Yoga Holiday

Enjoy a Yoga Holiday in The Gambia.

We are pleased to have teamed up with Yoga Garden Gambia for our new 7 day Yoga Holidays!

Our Lodge is a peaceful, serene, natural sanctuary. This makes it an ideal place to relax, unwind and connect with nature. Enjoy Yoga practice in a warm and friendly environment with the tranquil sound of bird song in the background.

Yoga Garden Gambia has a purpose built yoga area set back from our lodge. In just under an acre of it’s own grounds with fruiting trees (oranges, bananas, avocado, grapefruit, lemons), flowers, mature trees and an abundance of bird life. True tranquility, ideal for a Yoga holiday.

Our Yoga Holidays cover a wide range of Yoga styles. We have holidays suitable for all grades of practitioner, from beginners to those more experienced and advanced.

A 7 day Yoga holiday offers at least 2 yoga sessions a day in the purpose built  Yoga Shala in Yoga Garden Gambia. This is a traditional African bantaba (open thatched building) and it can cater for up to 18 people. We provide yoga mats, blocks and towels.

All classes during your Yoga Holiday are led by internationally trained, inspiring and friendly teachers. We also try to include at least 1 evening beach yoga sunset session.
