Yoga Retreat Themes: The Foundation of Our Experience

Week 1: Fall in Love with your Practice

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 : Koggala Lake—We connect with nature by taking a boat journey visiting Koggala Lake’s small islands stopping to visit a small local temple, and Spice Garden! All while keeping our eyes open for some of Sri Lanka’s amazing wildlife in and along the lake!

Week 3: Yoga Recharge and Renew

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.

Week 2: Energy Body Exploration

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).

 

Week 4: Alchemy of the Elements

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 the classes and workshops, we will begin to experience elemental alchemy in nature as well as expressed  

Weekly Excursion: Sea Turtles and Galle Fort—We visit a Sea Turtle Conservation project to learn more about these amazing animals and then head to Galle, an old Dutch colonial city that has an interesting historical heritage, great boutiques for shopping, and delicious dinning!
