Sri Lanka Yoga Retreat - SOLD OUT

  • Talalla Resort Talalla Beach Sri Lanka (map)

Are you ready for the yoga retreat of a lifetime? Sri Lanka, the unspoilt gem of the Indian Ocean is the exotic destination for this international retreat adventure. A land of unspoilt beauty: clean, friendly, cheap, delicious food, contrasting landscapes and a melting pot of cultures.

Your retreat venue, Talalla Surf & Yoga Retreat is a sprawling sanctuary located right on the ocean front amidst swaying palms in the pristine blue waters of a protected bay. Your accommodation is open air, allowing you to drink in the sunshine and sound of the waves as monkeys and squirrels dance among the treetops. Leave your shoes and hairdryer at home: sarong, yoga pants and a swimsuit is all you'll need to bring yourself back to your true nature. Finish your daily yoga practice with a refreshing king coconut. Let the fireflies light up your night sky as you swing in one of the hammocks.  We will practice twice daily in one of the three yoga shalas, dine on delicious local or Western cuisine with all produce grown in the resort’s own organic garden or procured from the local fisherman and markets. Let's take day trips with our personal driver in an air conditioned mini van, spoil yourself at the resort spa or enjoy an evening cocktail right on the beach at a local hot spot (still barefoot in sarong and swimsuit)... the possibilities are endless. Your own private heaven awaits...
