Ashtanga Lanka offers yoga holidays around Sri Lanka.  We have retreats on the south coast, in mountainous tea estate regions, and the jungle hill country.  Beginners and families with kids are always welcome.  We ask that everyone registers for a minimum of one week, and if you're new to the "Mysore" Ashtanga method we recommend two weeks to get the most from your stay.

At each location you will find a nourishing, supportive, and friendly atmosphere.  Retreats are all inclusive so you can rest and recharge deeply.  Morning practice, daily meditation, and afternoon clinics help support you on the yoga journey.  

Traditional Sri Lankan rice & curry, a king coconut after yoga, delicious fresh fruit, and friendly yogis from around the world make Ashtanga Lanka feel like a home away from home.  Exploring cultural heritage sites and the natural beauty of Sri Lanka is possible at all locations.  

Come and deepen your practice with us.  We practice Sunday to Friday mornings, and the longer you stay the more affordable it becomes.   You will have a memorable and rewarding experience.      Check in and departure is on Friday or Saturday.
