Yoga, Surf & Soul in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka · January 6 - 12 2020

A wondrous week of yoga, rejuvenation, and healing Ayurvedic treatments at a sumptuous resort in Sri Lanka.

Overview

Sri Lanka means "that which glimmers" or "that which shines" and that's exactly what you'll feel after a week of delicious food, deep sleep, daily yoga and movement classes, Ayurvedic treatments, sipping on fresh coconuts, learning how to surf and Sri Lankan sunrises and sunsets.

This glimmering week will take place at a retreat center overlooking the ocean, with a beautiful yoga space, delicious and healthy restaurant, and a sumptuous spa where you can indulge as much as you want in Ayurvedic treatments. Enjoy the massage included in your retreat or go deeper to do a full detox or healing program with herbal srubs, baths, massages, herbs & teas, special diet, oils and more.

Located in the center of the south coast, you'll be in the perfect place to explore the nature and culture of Sri Lanka. Surfing at nearby beaches, day trips to see the elephants and other animals, visits to the tea plantations, the historical buildings in Galle, local buddhist temples, whale watching, turtle watching and more are all within reach from our base camp.
