"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.

Hi there Jeewanthi!

So nice to get an e-mail from you. It has been a hectic time with work and a break up but over all I’m doing good. I’m trying to have peace with every situation life is giving me right now. I’m also starting a 10 months yoga training this weekend which I’m really looking forward to so this will help me :). I’m trying to focus on the things that make me happy! About the Ayurveda medicine: especially the herbs are really helping me. I’m making tea from them 2/3 times a day and I notice that if I combine this with good food, yoga and meditations I’m a lot calmer, more a wake en more open in the mind. The oil for the eyes is a bit hard to use because the liquid gets solid (because its colder here) and than its hard to get it out of the bottle.

The last days with you guys in Sri Lanka has gave me so much to work with! I’ll be eternally grateful for that. Again – thank you for being such kind and loving people. Please say hi to Nicolas for me! I hope you are both doing well and that life is giving you only good things.

All my love, Marte

I’m back in Germany and still feel lighthearted from all the impressions I had during the last month. One of the biggest impacts was definitely meeting you. Not only was the yoga-experience the best I ever had, but also getting to know the work of Ayurveda was incredible and I keep it with me all the time. Thank you for all this. My shoulder and my mind are so relaxed. The oil you gave me Madhu is perfect and gives my shoulder great warmth and comfort. India was just an adventure as Sri Lanka. Maybe a bit more chaotic, loud and dirty, but also great in colour, spirituality and vitality. I hope I’m able to come back and join an ashram one day. Until then I keep up my yoga practice whenever I can. I hope, you too are doing fine. Spreading that positive energy around the globe. I keep telling everyone about you, keeping you busy. Wishing you all the best and hope to hear from you soon!”

Dear Nickolas and Jeewa, Just writing to say thanks to the both of you for my time at Yoga Light-House, and apologies for my late email- I’ve been on the move since I left the lodge. Anyway, it was truly memorable and a very positive experience for me. I will remember the wise advice you both have given to me and I will try to put it into practice as much as I can. Some of the things have certainly stuck in my mind and I will remember them in times of need.”“I’m going to carry on with the yoga and pranayama once in back in London, I believe it will help me with everything and become strong! I got my palm read In Varanasi and he said yoga and meditation will be an important thing in my life and I might even open a center when I’m older ha! Jeewanthi thank you so much for the medicine again. I will start taking it when I get home and let you know how it’s working. Hope you have a lovely time with your family. Thanks again.”

Yoga Light-House Sri Lanka

When I booked my yoga retreat with Yoga Light-House Sri Lanka, I had no idea where I was stepping in. I had only a basic experience of yoga and had never done a retreat before. I thought I would do yoga and find a peace of mind and of body and I found much more than that. The place where we stayed is fabulous, calm, peaceful, perfect for the purpose, the food is great, the ocean nearby as well as a few Ayurveda centers. The small group of participants was a great combination, just 5 of us and we got on really well together, during and in between the sessions. And the yoga master is fantastic; I learned a lot of new positions from him, learned meditation and breathing. His wife Jeewanthi is a very attentive and caring Ayurveda doctor who gives the best advice to keep healthy. I came to practice some yoga moves, I left with a completely new body and a mind free of stress and worries and new friends. I will definitely come again.”

Hello Nicholai and Jeewa! (also Gayatri and Dexter and Tora and Chuti and all puppers, and Cookie and the other one - Baloo?), Its evening now in the cold London, and I believe you must probably sleeping to the sounds of the ocean and the howls of a lonely dog. (OR not sleeping for that matter! :)

I am well - the fruit a little worse, but still intact. Not ready to eat just this yet. I will be trying currying the mango and the guava, even though I have no idea about the spices proportion - however is it not a trial and error situation. I will be the one eating it haha! May I ask something - if my elements were in balance that day, does that mean that because that particular day I did not eat hot food, or is it because of long term effects of my diet, and I must say I eat spicy often...

Again, thank you so much for all the energy and wisdom and amazing food. Ayurveda will definitely be a part of my life now, as I have a strong intention to meditate and practice daily. My balance has gotten so much better after only four days thank to stilling my mind, and all of your lessons, about doshas and asanas, pranayama and inquiring, will stay with me.

I hope you are well and enjoying the time with new group. I will be missing you and the amazing air. I will not be missing the mosquitos!!! Do widzenia and many hugs and bows,
