Location

Exhale Yoga Retreats is always looking for possible new retreat locations. We spend time in places of interest, connect with the local communities and feel out the vibe. We want to make sure our retreaters feel secure knowing that we have been there before, and trust that we can offer them the best adventure yoga retreat possible.

With our dream come true of collaborating with MC YOGI and Amanda Giacomini, we knew our next destination had to be special. During a recent visit to Sri Lanka we were captivated by its beauty and knew it would be the superb spot for this retreat!

Sri Lanka’s diverse landscapes are spectacular – it has everything from rainforests to arid plains, highlands, palm tree forests, and sandy beaches. Rich in history, Sri Lanka is renowned for its ancient Buddhist ruins. The local communities are bustling with life and enriching culture; the rest of the world is just beginning to discover the endless beauty of Sri Lanka and now is the best time to discover it with us!

Accommodation

Underneath the Mango Tree, a stunning boutique hotel in south Sri Lanka will be your home for 12 nights and 11 magical days. Complete with a full Ayurvedic Spa, 25m swimming pool and a private beautiful beach. Underneath the Mango Tree also includes locally sourced meals, providing an authentic dining experience.

Holistic treatments

Ayurveda-Spa 

The ancient Indians have realized already 5000 years ago what matters! The harmony of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects is crucial for your health and well-being.

The Ayurveda is a method which focuses on the human being as a whole, not the disease in particular. The UTMT wellness hotel in Sri Lanka offers facilities for professional guidance in terms of traditional Ayurvedic therapy. The treatments are individually tailored by our professional practitioners. You can select a package to suit your needs.

Things to do

Buddhist Temples 

Sri Lanka is a beautiful tropical paradise where locals have to follow the Buddhist religion throughout the ages. With over two millennia of history in Buddhism, Sri Lanka is what one would call a ‘Buddhist’s Heaven’. Many of the Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka are thousands of years old but their ruins still contain a sense of mystery and magic to those who visit.

All Buddhist sites in Sri Lanka are venerated by Buddhists and respected by the other minor religious sects that make the island their home.

There are multiple Buddhist temples within a 2hr radius of UTMT and tours can be arranged to visit these stunning sites.


Surf 

Uncrowded line-ups, consistent swells, inviting turquoise waters and stunning backdrops make up the surf spots in Sri Lanka. With a verity of beach and reef breaks, there is something for all levels. We have surfed some hidden gems along the South Coast of Sri Lanka and can arrange surf lessons and guide. Check out Magic Seaweed for swell reports.


Sri Lanka's Wildlife 

Brimming with an abundance of beautiful creatures from free roaming Elephants, rambunctious monkeys and majestic blue whales. We can set up an adventure for you to see the unspoiled nature, the harmony of the animal world in freedom, a wildlife experience as it should be.

Instructors

MC YOGI

MC YOGI grew up painting graffiti & listening to hip hop music. At age fourteen, inspired by artists like the Beastie Boys & Run DMC he began writing his own raps and free styling for friends at house parties. MC Yogi spent most of his high school years at a group home for at-risk youth. During those turbulent years, Hip Hop culture provided both a soundtrack and a creative outlet.

Then at age eighteen, he discovered yoga. On a whim, he joined his father for a meditation intensive with a famous spiritual teacher from India. Deeply moved by this powerful experience, he devoted himself to learning everything he could about the ancient discipline. He continues to study the physical forms of yoga, as well as meditation, philosophy, and devotional chanting.
