Great food is at the heart of any community, and the Village is no different! Luckily we are blessed with our on-site cafe – Ginger & Jamu. Run by chef (and Santosha graduate!) Jamie Chick, the café serves a selection of healthy, hearty meals, all created with the most important of ingredients – love!
“Best food on Nusa Lembongan by a long shot! If you want fresh, super healthy Canggu style food not super expensive, this is the place to come too! Everything is made from scratch using only the healthiest freshest ingredients. Cannot recommend more… thank you Ginger & Jamu! Finally bringing good food to Lembongan!” ~ Holly, Feb 2017
At Ginger & Jamu, great care goes into creating the most most-watering meals possible using the freshest ingredients available. Our chef is a yogi and expert in nutrition – he knows exactly what our busy yogis and surfers need to keep them healthy, happy and radiant during their time on the island.
We leave out the nasties like MSG – and leave in the healthy benefits of fresh, local produce. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free eaters will love the care and attention lavished on creating meals to suit all dietary needs. People with allergies can request some extra care (please speak to Jamie to arrange)
We cannot wait to share this incredible dining experience – and view – with you.

Yoga and Nusa Lembongan go together like sunsets and Bintang! Make the most of your time on the island, and join us for our energising and revitalising daily vinyasa Yoga classes. Suitable for all levels these classes are held in our traditional open-air Balinese style shala. Drop in for just a few classes if you are visiting the island for a short time, or add them to your daily routine if you plan to stay longer. We welcome all students!
“Nusa Lembongan is the perfect place to do the YTT. I always called the island my “yoga bubble” as it is far away from the hectic main island Bali and the many tourists, the locals are super chilled and friendly and you find amazing places to eat healthy, do yoga and go for a surf. Not to mention the amazingly stunning beaches and the crystal clear water.”
“Nusa has this crazy chilled vibe, its like being in a community, the locals and people on the island are always happy and helpful and every corner you turn is another slice of paradise.”
“The island of Nusa Lembongan is special because it gives you what you’re searching for… for all the individuals who go there. The island life itself was nice, the people on the island are so nice and the fruit is amazing! I loved Santosha because not only does it have an amazing location, right on the beach which is nice because during class you can feel the breeze during class but also see the beautiful sea and beautiful trees growing out front.”
Nusa Lembongan is only 30 minutes by boat from Sanur in mainland Bali, and many boat companies means competitive rates to get you here quickly and affordably.
Village visitors and Yoga Teacher Training students can easily organise a full door-to-door package; including pick-up from the airport, quick and easy transport to the boat to the island, and drop off at your chosen accommodation. This means no worrying over taxis or drivers – let someone else do all the organising for you. You’ll be relaxing in a hammock in no time 🙂
We can recommend a boat company who will organise all transfers for you – airport to boat to hotel – all with a generous discount for Santosha Yoga Teacher Training students and Village guests. More details in our Accommodation Guide.
Santosha Yoga and its teachers honour every one of its students as individuals, deserving of receiving the best quality experience possible. Our Yoga Teacher Trainings will uphold a standard of excellence and devotion to the practise while respecting individual needs. We are committed to creating a space of safety and respect that will acknowledge and allow each individual’s innate equanimity, truth, empathy and joy to grow through the process of learning. May all who pass through our courses feel a renewed sense of ease, vitality and enthusiasm for life. May you be blessed with health, compassion and love, and always be free of suffering.
Attend our Level 1 YTT 200-Hour course, and in the extremely unlikely event that by lunchtime on the second day, you feel that you do not want to complete the course OR you do not want to become a Yoga Teacher, we will refund your money minus the non-refundable BUT transferable deposit fee.
Santosha wants to make it totally risk free for you, because we believe that once you begin this journey, your life will change in such a way you could never have imagined!
