Step onto the green grasses of the villa, and step into peace.
We like to say we run yoga holidays, as retreats sound a bit too serious and structured. We have only 2 yoga classes a day. 7.30 to 9.00 AM and 5 to 6.30 pm with Sunday being the off day. Between the classes, on a typical day, you have enough free time to indulge in surfing, snorkeling, diving, visiting UN heritage site of timeless Galle-Fort, a tea plantation, an isolated Buddhist temple, cycling in the village and even having a fabulous in-house deep tissue massage.
