The Yoga Shala is essentially an open-sided hall that lets in nature's charms, from gentle breezes to the bird song of the surrounding Sri Lankan jungle and countryside.
On occasion classes are conducted further afield: beneath the splaying branches of a Banyan tree, or on top of Monkey Rock, or below the neighbouring temple - or wherever else takes the collective fancy of those present. This is a place to unwind, be gentle with yourself, live close to nature and simply be; or if you feel energetic, a wonderful place to exercise and rejuvenate.
Teachers who come here are very experienced and are open to teaching many levels of students within a class. Some may also guide dawn walks in the beautifully wooded surrounding hills for those who wish.
The retreat package includes your shared accommodations, all meals, snacks, drinks, two yoga classes a day, a one-on-one consultation with the resident Ayurveda doctor. A full day excursion per week, a massage per week, laundry service and the use of icicles, sauna, steam bath, hot water bathing area and taxes.
