June 2022

My first yoga holiday. My first African safari. I could not have had a more fabulous trip. From pre-holiday booking information, to transfer, to Ol Pejeta cottages, it was just the best experience... so much more than just a yoga holiday. I'd recommend anyone interested in yoga and animal conservation to try and join Laura & Kat on their next adventure. You will never forget it.



June 2022

I knew this retreat was going to be great based on the online classes that Laura and Kat organized during covid. It truly lived up to my expectations and then some.



June 2022

Kat and Laura run a fantastic retreat for the socially conscious and curious yogi. They led a well balanced yoga and safari schedule, partnering with local business and communities to deliver a unique, reflective experience in a precious part of the world... Thank you to both Kat and Laura for such a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
