About the styles
Vinyasa flow, often also called power yoga, is an active and athletic style of yoga adapted from the traditional Ashtanga style. Focus is on moving with your breath. With the heat of Arugam Bay, you will start sweating easily. It’s also the perfect complement to surfing, since you flow while stretching all body parts.
Hatha yoga focuses on the basic and classical approach for asanas. On the one hand, it is about getting to know postures (for beginners). On the other hand, it is great to work on your alignment and holding the postures.
Yin yoga focuses on stretching and lengthening your deep connective tissues. The idea is that you relax your muscles and let gravity do the work. By holding postures for at least 3 minutes you also practice your patience and letting go. Especially when you tend to move all the time, Yin might be challenging. For this very reason, Yin will help you to start calming your body and mind. The mental strength you build up with Yin supports to stay focused on the water while surfing, too. To sum up, it is really
In a Yin & Yang Class we first heat up the body with some Yang (Vinyasa) to calm down and let go in the Yin.

For teachers: Retreats, trainings and workshops at Stay Golden
Are you a yoga teacher looking for a great place to host a retreat, training or a workshop? Contact us for your individual offer based on your preferences and needs.
Our yoga space can host a maximum of 15 students. Stay Golden is located directly at the beach and surrounded by nature, hence, it is a perfect space for a retreat or a training. Due to our different room categories, we can accommodate 12 (everyone in an own bed) respectively a maximum of 20 persons (one double bed shared by 2 persons). We will propose a food menu rich in diversity, also available as vegetarian or plant-based variations. Activities like a National Park safari or surfing lessons can spice up your retreat or training additionally. We can especially recommend the months from October to February for an event, as it is less hot (25 to 28 degrees), and the room rent prices are lower due to the slow season.
We look forward to hearing from you!
