Karma Being

21st - 28th March 2020

Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat, Sri Lanka

We journey to the South Western Coastline of Sri Lanka, to the Islands most beautiful beach where a luxury 5 star Ayurvedic Resort awaits. Take the opportunity to delve into Ayurveda, India's ancient 5000-year-old healing science which uses food, yoga, meditation, herbs, oils, massage and more to treat and prevent a range of health issues.

After arriving and taking in the stunning surrounds, you will meet the Ayurvedic doctor who will uncover your unique 'Dosha' or body type according to Ayurveda. During this consultation, you are prescribed amazing spa treatments specific to your needs for the course of the stay.

The tempo of each retreat day rests completely with you. In between delicious, nourishing feasts and spa treatments you have the option to participate in yoga twice daily and evening activities including meditation, a beach bonfire and more. Soak up the beauty of nearby Dickwella Beach or surf close by at Hiriketiya Bay. There's a left-hand reef break for intermediate surfers or a fun beach break for beginners.

The nearby town of Galle is an unmissable stop on any Sri Lanka Itinerary. Be swept up by the sea breeze and the smell of fresh spices in the air as you meander down the laneways within the walls of Galle Fort. Quirky boutiques, bustling cafes and galleries are reflective of the ex-pat artists and poets and designers who have made Galle their home. Centuries-old Dutch colonial architecture will wow you at every turn in this buzzing, fully functioning town which has earned UNESCO World Heritage status.

Making the most of your retreat days may be to simply honour the need to rest and relax poolside and soak up the energy of this stunning clifftop resort.

Don't miss the chance to explore the best of the island jewel that is Sri Lanka!

    Emily Spurling

    Emily is a Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher and certified Holistic Health Coach. Recognised as an expert in her field, Emily has garnered much acclaim from her viewership on www.fmtv.com where she appears alongside other industry leaders including Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and Dr Bruce Lipton to name a few.

    With a decade of teaching experience under her belt Emily is also an eternal student of yoga globally with formal training in Hatha and Vinyasa flow. She has beautifully combined these styles to create her own much loved yoga experience. This 'fusion' style is the perfect blend of light and shade, one flow will have you generating heat and building lean muscle and the next will have you blissing out in a slow, opening restorative sequence.

    “I love watching the profound effect yoga has on my students, a transformation takes place from the moment they step on to the mat to when their eyes open after Savasana. Yoga has been invaluable in my life as a mum of two young children and also in my previous corporate job. Whatever your situation, yoga can help you navigate the roller coaster that is life. It is my pleasure to share this gift with you.”
