Margarita Village Kalpitiya Kite School -Kitesurfing Sri Lanka-
Yoga in Kalpitiya
Kalpitiya is probably one the best destinations to do yoga in Sri Lanka. We welcome you to our morning yoga sessions with our Hatha instructor, Ingrid. We do yoga in Kalpitiya lagoon every morning before going kitesurfing (around 7 a.m.). Our yoga sessions are under request as Ingrid is not always in Kalpitiya. Contact us if you want to join our yoga sessions in Kalpitiya.
Why yoga in Kalpitiya?
Kalpitiya is one of the most peaceful regions of Sri Lanka surrounded by nature, peace and relaxation. It is a region mostly populated by fishermen and some tourists who drop by to enjoy kite sessions.
At the first ray of morning sun, Kalpitiya gives us the sounds of the birds and a gentle breeze.
Being able to do yoga in front of the lagoon, outdoors, provides us with a perfect balance and well-being to our body and mind.
Sharing your day to day with animals that live in freedom is a unique experience. Donkeys, cows, dogs, cats, goats, ducks ... they all enjoy the freedom that Mother Nature gives us in this region.
Complimenting yoga with kitesurfing is the best way to give our body and mind flexibility, balance and strength.
Early in the morning we prepare the body with simple and adapted asanas for our guests. Our Hatha instructor will adapt the practice every day to keep body and mind in balance.
The best time of the day to do yoga is in the morning before breakfast.
During one hour you will bring to your body and mind well-being and strength which is necessary for your kite classes.
Our yoga sessions take place at our Kite Center right by the lagoon. Whilst we are doing the session, you will enjoy privileged views in front of the lagoon, in the middle of nature and outdoors, accompanied by a soothing morning breeze.
When the wind allows us, after the kite session, we say goodbye to the day with a yoga exercise to stretch and relax muscles.
Practicing Surya Namaskar (sun salutation) revitalises all the muscles of the body and offers a complete stretch. The expansion and contraction of the muscles helps to redirect impure blood to the kidney and lungs. This is the best technique to relax the muscles, prevent injuries and eliminate stiffness of the body.
