Yoga Therapeutics and Ayurveda Ulpotha Retreat in Sri Lanka

It's a secluded hideaway where you live in elegant simplicity, close to nature, in adobe houses nestling among flowers and trees, swim in a lake half-smothered in tiny water lilies, and eat delicious food lounging on cushions.

"Magical, mystical and Melissa are three happy things that come to mind when I think back to my week in Ulpotha. It was a transformative experience filled with lots of sweet yoga, acro playtime and newly forged friendships in the most breath taking of surroundings. It is, by far, the best yoga retreat I’ve attended."

Twice daily yoga classes with Melissa will be in a big, breezy, open-sided, building with a palm leaf roof, or in the dappled shade beneath the trailing aerial roots of a huge banyan tree. Afterward, enjoy dawn or sunset walks in the surrounding hills.

"I danced through the Winter Solstice in a newly found freedom and lightness of heart, all thanks to you. Sometimes it seems amazing that we find ourselves in exactly the right place at the right moment in time. Ulpotha was such a lovely and unexpected experience for me, so enhanced by the setting of bright forest and rice field, soft waters and gorgeous flowers everywhere. It is a magical place filled with very special people. When I show my photos, my own family is delighted and friends are stunned, saying "Is that really you??!" and now they all want to be part of that flying life also. Such fabulous yoga sessions with Melissa guiding us through, and such beautiful companions to practice and play with.” -Allie
