YOGA

Would you like to join us in the magic world of Yoga while being on holiday on a tropical island ?
Then do it !

Yoga teaches us the importance of the flow in our lives. It teaches us to listen to ourselves, to find the inner balance and quiet. Yoga enables us to embrace our life and to look at it in a positive way. Nowadays yoga is starting to become considered a primary vehicle for the wellness programs because of its ability to promote health and healing at physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

Everyone can do Yoga. Yoga practices every part of the body by stretching and strengthening the muscles, the joints, the spine and the entire skeletal system. The Asanas (postures) also benefit our internal organs, glands and nerves. They contribute to the health of the entire system by releasing physical and mental stress. By doing so, Yoga energizes the body and calm the mind.  The philosophy of Yoga is not in dispute with any religion or belief and every person can engage in it. It’s a beautiful practice and a wonderful way to connect with ourselves, others and the environment.

We offer both private classes and drop-in led classes with highly qualified teachers.

In every class we focus on the 4 elements: Banda (contract), Pranayama (breath), Vinyasa (flow), Drishti (focus).

The afternoon lessons are based on Vinyasa flow with adaptations and will emphases on specific postures in order to work on hip opening, back bends and balance.

PRIVATE LESSONS:

Astanga-Vinyasa Yoga One-on-One private lessons:

Private lessons are the best way to be introduced to yoga. On the other hand, if you are not new to yoga but you feel you need to improve, private lessons offer the best opportunity to deepen your knowledge of Asanas. In other words, the private practice allows each of us to develop and progress at our own pace while being given personal, intensive attention.

During a private class, the Asanas are adapted to the practitioner and given as a set of tools that will help maintain proper practice even at the end of the vacation. You will be taught how to practice correctly in a safe, injury-free manner.

Since the focus is exclusively on you, the private practice is much more intense.

THE RETREAT:

The atmosphere is relaxed, not as intense as at a yoga retreat in fact we are not a pure yoga retreat ! We are happy to offer the possibility to practice yoga followed by a professional teacher  while being on holiday on a tropical island. You can opt to do yoga, sunbath, walk on the beach, hang out in a hammock between classes but if you wish you can have much more ! There is a vast range of things to do on the island, notably kite-surfing in our stunningly beautiful lagoon, some amazing diving and snorkeling as well as some superb historic and cultural activities. Zanzibar is a wonderful, romantic, historic and stunningly beautiful tropical island and it is a great place to meet other like-minded people.


FOOD:

On food we are flexible, from our a la carte menu  you can choose a variety of dishes including vegetarian options. We also offer wines and beers and coffee and tea. Whatever food you will choose we cook it in the most healthy way. Responsibly, we do not use palm oil. In our kitchen you will only find extra virgin olive oil and sunflower oil.

Does all that sound attractive to you as well ?
