Ashtanga Lanka offers Mysore-style yoga retreats in Sri Lanka.   We offer retreats on the south coast, and in the hill country near Kandy.  You do not need to have experience with the Ashtanga Yoga method.   We welcome students at all levels.  If you are brand new to Ashtanga Yoga we recommend joining for two weeks but one week is possible.

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 both locations.  

We practice Sunday to Friday morning at 7AM.  The longer you stay the cheaper the price.  Come and deepen your practice with us.   You will have a memorable and rewarding experience.      Check in and departure is normally on Friday or Saturday so that you get to be with us for a full week of practice.

South Coast 

Christmas 2019 and New Year dates will be announced soon.   I am still working on securing a location for the holiday season this year.  

The south coast has access to many beaches and some of the best surf spots in Sri Lanka.  

Asburnham Tea Estate  

January 10 to 17, 2020:

Perched on a steep hillside and surrounded by magnificent mountain views, the Ashburnham Tea Estate transports you to another place.  The historical tea plantation home is beautifully restored.  There is a natural river to swim in, 18m waterfall, endless space for walking, and glorious sunsets from the dinner table.   Join us for this special 10 night retreat and a taste of life in the tea country.
