7 Day, 8 night holistic self awareness retreat in sri lanka

Find yourself exploring Southern Sri Lanka, beaches and Safari with a small group of 10 like minded souls. A perfect combination of Movement and Stillness as you learn, discover & surpass the limits of your physical body & in your meditation practice. Be guided through fitness, yoga, restorative yoga, meditation and pranayama practises for the 7 days.

The retreat starts with an opening ceremony at 6pm on Saturday the 24th when you’ll be meeting each other, myself and Alonso! Spending the first 5 nights in a beautiful villa near the city of Galle and the following 2 nights will be spent at the mesmerising beach Chalet near Yala National Park, right on the beach!!!

☯️ movement & mobility of varying intensities awakening the body and senses, boosting circulation as well as strengthening the body with a focus on the core, co-ordination & stability.

I teach body and self awareness practices through movement.

☯️ a yin yoga practice or mindful movement, with the sound of the ocean, to begin to slow down as the sun sets in the background readying the body for the calm of night. Alonso will take the Yin Yoga practise and I will take the mindful movement, alternating throughout your stay.

I will also take a yoga massage workshop to teach some basic techniques as well as key points to help with some common aches & pains which you’ll greatly benefit from & be able to use on your friends and family! "If you touch one thing with deep awareness you touch everything" Thich Nhat Hanh

You will spend two of the nights near the Safari on the beach! A magical sky, crisp, clean air & the beach deserted except for us 🙌🏽 We will have a Guided Safari Tour of the Yala National Park where you will see leopards, elephants, deer as well as other wildlife!

The first 5 nights accomodation will be in a beautiful villa on the beach near the city of Galle in South Western Province so if you are a surfer bring your board! there is a pool, well appointed rooms and lots of space to reflect or connect! All of the 7 rooms are double or twins. You have an option, if you prefer, to have a double room to yourself, please contact me to discuss the rate. There are 4 bathrooms to share.

The other 3 nights will be in an incredible beach Chalet near Yala National Park in the South. The Chalet is mesmerising and it’s as if it’s in the Park itself. We will have so much privacy and space! There are 3 double rooms and one dorm for 8. The dorm is on the second floor and overlooks the natural surrounds with ocean views as well!

To get to the retreat on the first day please notify me of your ETA at Bandaranaike Int. Airport on Saturday 24/11. There will be a car leaving at 2pm in the afternoon passing the Colombo pick up point at 3pm. If you’re already in Sri Lanka and staying in Colombo you will be collected from Maharagama. Please contact me so we can arrange your collection!

My greatest desire is to inspire, share my knowledge and facilitate self awareness. I was born and raised in rural Zimbabwe moving to Australia when I was 17 with my brother. It took me a few years to realise who I am after trying to be so many things. Discovering myself is my greatest achievement and I want to share some of the things I’ve learned along the way.
