7 DAY KILIMANYARO YOGA RETREAT

About the Yoga Retreat

Indulge your senses in the vibrant colours and mystical atmosphere of Mt. Kilimanjaro, known as the Mountain of Light. As the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, Kilimanjaro is overseer of the continent, the summit of Africa and is sure to inspire you to take your yoga practice to the next level. On the slopes lies Kilemakyaro Mountain Lodge where you will have a chance to experience tranquillity and serenity through yoga and meditation twice a day, in the morning and evening. In between yoga sessions we will be exploring the local wildlife, culture, and nature with 4 day-trip excursions. Surrounded by heavy forests, Kilemakyaro Mountain Lodge is a local and family run property nestled in a coffee plantation with its own fruit and vegetable gardens which supply the kitchen for daily meals with both vegetarian menu and meat/fish dishes. After dinner relax and share stories around an evening bon-fire.

Yoga Style: Vinyasa Flow & Dynamic Hatha

Taught by Heather Cruise, a Yoga Alliance Certified instructor, she teaches a dynamic form of yoga benefiting those seeking strength, flexibility, a clear mind, and an energy boost. Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a dynamic flow of yoga which uses a system of breath synchronized with movement (Vinyasa) and a range of postures linked together in a continuous flow to build an intense and challenging yoga series. By engage the energy locks (bandhas) and the eye gazing points (dristis) the mind can relax so one can focus the mind in a meditative way during the practice.
