What style of yoga is it? This will vary with each teacher but generally we teach a combination of Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga we also teach restorative and Yin Yoga.
What level of yogi do you need to be? All levels are welcome we give variations to suit all students. If you are very experienced or very new to yoga we also offer private lessons.
I am pregnant, can I join? Yes, as long as you are past your first trimester. If you had a regular practice before becoming pregnant either morning or afternoon classes are suitable if you are new to yoga since being pregnant the afternoon classes will be more suitable, as they are slower. Make sure to communicate with the teacher before the class so we can give variations to suit you and keep you safe.
I have an injury, can I join? Yes but depending on the injury. It is best to communicate with the teacher prior to booking.
I can’t make your dates, can you be flexible with dates? Our retreat dates will usually stay the same however if you would like to come one day early and leave one day early for example you are welcome to join the group class as part of the retreat package price however no morning meditation and pranayama will be conducted. This will also have to fit in with Talalla Retreat accommodation availability.
Do you do a week-long meditation retreat? This can be arranged if sufficient notice is given, subject to Talalla retreat availability.
If I join the casual classes as well, is there an extra charge? The retreat yoga sessions are group classes so the all Talalla guests are welcome to join, they run twice a day 7:30am and 4:30pm. If you are booked in for a retreat these classes are part of your package price.
Does the yoga during the week follow a set pattern i.e. alignment day 1, then balance day 2 etc? This depends on the group and the teacher, if there is a request for this structure than we are happy run the retreat in this way.
I’ve never done yoga before, can I join? Yes.
I am a yoga teacher at home, is this right for me? As you know a teacher never stops learning so I am sure you will enjoy the retreat however it is important that you realise all level of students join these retreats.
I am a yoga teacher, can I bring my own group to practice during the retreat? This would depend entirely on Talalla Retreat availability as well as the teacher hosting the retreat and the number of guests booked into the Talalla yoga retreat outside your group.
Whats the best time of year to practice yoga? Sri Lanka is warm all year round and our Shala is beautifully positioned so you can enjoy the elements. Any time of year is ideal here…
How far in advance do I need to book? It is better to book sooner rather than later to secure your spot!
How do I book? Via the website is ideal this way you can specify that you are here for the Yoga Retreat.
Whats the difference between the retreat and casual classes? Casual classes run twice a day as do retreat classes however if you join the retreat you also have daily meditation and pranayama classes and two afternoon workshops, one massage, airport transfers and a package price for food and accommodation. The retreats are very complete and it is nice working with an intimate group for the week.
