SRI LANKA LUXURY YOGA AND SPA BREAK
at Jim’s Farm Villas
15th May – 25th May 2020
I am delighted to offer you an amazing, luxury 10-day Yoga and Ayurvedic Spa Break on an organic spice farm in the lush heart of Sri Lanka for £950 per person, including four visits to local major Cultural Triangle sites.
Whether you are a Yoga beginner, wanting to discover the Iyengar system or a more seasoned Yoga student, looking to deepen your practice, this is the holiday to do it on! The retreat will give you the space to step away from your regular lifestyle and let you focus on enriching, relaxing and recharging yourself, nourished by Sri Lankan hospitality, culture and foods and a yoga practice that you will love.
You will be invited to attend two yoga classes each day where we will practice and explore familiar and more challenging asanas and pranayama which will develop flexibility, strength and will in body, mind and spirit. You will be guided in a safe, sequenced, supportive and sensitive way. The classes will be held in the shaded Yoga Pavilion, with breath-taking views, surrounded by nature.
I have been studying Iyengar Yoga for nearly 20 years and teaching full time for the past 5 years. I believe my passion and dedication to the practice is reflected in my teaching and continued study with advanced teachers from Europe, USA and at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India, where I attend the annual convention each December and in November of this year will spend a month studying with the Iyengars and senior Indian teachers. I believe I articulate well what I learn through my study and practice with joy and enthusiasm.
As part of your holiday you will be offered 2 hours of free Spa treatments of your choice from Jim,s Farm Villas in-house Ayurvedic Doctor.
This may be your first visit to Sri Lanka so the inclusion of 4 wonderful day trips to the major local Cultural Triangle sites as part of your programme will make this a truely memorable holiday.
