sri lanka retreat
BALANCE, REST & PLAY
journey through the elements
20-26 APRIL 2023
ABOUT THE RETREAT
Welcome to our bespoke Yoga, Surf and Rejuvenation Retreat. On the lush, tropical southern coastline of Sri Lanka, find yourself amongst the palm trees on our peaceful and secluded beachfront property. With panoramic views of the clear blue Indian Ocean, natural sea sound and breeze, and idyllic sunsets, we ensure a relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
If you are looking for a 7 day escape to centre yourself in nature with other like-minded people; or if you aspire to recharge your body, mind and spirit, you have found yourself the perfect place.
Our opening ceremony starts with a Gong Meditation with our Sound Facilitator Zarine Dadachanji where you will be bathed in vibration - the ultimate welcome to a new space. This deeply immersive, full-body listening experience will allow us to drop in to our Centre after our journey and set us up for a restful first night in our new home for the week.
Our days will start with energizing yoga flows and end with soothing yin yoga & meditation. In between you have the option to indulge in 3 or 5 day spa relaxation sessions or alternatively you may choose a more physically challenging and active time with a private surfing class in surfers paradise, Hiriketiya Bay.
Known for its rich biodiversity, Sri Lanka is the ideal place for us to reconnect with the living world. Throughout the week, we will journey through the elements that exist within nature and within each of us, embodying fire, water, wind, earth and space. In Ayurveda, the ancient medicinal system of this land and culture, it is believed that these five great elements are what make up our living world; and it is only through recognising our innate connection to them that we can deeper understand ourselves and also open the doorway to an understanding of creation itself. Each day we will bring a different element to life; to learn, express and alchemise in order to bring a sense of equilibrium; finding harmony between doing and being, exploring our edges whilst honouring time for nourishment. A synergetic approach to balance both rest and play.
