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.

Dear Rukshan, thank you for this great experience here with you in Mirissa. Your style and especially your yoga shala in the middle of the jungle have enriched me greatly in the last month! Your yoga teacher training was a unique enrichment and will support my yoga career in the future. Best wishes, Marry!

I am very grateful to Rukshan, my yoga teacher in Mirissa, for the wonderful yoga classes. His teaching style is very warm and positive. It’s pure tanking with positive energy. Every other class was different from the previous by the style. He also pays a lot of attention to breathing techniques and meditation and offers Kundalini yoga as well. He also provides yoga teaching training in his studio. The location for yoga classes is situated a bit higher in beautiful jungles on an open terrace and you can see monkeys jumping around literally every session 😁 I can only recommend these yoga classes with Rukshan🙏

I did my teacher training here, and I just loved the ambiance, naturi ness, calmness and good energyness of this spot. I just made up these adjectives but that's how I felt. Looking at the nice trees, listening to the waves and birds and doing yoga there was amazing. Beside this Rukshan is a very good teacher, he knows a lot about the real yoga, we had a bit of philosophical conflicts but think it was cool because then we got to know each other even better and adjusted the classes based on our energy and personalities. I learnt a lot about the history of yoga and a lot of meditation techniques which I am not super good at since my focus has always been asanas. so super nice, beside this I love his family, his papa mama and sister are just amazing always there with their big smiles helping out and I wish them all the best in the world. I am going to use Rukshan learning in my life, really, and see if I become more mindful. I will miss the trees and monkeys jumping around, the nice teas after class, Rukshan stories and all the good vibes.

I was looking for an authentic yoga/ spiritual experience. I randomly found Rukshan Yoga and decided to go for it and I didn't know what to expect! This 1 week retreat was one of the greatest experience I've had. I've never felt so peaceful and happy after leaving this place and as Rukshan said "this retreat is not only for a week, it's for your whole life".
I definetely recommend this place if you want to retreat yourself from your day-to-day life, if you're struggling to recenter yourself. Yoga classes, discussions, meditations and other activities with Rukshan are helpful. He's a real guru I would say :)

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.

I had a wonderful week at the retreat. Rukshan is a great person and tries to give everything he can.
He always designed the yoga classes to suit the guests and I was able to learn a lot. It is very traditional and the environment in the "jungle" with sea view in the great shala is unique.
I felt like part of his family during the time and I am incredibly grateful for everything I was able to experience during the week and that I was able to meet completely wonderful people.
I would 100% recommend anyone to go to Rukshan !

Beautiful yoga classes in a stunning spot in Mirissa. The studio is situated up a steep hill in the jungle with views of the ocean. Rukshan is an amazing teacher! I attended classes almost every day for a week and felt so nourished after each one. Rukshan weaves yoga philosophy, mantra, pranayama as well as asana (poses) into classes and is highly experienced and knowledgeable. Would 100% recommend!

Peaceful and hidden paradise place. The venue is 5 min driving distance from the main road. A bit more walking as it is up the hill. Definitely worth the effort. Splendid view on the greenery and the sea during the session. The yogi teacher takes the time to know you and your expectation. I had the change to have a session with only my partner and then with 4 other perso. It was vyniasa yoga. Deep stretching at the end. Nice slow and efficient flow. I really enjoyed the experience and the good energy of the space. Clean, professional and good expertise. Warm and nice people.

Thank you Rukshan for the experience. It was my second time doing yoga and I appreciate you accommodating the lesson to my abilities. Walking in to your home I felt at peace, the area is very green and it was nice to practice yoga outside hearing the wind and birds. Incredibly peaceful! I would love to come back and take a lot more sessions next time.
