 The retreat will be led by Eryck Brahmania who will guide you through a series of thoughtfully designed yoga classes, workshops and meditation. The morning will include a dynamic class for all levels with the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the yoga practice as well as workshop certain poses. In the evening, rejoin for a restorative practice and a chance to wind down and reset our neural pathways to leave you feeling calm and clear. The open air Shala lifts you into the treetops of the surrounding jungle and accommodates twenty students so everyone will have ample guidance.  Eryck trained with the amazing Claire Missingham during his career as a professional dancer and still continues to assist her at her classes and workshops. Students can expect deep yoga assists, well thought out sequencing and traditional roots of yoga using Sanskrit, krama vinyasa, use of precise and detailed anatomical alignment and uplifting music.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

  SURF   Hiriketiya Bay is unique in shape and topography making surf available approximately ten months of the year. During peak holiday seasons from Dec-Feb smaller swells from the west create a perfect beginners beach break wave and the occasional ride on the left point break. During shoulder season Aug-Dec the waves are at their best after a slight drop in midyear swell size creating a clean beach and left point break. During the middle of the year (when the crowds are away) larger southerly swells create some fun yet challenging waves right across the bay.
