We will be starting every morning with an invigorating 90min Vinyasa practice before breakfast, and then a chilled out, late afternoon flow with the exception of one playful inversion workshop.
For those of you that have been to a class, you’ll be familiar with my playful, honest, no-judgement style of teaching. I like to create a welcoming space for students new and experienced to find grounding and adventure on their mats. My sequences are challenging yet attainable, and I try and encourage students to achieve their goals in a safe and comfortable setting [especially when teaching inversions]. My classes are open to all levels, as I offer adjustments and alternatives for those new to practice and those seeking to explore something more advanced. My high-energy inspires the occasional laugh and a constant smile.
Located on 45 perches of tranquil, tropical gardens in the southern part of Sri Lanka in a quiet, secluded abode, and less than 7 minutes from beautiful Unawatuna, Wijaya and Jungle beaches. This lush villa is the perfect place to escape the stressors of modern day lives.
The villa consists of 3 double bedrooms, each with their own ensuite [two featuring moon roofs to shower under the stars], a fourth room with two twin beds, and a separate double bedroom offering a bit more privacy. The rooms feature high quality Egyptian cotton bed linens, towels and mattresses, equipped with mosquito nets for added comfort.
The open plan living areas invite and welcome re-connection, conversation and laughter, and the house flows fresh with gentle breezes from the ocean and sounds from the local monkeys and island wildlife. Natural, serene and secluded, the house effortlessly blends sophisticated European elegance with Sri Lankan tropics and has the unique quality of combining both privacy and open communal spaces depending on your mood.
Culture is a huge part of this retreat, and this will be reflected in the food offered. Think fresh tropical fruits, local vegetables and hand-caught fish from the nearby sea. Traditional delights such as savoury egg hoppers, fragrant jackfruit curries, and leafy mallung name a few of the culinary highlights. The menu has been designed to be light, healthy and restorative pre and post yoga. 2x Daily Brunch and Dinner is included, as well as unlimited fruits, snacks and refreshments throughout the day. All dietary requirements will be catered for.
