The retreat is designed to recalibrate and bring balance to your energies by harmonizing the Yin and Yang aspects of your being and the life you’re living. Through the practice of yoga, breath, and mindfulness meditation, you will bring awareness to your physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. You will strip away the layers and take notice of your habitual thoughts, behavioral patterns, and stories you tell yourselves. This provides the energetic foundation to create balance and alignment with your truest, whole, and most authentic self.
You will allow yourself to step away from where you are at this point in your life, physically, mentally, and emotionally. You will begin each morning with an energizing asana practice then all sit together for breakfast and teas. Midday is free for you to walk or swim the beaches, go surfing, or hang out in the chill area or your amazing accommodation. Lunch will be served mid-day and you work excursions around this.
You will have an excursion to a holy temple and an onsite cooking lesson on traditional Sri Lankan meals. Meditation practice, Pranayama and a warming Yang practice begin the day and the evening settles with a balancing Yin practice and meditation. Kacy and Selina aim to make the program flexible as this is your time away to recharge, rebalance, and reconnect with your inner self. On your final day, you will either all join for breakfast or lunch together then begin departure back to Colombo.
This recently discovered bay is described by all who visit as "paradise". Hiriketiya bay is without a doubt the premier beach of south Sri Lanka. Away from the commercialized tourist zones, Hiriketiya bay feels like home away from home. Nearby undiscovered bays make the far south coast a hidden gem of swimming, walking, and biking trails. Prevailing easterly and westerly winds are kept away by the horse shoe shape of the bay, making swimming and surfing conditions all year round. During shoulder season August-December the waves are at their best after a slight drop in midyear swell size creating a clean beach and left point break.
