Into the Wild Yoga Retreat
Watamu, Kenya

28 September – 4 October 2024

The Kenyan village of Watamu beholds coconut palms, soft white sand beaches, turquoise pure waters, coral gardens and tiny paradise islands. Watamu is a Marine National Park offering a pristine snorkelling and diving experience with manta rays, turtles and gentle whale sharks. The region is habitat to abundant forest, wildlife, elephants, birds and butterflies. This paradise place is spiced with Kenyan, Arab and Italian culture. The delightful village features quaint Kenyan dukas and the ancient Gede Ruins, a mysterious 13th century Swahili village is nearby.

Watamu Tree House is set amidst Kenya’s indigenous coastal forest on the edge of Watamu’s white sand beach. It has been ecologically constructed with tropical simplicity in harmony with the beauty of nature. There are seven spacious double en-suite rooms and each provides an unforgettable and unique experience. The interior is designed in traditional Kenyan style with white, wood and splashes of colour to uplift your soul. Balconies open to sunrise ocean views or sunset forest views so that your gaze beholds beauty everywhere you look.

On waking up in this turquoise-white verdant paradise, we will do a blissful sunrise sadhana at the ocean-view yoga shala surrounded by indigenous forest, wildlife, bird song and the azure horizon. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we will embody the beauty and power of nature through elemental inspired Vinyasa Flow and Dharma Yoga. These soulful practices create a sense of connection, openness and vibrancy, leaving you feeling lovingly uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we will surrender to an introspective Yin Yoga and meditation practice at the yoga shala and on the beach, allowing your being to rest, rejuvenate and renew.

Sunrise to Sunset immerse yourself in the natural beauty of soft white sands and crystalline-turquoise waters. Swim in the natural cool-pool under a canopy of trees, relax and read on one of the verandas or sublime rooftop spaces and indulge in a blissful massage at the Lakshmi Spa. This is life at the tree house.

Kenya’s fertile land gifts food of the gods for our bountiful retreat nourishment. Watamu Tree House cuisine is abundant in flavour, colour, nutrients and freshness. Flavours are inspired by Swahili, Indian and Middle Eastern cultures. Enjoy freshly squeezed juice, coconut water or smoothies at sunrise and sunset. Ingredients are sourced with care at local markets and made with love. Principles of vibrancy and freshness ensure that food is bursting with life force.

In your free time, walk along the white sands of Watamu beach, snorkel in the coral gardens steps from the Tree House, take a kayak or paddle boarding tour. Experience diving in Watamu’s warm, tropical, diverse waters. Visit the ancient Gede ruins of a 13th century Swahili village or take a nature walk in Arobuko-Sokoke Forest, a glorious natural space that is home to elephants, wildlife, birds and butterflies. Watch the sunset on a majestic dhow boat as you sail through the jewel of Mida Creek. Share sundowners at sunset from the Tree House, on the beach or paddle boarding at sea.

Tsavo National Park is located two hours south of Watamu Tree House and you have the opportunity to go Into the Wild of Kenya, experiencing a wildlife safari to view the majestic animals of Africa before or after your retreat experience.

Into the Wild Yoga Retreat set on the white sands and turquoise Indian Ocean is an extraordinary and unforgettable setting where the power of nature pervades your body-being and takes you on a soul journey home.

We are blessed to retreat together in the pure beauty and power of nature in Kenya!
