Devi Mozambique Yoga Retreat Schedule

Learn about the wild dolphins from Angie Gullan, expert guide, and researcher with 22 years relationship with the local dolphins of Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique.

A snorkeling introduction for those who need it. A full brief on responsible behaviour in the water, so that we do not harm or disturb these majestic creatures. Three trips out to sea, where we get to go into the water and watch these beautiful animals as they swim, glide and play. A deeply healing and peaceful experience

Mornings are spent either enjoying a beautiful Vinyasa yoga flow to get the day started or in the water, experiencing the serenity and peaceful playfulness of the two wild dolphin pods that swim in the bay. We can really learn a lot from dolphins, their fluid nature and their ability to just let go and have fun.

Afternoons can be spent in self-reflection, chilling by the pool, exploring Ponta Do Ouro, or the underwater world with a nearby scuba school. In the evenings, we have optional Yin and Restorative yoga or just spend the evening watching the sunset with a refreshing drink and chill.

There will also be plenty of free time for self-contemplation and exploring. There is an option to do your own discover scuba course or go for a dive. Please check in with JaiLife to discuss.

Included excursions

  • 3 boat trips to snorkel in the ocean (weather dependant)
  • Meeting the marine life as well as the two pods of wild dolphins that inhabit Ponta do Ouro
