During my stay in Sri Lanka last week I had the pleasure of visiting Niyagama House. I had found it on the internet when I was searching for 'Yoga in Galle'. I am a Yoga teacher and interested in attending some classes while on holiday. I took a tuk tuk from Galle, about 15 minute drive into the tea plantation hills. Niyagama rises out of the steep slopes of hill. It sits firmly aloft, overlooking the treetops and surrounding plantations. It is exquisitely designed to blend with the surrounding culture and the best of the Sri Lanka architectural features, and also offers super modern facilities. The moment you step into the space one cannot help but relax in the atmosphere of calm and beauty. I had a wonderful Yoga session with Elke who owns Niyagama. She is a great teacher, and also the architect and designer. I had breakfast with her German family and took a dip in the infinity pool. The water is not chemically treated and is soft and doesn't sting your eyes. Please contact Niyagama for details of how they purify their swimming pool water. All the while surrounded by exotic birds and butterflies. Before lunch I had a full body massage. I had a gifted therapist. Niyagama offers a range of interesting therapies. I was wrapped in one of their sarongs and joined my family poolside before we had lunch. Traditional rice and curry, delicious. Again everything was luxurious and sumptuous. I am looking forward to going back.
