“Ayubowan” is the word used in Sri Lanka to greet someone – meaning to a long life. What a beautiful idea and what a beautiful country. Sri Lanka is the perfect destination for our very special yoga retreats in 2020. We have this year a super location, with beautiful bungalows, our own pool, cooks and yoga shala right next to the stunning south coast. This week-long yoga retreats are designed for past students wanting to expand their practice with new ideas, friends who’ve been meaning to try take on modern yoga, and all who want a beautiful immersive week balancing both the efforts of yoga and the relaxing sunshine of the tropics. So, come immerse yourself in transformative yoga and mindful meditation sessions while connecting with like-minded souls. Explore new ideas in yoga, interesting conversations about modern philosophy and emotional intelligence, lots of chill time, a cheeky surf and of course, lots of yoga.

YOGA & MORE

This yoga retreat is designed to transform your body and reshape your thinking. Each morning we dive in to pranayama, meditation and an alignment vinyasa practice. We enjoy a break from practice during the middle of the day, with a supervised self-practice session for the enthusiasts. Our afternoon practice is more interactive, as we learn about our posture, movements, variations and modifications to make our practice stronger, safer and more expressive. 

For yoga teachers this is the perfect opportunity to play with some new ideas for your own practice and teaching. Yoga newbies are also be welcome, as this course is perfect to help set you up with a solid foundation for your practice. 

We’re big fans of learning from each other, so, following practice, our conversation dinners encourage meaningful talks about the how’s and why’s of life. After this week-long yoga retreat not only your body will be feeling great but you’ll also be grateful for all this amazing people you’ve met and to be part of our yoga-family! 

STORIES FROM OUR LAST RETREAT

“OUR RETREAT WAS FANTASTIC!”

“Stefan is one of the most knowledgeable teachers I have ever had the experience of practising with. He has a deep understanding of the principles of yoga – he seamlessly blends traditional lineage with his own unique twist for western bodies and modern lives. He structured the retreat in a way that meant you don’t burn out at the start, a clever combination of practices mean that there is never too much pressure on any one part of the body and yet by the end you feel as if you’ve had an opportunity to strengthen all aspects of your body and practice. I particularly enjoyed getting to know the other attendees, we formed new friendships and had ace discussions as well as lots of giggles, Stefan and Jane facilitated really well-nothing was a stress, the food and accommodation were both brilliant. I came away from it feeling like not only had my practice depended but my spirit had lifted. Wholeheartedly recommend.” – Jane Pendry

“I SIMPLY HAD A FABULOUS WEEK!”

“I had a great time at Stefan and Jane’s retreat in Taghazout, Morocco.  Having done my YTT with them earlier in the year, I knew the yoga classes would be great.  And they did not disappoint!

To make it even better, the venue they selected was extremely comfortable, beautifully decorated and spacious, perfect for a group of dedicated yogis.  The location was superb: right by a beach in an incredibly gorgeous country!  I did a few excursions during my stay which were also great and well organised.
Everyone was very well looked after by Stefan and Jane but also by the staff on hand.  We all left feeling rejuvenated, very happy and wanting more!
I cannot wait to visit them in Sri Lanka!” – Christel Thimont

“I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND STEFAN’S RETREAT!”

We just end up a week immersion with him full of great knowledge and rich of new things. it was just an amazing experience for me as a yoga teacher. I learned many things for myself and happy to share it with others. I wouldn’t thank you enough. looking forward for the next experience  ” – Ihssane Sarif
