Our purposely created site offers guests the chance to escape, relax, immerse yourself in the silence of nature.

We are located a few minutes inland from Ahangama a wide stretched village on Sri Lanka’s Southern ProvinceCoastline with beautiful beaches and some of the best surf spots on the island.

Ahangama is still a“secret” destination a place to relax and unwind away from the crowds.

We’re about 30 minutes from the historical town of Galle, colonial fort town.

With the new highway it’s about 2hours from Colombo airport.

Nirbana

Aerial Yoga

Our Aerial/Trapeze Yoga will take place on a private, open-air, shaded Yoga Shala overlooking the jungle surrounded by the sound of the wildlife.

Our morning practice will start each day with Pranayama and meditation easing then into our aerial yoga practice.

Aerial yoga uses a silk hammock that’s safely suspended from the ceiling as a prop to support you through the various poses. It has multiple benefits including increased strength and flexibility. It’s also lots of fun and accessible to all abilities and ages.

Aerial Yoga

Trapeze Yoga

Using the Trapeze, you get the benefits of both normal yoga and inversion therapy. The combination of exercises is literally endless as the Trapeze features three rubber-grip handles to accommodate any yoga position. It can also be used in a similar fashion to a TRX and for stretching and balancing exercises.

More benefits of the Trapeze are that you can decompress your spine and relieve pressure on those delicate disks between your vertebrae, increasing blood flow, oxygen to your brain and other vital organs while detoxing your lymphatic system.

Beyond the health benefits, the inversion Trapeze also assists you in deeper positions such as back bends, helping build a strong core and elongating your muscles at

the same time.

We will guide and challenge you at a level suitable to your needs. Treating you with care and respect, there will be assisted hands on adjustments to help you deepen your practice and correct alignment.

Trapeze Yoga

Sup Yoga and Sup Tours

Dewata to Jungle Beach.

A paddle across Dewata Bay to the beautiful Jungle Beach where we will chill, swim, snorkel. An extra paddle along to check out the shipwreck, wind permitting. We will make a small climb up to visit the Japanese Peace Pagoda. Then food and drink at Jungle Beach before paddling back.

Dewata Beach

Full Moon Sup Ceremony.

The evening of the full moon to share in the Luna energies. Each moon holds a different energetic potential that will provide the narrative for intention setting and release.

These SUP Yoga and meditation ceremonies are a perfect way to cleanse the mind and release from unwanted attachments ready to welcome in the new rhythms. The event will be a mindful way to approach a deeper process of self-realisation and connection with nature through the practice of yoga.

The events will start with some celebratory face painting and intention setting.

Enjoying the meditation of the river paddle by firelight, we proceed to the point of the river where the waterway divides. Symbolic of the choice we make along our path.

Under the moonlight we will connect our minds and bodies in unity through some light yoga asana that will focus on the centring of being, the core of the physical self and the grounding of emotional energy. Following the asana, you are invited to sit in vigil to your own intentions.

We will then meander back along the waterway to the shala, where we will be greeted with some tasty treats refreshing coconuts and some beautiful live music. This is a powerful and moving experience for anyone looking for something unique.

Full Moon Sup Ceremony

Sup Surfing

Stand up paddle surfing is an offshoot of surfing that originated in Hawaii. Unlike traditional surfing where the rider sits until a wave comes, stand up paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water. The lesson will cover all the basics and is the perfect introduction to the sport.

Catch a wave and there will be no turning back! Learn ocean and wave safety, equipment orientation, etiquette on the water, the correct posture how to catch that wave, basic surf moves and much more.

Sup Surf Sri Lanka

 Sup Paddle around Duwa Island

A gentle paddle around Duwa Island in shallow water. Sit, kneel or stand on your stable SUP board and enjoy this relaxing evening paddle listening to the sounds of birds and spotting monkeys playing in the trees. Stopping mid-way at a local riverside Sri Lankan house for beer or coconut juice to enjoy the local hospitality. We will then paddle back as the sunsets over the river, often seeing the bats fly by overhead.

Sup Paddle

Sup Yoga

Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Yoga is a unique activity that combines a variety of yoga postures on the water.  The paddle board makes a comfortable yoga mat, and the extra balance required by being on the water intensifies the yoga routine, making it one of the best cores & balance workouts. It is easy to learn and great fun. We will paddle up the Duwa river to a beautiful spot for our Sup yoga lesson!

All excursions are suitable for beginners and more experienced paddlers.

Sup Yoga

The afternoon session will be designed around different workshops and trips, our special tips and tricks will allow you to achieve those Aerial/Trapeze poses and Sup experience you’ve been wanting to do!!

Time for you to ask questions, and of course lots of laughs!!

This retreat is not just for those, who already have a regular Aerial/Trapeze or Sup Yoga practice, but also for those who have just begun their yoga journey and wants to include this meditative and rejuvenate practice into his or her lives.

All the classes, workshops and trips are optional, this is your holiday, you are free to do as much or as little as your body and hearts desires.
