Three reasons to retreat with me in Sri Lanka


When I vacation or retreat, I want to learn, grow and be challenged. I want to feel all the feels and cry with both joy and sadness as I make space to let go of the past. I want to go deep, unveil and have bottomless real conversations with like minded brothers and sisters. I want to progress in my asana practice and continue on the path to my full expression. I feel ready to tackle the biggest questions there is and nothing can stop me.

But sometimes, I want none of that. I just want to enjoy the beauty of the place I’m visiting, rest and reset. I want to sit on my butt and read a good book, eat delicious food in pleasant company and adventure on beautiful excursions and enjoy the local scenery and culture.

Whichever mood you’re in – this retreat is for you.

1.     This is your chance to take your attention to the details in your asana practice. The true beauty of Yoga lies in the subtleties. Together we’ll explore the elements of nature: earth, water, fire, air and ethers. Through these you will come to understand how they reflect in everything you do. From how you walk, eat, cook, practice asana, work, communicate and make love, they are intertwined in all of life.

You can either enjoy the classes and as they are, or you can learn how to sculpt your own sadhana to take back home with you. This will be a unique opportunity to find balance through Ayurveda in your practice and to empower yourself in your yoga.



2.     Learn how to meditate, create ownership of your space, find connection to the breath and use subtle energy tools to manage your personal energy on and off the mat. The practices I’ve been teaching and studying for the last years are powerful. Your yoga sessions will include guided meditations that will support you through the retreat and that you can take back home with you. Some of the benefits I’ve experienced are that I sleep better, find it easier to make decisions, and my relationships have improved. With newfound clarity and awareness comes personal power and independence.

3.     Explore the exquisite scenery of Sri Lanka through excursions to a tea plantage, an Elephant Sancturay or Minneria Reserve and a breathtaking train-ride to Adam and Ella’s peak. We also have an Ayurvedic cooking class included for you as well as a day of hiking and canoeing in breathtakingly beautiful nature. This includes some of the best Sri Lanka has to offer and you get to do it all – or stay and rest to reset. You can create the retreat you need for yourself, just the way you want and need to. Let it be an adventure inward, as well as in the external beauty of this special place.
