Tropical Sri Lanka Surf and Yoga Breaks!
The base for our tropical retreat is on the sea front, just south of the charming local town of Ahangama, hidden between the busier spots, Unawatuna and Mirrisa. Situated at Goviyapana at the South end of Ahangama, the accommodation overlooks Devil Rock with a classic left hander right outside. All rooms are sea facing with private balcony area. The restaurant serves up western or local breakfasts with fresh smoothies and lassies, Ceylon tea or Italian coffees. We have an extensive lunch/dinner menu whilst drinks and cocktails are served in the relaxed bar.
The vibe on the retreats is relaxed & friendly & many of our guests come alone to experience a healthy surf and yoga break & meet like minded people in the comfort of a hosted retreat.
A typical day starts with an early morning yoga session on the lagoon roof terrace before breakfast, which is served in our beach front restaurant. Here you will find a selection of tea, real coffee, fresh fruit, local or western breakfast to your choice. Once energised we hit the best beach for morning lessons with prevailing conditions including swell and wind direction. After lunch we are back surfing, with our instructors on hand to give you pointers or if you prefer you can relax in a hammock at the camp soaking up the rays or visit once of the many local attractions which include temples, tea plantation, the historical unesco Galle Fort, snake or turtle sanctuaries to name a few.
A sunset yoga session will stretch those muscles or sometimes a cold Lion beer watching the sun go down has the same relaxing effect for those with less energy.
We all get together for a dinner of mouth watering exquisite curries prepared with locally sourced ingredients or our famous weekly seafood bbq. After dinner our instructors will go over the days session in small groups so you can speed up your progress the next day. How you spend the rest of your evening is then up to you - chill with other guests over a cold beer or cocktail, watching a surf movie on the big screen, getting to grips with the famous local game karrom, catch up on emails with our free wifi or venture out and experience the local nightlife.
