About
We are bringing you the fourth annual Lamu Yoga Festival March 8-12, 2017. Activities will be centered in charming Shela village, but will encompass Manda Island and Lamu Old Town, so the whole area is abuzz with yoga.

A variety of yoga classes and meditations — for all levels — will be offered over four days at 10 unique venues and studios. From early-bird yoga on the beach to meditation under the moon, the festival offers something for everyone, including new experiences for long-time practitioners.

Highlights include a dhow sail, workshops, fun competitions, and a grand finale beach party with Lamu drummers and acrobats.

PS: Registration closes on March 1, 2017. For details on accommodation, festival ticket and airport transfer, download the lamu-yoga-festival-2017 (pdf) pamphlet.

About
An electronic music producer, an 18-piece classical orchestra, a jazz band, Kenya’s top vocalists, LED dancers, acrobats and an old-school hip-hop star will share one stage in a two hour show on Friday the 3rd of March, in a unique event that promises to be unlike any other experienced in East Africa.

Join us as we journey through Kenya’s musical history, from its 70s funk to its 90s hip hop, all the way to today’s underground anthems and international hits. All mashed up with the genius of Mozart’s symphonies and Jikoni’s live + electronic beats.
