During your retreat, you will stay in a beautiful space in the middle of Mirissa, Club Mirissa. The accommodation is in 400 meters walking distance to the beach with Mirissa main spot directly on the right hand side and Mirissa beach break on the left. There are plenty of smaller restaurants and beach bars nearby to enjoy a beautiful sunset on the beach.

The space is perfectly appointed for all your needs. It is nice and quiet with the big garden area, lots of trees, bushes and plants, and small sitting areas all around in the garden. The bungalows are spread in the garden. There is a big dining area outside with a nice breeze but protected by a rood. The yoga space is also a beautiful pavilion, patio area in the garden.

You will be accommodated in a bungalow with private bathroom in the vast and richly green garden either by yourself, with your partner or friends, or as a shared bungalow.

During this retreat, you will have two yoga classes every day, Vinyasa in the mornings and Restorative Yin in the evenings. In addition to that, you will also have daily workshops with topics ranging from Acro, inversions, theater, to personal alignment. You will also be able to surf as much or as little as you wish. At an additional price, you will also be able to have surf lessons with Freedom Surf School in Weligama.

Yoga - how the classes are composed

Every class starts with a silent, group meditation. After that, you will do some asanas to get the muscles warm and smooth. Into the Vinyasas (moving with your breath), you will move through different postures in which you strengthen your core, your balance, or stretch your muscles. At the end of every class, there is again a meditation. In total, the classes last between 60 minutes to 90 minutes.

Vinyasa

Here, you will create a flow with your movements and breath. It is physically more demanding and perfect to bulid up muscle strength and increase your flexibility. Learn Surf & Yoga will show you some more advanced poses too, but as always, everyone only does what feels right to them.

Yin or cold yoga

Here, you do not warm your muscles but you will simply do light stretches with your own body weight and hold them for one to two minutes. This is good to learn to let go, get into deep relaxation, restore your muscles, and accept the status of self.

Individual alignment workshop

Here, Learn Surf & Yoga will help you to get the alignments right and focus a bit more on correcting instead of flowing through the class. You will do a quick warm up flow together and then they will offer you ideas and postures on which you individually can work on. It could be just the basics like downward facing dog, or advanced inversions like handstand, and more.

Daily schedule

  • 07:30 Vinyasa flow
  • 08:45 Breakfast
  • 10:00 Free time or finding the perfect wave for optional surf lessons
  • 16:30 Different workshops like individual alignments
  • 17:30 Restorative Yin class
  • 18:45 Dinner

This program will be held in Mirissa, a very cozy surf town in the south of Sri Lanka.

    "I had a great time at Lara's yoga retreat - with a mix of everything. Vinyasa yoga to wake up in the morning, yin yoga to relax in the evening, and yummy food! Add to that the relaxation in a beautiful setting - it doesn't get much better than that! And we had an outing to a lake..with a picnic and yoga on the lakeside -.very cool! I really liked Lara's technique - offering more advanced poses for those who could, and suggesting easier versions for those less able. She helped with gentle pose adjustments where necessary, without being intrusive. Overall - a highly recommended retreat!"

    "Learn Surf & Yoga is a first class operation. It is managed efficiently, with zero waste, which results in a big return of investment. The principal, Lara, managed to lead 28 Yoga sessions, prepare 40 meals, have a lot of fun interacting with guests and provide train station pick up/drop off with the assistance of no more then one staff member at a time. When first intrigued about the holiday, there were lots of questions, and they were answered within a short period of time. It was a productive holiday, a good balance of recreation, yoga, nutrition, study and conversation. Lara is smart about choosing location and understands what is needed. I have taken yoga related holidays with at least ten different organisations, and Learn Surf & Yoga is as good as any of them."

    "Amazing retreat in the Vosges with Lara and other yogis. Great classes for beginners as well as a little more experienced people. The environment was perfect to get focused and be productive on your projects. I personally used it for my summer strategic retreat and I cannot recommend it enough!!! I look forward to book a longer stay for next year."

    "Lara is not only an amazing and skilled yoga teacher, more important she is a gorgeous human being. That fact and the wonderful location in Mirissa made her yoga class very special. Lara is very attentive and passionate about what she's doing. After my first yoga class I felt extremely good, healthy, and at the same time pretty exhausted. She makes you work out in a very comfortable way. Go for it people! You won't regret any minute of the retreat."

    "My husband and I experienced a short two-days surf and yoga retreat with Lara in Mirissa, Sri Lanka and had an amazing time. We are both very much beginners when it comes to both yoga and surfing but I was delighted to be able to stand up on a surf board on my first lesson and I think I may have convinced my husband to continue practicing yoga with me when we return from our holidays! "

    "Lara went above and beyond to make our stay in Mirissa perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed her yoga classes. She has a beautifully, positive, and calming presence which is difficult to ignore. Wishing you lots of luck and success with your future yoga retreats Lara!"

    "Unfortunately we didn't know about the surf and yoga retreat in Sri Lanka so we could not do the complete retreat. We met Lara in Mirissa and joined the group for evening yoga classes. We are beginner yogis and Lara was a great teacher. Thank you again! You made our stay in Mirissa perfect! :)"

    "Lara's Yoga tut Körper und Seele gut. Auch für stressige Zeiten genau das Richtige um wieder seine Mitte zu finden. Lara macht wunderschöne Yogastunden auf eine sehr professionelle und feine Art. Auch der "Entspannungsfaktor" kommt nicht zu spät. Ich kann es Jedem/er nur herzlich weiterempfehlen, es lohnt sich! Immer wieder gerne :)"

    "Ich habe Lara durch Zufall auf Sri Lanka getroffen und mich sofort für fünf Yogasessions eingeschrieben, weil ihr Philosophie, durch Yoga einen Ausgleich zum Lernen oder allgemein zum Alltag zu schaffen, mir von vornherein zusagte. "

    "Und wer nun denkt, wir hätten uns ein wenig gestreched und meditiert, der liegt total falsch. Die Power-Yoga-Klassen sind sehr anspruchsvoll und dynamisch, gleichzeitig sind die Asanas aber auch total gut aufeinander aufgebaut, sodass man auch währenddessen immer zur Ruhe kommt und sich dem Flow hingeben kann. Die Hilfestellungen fand ich ganz besonders gut, Lara geht häufig herum und korrigiert die Haltungen."

    "Am Ende freut man sich total auf die Abschlussmeditation, nicht zuletzt aber auch wegen der tollen Massage, die jeder Einzelne bekommt. "

    "Ich kann sowohl Anfängern als auch Fortgeschrittenen Laras Klassen absolut ans Herz legen, jeder kann auf seinem Niveau praktizieren."

    "Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit!"
