Yoga Retreat Themes: The Foundation of Our Experience
This retreat is a dedication to deepen your yoga practice. We emphasize a holistic approach to the practice and expand your understanding in a variety of ways. The workshops will focus on yoga philosophy, asana alignment, how to develop a home practice, as a perfect recipe to fall even more in love with yoga.
Weekly Excursion : Elephant Safari – this week we head to Udawalawe National Park to visit the Sri Lankan wildlife. After we get into our jeep, we take a journey through the park to spot Elephants & other native animals in their natural habitat.
Sometimes we need to get away to refresh ourselves. This week’s offering focuses on releasing unnecessary stress that builds up. We deepen into the practice to connect back in with ourselves, let go of what no longer serves us, and channel our energy back to what is really important. Join us this week to dedicated time to self care.

This week, our resident teachers will take you on an inner journey exploring the seven chakras. We will experience our main energy centers as more than just abstract concepts, but try to learn to access them through asana practice, meditation, and special workshops.
Weekly Excursion : Mulkirigala Rock Temple-an ancient Buddhist heritage site over 2,000 years old! On the way back, we stop by Hiriketya Beach to have a fabulous lunch and dip in the pool at Jasper House (Talalla’s beautiful sister property).
On this retreat theme, we connect with the bhutas – the sanskrit word for elements. In Yoga/Ayurveda traditions, the 5 elements are classified as Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether and are considered the building blocks of matter. Through classes & workshops we begin to experience elemental alchemy in nature as well as expressed.
Weekly Excursion: A visit to WeCare Veterinary to see the puppies! WeCare are a NFP animal charity providing free veterinary care to less fortunate animals around the world. We then take a trip to the nearby “Golden Buddha Temple” to offer our prayers and blessings.
