Your hosts


Tania’s practice began with her dad as a teenager. After years of regular yoga practice she studied with the Amrita School of Yoga to qualify as a Traditional Hatha Yoga teacher. She has now been leading classes for 19 years.

Her teaching emphasis is on the power of the breath to manage and open the body, postural alignment, yogic philosophy and the integration of yoga principles into daily life.

She continues to develop her practice, infusing the different schools of yoga to give a rounded class reflecting the best of all the schools of yoga she continues to study.

This retreat is co-led by Tania and Will; you will be taught by both instructors who will alternate throughout the retreat.

Based in London, Will has been a yoga instructor for 10 years. Having led countless retreats in his career, Will has perfected the art of creating a warm and inclusive atmosphere on his retreats.

Morocco is where it all started for Will on his first yoga instructor course. This is what he really loves – travelling to tropical locations with people who share his yogic passion. Come join him!

The venue


The venue provides total tranquility away from the hustle and bustle.

You’ll stay in your own private villa with each villa sleeping one, two or three guests. 

Expect to lounge by the pool, practise in the outdoor yoga shala and get a revitalising dose of Sri Lankan sunshine.

Ten nights of luxurious wellness at Sri Devi, a beautiful retreat centre on the south coast of Sri Lanka.


Tania is an outstanding and exceptional teacher — unique, passionate and gifted. She delivers a thoughtful practice to reflect each individual’s needs.


Sri Devi is a hidden gem. The team strive and succeed in delivering a thoughtful, comfortable stay with exceptional service and food. It is secluded and peaceful, nestled in nature but with beaches and activities a short tuk tuk ride away.


The programme

The retreat is both a holiday and a chance to practise yoga outside in tropical surroundings.


Most days will include morning and evening yoga classes, featuring breathwork, meditation, and a great playlist.

Will’s vinyasa flow classes will be playful, offering sequences to improve posture and alignment and leave you feeling calm and grounded. His restorative classes are slower in style and offer soothing restful postures to promote a great night's sleep.


As a passionate student of yoga, Tania infuses her classes with the many yoga styles she has studied. Expect to enjoy a rounded class that reflects the best the different schools have to offer.

Will Wheeler Yoga Instructor at Venture Retreats

Will is a lovely, delightful and focussed yoga teacher; he makes a huge effort to ensure that everyone is socially included, very important when there are solo people and others in established groups who know one another.

His teaching style is very clear, creative and balanced, as well as empathic; the differentiation he provides ensures everyone’s individual practice is both supported and challenged.


I loved the emphasis on breath work and felt both stronger, calmer and more ‘whole’ by the end of the week.


Relax & Refuel


You’ll be set up for the day with a healthy Sri Lankan breakfast of fruits, omelettes and string hoppers. And after a hard day of relaxing, you’ll be rewarded with a sumptuous Sri Lankan feast.

Dietary requirements? Sri Devi’s mouth-watering dishes cater for everyone, whether vegan, vegetarian, or pescetarian.

Plus there’ll be an evening out to enjoy the local cuisine, with beach front dinner and drinks.

This retreat is all about balance; there are plenty of opportunities built into the retreat for excursions — and for enjoying the delicious Sri Lankan cuisine.

You can choose to spend your days relaxing  in the private grounds of Sri Devi or enjoy some of the optional day trips for a small additional cost – typically £25 – £35.

A safari trip to Yala National Park to spot elephants, leopards and other creatures in their natural habitat is a great day out.

Other optional activities include a boat trip to Cinnamon Island, a cycling tour, a cookery class, and a luxury sunset cruise. Transportation is provided and organised by the venue.

Massages are also available in the onsite treatment room. Prices range from £24 for a 60-minute full body massage to £37 for a 90-minute Ayurvedic massage.
