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.
