Ulpotha's natural charms lend themselves readily to a deeply satisfying experience of yoga. If ever there was a place made for yoga, Ulpotha is it. Though Ulpotha was not planned at the outset as a Sri Lankan Yoga center, yoga very quickly took its central place in the Ulpotha experience through a series of serendipitous events. Having done so, it is hard to imagine a place better suited to the practice of this ageless discipline. A variety of yoga styles is on offer to suit a wide range of preferences. A variety of yoga styles is offered at Ulpotha's to suit a wide range of preferences.
Yoga will be practised in the yoga shala, which is essentially an open-sided hall that lets in nature's charms, from gentle breezes to bird song. On occasion, classes are conducted further afield: beneath the splaying branches of a Banyan tree, or on top of Monkey Rock, or below the neighbouring temple - or wherever else takes the collective fancy of those present.
Many of the world's most respected yoga teachers come to Ulpotha. Every morning there's an optional yoga class in a large, open-sided building with a palm leaf roof, or in the cool dappled shade of a banyan tree. Teachers who are teaching at Ulpotha are very experienced and are open to teaching many levels of students within a class. Some may also guide dawn walks in the beautifully wooded surrounding hills for those who wish.
As Ulpotha attracts high-quality yoga instructors, some guests come mainly for the yoga classes. But since Ulpotha was never intended to be primarily a yoga centre, there is no pressure to attend classes and life does not hinge on classes of any kind. So you will not feel like an outsider if yoga is not for you. This is a place to unwind, be gentle with yourself, live close to nature and simply be; or if you feel energetic, it is a wonderful place to exercise and rejuvenate.
One excursion per week to one of the nearby cultural heritage sites or the beach are included in the price.
