Talalla Retreat

7 NIGHTS IN SRI LANKA

TALALLA RETREAT

OCTOBER 10th - 17th 2019


Join Donna this October for a 7 night retreat in pure serenity, staying at the picturesque seaside retreat known simply as Talalla. Spend each morning rising with the sun, against a backdrop of the sea, lush palms and the fragrant aromas of the tropics. We’ll start with Vinyasa to flow fluidly in preparation for some hang time in the waves, just meters away at the most clear turquoise beaches in Sri Lanka, followed by relaxation or whatever you choose to do with your resetting time away from the chaos of life! This is your time to recharge and reinvigorate in one of the most serene and visually beautiful places on Earth!

A typical day will start with a vinyasa yoga class to limber up then a filling tropical breakfast for nourishment to start your day! If you’re surfing, you’re out of the waves with the coach and if you’re relaxing you might be by the pool with a book! We meet around mid day for lunch then your afternoon could include a shopping expedition, a spa treatment or maybe a dip in the ocean nearby. A relaxing yoga session later in the afternoon will precede our delicious Sri Lankan feast, with a selection of mouth watering curries and healthy salads.

These 7 days in luscious Lanka are a recharge, a way to help you de-stress and combine the benefits of yoga and fitness for an even greater sense of wellness and happiness!

  • Day trip to Galle Fort

FLIGHTS: Colombo in Sri Lanka is an approx 4 hour flight from Singapore with Sri Lanka Air. You can fly in late, arrive around 9pm and stay at DRIFT HOSTEL (highly recommend - more of a POSHTEL than a HOSTEL!) for around $60US single room. Car transport will pick up the next day. Or arrive during the day in Colombo and car will pick up from Airport.

You can also travel by rail (also highly recommend this experience!) and stop along the way making your way to Talalla. I hightly recommend the train to Galle Fort (Colombo - Galle is around $5au in 2nd class - just go to the station and buy your ticket. Be prepared to stand for a lot of the 2.5-3hour trip but its a very worthwhile experience!). You might then like to stay the night somewhere in the many cute art deco hotels/accommodations inside the Fort walls, then travel by car or rail to Talalla the next day. The train travels mostly along the coastline so there’s sea views on one side and jungle on the other. Truly magic! NOTE: The retreat starts on a THURSDAY with a welcome dinner and ends on a THURSDAY with Yoga and Breakfast.

MY SRI LANKA

Life in Lanka is a delicious mix of fragrant curries, hustling little villages, laid back culture, lush rainforest and stunning coastlines, with fun waves for every ability of surfer — this is the beautiful Sri Lanka I’ve come to know and love. The people are so friendly and you’ll swoon over the tropical landscapes, dotted with palms and greenery. The beaches are picture postcards and we’ll take in the beauty of their sunsets against the merging rainforest and ocean. Village life is abundant with fresh local produce, hand made crafts and the smells of street food. Galle Fort is well worth a day trip on the old open air trains, to stock up on crystals, tea, silks or just take in the amazing Art Deco architecture and history.

I’ve been wanting to head back for a retreat to Lanka for a long time so this is your chance to immerse yourself in a week long adventure with me, diving into the endless array of yoga branches, deepening your connection to your inner world and recharging your energy. The week will end with you feeling more spacious, uplifted and in tune with yourself and nature and with a more positive outlook to your wonderful life. I hope you can join me. Donna x
