FIND YOURSELF IN SRI LANKA

HOLISTIC RETREAT

Find yourself exploring Southern Sri Lanka and Safari with a small group of 10 like minded souls. A perfect combination of Movement and Stillness as you learn, discover & surpass the limits of your physical body & in your meditation practice. Be guided through fitness, yoga, restorative yoga, meditation and pranayama practises for the 7 days.



The retreat starts with an opening ceremony at 6pm on Saturday the 24th when you'll be meeting each other, myself and Alonso! Spending the first 5 nights in a beautiful villa near the city of Galle and the following 2 nights will be spent at the Chalet near Yala National Park, right on the beach!!!



NOTE: The retreat includes an 8th night accommodation and the activities finish on Saturday the 1st of December with a closing ceremony at 4pm.



Your retreat will be filled with mindful activities!

Daily Practices:

☯️ movement & mobility of varying intensities awakening the body and senses, boosting circulation, as well as strengthening the body with a focus on the core, co-ordination & stability.

☯️ yang morning yoga practice taken by Alonso to awaken the body & energy centres.  

☯️ yin yoga practice or mindful movement, with the sound of the ocean, to begin to slow down as the sun sets in the background readying the body for the calm of night.

☯️ meditation & pranayama; whether you're a beginner or you've developed a strong inner & outer connection we are both taking classes to help you build a better relationship with yourself, the earth & everyone around you.

A meditation technique I will teach is a healing Qi meditation. By the end of the week you'll be able to take this practice home to develop & master 💫

Throughout the week we'll be practicing mindfulness and engaging in some simple practises to help quieten the busy mind helping bring you back to the present moment.

I will take a yoga massage workshop to teach some basic techniques as well as key points to help with some common aches & pains which you'll greatly benefit from & be able to use on your friends and family!
