About this trip

Move forward through Sri Lanka on one of the most scenic train rides in the world.  By directing our focus and intention to move forward we leave behind habits and thought patterns that do not serve our current selves; we shed worn out ideas that no longer fit us; we open our minds and bodies to the present moment where we can find an endless flow of guidance to carry us into the future. 

The journey will begin in Colombo where we will board a morning train to Kandy.  We will stay two nights in bold surroundings as we prepare our minds for the move ahead with meditation and yoga flows.  We will leave Kandy behind and begin the scenic train ride to Ella through lush landscapes, tea fields, and winding pathways.  Here we will meditate as we physically move forward into the heart of Sri Lanka where mountains and nature awaits to restore our mind, body, and soul.  We will end with three nights in the old Dutch city of, Galle, with time to explore, lay by the sea, and celebrate our journey forward. 

Shared Spaces

This trip is not only about moving forward but also connection.  All of the rooms have been arranged and are ideal for sharing.  Some of our lodging will include rooms with single beds while others will include rooms with beds for sharing.  This trip is perfect for friends and/or family.  If you would like to have your own room at each location please reach out to the retreat organizer for separate pricing and availability.

The Yoga Retreat to Sri Lanka with Royal Pigeon Yoga was fantastic. The trip was extraordinarily well planned and executed. Jaclynn is amazing. I highly recommend Royal Pigeon Yoga!
Fabulous experience! The yoga instruction was superb. Loved that all the sessions were different. Accomodations at Casa Blue were fabulous. It was a well organized retreat with enough free time and flexibility in the schedule for all. Definitely a 5 star experience all around.
