The yoga program is based on the principles of Yoga Synergy
Yoga Synergy is a practice founded on traditional yoga but approached with a modern understanding of human physiology and anatomy. Influenced by the forgotten yoga’s of China and Japan, this practice focuses on the how and why of movement and flowing practices which look a lot like Qi Gong. Find more details about the yoga and the teachers in our info pack here.
The food is all vegan – all delicious
The all-vegan food is prepared by our chef, Mangala. Much of the spices and veggies come from Lanka Yoga’s garden.
The food is refreshingly varied, with unique dishes served every day.
Massages are available with our local Ayurvedic specialists. Massages can be catered to your needs. Be is relaxing to help you unwind. Or stronger to help you work out those knots in your back. Massages are available upstairs in our rooftop massage room. Or in our private massage room under the yoga shala. Either way, strong or relaxing, upstairs or down. Massages at Lanka Yoga are really special.
