Earthlinks SriLanka, Dodandugoda - Walamulla Rd, Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka

Renew Yourself Yoga Retreat Sri Lanka

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Sri Lanka.

Start the new year with a new you! Catch a wave, get lost in the jungle, and savor time. Tune into yourself. Connect to the earth. Daily yoga lessons and workshops, daily trips to discover the beauty and the culture of Sri Lanka, surf lessons and the healing power of Mother Nature at her best. If you are tired of the same old New Year Eve and what you need is the sound of palm leaves rubbing against each other, a gentle gusts of wind, warm sands, and ocean waves at the edge of endless beaches, then this is the right place and the right time for you.

This retreat venue has been ranked among the 10th most beautiful retreat place in the world! It is a cozy villa with only 10 rooms, 5 of them are in the classy, antic (1934) colonial house, recently refurbished and fully equipped. The other 5 are located in the newly built modern house, all situated among palm tree tops and lush garden, close to pool area and spacious yoga shala. There’s also private balcony spaces with tables and chairs for night-time or morning reflection.


Everyday will be different, you will explore different parts of yourselves and different aspects of Sri Lanka. You'll wake up with a gentle yoga flow and meditation every morning, followed by a healthy and yummy vegan breakfast. Day trips will take most of the day, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Everyday you will discover pieces of culture, nature, and history that will stay in your hearts for a long time.

There will be two days where you'll have free time in between breakfast and your workshop. You can spend the time relaxing or exploring on your own. Late in the afternoon, Down to Earth Mindful and Conscious Retreats will run interesting workshops and relaxing activities to keep exploring within you and give time and space to yourself to learn important tools for self-care and self-love.

The best vegan dinner ever is served at 7 p.m. and after that it's free time to jump in the pool, play, read, chit chat and enjoy the beautiful souls that surround you. The workshop topics range from pranayama, self-love, unblock your chakras with essential oils, and full moon singing bowls sound therapy.
