Sri Lanka Yoga & Surf Escape

November 19 – 25, 2017

March 4 – 10, 2018

Welcome to our Sri Lanka Yoga & Surf Retreat. This is one of our favourite places in the world. We would like to invite you to join this amazing experience with other inspirational souls. Lets go surf, stretch, relax, explore and breath in this amazing cultural destination together.

The Destination

Ceylon, Sri Lanka. Where the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean gently lap the golden sandy shoreline. It is no wonder why Sri Lanka is the most sold Lonely Planet Guidebook and currently tops the New York Times Travel List. A culture so rich, colorful and welcoming; leaving will be the hardest thing you do.

Sri Lanka is the birthplace to the time tested, medical philosophy of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is sanskrit for “life knowledge” and is focused on balancing our bodies, individually, into a state of equilibrium. It differs strongly from allopathy as it is a personalized approach to healing and wellbeing, considering our different constitutions and paths in life.





The Villa

From the moment you land in Columbo, we will have a driver waiting to bring you to the stunning south coast where the retreat will be held in the tranquil little surf town of Madiha.  Two unique luxury boutique villas offer 8 bedrooms and two pools in a spacious seaside setting.  A simple open aired yoga pavilion sits beneath the large lawn full of towering palm trees, 400 metres of private beachfront, and an endless ocean horizon. This retreat will be an intimate affair with no more than 12 guests.

  • 2 meals per day + light lunch, juices and fresh seasonal fruit.
  • 8 air conditioned bedrooms
  • 4 en-suites & 4 bathrooms
  • 6 Doubles & two twin share
  • 2 swimming pools
  • Yoga pavilion
  • 400m beachfront
  • In house chef and staff
  • Local Transportation (own expense)




Yoga

Our yoga is themed around the yin and yang elements of life. Kori Hahn will guide you through two daily yoga and meditation sessions. The schedule includes morning vinyasa/ hatha/ mysore/ ashtanga classes and evening restorative/ yin classes. If you choose to participate, meditations will be offered in the mornings before yoga.  For the March 19-25 we will be offering 5 daily yoga specific workshops/discussions/ guidance in the afternoons.  Subjects will be on Ayurveda in Sri Lanka, Relaxation through Yoga Nidra, Various different methods of Meditation, How Yin Yoga Works and a deeper Pranayama Practice. While we practice these things during both retreats, we will just offer a little additional time to discuss and practice these healing tools.  Our focus with all yoga practice is to reset your body and mind to a state of peace and zen.

Surf

So you like to surf?  This stretch of coast line is one of the most wave-rich coastlines in the world.  From mellow longboarding beach breaks perfect for beginners to barreling reef breaks for the experienced, Sri Lanka will satisfy your thirst for waves. Pack your boards long or short. Jump in a tuktuk and explore the multiple point breaks & peaks up and down the coast. There is a super fun semi secret intermediate spot right out front of the villa.  Think: long fun rights and lefts, board shorts, bikinis, palm trees, sunshine, smiles and all around good vibes.  If you are a beginner and hoping to take lessons during the retreat, one of our favorite local coaches is based nearby on Weligama Beach. We are here to help you ride your first wave by sending you in the right direction.  After lots of consideration and thought, we believe the best way to support the locals surf instructors in the area is to send you directly to them.

Adventure

We offer not only a unique setting for relaxation with pool-side loungers, hammocks and postcard perfect beaches, but we encourage you to adventure and roam in order to fully satisfy your soul’s wanderlust. There is ample time in the middle of each day to explore the best of what Sri Lanka has to offer, adventure to national parks filled with wild elephants, sip tea in the famous tea plantations, listen to monks chanting in glistening golden Buddhist temples, and just relax in a lonely little hammock watching the sun dip below the horizon. We offer an “adventure guide” on arrival that gives you pages of ideas of the most popular sights to see as well as some personal favorites that you are sure to be the only tourist in sight.  Let your worries ebb out to sea and the peace flow back in.
