Rejuvenate your Soul

March 11 - 18, 2025
Yoga and Meditation Retreat - Talalla Retreat

YOUR YOGA TEACHER GUIDE IN SRI LANKA

Hello, I'm Nicola, and I'll be your guide for yoga and meditation during this retreat. Let me share a bit about myself: My journey with yoga began in 2001, and since then, it has become not just a practice but a way of life for me. Before motherhood, I embarked on adventures across the globe, immersing myself in different cultures and teachings.

 

Visiting tropical countries, feeling the warm breeze on my skin, each journey felt like a rebirth, connecting me deeply with the fauna and surrounding environment, exposing me to a different way of life. These experiences instilled in me a profound connection with the earth, grounding me in the elements and fostering a sense of belonging wherever I traveled.

 

Now, with over 20 years of experience studying and teaching yoga in Finland and Spain, I'm eager to share my knowledge with the world. Alongside Nataša and Sadun, we're thrilled to accompany you on an unforgettable journey, where you'll have the opportunity to rejuvenate your soul and fall in love with the enchanting beauty of this island paradise.

 

During our time together at the luxurious Talalla Retreat Center, I'll lead you through daily Purna Yoga and Meditation classes. Together, we'll explore what it truly means to be grounded, forging a deep connection with the elements and building focus amidst the lush surroundings. This experience will not only nourish your individual practice but also foster a sense of community, sparking new friendships and meaningful interactions with others.

 

Prepare for an out-of-the-box experience, 9,216 km away from home, as we embark on a journey spanning continents. From the vibrant culture to the tantalizing cuisine and warm weather, every aspect of this journey promises to be a rich and transformative experience.

Hi, I'm Nicola, I will be your yoga and meditation guide during the retreat. A little bit about me: I live and breath yoga since 2001. Before I had my children I traveled the world year after year. Now I'd like to take my 20+ experience of teaching yoga in Finland and Spain out in to the world. Together with Nataša and Sadun we will take you on an unforgettable trip where you get to rejuevenate your soul and fall in love with this beautful island. With me you will get to experience daily Purna yoga and meditation classes at the luxurious Talalla resort and find out what it means to truly rejuvenate. More: www.purnayoga.fi/our-teachers

Hi, I'm Nataša, I will be your contact point when it comes to travelling Sri Lanka. About me, I am a Slovene who has been for the last 30 years living in Finland. I practice yoga since 1999, and for the last 4 years in Purna Yoga Helsinki. I have studied Ayurveda and learned something about the philosophy behind yoga. In 2017 I visited Sri Lanka for the first time and fell in love with the country, its people, culture and stunning landscapes including rich variety of flora and fauna. After that, I spent two longer times in Sri Lanka, first as a volunteer working in an afternoon school and next, teaching yoga in a hotel in Hikkaduwa. The cultural atmosphere in Sri Lanka is just ideal for a yoga retreat! One can feel it in Sri Lankan people, who live in their everyday life, the traditions and the ideals of yoga and Ayurveda, the ancient science of life. By organising this trip together with Nicola and Sadun, I hope to be able to convey at least a small part of the wisdom this beautiful tropical island has to offer. I will be your cultural translator through the retreat and tour times. Welcome to join us on this unforgettable adventure of a life time!
