Come join me for a 6-night/5-day Body, Mind & Spirit Yoga retreat at the beautiful Niyagama House nestled at the highest point in a wonderful tea plantation in Southern Sri Lanka.

I have craving for dreaming... For special memories...To feel support the and inspiration.

Every now and again, I need to really step out, back into total freedom, into my own power and loving sense of self. Sri Lanka is the perfect place to spend time in contemplative practice...Yoga, Meditation, walks in nature. ..Journaling.

So!... My creation - the Leap to Lanka Yoga Retreat - is now enrolling. And I'd love you to be there! With me to guide you and a group of incredible yogis and friends to support you, you’re in for a life-changing week. I can’t wait to share my version of paradise with you. The early bird pricing starts now...

This is a unique opportunity for you to listen to yoga stories, write a new chapter in your own, and bathe in soothing Hatha and Yin Yoga practices every day... and if that's not enough, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the beauty and culture of southern Sri Lanka.

The Lodging

Opened by German architect and yoga teacher Elke de Silva and her Sri Lankan husband Chaminda, Niyagama House has seven generous rooms are equipped with high quality furniture and luxurious bathrooms. From every room you have a wonderful view into nature. 

It is located nine kilometers inland from the coastal city of Galle and the historic, charming Galle Fort and in 25 minutes you will reach the southern beaches of the Indian Ocean. 


Treatments & Therapies

In the little 'Niya Spa' you can spoil yourself with a traditional ayurvedic oil massage or other wonderful treatments. Relax by the pool with a view into the surrounding rainforest or take part in a guided tour of the plantation.

Enjoy Niyagama's original and light Sri Lankan cuisine, which is still strongly influenced by the ancient Ayurvedic knowledge about healthy eating.

The daily changing menu offers many vegetarian options, seafood, fish, poultry and lamb as well as some Western dishes and "Greetings" from other Asian countries.

Sit back, relax, read and recline next to the pool or in the café and surrender to culinary bliss.
