Teachers Name: Georgia Marnham
Date/Time: 01/03/2020-15/03/2020 - All Day

You are welcome to come for one or two weeks. There will be two Iyengar classes each day and ayurvedic treatments available.
Ulpotha is highly regarded and considered one of the most special and beautiful retreat centres in the world (Frequently ranked in the top ten yoga retreats worldwide).
Rebuilt on the layout of a deserted traditional village, Ulpotha covers a 20 acre site situated in the jungle heartland of Old Ceylon. Ulpotha literally translates as water source, referring to the springs feeding the system of five ancient reservoirs. The property is a beautiful private hideaway open to guests for part of the year; a place of total peace, where you can experience the warm, generous and gentle hospitality Sri Lankans love to offer. In this sense, Ulpotha is not a hotel and does not aspire to be one. The villagers who live and work there are part and parcel of the experience enjoyed by guests. Though they have deliberately not been given any training in any aspect of hotel-type service, they are gracious, hospitable and a lot of fun. Ulpotha is largely run by the villagers themselves.
The bio-diversity of Ulpotha is extraordinary, with flora, fauna and bird life of dazzling variety. Animal life is equally varied, with even wild (but gentle) elephants visiting from time to time. Guests who come to Ulpotha will find a natural sanctuary of exceptional beauty, where the main activity is simply relaxing in its remarkable atmosphere of peace and calm while indulging in feasts of exquisite organic cuisine. However for those more purposeful in nature, Yoga and Ayurveda therapies are available, as are excursions to surrounding sites of archeological interest. The yoga classes in the first two weeks of March 2020 will be led by Georgia, while the Ayurveda is administered by an acclaimed resident doctor.
