About this trip

Join us in idyllic Sri Lanka to immerse yourself in Yoga. Nurture the mind, body and soul, and experience the beauty of this amazing country and its people. The retreat will give you an opportunity to unwind, seek balance and build strength through active asana practice as well as slow and blissful restorative and yin classes.
Start your morning with an active 90-minute Vinyasa or Ashtanga practice before breakfast, and then relax by the pool, enjoy a massage, try your hand at surfing or head out to explore southern Sri Lanka. In the afternoon join us for a 60-minute workshop focusing on arm balances, partner poses or pranayama (breathing) techniques, followed by a 60-minute Restorative or Yin class to unwind and de-stress.
All levels of yoga practitioners are welcome! Plenty of guidance will be provided to ensure that your experience is a safe and positive one.
The retreat will be held at the beautiful Talalla Retreat, a beachfront eco-luxury boutique resort in the southern tip of Sri Lanka. If you love pristine beaches, stunning sunsets, lounging by the pool and drinking juice straight from coconuts then this is the perfect place to connect to your surroundings and delve into your yoga practice. Talalla Retreat’s beautiful deluxe villas feature an open-air ensuite bathroom and private balcony or deck area. The restaurant serves delicious meals using local and seasonal produce sourced fresh daily from local markets and fishermen.

Florence Shih
Florence’s yoga journey began in 2011, when she turned to yoga after sustaining injuries from years of playing netball and running, and also as a way to improve her overall mental and physical well-being; she now hopes to be able to share this way of seeking balance through yoga with others. Prior to completing her teacher training, Florence led communications and public relations functions for a number of technology companies. Florence’s teaching philosophy is centered on communicating how to practice alignment-based yoga to achieve health benefits, as well as cultivate awareness in action, thought and speech. Through conscious sequencing and an emphasis on linking movement with breath, Florence’s classes will build strength, flexibility and stability and offer something to students of every level. She firmly believes that everybody’s yoga journey is unique, and focuses strongly on encouraging students to be mindful of self care, while simultaneously “playing the edge” (where ever that may be on any given day).
