Lanka Yoga 2023-Dean Raphael-342.jpg

MEDITATION MADE EASY

AN EFFORTLESS & TRANSFORMATIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE MODERN MIND

This retreat will change your life.

Your heart will open, your body will reset, your mind will expand.

You will come away wiser, revitalized and more connected to yourself.

You will be armed with powerful tools and life affirming insights that will bring freedom, clarity and resilience to your life.

 

There are a lot of people who are interested in meditation… (well, they’re interested in getting some peace and quiet in their minds)... 

They’ve downloaded an app, they’ve committed to 10 minutes of mindfulness a day, they’ve gone to drop-in classes and then life takes over and not much changes on a sustainable level. 

 

There might be some instant relief, but then once again, they find themselves responding to life’s demands with the same level of stress, anxiety and angst. 

 

If this sounds relatable - and you’re craving that deep restoration that your body and mind doesn’t seem to be getting from a simple meditation course - this retreat has been designed for you.

You need time and space to go deep and that’s exactly what we’ll do on this retreat. 
 

In this immersive getaway in a stunning lakeside villa, as you take in the lush green vista surrounding Koggala Lake, you will dissolve years of accumulated stress in just seven days. 

This week-long immersion program is aimed at rejuvenating your body-mind and expanding your consciousness through the ancient practice of Rounding.

This technique allows us to access the depths of our awareness, release layers of tension and fatigue from the nervous system and provide a sense of peace and stillness that allows us to adapt to life's demands more easily.

Incredibly - the experience doesn't end on the final day of retreat. 
You will leave INDEPENDENT in these life-changing practices so you can take these potent tools home with you.

Plus, if community and accountability is your thing, you'll have ongoing access to free weekly group meditation classes.

What is Rounding?

Rounding is a profoundly potent practice that includes gentle and repetitive yoga poses, breathwork, meditation and resting (shavasana) that supercharges stress release and healing.

It is deeply restorative, nurturing, blissful and easy to do. 

 

When this technique is practiced in a loop over successive days, your inner world clears of the junk that's weighing you down.

The nervous system purges old, redundant patterning, allowing you to connect with your truest self.

ON A LAKE IN A
L I T T L E - KNOWN
VI L LAGE OF
DUWAMALALAGAMA.

Located on Sri Lanka's south coast, the Galle area is known for its diverse ecosystem, from rainforests and mangrove swamps to vast beaches and rocky cliffs.

Wake up to uninterrupted views of the stunning Koggala Lake from every room. You'll be surrounded by greenery and shimmering blue water, and will at times spot wildlife, like crocodiles, sea eagles, and other animals that call the area home. It's like living in a national park!

The venue itself is one of a kind. Located on the water’s edge, this is a calm alternative to the sometimes hectic nature of the beachside options.
 

Enjoy the entire venue just for our group, with open plan living, nooks and crannies, places to do a solo Round, gardens, a substantial vegetable garden and more.

What Participants Are Saying...

"I felt a shift in my coping mechanisms.

Before I was just coping and now I feel like I can really live."

"I feel like this has been a total reset for my system".

"It really showed me that there are ways to quiet the mind down that aren't escapes".

"This technique of meditation is really powerful and really simple. Tracy makes it really easy."

"This has been such a phenomenal experience and I almost feel like time has stopped".

"It'll change your life".

What is a Satsang?

In Sanskrit, “satsang” means a sacred gathering to sit, or simply BE, in Truth. 

 

We will gather in circle and get cosy as we dive into Vedic wisdom to nourish our minds and hearts.

 

It is also a time when Tracy will devote special time to transform how you think about the world and yourself.

What's on the menu?

We serve a delicious chef-designed vegan menu that utilizes as many local and home-grown ingredients as possible.

Food is Sri Lankan fusion, as the retreat venue's belief is that you should eat the food of where you are.

The kitchen is an open plan in the villa’s main living area, meaning our cooks are on display as they prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Michelin chef Elspeth Humm designed the menu and trained the kitchen
staff.  The health-focused menu
contains as much as it can from the garden.

 

If you have dietary preferences let me know, and the staff can easily make adjustments to the menu for you.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

IMG_4190_edited.jpg

I love that it was a full package and every detail was thought of - disconnecting with beautiful desert scenery and cozy facilities, delicious healthy food, a method that aids the body to de-excite, meditation and evening convos around a fire for the mind. Being surrounded by such special humans filled my cup. Your heartfelt massages and intuitive touch during shavasana are wonderful.

I left with a kind of afterglow, a sort of peacefulness like I was slightly separated from the world and kind of blissy.

IMG_4194.heic

Tracy is a very special human being who leads retreats with her whole heart and so much grace. She has endless patience and believes in everyone who shows up. The combination of being in beautiful facilities with delicious healthy food, and a unique, easy and cozy method where the body is an integral part of the process leave profound effects on the mind, body and soul.
