Sri Lanka Iyengar Yoga Retreat 2019
16 – 23 July
with Kellie Brett
A 7-night retreat on the southern coast of Sri Lanka
I’m so pleased to be offering a 2019 Iyengar Yoga Retreat. This year the venue is Tallala Retreat which is on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, 168 kms from Colombo. It sits on a pristine, unspoilt beach, still hidden from tourists and travellers and only visited by the local fisherman during their daily catch. Facilities include a 20m freshwater lap pool, Ayurvedic spa and a gourmet open-air restaurant serving fresh organic meals.
Please consider joining us. Give yourself the opportunity to step away from the routine of daily to do, and steep in daily yoga practice, contemplation and gratitude. Setting intentions and space to re-emerge and return open, nourished and refreshed.
Iyengar students and other yoga practitioners are welcome to attend. New students who are local to my studio in Alfred Cove, or The North Perth Yoga Room are welcome to attend a casual yoga class at no cost prior to booking. See my yoga class timetable here: http://www.myohealth.com.au/classes
Arrive to check in on Tuesday 16th July, in time for a restorative class at 4:30pm and a group meal from 7pm. Our retreat will complete on Tuesday 23rd July with a morning practice from 6 – 8am.
The morning classes start with a guided meditation followed by a 2 hour yoga asana class. Then we get together again later most afternoons for 1 1/2 hours of restorative & pranayama practice. Friday afternoon is free, and the Sunday class will be a workshop from 8 – 11am allowing a leisurely afternoon. There will be time to discuss your home practice or any other aspect of your asana practice and yoga study during the week. Props are available, however bringing your own mat is ideal.
Sri Lanka is a cultural paradise. There are many places of interest to visit, you could take a cooking class or learn to surf… or spend the free time during the days and evenings relaxing in the company of like minds.

What others have had to say:
Hi Kellie - loved it all! The yoga practices each day led by you, the people attending, the venue & other activities. Mark me down for next year! As I said you are a fab teacher & it was a special experience for me & I’m sure others. AM
It was such a pleasure meeting you, participating in your classes, and just getting to experience something so different from my normal.
You taught me that doing something is good, but doing something with guidance can be so much more rewarding.
My only regret is that I was sick by the time I got to Thailand, which dampened my desire to be social. The group of yoga ladies assembled was fantastic! I enjoyed the participation and was wowed by their abilities.
You are truly excellent at what you do and your compassionate spirit was evident during the entire event. AH
New and returning students:
If you’re in Perth or Margaret River (on 23/24 March) please try a class with me before you commit.
