7 Days Yoga holidays with Yala safari and hiking in Ella

About us

We invite you to connect to the beautiful nature of Sri Lanka and your peaceful inner-self. Relax and energise in a small circle of daily yoga practices and gentle meditation. In an healing environment, defined by native birds sounds and stunning views of luscious king coconut palm trees, you can easily let go … Anna’s teaching expertise and customized yoga styles for various levels awaits you. 

Nurture yourself with the sweet flavours of fresh fruits and vegetables, taste the exotic spices of Lankan local cuisine and learn about the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, that is deeply rooted in the Sri Lankan culture. Experience the fascinating flora and fauna on walks, hikes or bikes, by waterfalls and lakes and of course during our safari trip. The island’s renowned Yala National Park offers pristine nature and amazing wildlife where elephants, buffalos, crocodiles and - if you are lucky - even leopards can be watched closely. Treat yourself to 7 enjoyable days for your body, mind, soul and inspiration in nature.
