Sri Lanka Yoga Retreat, July 16-19, 2015




This is much more than a yoga retreat.

Over 4 days I will lead us through a series of twice daily yoga classes designed to deepen your understanding of movement, enhance body awareness, and help you understand how it is possible to practice more challenging postures with greater ease and less effort.  

I teach active movements and emphasise free spinal movement as essential to the practice of posture. The environment is relaxed and friendly.  

Each class will be a combination of workshop and flowing practice so that you leave feeling as though you have both learned and done something.

We will have the opportunity for meditation practice in the morning for early risers.

Amazing Sri Lankan food will be prepared for us--much of it sourced locally.

In between sessions I also make myself available for discussion, to help you refine your technique or practice some skills so you can make the most of our time together.

Check-in Thursday 16th July 1 pm - Depart Sunday 19th July after breakfast by Noon

Venue: Talalla Retreat  http://www.talallaretreat.com/

Classes: Six 2 hour classes. First yoga class starts on Thursday afternoon at 4.30pm.  From then we will have 2 classes on Friday, 2 on Saturday, and 1 on Sunday.  

Aside from the usual yoga there is the opportunity to relax by the pool or at the beach, surf, get a massage, or just hang out.
