Ashtanga Lanka offers Mysore-style yoga retreats in Sri Lanka.   We offer retreats on the south coast near Matara, and in the hill country near Kandy.  At each location you will find a nourishing, supportive, and friendly atmosphere.  Retreats are all inclusive so you can rest and recharge deeply.  

Morning mysore 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 more affordable it becomes, and the more you can deepen your practice.  If you are brand new to Ashtanga Yoga we recommend joining for a minimum of two weeks.  Check in and departure is normally on Friday or Saturday.
