Paradise Immersion

Luxury yoga experience in Africa

Imagine yourself saluting the first sunlight on the coast of Zanzibar.
Fresh Indian Ocean breeze, white sand, and aquamarine waters are just simple ingredients for the tasty breakfast.

The days will flow like a vinyasa practice, everytime new opportunity for mindfulness, exploration, dedication, loosening up, and noticing what’s within you. The schedule encourages good habits, with meditation, twice-daily yoga (a Sunrise flow class in the morning; restorative in the afternoon), raw-food meals and inspiring talks.

Review by Laura-Jane

My friend did the Bliss Body Retreat Christmas 2017 and came back raving about it and said I HAD to go with her in October 2018…by March 2018 I found myself booked to go to Zanzibar!!

Where do I start? Zanzibar is stunningly beautiful and the coast where we were was breathtaking. Our stunning villa was right on the beach (pool over looking the lapping waves) and it all immediately gave me the feeling of calm and peace.

The Yoga at sunrise and sunset was a routine that you settled in to with ease and practicing at these hours seem totally natural and ‘right’. The Practice itself was very routed in the ‘real’ yoga. Mindful and all times and the flows to work different things each day. The evening Yin/Restorative was completely calming and again meditative at its heart.

Vlada introduces different meditative practices and breathing techniques that give you so much to think about when you leave. It opened up a whole new vista of mindful and holistic yoga.
Food..that is another planet invented by the creativity of Olha that never ceased to amaze us everyday for the sheer beauty of presentation and firing up the tastebuds beyond your wildest dreams. Raw food for a week made me feel energised and more alive in my body.

Olha was so patient as we never stopped asking us questions about recipes at each meal and our workshop was such fun and made me want to use this method of eating once a week as a good cleansing and energising lifetime habit.

I could go on and on and the reader will feel this is too good to be true but it IS TRUE! If you want to come home full of renewed strength, energy and an understanding of yourself and the universe with all that entails then GO..book..don’t miss out.
I’m saving up for my next trip!
