Seva Retreat Sri Lanka

Travel the world - Find Inner Peace - Be of Service

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
— Mahatma Gandhi

Introducing

Nil Manel Foundation and Let’s Imagine Non-Profit invite you to a healing and harmonizing getaway that combines yoga and service on a two-week retreat with Ayurveda treatments and meditation throughout the course of the retreat.  

Seva is selfless and devotional service. Seva makes your heart larger, more generous and full of universal love. Our yoga seva retreat connects you with an opportunity for adventure, exploring the culture Sri Lanka, practicing yoga and giving back with volunteer work.

In the lusciously green environment of Sri Lanka, you can easily let go and connect to your peaceful inner-self. Re-energize in a small circle of daily yoga and meditation practices. Treat your body to the organic, fresh fruits and vegetables, taste the exotic spices of Sri Lankan local cuisine, experience the fascinating flora and fauna on recharging yoga hikes to waterfalls, through tea plantations and on unforgettable service adventures with rescued elephants and sea turtles.

Service Opportunties

Projects include helping care for turtles at the sea turtle hatchery, assisting locals with essential care for rescued elephants, helping plant mangrove trees and socializing and helping prepare food for local dogs. December is hatching season, so if we are lucky you can even experience the special opportunity of witnessing baby sea turtles head towards the ocean. Get excited about 10 enjoyable days for your body, mind & soul!
