Idyllic Yoga Retreat in Zanzibar

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Tanzania.

Morning sun salutations in a serene garden studio and soulful sunset flow on a Swahili rooftop overlooking the tranquil Indian Ocean. Practicing in these environments truly gives an experience far beyond a physical workout that will truly awaken your spirit. Guided by a soothing voice through meditations and chakra opening breathwork, the day’s intentions soak into your being before the creative soul of the class leads you into unique yoga sequences full of artistic flows and graceful movements. A dynamic soundtrack twists and turns along with you, pulling your whole self further into a style of yoga that embellishes a holistic approach to energizing your mind, body, and soul.
