Do you know this feeling of being very busy externally, but not really moving anything internally? With the physical concepts, Eastern wisdom, and Native American medicine of Forrest yoga, you will explore the deeper layers of your bodies so that you may become a better listener and become more skillful at voicing what is really important. The themes are trust, boundaries, anger, projection, and intimacy.
You will stay for 4 nights at Banana House. Banana House is a boutique hotel in Shela, Lamu Island. It has all the charms of a quietly elegant private home with 16 rooms spread over three houses that are situated in a magnificent tropical garden. Although just a few minutes’ stroll to the pure white sands of Shela Beach, Banana House is totally isolated from the world outside the grounds.
Step through the door and in moments, the stress and hassle of your long-distance journey magically drop away. You will immediately feel the love that Banana House has put to give it a warm and homely atmosphere.
On this yoga retreat, all levels are welcomed. You will practice barefoot at 28 degree Celsius. You will have 4 morning yoga sessions, intensive asana practices, deep work group sessions, and shamanic ceremony.
On this retreat, you will enjoy activities such as sunset dhow sailing trip, early morning beach walk through dunes, and snorkeling.

This retreat will take place in Shela, Lamu Island, Kenya. Shela is a small village on Lamu island. It is situated at the point of the island, where the white sanded beach and the dunes stretch out for a couple of hours undisturbed walking and pure bliss.
The white and deserted sandy beaches of Shela, sailing on a dhow, streets just wide enough for one fully laden donkey to pass, Swahili women dressed in black bui bui, their hands painted with henna, the colorful beach boys singing “Hakuna matata, don’t worry be happy”, the rich Swahili culture, and the warm welcome of the inhabitants make your visit to Lamu an unforgettable experience and a place you will want to return.
Daily breakfast and dinner (mostly vegetarian and some fish) will be provided for you. You will also enjoy lunch snacks, tea, coffee, water, and welcome drink.
You can book your flight to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in Nairobi. From there, you can connect to Lamu’s Manda Airport (LAU) by booking budget flights (www.jambojet.com) or safari style flights (www.flysafarilink.com or www.airkenya.com). Kilunda Yoga will pick you up from the airport. The pick-up is included in the price.
