Feedback from Previous Retreats
'The Gambia is a place where you are immediately invited to immerse yourself in the moment, lose yourself in everyday interactions with people that are so unassumingly enriching, joyful and endlessly giving that you instantly begin to heal and want to give back. Deepa's yoga practice takes the meditation further, fills you with deep satisfaction, playfulness and creativity .. and I now know what open flow means.. flowing movements that take you from cobra to warrior fluidly, in beautiful sequences, like different moments of life flowing into each other - gracefully, openly and unexpectedly.'
The Gambia is situated on the west coast of Africa. It is often described
as the smiling coast of Africa, with its friendly and hospitable
inhabitants and adoring weather, Gambia provides a variety of experience
seldom found anywhere else in Africa.
It is approximately six hours flight from the UK and has the same GMT time
zone, allowing you to arrive without even a hint of Jet Lag.
One of the factors that contributes to making Gambia an attractive place
to visit is its all year round sunshine with temperatures not dropping
below 30'c its a wonderful place to unwind.
The people of Gambia are very special and welcoming and are often very
keen to lend a helping hand whenever necessary.
There are many attractions to visit during your stay, from the the vast
array of wildlife, open landscapes and african cultural centres, to some
of the most beautiful and idyllic beaches.
Open, wide and secluded sums up the beaches on the coast of West Africa.
They provide a sanctuary and haven for those wanting to escape the hustle
and bustle of life, and provide an ideal location for quieting the mind
and inner development.
The clean, clear and warm waters of the atlantic ocean draw you in and
with the sun shining all day long, it's a perfect way to cool down.
