Best yoga centres in Sri Lanka
Yoga is another one of the ancient arts handed down through generations of practice and study. While present-day yoga is used as a fitness tool, the sages practiced yoga to maintain not just physical but also mental and spiritual health.
Yoga retreats will often feature Ayurveda healing as well. Such retreats can be found all over the country, set in a quiet environment overlooking either the sea or a forest. These retreats may sometimes be Eco lodges that are simple, functional, comfortable and elegant. In such retreats, you will be doing yoga classes as well as meditating, chanting and simple breathing exercices to recharge your energies.
Yoga and Ayurveda are steeped in mysticism but are in no way religious. This ancient knowledge was distributed with no restrictions for the benefit of mankind. So, if you are looking for a relaxed but exotic vacation, these retreats are ideal.
