Yoga Events and Happenings | Lamu Yoga Festival 2022

Lamu Island with its tropical climate, excellent variety in accommodation to fit your budget, 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 the 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.

More information and rates coming shortly.
