Restore your body, mind & Soul through
yoga & art


You will experience a combination of ART THERAPEUTIC and COACHING METHODES
guided by Roxana (art therapist) and André (mediator). An creative approach that lets you dive deep into your process of personal growth. We often don’t have the right words to articulate what we are feeling. So let’s talk about our art work instead, it’s much easier. We want you to come back home with a profound sense of contentment, clarity and serenity which will be accessible to you even in difficult circumstances. 


It will be clear to you what the source of your strength is and where to look when you need inspiration, support or answers to tough questions.
Choosing your next step and approaching your goals/projects/desires and difficulties will become much easier and simpler for you.


Sulochana is a firm believer in the wholesomeness of yoga that equips you to work towards “Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha”, mastering to create stillness of the mind through yoga. She believes in yoga as a lifestyle.
Functional mobility, breath focused vinyasa style movements, and strength-based asana practice, pranayama, and meditation underpin the key elements of Sulochana’s yoga practice as well as teaching.
On the retreat, you will be able to experience all these key elements irrespective of where you are with your yoga practice.
Sulochana will also share with you how to develop a home-based, injury-free practice which will prepare you to handle the stresses and strains of daily life.

How will the group look like?

This will be a closed group that stays together for the five days guided by Roxana, André and Sulo. 
The retreat space is for the sole use of our group. 
The retreat group size is limited to 20 people. 
To focus better on our inner self we practice silence until after breakfast.
There will be a lot of time to talk mindfully about the experience that you make.

This is a safe space. So be who you are!

Garden fresh Food

Our cook is an expert at a wide variety of Sri Lankan and vegetarian western dishes. The flavour of the southern coast predominates in the Sri Lankan food, and there is a distinct ‘Sri Lankan touch’ to the western dishes. In addition to vegetables and fruits, our home garden will give you a variety of fresh ‘green leaves’ that have now become all but inaccessible to the urban Sri Lankan. If you see Nelson wandering around with a basket, join him and pick your meal!
