Marcel found her love for yoga over a decade ago while sailing and diving all corners of the World. Even though taught in Ashtanga yoga, she has developed a deep understanding of more mindful and calm practices out in nature, connecting with the energy that surrounds her, which she also applies to her retreats. "Our retreat groups are small allowing personal attention. It is a fun and non-competitive environment, making it a peaceful healing space for anyone joining. It’s about you and connecting with yourself and nature, being mindful and having an adventure of a lifetime".

The combination of yoga and safari in a beautiful country was an unforgettable experience. We stayed in carefully selected lodges and were stunned by the changing landscapes and wildlife. Last but not least Marcel the hostess and Caroline our yoga teacher are both wonderful persons and tried to make it perfect for everyone. Highly recommended!
