The Retreater

Spring Break Sri Lanka

About The Retreat

This is NOT just another Surf & Yoga Retreat. With every retreat I create, I like to bring along tools for self-discovery, personal development and self-transformation. Besides, this retreat in Sri Lanka will also be a cultural immersion, where you get to experience the local life of this rich culture and explore everything this beautiful country has to offer. We will take a full day for a jungle Safari, where you can see wild animals in their natural habitat and hopefully get a feeling of the Sri Lankan way of life away from the beaches. The surf lessons will be our play time, but also a great moment to shut the mind up and be fully present. Surfing is a beautiful sport and a way of living. The deep connection with nature and pure joy you experience when taking a wave is very similar to the presence you would describe when meditating. For me, surfing and yoga are deeply connected and various ways and always a great combination in a retreat. Our daily Yoga practice is made of Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing) and Meditation. Besides our morning sessions we will also have other workshops and activities focused on other tools for self-discovery and personal development. Every practice and workshop is carefully thought of with a purpose, encouraging you to explore different parts of yourself that you didn't even know existed! It looks like we have a full schedule, but don't worry! We will also have plenty of time to take nature walks, go to the beach, explore the village nearby or simply have "me time". This is your retreat and you chose how you want to spend the time you have in between our group sessions. ​

This is my second retreat with Karol, I have been in The Conscious Living with her last year. This retreat brought together mindfulness, body awareness and overall good vibes! It was the perfect mixture of activities, surf and yoga. A gorgeous way to spend a week in an otherwise dark and cold winter at home. Be ready to make some friends and simply enjoy the good things in life!

The retreat was very well organised, the balance between activities was perfect and the location amazing! I loved the connection between surf, yoga, breathwork and pottery. The food was also prepared with much care and had a good mix of local and international flavours. Overall I felt that the retreat was a good balance between energising activities and meditation/personal development.

I loved every minute of the retreat. Karol made everyone feel extremely welcomed and it was obvious she put a lot of thought and effort into the organisation. It was 100% what I needed to recharge and reset from my stressful work. I am definitely coming back again!

This was my first retreat ever and it's been an incredible experience. It felt like there was a purpose on us being here together as a group and it was very easy to get along. A great mix of yoga and activities. The food was incredible and I leave feeling energised and more aware of myself and my thoughts. Karol is a brilliant teacher. Thank you!
