    You will be staying in Ulpotha. Rooms are available in shared accommodation.

    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 centre, 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 is 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.

    • 07:00 - 07:30 Tea and fruit

    • Mika de Brito

      Mika teaches regular group and private classes in Paris and holds retreats around the world. Mika started yoga at age 21 with Baptiste Marceau, one of France's foremost Ashtanga teachers, who was later to become a good friend and mentor. Mika was a musician at that time, though yoga had such a pull for him that he left Paris a year and a half later to concentrate on teaching. In 2002, he met a swami in India who offered to teach him Tantric yoga. For the next three years, he traveled between Paris and Rishikesh in India.

    This retreat will take place in Sri Lanka.
