Sri Lanka Retreat
"Highly recommend this retreat! Such a phenomenal experience and investment in myself. This program was so carefully crafted and arrived at the perfect time to up my game of self-care. When I came back I found I was more tuned in and confident ....I'm such a work in progress but through Louise & Ranjan's carefully crafted programme it worked its magic. So much love and gratitude for you both."

To change old habits and patterns that are no longer serving you
To feel rejuvenated and energised
To connect to your Self and feel free to be yourself
To feel more relaxed and refreshed than you’ve ever been
To connect with nature and yourself by disconnecting from expected routines
To find a place where you can restore clarity of mind and heart
To de-stress and de-clutter your mind
To heal and recuperate
Then read on…..

These retreats are a healing, transformational ten days of cleansing your mind and body from its old habits and patterns. They are intimate, personal and adapted to your healing needs. Ranjan and Louise adapt their course of yoga, Ayurvedic treatments and meals to suit each individuals requirements, resulting in wonderful healing benefits for every participant.
The blend of Kundalini kriyas, meditations, mantra, Hatha Asanas and personalised Ayurvedic treatments, subtly move you closer to your heart, to your Self, away from fear towards love. Stresses, tensions, old patterns and pains are released, boosting confidence, self-worth and self-love, allowing an overflowing of joy. These are feel-good retreats - each day bringing more letting go, more fun and more connection to what really matters.
If you are experiencing grief, loss of any sort, relationship issues or difficulties, general communication and emotional problems, this retreat could also be exactly what you need at this time to assist with recovery.
The process is gentle and compassionate, personal and guided, tailored to suit you and your healing needs. You will be held and supported in loving and professional hands in this sacred and safe retreat space.
I had the most magical time here. I feel like a new person. So much more peace in my heart, and I feel more steady with so much more energy. xx

Words can't express the deep gratitude I have for this dynamic teaching duo. The way you have crafted this retreat Louise and allowed Sri Lanka to work its magic has been truly serendipitous and transformational. My heart is full of love, laughter and joy.

What a fabulous adventure it turned out to be. A magical experience that will stay with me forever. Thank you Louise and thank you to Ranjan who made "you're kidding me" advanced yoga postures good fun and doable...'ish'. The generosity of spirit shown by everyone made the trip magical. Ayubowan.

Awesome retreat!!! I knew it was going to be good but it exceeded my expectations...... I never felt so good. Louise's teaching alongside Ranjan's Ayurvedic treatments thoroughly rewired body and soul. They are the healing dream team! Wonderful experience. Would highly recommend.

Your Daily Schedule
Food plays a very important role in our Retreats. All healing begins with a correct diet for your body-type and a regular meal-time routine, which is why all food is included in the price of your retreat. Each meal is carefully selected by our Ayurvedic expert, Ranjan to bring the maximum benefit to each person.
A copious buffet style breakfast is served daily, with fresh juices, Ayurvedic herbal tea, local fruit platters, traditional Sri Lankan Ayurvedic breakfast. This is an important meal. After three hours of yoga you require energy and good nutrition to sustain you for the day ahead. Time is spent eating, digesting and being grateful for the delicious food. We also encourage eating with hands, not cutlery, the Sri Lankan way, as this slows you down and connects you more deeply with the flavours and the food.
The meals are mainly vegetarian, but occasionally chicken or fish will be offered. Lunch, like breakfast, is also a substantial meal and again time is spent around the table together, with Ranjan on hand to explain the dishes.
Dinner is a lighter meal, maybe a soup with some boiled vegetables and grilled fresh fish. Occasionally Ranjan treats us to some traditional Sri Lankan sweet delights - pancakes, curd and honey (my favourite!) and of course lots of exotic fruits!
This is not about "dieting" by reducing the amount you eat - you will most definitely not be hungry - this is about showing you how to eat correctly, at the right times , and to feel the difference in your body weight, and most importantly in your energy levels.
Learning to cook these delicious meals is not only an essential part of the retreat, but enormous fun with wonderful Karuna!
What Makes Our Retreats Special?
Our Sri Lankan retreats feel very special thanks to the cosy, intimate hotel where you instantly feel at ease, at home, free to wander in bare feet on the immaculate brushed concrete and tiles, share smiles and stories with staff... from groundsmen to reception... just like family.
And when you are at ease, relaxation flows. The yoga shala, open to the sounds and sights of Sri Lankan wildlife, provides a sacred, special and secure space to let go and begin your transformative journey.
All our treatments are both healing and unique. The Ayurvedic massages are given by Ranjan who understands and feels everyone's energy and healing requirements, without anyone having to say a word! You will never have received such deep care or felt such profound healing than with Ranjan's magical touch. You are cared for in a treatment room built into the rock, a therapeutic space naturally infused with the heady scents of herbal oils, caressed with the delights of jasmine.
Watsu water therapy with Louise is particularly unique and profoundly healing, deepening your ability to relax and let go, to trust and hand over control, releasing both physical and emotional blocks, deeply enhancing your meditative and spiritual experience during the retreat.
The Retreat is hidden away and quiet, surrounded by nature, and yet walking distance from the lively, trading activity of Unawatuna, its restaurants, cafes and long, sandy beach.
This place is special... it draws you in, wraps you up in something magical... something that lingers on in your heart and pulls you back again and again.
Why not join Ranjan and Louise in experiencing for yourself the transformative warmth of this very special place?
