Head to south Sri Lanka for a luxury yoga retreat combining top class yoga with Adam Husler and a beautiful beach destination. Our location is set on a sandy beach with crystal clear waters surrounded by coconut groves in the paradise bay of Hiriketiya. Enjoy lush tropical vibes in our open-concept villa and be immersed in a powerful week of alignment focused vinyasa yoga with one of London's best teachers.

Clear

Summary

Hiriketiya is a beautiful horseshoe shaped cove with a small reef and beach surf break. Away from the commercialised tourist zones, it is a hidden gem with a gentle swell and perfect waves ideal for swimming, snorkelling and beginner surfers.

Our exclusive villa has ten beautiful bedrooms with king or twin beds, ocean or jungle views and open air bathrooms. You’ll wake to the sounds of monkeys and native birds and the sound of the ocean waves will lull you to sleep. The large rooftop lounge provides perfect views of the incredible sunsets and our long lap pool and sunbathing deck complete our idilic setting.

Your retreat will include twice daily yoga classes with Adam, delicious vegetarian meals cooked by our private chefs and a chance to enjoy the local bay and soak up some rays on the beach. Mid week you have an option to visit Udawalawe National Park where elephant sightings are guaranteed or go whale watching in Mirissa. Or just rest, relax and enjoy the beach or try some surfing.

Open to all levels of experience apart from complete beginner, this yoga retreat is best suited to people who want to be immersed in their yoga practice with one of London’s top teachers and enjoy a chilled beach location.

Yoga with Adam Husler

Your yoga classes will be between 1.5 – 3 hours long and some will be workshop style so you can explore aspects of your practice in detail. Your afternoon classes will be longer than morning sessions to give you space and time to go deeper.

Adam uses his diverse background and understanding of the body, to give you a strong, smooth flowing class, where breath, body and mind are linked as deep postures are slowly explored with anatomical precision and intelligent alignment; building heat and strength in your body.

FAQ

Is this retreat suitable for beginners or someone with no yoga experience? As you’ll be in small group you will get plenty of attention and care from your teacher. Students of all levels will find these yoga classes rewarding but we do recommend you have some knowledge of vinyasa.

Adam seeks to remind all that an asana practice is a very subjective experience, so whether you are a yoga teacher or a yoga newbie prepare to work hard as they’ll be plenty of options to challenge all.

Please contact us in advance if you have injuries, health conditions or questions about the yoga style. 

What are the class sizes? We have space for 14 guests on this yoga retreat.

What do I bring with me? A comprehensive packing list is included in your welcome pack which you receive 8 weeks before departure. If you want to plan further in advance just ask us and we’ll send it to you.

I need to bring any yoga equipment? We do provide yoga mats but many people prefer to bring their own, or bring a thin travel mat to place over the ones provided.

Is this retreat a detox? Can I drink alcohol? We encourage you have a healthy week reap the benefits of your retreat.  However, if you feel like the odd glass of wine or a treat it’s fine with us.

Smoking on retreat? We don’t expect you to give up smoking to come on one of our yoga holidays but recommend cutting down before you come and keeping your smoking to an absolute minimum while you are with us. We do expect that you will be mindful of others who do not smoke though please.
