"No frills, simplistic and very yoga focused retreat"

I was looking for very specific things in my next retreat and Nicholas' and Jeewa's place had them all. As I am teacher trained myself, pure physical exercise wasn't an option for me, which a lot of the retreats have got to offer. I was very lucky with Nicholas as his approach was very well-balanced and provided for all around yoga experience, including daily pranayama practice, meditation, strong asanas and general advice on how to be a good yogi outside the mat.

As an Ayurvedic student Jeewa was able to give very useful advice on the foods to avoid/include in our diets, kriyas to start the day with for better health and how we could tweak our lifestyles to ensure we maintain good balance in lives.

Both Jeewa and Nicholas as well as the volunteer Patrizia have shared their invaluable knowledge with us which I am sure we will all apply in real lives now that we are back home in Europe.

We were only a few minutes away from the gorgeous Indian Ocean, the beach was very quiet and safe, a perfect place to spend afternoons before the evening practice. It's a homy place, simplistic rooms with the basic things you need. It's a place with beautiful people, great attitude and positive spirit - exactly what yoga should be about.

I am very grateful to have experience all that.

"Beautiful people beautiful retreat"

This was my third and best experience with bookyogaretreats. Everything was magnificent. Nikolas is one of the best hatha teachers and the best yoga teacher i have had (and i have done many classes), he knows yoga. Thanks to him i could not only explore the capacities of the body, but get beyond it. His teachings are unique and unlike many of the generic yoga classes; its well thought through and customized. The pranayama classes were incredible, i will forever be grateful to Nikolas for what i have learnt. Jeewa is so full of love, beauty, sweetness, she is so sincere, i have learnt so much not only during our ayurveda consultation, but by simply observing her. Her spirit is so strong and deeply beautiful, i am grateful for having known her. As for the little miracle Gayatri, she is the sweetest blessing i was fortunate enough to interact :) everything was radiantly great during this experience, i am so grateful to Jeewa and Nikolas, wishing them best of luck with their business, may it prosper and blossom and may you always inspire us with your lovely teamwork :) next time i am in Sri Lanka will visit for sure

"Wonderful experience"

Both Nikolas and Jeewanthi were lovely and looked after all of the guests well! They would go the extra mile to ensure everyone was comfortable at all times.

Each yoga practice was slightly varied which kept it interesting and challenging.

The food was amazing and different every meal! Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Location was great and were able to go for a swim in the ocean each morning, just 100m from the accommodation.

"Highly recommended!!!"

It really felt like a family time being there, really homey and serious work at the same time we really improved our yoga and meditation skills and knowledge.

And got a great first glimpse on Ayurvedic medicine;)

The food was amazing (thank you Samantha!!!) and the place clean and perfect for us!

"Lovely retrait for personal growth"

The lessons are well structured, including pranayama / meditation / shanting, nice atmosphere, simple but good rooms (including mosquito nets), you can always ask them everything, the 3 meals and the juice are always fresh and absolutely delicious Sri Lankan food. It is on the beach so the wind from the sea is often cool and you can take a dip in the sea. I will recommend this to everyone!

"Nice way to finish my trip in Sri Lanka"

The yoga sessions were great. My yoga skills improved a lot in just 5 days. After the retreat I felt more confident and happy, it was a n(m)ice experience. ;)

"Pure yoga bliss :)"

I really enjoyed this retreat. The place itself was absolutely beautiful, next to a really quiet beach. With a combination of healthy ayrvedic food, yoga twice a day and swimming and walking on a beach I quickly felt a positive change in how i felt physically and mentally.

Ayrvedic consultation was really interesting and i was amazed how accurately Jeewa could read about my health according to the pulse. Got many beneficial advices from her and the treatments were amazing.

I’ve done yoga for many years already but I felt like I still learnt a lot from Nicolas. He gave us really practical tools from traditional yoga to take back to our everyday life. My knowledge and experience about meditation also got way clearer trough this retreat. We also got to learn kundalini yoga from Patricia which added a nice layer on the program.

Food was amazing and every day something different. Gives you a nice glimpse of traditional sri lankan food but in healthy nourishing way.

Accommodation was cosy and comfortable and the housekeeper came every single day so it was also really clean.

Adams Peak journey was probably the most challenging hike I’ve ever done but absolutely worth it! Leaves you feeling empowered and camera full of gorgeous pictures.

Highly recommending this retreat for everyone seeking for healthy holiday experience and deepening their knowledge on how to live holistically healthy lifestyle.

Thank you Yoga Light House for this experience <3

"Back in touch with body and soul"

Nicolas and Jewanti did everything to make us comfortable and to help with yoga training and ayurvedic readings and treatments. The house was very close to the beautiful unexplored beach.

I have not been able to train for a year due to damages but felt already during the first yoga class that this was a way back in to fitness. And the meditations and chantings also helped.

Jeewantis childhood friend Malki made fantastic genuine Sri Lankan vegetarian food, three meals a day.

So glad for this experience.

"Real Yoga with a True Yogi"

I chose this retreat because I wanted something deeper than just asana. Nikolas gave us the full range of yoga practices including chanting and pranayama. We even did one morning practice at the local buddhist temple. A truly fantastic experience.

The food was the best I had in Sri Lanka and Jeewa was really helpful with her Ayurveda advice.

"Surrounded by light, the ocean and the mystic of the jungle "

Jeewa and Nicolas make you feel at home, joining their family for a short time. The calm and positive atmosphere is filled with light and awareness.

from Hungary,

Our first ever yoga holiday was organised by Jeewanthi, Yoga Light-House and booked via BookYogaRetreats. Jeewanthi was doing great job to organize everything according to our travel plan and requirements. We stayed in Ging Oya Lodge, a wonderful eco-friendly, natural lodge managed by Mirijam and Leo. They both are fantastic host by creating peaceful, relaxing stay to their guests there.

The yogi host Nicolas is a unique person. He has conducted our morning and evening sessions with maximum focus, taking care of our mental and physical conditions, requests, etc... He is much more than just a yogi, he gave us advises and also shared his experiences. Ayurveda consultation with Jeewa was also personal, open and useful for future lifestyle as well.

All in all the Yoga Light-House experience was a great choice and we wish to thank them for the lifelong experience they all have provided. I wish we could return soon again!

When I reached out Yoga Light-House Sri Lanka, my objective was to relax, do yoga, be closer to the nature and meditate. Nicolas and Jewwa were beyond any expectations, such an amazing souls, with a huge and warm heart, I'm so thankful to have crossed their way. Our days were fulfilled with precious knowledge, yoga, meditation, self discovering, inside a "mini-jungle" in the beautiful and green area of Waykkala. We also enjoyed plenty of rest, pampering massages on the neighbor Ayurveda center, and a lot of fun, as our small group of 5 souls came beautifully together to share this amazing energy and experience. Nikolas is just fantastic, giving us full attention and care, pushing and encouraging each one of us to give our best, understanding where we stand individually and as a group. Jewwa melted my heart with her sweetness and big smile.. I have always loved the concept of Ayurveda, had read so much about that, and after my consultation with them I am even more inspired and motivated to go further. I left with an enormous feeling of gratitude and happiness I had a fantastic time with them, a deep and enlightened journey to within
