Sunday 26th August -
Saturday 1st September

The Package

Our full package includes both Yoga and Surf, if you or your partner would like to join without partaking in an activity, we can be sure to accommodate you.  Both Yoga and Surf are suitable for everyone from beginners who will be learning their first ‘pop-up’ or ‘Down dog’ to those who wish to delve deeper into their yoga practice or surf technique.  A retreat is a fantastic opportunity for a solo adventure, don't worry if you are coming by yourself, we guarantee you will be leaving with an abundance of new friendships.

We are the area’s top-rated accommodation, facing directly onto unspoilt beach and the Indian Ocean. It’s the perfect place to reconnect with your Self through yoga and surf. Refresh, rejuvenate, relax and unwind in this unique landscape as we explore the four elements of Earth, Fire, Water and Air. This is definitely a Sri Lankan Yoga retreat with a difference, we aspire to ignite and enhance your inner creativity with a journey of stimulating yoga workshops, fun surfs in tropical waters and original activities connecting you with your natural surroundings.
