Guest Services and Management of Ayurveda Shunyata Villa ~ Sri Lanka

Sanjeewa Jayabandu – General Manager


supports Shunyata from the beginning as a loving friend of the house and as yoga teacher. In August 2016, he also took over the general manager of Ayurveda Shunyata Villa with great energy.

Our Yoga guests, who got to know Sanjeewa in his classes, will already know it: Sanjeewa not only teaches and practices a very special kind of Yoga, but in the tradition of his family he also learned the teachings of Ayurveda very deeply.

With him we can combine Ayurveda and Yoga in a complementary and unique way, and our house is steered and guided by his loving and quiet personality.

Together with Maria and Jürgen, Sanjeewa is excited to make Ayurveda Shunyata Villa for its guests an exceptional place, where physical and mental well-being can form and grow.

Anja Krug-Jayabandu – Organization Yoga Ayurveda Retreats and Coaching


has worked 19 years for a global logistics group, among others as a trainer and coach in the human resources department; she is a trained psychological counselor and mental trainer.
After she discovered us and visited us repeatedly for Ayurveda cures, she finally joined the Ayurveda Shunyata family in 2009.

“From the very first moment when I came to this place, I felt something special about it and its people. Every arrival felt like a homecoming for me, here I felt safe and looked after. I could be as I am; when I was looking for someone to talk to – someone was there for me, and when I wanted to be for myself – I was given enough space. Yes, during my Ayurveda cures I was “seen” as a person, over all that years. About this fact, I was very impressed and touched. In my job as trainer and coach, I had the opportunity to support many wonderful people on their personal journey of life. And as part of the guest services and in many other functions in the Ayurveda Shunyata Villa I can and may follow this vocation in such beautiful form. Each of us carries within herself or himself the potential to live a fulfilled and happy life. My life shows me every day again that one should rediscover this potential and live freely. And there are so many ways and possibilities to do so, which are just waiting to be discovered. So, discover us. I am looking forward to meeting you!”
