yoga with Caroline is seriously making waves on the island & on August 21-24, she is inviting everyone to join a differently wonderful island yoga retreat all around Siargao.

This 3-day live-in program will have 6 yoga sessions on rooftops, beachfronts, poolsides & boat decks. Fun activities in-between sessions include sushi making with Chef Freeman of Lux Siargao, island hopping with the darling lifestyle boat,  Galatea, surfing in fantastic reef breaks & paddling along quiet mangrove trails.


The retreat fee is P15,000 inclusive of accommodations in a quiet hill-top hideaway & healthy breakfasts prepared by Chef Jodie Wallace. The event is open to all—from beginners to practicing yogins & everyone else who are passionate about natural wellness.


Beyond just surfing that puts this lovely island on the world map of active adventure spots, Siargao is also a haven for those seeking a special space for meditative journeys.

Joining Yoga with Caroline on this 3-day retreat not only allows you to feel the union of the body, spirit & mind but it is also a great way to enjoy the island & the delightful activities it can offer. If you are charting your map on where to go in the Philippines, make it Siargao Island on August 21-24.
