What to expect from this Retreat? 

THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER YOGA RETREAT! With every retreat I create, I like to bring along tools for transformation.

I hope that people will leave our retreats feeling empowered to change and live their best life!

This retreat in Sri Lanka will also be a cultural immersion, our retreat location feels like a home where we will have daily interaction with the local community and their culture! This is the first time I decide to include surf lessons in our retreat. I never wanted to make surfing the star of our retreats... Although surfing is a big part of my daily life I always wanted the main focus of our retreats to be personal development, which still is. But I wanted to create this new experience because surfing can help us get out of our minds, be in the moment, practice focus and concentration, so I thought this could be a wonderful addition to this retreat.

The surf lessons ARE NOT EVERYDAY. But you will have plenty of free time if you would like to take extra lessons. I would like to give all of you a taste of all the other amazing workshops I prepared for you and time is limited! During the course of these 7 days I will share tools that helped me to create a better and happier life for myself. Besides, this will be an opportunity for you to rest and reset your mind & body from daily life stress.

 

In addition to our daily Yoga practice, Pranayama (breathing) and Meditation we will have workshops on specific topics. Every practice and workshop is carefully thought of with a higher purpose to help you in real life scenarios and work on yourself. We often use Neurolinguistics programming techniques and hands on exercises in our group dynamics. Read more about NLP here.

 

But don't worry! It's not just about hard work, we will also have plenty of time to take nature walks, go to the beach or explore the villages nearby!

Where?

The retreat will take place in a small village in the south coast of Sri Lanka. Weligama is about 2 hours drive from Colombo airport. You don't need to worry about the details, we will be waiting for you on arrival to take you to our beautiful retreat location.

 

This seaside residence located just 2 steps from the beach (literally!) has a beautiful garden and Yoga platform with ocean views! Our hosts have carefully thought of every detail in every space from the rooms to the common areas to make you feel completely at home during your stay.

The food prepared during our stay is vegan or vegetarian using local produce and employing locals to ensure conscious and sustainable environment friendly practices to the standards we believe. If you have any dietary requirement please make sure you let us know in advance.

Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, full of culture, white sand beaches and lush green forests. We will also take you on some local tours to explore this beautiful country, support its people and value their heritage.
