Recharge and feel energised after a week of yoga, meditation, nourishing vegan meals, beautiful walking trails in nature and relaxing days spent on the white sandy beaches of Watamu Bay, Kenya.

The retreat takes place at Watamu Treehouse, a unique guesthouse located on the most pristine and quietest part of Watamu Bay, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The owners of Treehouse are passionate yogis and they built it with the intention to offer a beautiful and relaxing space for their guests. The beach is a leisurely 5 minute stroll through a private path surrounded by a natural forest. Many find this forest one of the most special parts of Treehouse and the destination is the quietest part of the long unspoiled beach in a protected marine reserve. Sunrise and sunset overlooking the forest and ocean can be experienced from one of the verandas or rooftop lounging spaces. The Watamu Marine National Park is close by and considered one of the best snorkeling and diving areas on the coast of East Africa. It is also rated the third-best beach in Africa, for its crystal clear water and white sandy beaches.

Chefs will make delicious meals consisting out of fresh, locally produced fruits and vegetables that’s nutritious for the mind and body. Ingredients are sourced with care, supporting local producers, and prepared with love.

The retreat is suitable for all levels, from the very beginner to the more serious yoga practitioner.

ABOUT THE TEACHER

CAROLINE PAJEFSKI

I’ve been teaching yoga since 2005 and opened Recline Yoga Studio in August 2009. My love of yoga started in 1994 when a friend and I decided to try our first class. I’ve been practicing ever since, and have been lucky enough to turn my passion into my work. It’s amazing to be part of the wonderful transformation people go through in their own yogic journey.

I started my training in South of India where I stayed for 6 months learning the art of Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. I did one-on-one training with two esteemed Indian Yogis, Santil and Ganesh, and did training from the beginners, intermediate to advanced A & B. In 2011 I did a Vinyasa training which transformed my yoga practice and rekindled the yogic flame within. 2013 Brought me to Thailand for more training, this time in Jnana Yoga where i learned what it is to be in the presence of real unconditional love and compassion, which has made me grow even more in my own yoga practice and gave me the tools to live yoga every day and grow ever closer to self-realisation.
