our yoga program

The yoga program is based on the principles of Yoga Synergy.

Yoga Synergy is a practice that blends traditional yoga with a modern understanding of human physiology and physiotherapy. Inspired by the often-overlooked yoga of China and Japan, this approach emphasises safe and healing movement, resembling flowing practices seen in Qi Gong. For more information about the yoga style and our instructors, refer to our information pack.

our food

The all-vegan food is prepared by our amazing kitchen team. Much of the spices and veggies come from Lanka Yoga’s garden, and we serve a delicious chef-designed menu that utilises as many local and home-grown ingredients as possible. The food is refreshingly varied, with unique dishes served every day.

At Lanka Yoga, we understand the importance of delicious and nutritious food that supports your mind and body, while also being sustainable for the planet. Find out more information in our info pack.

How much yoga can I expect on this retreat?

We offer two yoga classes a day that are up to two hours long. These classes are more than just practice, they involve experimentation, workshopping, and some time for deep relaxation. Even with this much yoga, there is still plenty of time for leisure, adventure or reading your favorite book.

Can I come alone?

Of course! You can come to this retreat as a couple, a group, or by yourself. With three room options, you can stay by yourself, or share with one, or three others.

How far is it to the beach?

At Lanka Yoga we are about a five-minute tuk-tuk ride to Habaraduwa beach, and then you’re on the endless south coastline. There are beaches for everyone, from beautiful views, to white sand and calm seas and of course, world-famous surf for all levels just 15 minutes away.

Seasonal information

The weather in South Sri Lanka is tropical, which means there is a dry and wet season throughout the year. From May until October, it is the wet season, and during this time it rains regularly, and the temperature usually drops a little. The rest of the year is sunny and mostly dry with more occasional rain. Temperatures are fairly constant all year round, with average temperatures of around 25-30°C.

What if I have a special diet?

All food served at Lanka Yoga is vegan, so no need to worry if you’re plant-based or vegetarian. If you have any other needs at all when it comes to food, please let us know and our kitchen team will adapt the menu for you.

What travel documents do I need?

You’ll need a passport valid for at least six months after your planned departure date. Visas are available online or on arrival depending on your passport.
