Wild Island Yoga Retreat

About The Retreat

Imagine a week to switch off from the rest of the world on a remote island within the Lamu Archipelago. It's time for you to connect with nature with six nights in paradise complimented by the benefits of yoga. Beautiful, tranquil Manda Bay is roughly a 20-minute boat ride from the ancient Arab town of Lamu, which is now a World Heritage Site and is one of the oldest continually inhabited towns in East Africa. We will visit Lamu town during our retreat to experience its stunning architecture and rich culture as you take a stroll back in time. This retreat will be hosted at Manda Bay Hotel for four nights, followed by Salsabila Dhow for two nights. However, we understand that boat adventures aren't for everyone, and you are more than welcome to join us for the Manda Bay Hotel part only. These experiences will rejuvenate and restore mind, body, and soul. You will be able to walk back into everyday life with a refreshed heart. You will be staying on this beautiful traditional dhow for the last two nights of our Wild Island Retreat, sailing through the Lamu archipelago and exploring the multitude of untouched beaches and secret island hideaways. Our delicious meals will be prepared in the open-air kitchen at the boat's bow and served at the dining table on board. Once night falls, we will sleep beneath the stars on the dhow's deck, waking with the breathtaking landscape's magical sunrise and panoramic views. Our yoga session will be on Salsabila or a soft white sandy beach Near where the dhow is moored. A once in lifetime experience!

January 2022

From beginning to end this entire retreat felt like a dream! So many personal touches to every single aspect of every single day made this one of the best weeks of my life. Laura took the time to put together welcome gifts for each person and a menu that was absolutely expertly curated. I cannot wait for our next trip to Nairobi and our next yoga retreat with Laura.
