Yoga every day in Gambia with Sue

“My name is Sue Marshall and I will be teaching yoga each day at Footsteps in this coming season!


I first started visiting Gambia three years ago with my partner Keith Wagstaff and we fell in love with this wonderful little West African country so much that we are now building a small house here next to Footsteps. My partner Keith has started a lighting project which helps enable school children do their homework at night called Sunny Night Light which Footsteps is also supporting.


I am delighted to have the opportunity to practise Yoga at Footsteps. I have been teaching yoga for over sixteen years in the UK and enjoyed leading several classes last year whilst we were staying at Footsteps.


Vinyasa or Pilates ?

I will cater for all levels of expertise so if it’s something you have been wanting to try but never managed it, here is the perfect place to start, amidst the beautiful grounds of Footsteps in their new purpose built yoga shala and also the possibility of sunset sessions on the lovely deserted beach which stretches for miles. If you have been doing yoga for some time and are familiar with the postures, I will be teaching a vinyasa style flow class suitable for all levels of experience.


Pilates will also be available for those familiar with this type of bodywork or have a go at both!


Any Questions ?

Come and treat your body to some winter sun and enjoy stretching your body in the heat in a very beautiful and peaceful setting.

Yoga retreat  4th Р11th December 2016

I am also teaching a yoga retreat for those who might like a little more for a week at the above dates. There will be two sessions a day, a more dynamic one in the morning based on vinyasa flow and a shorter session in the afternoon with a chance of a session on the beach at sunset, or being serenaded by the colourful and very vocal birdlife, both truly magical!


This is such an inspiring place to visit, Footsteps with their environmental ethos is perfectly suited and in harmony with many of the principles of yoga. Let it release a creative spark, make mandalas on the beach with shells or even yoga with african drums. There are so many possibilities to open your senses and enrich your life with new experiences in this wonderful environment.


This is one of the reasons that I want to spend more time in this country, it feeds your soul and your body will be fed with the most delicious and healthy food, much of it grown at Footsteps itself. You can also cool off in the unique freshwater pool or in the ocean nearby.


Help body and  mind through the winter!

Treat yourself to yoga and experience the wonders of Gambia, it will help you through the winter and with the Gambian sun and yoga your body will feel great too! I hope to see you soon!”
