a purpose-built venue for yoga retreats, teacher trainings, and events
Our venue is one-of-a-kind, situated by calm waters, offering a peaceful alternative to busy beach locations. Our spacious facility includes open living areas, cosy hideaways, dedicated yoga spaces, lush gardens, abundant tree canopies, and more. We’ve designed it with a sincere commitment to hosting yoga retreats and teacher trainings for those who have a deep love for nature.
Our location is very convenient – just a short five-minute drive to the charming town of Habaraduwa and its beautiful beach. In just ten minutes, you can reach the famous Kabalana beach, known globally for its surf. If you need anything else, the city centre of Galle is only 30 minutes away, providing all your essentials. When it’s time to leave, the international airport in Colombo is a comfortable two-hour drive from our doorstep.
the yoga shala
We’ve carefully designed our yoga hall to accommodate various teaching styles and workshops. The spacious, pillar-free layout ensures remarkable comfort, visibility and versatility. Situated among the peaceful surrounding trees, shrubs and flowers, our shala creates a tranquil atmosphere for deep practice. Additionally, we’ve equipped it with all the necessary props, making it easy to teach in any chosen style.
Lanka Yoga has an uninterrupted view of the picture perfect Koggala Lake from each room. You’ll see nothing but green and blue, with the occasional crocodile, family of monkeys, swarm of eagles, butterflies, fireflies, and other wildlife that will make it feel like you’re living in a national park.
Our retreat has a variety of stunning natural landscapes. There are fruit tree groves with mangos, jackfruits, rambutans, donkas, and papayas. On site, there are big grassy lawns for outdoor activities, sunbathing and practice sessions. We’re working to let nature thrive by nurturing the soil, growing native trees and running a completely eco-friendly yoga and living space. We also have a big vegetable and spice garden you can explore, pick from, and cook with.
Lanka’s atmosphere feels homely, welcoming and cosy. We pay close attention to details like lighting, staff training, and the music in our venue to create a warm, peaceful, and energising vibe. This naturally fits with the essence of most yoga retreats, but if you have a specific vision in mind, we’re happy to customise Lanka’s vibe to your preferences.
Sustainability lies at the core of our values. We acknowledge the urgent climate crisis and the depletion of our planet’s wilderness, and we are committed to making a difference. Our dedication isn’t just lip service; we back our words with actions, having invested in a range of sustainable solutions, from our water filtration system to our waste disposal.
