Lamu Island with its tropical climate, excellent variety in accommodation to fit all budgets, miles of empty beaches and car-free sandy roads, is the ideal destination to relax and leave behind life’s stressfulness. The fresh seafood, organic foods and warm welcome of the Swahili people make it the perfect wellness getaway. Inspired by Lamu, chairlady Monika Fauth started Lamu Yoga, a community based organisation that hosts the Lamu Yoga festival on the pristine Muslim island.
The eighth annual Lamu Yoga Festival will be held from Tuesday 9th to Saturday 13th March 2021. The festival offers five days of yoga, with over 25 teachers, 150 yoga classes, meditations and workshops in multiple venues around Shela village, Lamu town and Manda Island. Experience many different styles of yoga from wonderful teachers, including Aerial yoga and early bird yoga on the magnificent Shela beach. Get a taste of the Swahili culture and join the Swahili Dinner, Sunset Dhow Sail and final bonfire.
Spoil yourself and extend your stay with a few days to enjoy all Lamu Island has to offer the weekend before or a few days after the festival.
Event Dates: 9 March 2021 ~ 13 March 2021
