Energy + Emotional Healing

We get to you know you a little prior to your arrival at Talalla, so that we can tailor the retreat to your needs. As part of your week with us we utilise and harness energy modalities such as Reiki to help guide you through any emotional blockages or stress. This is totally optional for guests but we encourage you to explore if and when you feel guided. Talalla is a safe and open space to explore your emotional body and feelings.

Yoga, Pilates + Boxilates/HIIT

Yoga is the perfect tool for both physical and mental renewal.

With our classes all containing components of asana (physical practice), pranayam (training of the breath) and meditation (practice of creating calm), you are sure to find something for you.

We have daily Vinyasa Group Classes – 7:30am and a Restorative Class 5:00pm in our open air yoga shala

Pilates is becoming hugely popular for it’s overall benefit to body function and movement. Using mindful movement, you will experience an increase in flexibility and mobility and get to know your body a little bit deeper.

We have daily Pilates and Boxilates (Boxing + Pilates for extra cardio!) from 6.45am and 6.30am in our beach and pool shalas.

Meditation & Pranayam

Often an intimidating or misunderstood technique, meditation is centered on learning the techniques for a clearer, calmer and more centered mind.

There are a variety of different meditation practices which exist, all having different foundations.

These play an important role in each of our retreats and whilst initially daunting, a simple and consistent practice is all that is required to start to see the benefits of this technique. During your retreat you will be guided through these techniques, and given the time and space to connect with your true and higher self.

Ayurvedic Consultation

Ayurveda can be directly translated as ‘the science of life’, this healing science which initially arose from India is slowly becoming mainstream in many Western countries. At Talalla we attempt to offer you some incite into the science of Ayurveda.

You can opt and choose to receive a consult with our resident Doctor of Ayurveda who will determine any imbalances which may be present.You will then be prescribed a series of practices and natural internal remedies. This retreat is not an Ayruveda retreat, but is available to provide you an insight into this ancient science and wisdom.

Refresh and cleanse yourself in the beautiful waters of the Indian Ocean. As part of your retreat you will be able to participate in a 3 hr surf lesson, where you will learn the joys of wave riding with our experienced and professional surf coaches.
