Really enjoyed my lesson and wished I'd had time for more before the holiday ended. The Dome is a calm and inspiring space to practice in, but make sure you wear plenty of repellent. Mats are provided, FYI.

I had an Ayuverdic deep tissue massage and have never felt so relaxed. It got in deep and made my muscles and body feel fantastic!!! I highly recommend it and it was only 3,000 rupees=A$30 for 90 minutes and well worth the cost!

I felt very welcomed at secret Garden. If you are in Unawatuna and you are into Yoga or want to have a good Ayurvedic massage, then you should go and meet Upali. He is having a great knowledge and loves sharing it.
