YOGA is not equal to YOGA …, or “All you need is LESS …”
Sanjeewa’s Yoga Retreat shortly described by his participants: “unique”, “not to be found anywhere else”, “touching”, “deeply changing”, “extraordinary”, “a revelation in regard of self-healing”, “balm for the soul”. “You just have to experience it yourself”.
Nowadays, Yoga is very variegated. The offer is incredibly large, there are various teaching styles, numerous, professionally trained teachers. So, it should be so easy to find the right practice? Our participants often deny this thesis. They feel overloaded and overwhelmed just because of this variety, and after a stay with us, they are looking for exactly that yoga experience they had with us.
What exactly is this yoga experience with us? Maybe something like “back to basics”. In other words, “back to the origin”, “to the essence”. Simple, clear, pure, without any “decoration”.
We let go of any outside distractions (sometimes also the “nice” distractions), and in this quiet simplicity, you can easily capture the essence: YOU! IN YOUR FULL PRESENCE! Just as you are, and perhaps even in a way you have never seen yourself before.
The SILENCE, the LOVE – to yourself, and the skill of LISTENING to yourself, our daily attention in the retreat.

Ayurveda Shunyata Villa, a small and fine Ayurveda resort, is located in Induruwa on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, about 65 kilometers south of the capital Colombo. Depending on the time of day, it is a 1.5-2 hours' drive from the airport via the new highway. Induruwa is a small fishing village. The major tourist centers like Bentota, Aluthgama, and Beruwala are 5-10 kilometers further north. In the middle of the idyllic Induruwa beach, right on the Indian Ocean, you can spend your Ayurveda holidays at the Ayurveda Shunyata Villa. On the land side, the coastal road and the old English train line offer good travel connections to the north and south of Sri Lanka. The well-maintained wide beach and the wonderful clean sea are the highlights of this place. Even fishermen from the surrounding area come with their boats, because of the fish wealth in this stretch of sea. There, you can enjoy your Ayurveda cure and long beach walks in a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere, without being approached by beach vendors or "beach boys". %The passage from the Ayurveda resort to the ocean is fluent so that you can enjoy your meals in a fantastic and tropical atmosphere, for example, under the mangroves on the beach. In the main season, the stone and coral free beach with its fine golden sand is perfect for bathing. However, in some months of the year, it requires good swimming skills.
Ayurveda Shunyata Villa's chefs and "alchemists of life-energy" pamper you with daily fresh Ayurvedic gourmet menus after the specification by the Ayurveda doctors. Ayurveda Shunyata Villa provides full board.
You can do a river cruise to Madu Ganga, go to Kande Vihara, a big temple with a big Buddha statue, visit the moonstone mine, visit the very old temple of Galapatha with a quiet atmosphere, take a trip to Galle, Lunuganga, or Brief Garden
