Join Sole Yoga Holidays for a luxury yoga retreat in the beautiful island of Zanzibar. Zanzibar is characterized by beautiful white sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs and the magic of the historic and famous stone town. This slice of blue heaven is the ultimate and exotic Indian Ocean yoga and wellness experience, with its fascinating historical stone town and magnificent beaches.
Casa da Mare's modern style and the Swahili style are elegantly combined, both in the structure and in the furnishings. The property consists of three separate buildings, connected by quiet patios and serene living spaces, all surrounded by a lush tropical garden. Relax in full luxury under a grass Swahili pavilion while listening to the Indian Ocean.
The villa is reserved for this retreat for the week and there will be plenty of gorgeous areas to relax, unwind, and recharge in this magnificent slice of paradise. The rooms are decorated in gorgeous style with local inspiration at every corner. All of the luxury amenities you will need for your special week are included such as Wi-Fi, luxurious linens and towels, air-conditioning, and divine en-suite baths.
Twice per day, you will practice yoga on the beautiful area by the pool or at the beach with the sounds of only the Indian Ocean and birds to accompany you! Your host, Shari will guide you through a Vinyasa flow class and during the week, she will include a Yin and Restorative session. As always, Shari will listen to what the group needs and adjust accordingly for the best yoga experience!
The spices tour is a unique opportunity to learn about the soul of Zanzibar. For nearly two centuries, the spices are a key part of the economy of the island. You will go with a private guide to a botanical garden where you'll be shown herbs, spices, fruits, and other products of the earth with fascinating descriptions of how they are used and you will relish in their exotic scents and flavors.
You will take a private boat where you will cross a seascape dotted with small atolls, uninhabited islands, and white sandbanks. You will then dock at a small island where under a gorgeous canopy, you will enjoy a lunch of the freshest grilled fish, shellfish, and fruit.
Shari enjoys teaching a vigorous, playful, and challenging Ashtanga flow class accompanied by an equally dynamic playlist. She hopes through her teaching she can inspire others with the grace and love that she has found. Shari has been leading yoga retreats and holidays for over two years in amazing locations from Belize to India, to Morocco, and all over her adopted and gorgeous country, Italy.
This retreat takes place at a gorgeous villa, Casa da Mare, which sits at the edge of Jambiani, a village along the east coast of the island of Zanzibar.
