Ashtanga Lanka

We are 100 meters from this bay!

At Ashtanga Lanka you will find a relaxing atmosphere, friendly community, and daily yoga instruction.  Since 2004, we’ve been creating a home for Ashtangis in Sri Lanka.  Both beginner students and experienced Mysore practitioners are always welcome.  Deepening your practice, meeting people from around the world and experiencing the beauty of this country will make your holiday memorable.  

You will have time to lay on the beach, surf, enjoy an Ayurvedic massage, take a day trip, or simply read a book and do nothing.  To compliment the morning practice we offer meditation, Pranayama, Yin Yoga, AcroYoga, Slack-lining, Kirtan, clinics about the Ashtanga Yoga method and Yoga philosophy discussions.

The minimum visit is one week but we highly recommend two or more to get the most from your stay.  All classes are taught by Jacob Handwerker and Jana Wettich, except when we host a guest teacher.  This year we’re excited to have Clayton Horton teaching during the Christmas & New Year holiday.

For more information about our offerings and Ashtanga Yoga please visit the Yoga page.

Full time Mysore program: December 13, 2020 to April 2021.
