Yoga and surf.

Your personalized yoga & surf retreat

We like to think of it as build your own yoga surf retreat – and we’ll help make it all happen for you, right here at Talalla House.

The Yoga Studio in Talalla House

Located on the first floor of the house, the yoga studio is surrounded by shady palm trees and opens up to a blissful view of Talalla Beach. Here you can stretch out for your daily practice in peaceful solitude or join a private yoga class, which can be scheduled for your preferred time.

With a 40 m2 (430 ft2 ) surface area, up to 16 persons with mats & blocks, or up to 25 without mats can comfortably practice in the open air studio. The space is used for intimate workshops, yoga classes, or meditation, as well as private practice. Two ceiling fans and a pleasant ocean breeze maintain a comfortable temperature, even on extra hot days. The walls are decorated a calming green, and our pebble-washed floor gives you a strong grip on the surface. Attached is a bathroom, and the nearby kitchen provides fresh tea and juices to stay well-hydrated. For some ambience, you can stream music from your smartphone or laptop on the wireless, portable sound system.

Talalla House offers private yoga lessons, meditation, and Ayurvedic treatments for our guests.

Surfing the South Coast of Sri Lanka

One of the attractions of surfing the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka is the variety of breaks, most of them within a 10 to 30 minute drive from Talalla House. Suitable for beginners, longboarders, and intermediate surfers and with enough A-frames and shallow reefs to keep experts happy too. The official surf season on the South Coast is from the end of October to early April. But the low season, April to October, is actually the time of year that brings the most consistent swells; it is the onshore winds that can be a problem during this time. Get out in the morning for the best chance of catching offshore winds. East of Talalla there are a number of secret, wind protected beaches and points perfect for this time a year.

Talalla House can assist with surfboard rentals, English-speaking surf instructors, and transportation to the various points.
