TANZANIA

Healthfulness Yoga Retreat Zanzibar, 22nd – 29th October 

 

Our annual healthfulness retreat is the perfect place to recharge, reflect and refocus for 7 nights. Held in a beautiful beach front villa in Jambiani, a coastal village on the South East of the island, let the Indian Ocean’s waves wake you up in the morning and put you to sleep at night.

Eat the freshest locally grown produce from the village and taste the catch of the day from the fisherman from the turquoise sea. Start you day with a revitalising yoga practice and build your day with inspiring workshops, classes and trips. Or opt for quiet time journaling, painting or relaxing around the pool. Make heartfelt connections with fellow kindred spirits looking for that experience of a lifetime.

The town is a close-knit vibrant village made up of artisans and fisherman. A friendly, welcoming community, where you’ll here the say “Jambo” hello each time you pass a native. Along the beach you’ll find a string of boutique accommodations, hotels and restaurants catering for the now growing tourists or expat visitors.

Due to the moon’s rotation, during the day the tide will pull back as far as 200m from the beach and you’ll see women using that time to plant and lay their seaweed traps. Around 4pm when the Indian ocean waves returns, the local fisherman emerges with the daily catch. This can all be seen from the backyard of the 7 bedroom private villa we will call home during our time in Zanzibar.

Do you feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster? Attracting unhealthy relationships? Are you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, foggy, craving clarity and peace of mind?
