SRI LANKAN YOGA & SURF RETREAT 2019 – LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!


Over the past couple of years, hipsters, yogis and surfers looking for a quieter and more authentic alternative to the overblown beaches of Unawatuna and Mirissa have sought Hiri’s still-rustic charm, picture-postcard setting and gentle surf, though this hasn’t yet tipped the balance.

Big Love from the GYL Dream Team!

It’s your time to rejuvenate and energise your body and mind, give surfing a go, meet wonderful new people, improve your yoga practice, feel inspired, reset and recharge, laugh lots and experience the Good Yoga Life here on this magical island of SRI LANKA!!!

You’ll experience the pristine beauty of nature surrounded by leafy coconut palms and far-reaching ocean views. Our eco-luxury Sri Lankan home offers the perfect blend of quiet seclusion and the buzz of beach cafes lining the palm fringed shore at vibrant but super chilled Hiriketiya Bay a short walk away.

Voted one of the top 10 best winter sun destinations for 2018 by The Guardian, Hiriketiya Bay is a surfer’s paradise where you can swim with turtles in the crystalline waters of the bay and surf in the beautiful waves suitable for all levels.

Enjoy yoga in our private poolside shala looking out to monkeys swinging between the coconut palms and chipmunks scurrying mischievously along the branches. This is yoga amongst nature with the sounds of the ocean and tropical, native birds…the perfect way to connect with the beauty of life, ground yourself and really feel like you’ve arrived in paradise!

You can go for a dip in the freshwater lap pool, check out the view from your eco-luxe bedroom, or head to to the beautiful Hiriketiya Bay for a swim and surf.

At night we can stroll down to the beach for stunning sunsets, live music, cocktails and chats under the stars.

THE YOGA!
Sri Lanka Yoga & Surf Retreat March April 2019

Your experienced team of teachers can’t wait to teach you everything they know and love on the mat!

Our daily yoga classes will take place in the morning and late afternoon. We’ll start our day with an energising vinyasa class, moving in time with the breath, and strengthening and stretching every part of the body.

The afternoon sessions will be a mixture of restorative flows and workshops to go a little deeper. You’ll float out of these sessions feeling inspired, relaxed and renewed.

After 12 yoga classes with us, you’ll leave with a greater understanding of yoga, meditation and breathing techniques that will help you to keep your yoga glow and zen vibe flowing.

THE SURF!
Sri Lanka Yoga & Surf Retreat March April 2019

Learning to surf on a tropical island is almost a rite of passage and during your stay, you’ll have two coached surf lessons to improve your skills, confidence and independence in the waves – whilst having loads and loads of fun!

The horseshoe bay of Hiri has waves for both beginners and the more advanced, so if this is going to be your first time on a surf board, you can feel relaxed knowing that there is a wave for you with your name on!

The crystal clear, WARM waters will invite you in and we promise that after your lessons, you’ll be heading back into the surf for more.
