Ayurveda, translating in Sanskrit as ‘life-knowledge’ travelled across the ocean from India to Sri Lanka thousands of years ago.
My first encounter with Yumi was at Helga’s Folly in November last year. Following an exhausting 4 hour train journey (the day after completing a coast to coast tuk tuk challenge with British Airways!) we arrived at the Folly to the warm, colourful welcome of Helga and her delightfully eclectic friends, including Yumi and her husband Waruna.
Helga’s Folly. A unique, otherworldly dreamworld, nestled in the hills of Kandy; the last capital of the ancient era of kings with the spectacular ‘temple of the tooth’ at it’s heart.
