Beautiful situated yoga place on the top of a hill. Perfect warm up walking up the steep hill...
Fun-filled yoga with the professional, humble and humorous teacher Rukshan. He is very good at adapting the workout to suit everyone at whatever stage and making you feel welcome and good at it! Very recommended!

Yoga with Rukshan was an absolute pleasure
Feb 2020 • Couples
The classes were great - he catered to the needs and experiences of those in the class and he never had a pre-written script. We returned to Mirissa from further North to do more yoga with him. Rukshan is very knowledgeable and experienced, yet what was most refreshing was how open minded and humble he was.

Rukshan also takes the time after class to engage with everyone asking them their thoughts and offering his perspective.

A truly genuine person. Thanks Rukshan!

Truly authentic Yoga with an amazing expert.
Jan 2020 • Couples
My Girlfriend and I participated in two yoga classes with Rukshan on our short stay in Mirissa. Easily the best Yoga classes we have ever been to.
The location is very peaceful- just a short walk up hill away from the hustle and bustle of the beach and main road. The ambiance is calm and meditative. Rukshan is a calming and charismatic man who makes you feel very welcome. You get a sense straight away that he is an expert and you are about to be taught something with passion and experience. Rukshan is a real yogi, living everyday to this way of life, it was such a pleasure to be in his company and learn from him.

If you, like me, dip in and out of yoga a little then you will walk away wanting to dip in much more then you have done before.
If you are much more experienced at it then I think you will love every part of the whole experience- I met several people who were participating in teacher training there or had been practising yoga there regularly over several years.

Great, varied class with deeply experienced Rukshan
Jan 2020 • Couples
As a yoga teacher myself in Europe, I was keen to get an experience of how yoga is practiced in Sri Lanka. Rukshan was clearly a deeply knowledgeable yoga master who delivered a really interesting class, great explanations in English, interjected with wisdom and interaction. Really interesting, with many exercises I’ve never encountered in Europe, challenging and moving class for me and my husband (who is a total beginner). Can really recommend this place, and lovely Rukshan. Thank you.

Great teacher makes for engaging classes
Jan 2020
We went to classes here on consecutive days - the first was so excellent that we wanted to squeeze in a second before leaving Mirissa. Rukshan is a great teacher with a wealth of knowledge, and really takes stock of the students to make the classes interesting and exciting, different every time. I learned a lot, and enjoyed both classes immensely. The classes are long and challenging, so be prepared to push yourself but also definitely go in knowing your limits. The space is beautiful as well.

Great Unique Yoga experience
Dec 2019 • Solo
I was in Mirissa for a few days and went to some classes here. Rukshan is very experienced and welcoming to all.
The studio is beautiful set in the hills 5 minutes from the beach. The open air studio is stunning surrounded by healing nature.
The classes are for all levels. The style is not dynamic yoga but more focus on asanas and slowing down.
The 7am class kundalini is very gentle and mostly seated.
A unique experience. Would definitely return. Thank you Rukshan 🙏

Great Yoga experiences!
Nov 2019 • Couples
Last week we visited some drop-in classes at Rukshan (Kundalini and Vinyasa). We liked it very much. The 1,5 hour are filled with asanas, explanations and relaxation. He has a great way of explaining the teachings of Yoga. He is responsive to his students and also makes sure that the asanas are performed correctly.
He always asks if he is allowed to give help, if you don't want it he gives tips what you can improve and how.
I wish we had such a teacher at home. Many thanks to Rukshan for the great experience!
