This training will take place in Sri Lanka. Its 2000-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites where legendary temples boast with beautiful details. The beaches are dazzlingly white and often untrod. They surround the island in a way that no matter where you go, you’ll be near a sandy gem. If you want to beat the inevitable languor, you can surf and dive world-class sites without world-class crowds.
Discover your favorite beach, meditate in a 2000-year-old temple, give and receive smiles while strolling a mellow village, gaze at birds and wildflowers, enjoy the little dishes that come with your rice and curry. Stroll past colonial gems in Colombo, then do yoga or go surfing. Sri Lanka is spectacular, it’s very affordable and it’s still often uncrowded.
Some might say Sri Lanka has been hiding in plain sight. Countless numbers of travelers have passed overhead on their way to someplace else, but years of war and challenges such as tsunamis have kept Sri Lanka off the world's sight. However, please note that you will not have time during the training to travel and discover the country. Please plan a trip before or after the training.
