Celebrating Ulpotha's 25th Anniversary, we are hosting this group as a celebration of Ulpotha and all the wonderful people who have passed through its gates over the years. The retreat is only open to past guests and our friends with a limited number of spaces available (so please book soon). Guests and friends will be able to enjoy twice daily yoga classes with fabulous Wade Gotwals, partake in Ayurveda treatments and indulge in massages from our visiting masseurs. And we will do our best to set the scene for much fun and frivolity - as well as celebration - as we see in the New Year. Past guests are reminded not to expect a yoga boot camp during this week 🙂
