Gambia Yoga Retreat

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
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.

The 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.

Yoga in The Gambia
The Gambia is an ideal place to develop your yoga practice. The heat encourages the body to open up and with the calm and tranquil sounds of the morning waves it's an attractive way to start your day and your yoga holiday.

Yoga classes will be held twice daily and will include Pranayama (breath control) and Meditation.
