YOGA AND SPA BREAK IN THE HEART OF SRI LANKA

WITH DEBBIE CURRAN;

Friday 25TH FEBRUARY TO Friday 11TH MARCH 2022

Jim’s is delighted to offer you an amazing, luxury 14-day Yoga and AyurvedicSpa Break at our 2 boutique hotels in Sri Lanka. The first 7 nights will be at our Jim’s Farm Villa on a 50 acre organic spice farm in the lush hilly heart of Sri Lanka, including 3 visits to local major Cultural Triangle sites.

On the 8th day, we’ll transport you –with a Kandy visit en-route- to our Jim’s Beach Villa on the beautiful west coast beaches, just south of Hikkaduwa. From Jim’s Beach we will also offer 3 trips out to explore the local sites, including nearby Galle.

Whether you are a Yoga beginner, wanting to improve your flexibility and general fitness, or an advanced Yoga student, looking to deepen your practice, our highly qualified Yoga teacher, Debbie Curran can meet each individual’s needs. You will learn relaxation and breathing techniques to help reduce your stress levels, and you will leave Jim’s Farm and Jim’s Beach feeling calmer, fitter and more energised, in both mind and body. Yoga is for everyone; it is not competitive, and you can practice and develop at your own pace. The classes at Jim’s Farm will be held in our shaded Yoga Pavilion, with breath-taking views, surrounded by nature. Similarly Jim’s Beach has a high level Yoga Pavilion, which benefits from gentle breezes and a soft wooden floor.  

Debbie has been practicing Iyengar Yoga for more than 20 years, and teaching for 18 years. She has also completed courses in meditation, mindfulness and practical philosophy. Find out more by checking out Debbie’s website www.yogainbromley.co.uk or email her directly at deb.curran@hotmail.co.uk

At Jim’s Farm you will also be offered 2 hours of free Spa treatments of your choice from Dr Ranjith, our highly qualified and experienced Ayurvedic Doctor. Extra treatments will be charged at Rs 5,000 per hour.

We – Kevin and Janet Abbott, the UK owners of Jim’s – opened our Jim’s Farm Villas boutique hotel 9 years ago, and with our amazing local team, led by Jesse Dias our Managing Director, we have secured an excellent clientele with the support of local and international agents. In 2021 we have purchased and upgraded our new Jim’s Beach Villa during the recent pandemic.
