Program

Yoga, meditation, and nature

Welikande Estate Wellness aims to produce a holistic experience away from the everyday rush of the modern world.

They will take care of your body with yoga, hiking, and healthy food and take care of your mind with meditation, yoga Nidra, and quiet time in nature.

Take a break from your daily life - take time for yourself and reconnect to nature and your true self.

In your yoga classes, you will learn to listen to your body - giving your body what it needs. They make sure to modify for different levels of practitioners so that everyone can have a safe practice.

They offer two 75-minute classes per day. The morning class is a beautiful flow to awaken your body and mind. The evening class is a yin/restorative style which offers you space to stretch and relax after a day of trekking.

The meditation and yoga Nidra sessions take you on a journey to understand the mind and help you release mental and emotional blockages.

Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage, typically induced by a guided meditation.

It starts with a prolonged body scan, to release tension and hold in the body, followed by a guided visualization for the healing of the heart, head, and body. Often affirmations are used to reinforce the healing.

Every day they offer a different activity to broaden your experience of local culture and surrounding nature. Welikande Estate Wellness hopes to send you back home feeling recharged and with a deeper connection to your true self.

They offer daily activities, which vary from relaxing to a higher intensity. All of the activities are included in the package. Currently, they offer:

  • Waterfall Tour
  • Cultural Day
  • High Knuckles Trek
  • Sigiriya & Dambulla Cave Temple tour
  • Spice Tour
  • Hilyoa Trek
  • Ayurvedic Massage Day
  • Waterfall Tour
  • Yoga Immersion Day

Or if you want to simply relax in one of the hammocks overlooking the lake, that's pretty perfect too!
