Retreat to Sri Lanka
October 2022

We have been dreaming of organising a retreat for our community of students for a few years now. We wanted to take you to a culturally rich place surrounded by a beautiful nature. Unique and charming, yet accessible and safe. 

 

It was not an easy choice, but we have chosen a place known for its delicious cuisine, stunning landscape, and lovely welcoming people.

We invite you for a journey to an authentic, green and unspoiled island country in South Asia, attracting through the richness of it’s history and culture. To a place where tea plantations take almost 4% of the entire country, where coconuts grow in abundance and where Ayurvedic treatments are of the best quality.

The retreat centre we are taking you to, is set on over 12 acres of land, with breathtaking views overlooking Victoria Lake and the Knuckles mountains. Surrounded by mountains and lakes as far as the eye can see, Welikande its famous for its stunning views, delicious locally grown and prepared food and kind, sincere people. The property is purposely built for the nature and trekking lovers, offering a calm and peaceful space with open plan living, two yoga shalas and a swimming pool.

 

 

We are taking you for a 7-Day retreat journey to Welikande, where we will be offering daily Pranayama, Kriya, Asana, Chanting and Meditation practice. With 3 delicious meals and lots of additional activities, we will help you discover the rich nature and culture of this country and re-treat yourself, so you come back home feeling happier and healthier than you were before. 

Because you deserve it.

We will begin each day by the cleansing practices of kriya and pranayama, followed by Mysore classes for all levels of practitioners (no previous experience is required). During the day you will have plenty of time to relax with a book or chat with friends in a lounge chair or hammock, or to go for a day adventure to the stunning waterfalls and tea plantation. 

You will have a chance to immerse yourself in the one of a kind Pottery Experience or book an Ayurvedic treatment with the local doctor. For the more ambitious ones: Kandy Culture Tour or 10km Hiloya Treak will be also an option.
