ol Donyo Lodge, Kenya | 30 November – 04 December & 04 – 08 December 2018
YOGA SOUL SAFARI
Following the success of Great Plains Conservation’s Wild Studio Photographic safaris, we are delighted to bring you our new Wild Studio Yoga retreats at one of the most spiritual locations on the African continent.
With views of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, from the volcanic Chyulu Hills (Ernest Hemingway’s Green Hills of Africa), these two four-night yoga Wild Studios will be conducted at Great Plains Conservation ol Donyo Lodge in southern Kenya.
YOGA FOR EVERYONE
“Yoga does not transform the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees”
– B.K.S Iyengar
ol Donyo Lodge is the setting for 4 days of yoga with a difference. There will be therapeutic meditation and yoga sessions at sunrise and sunset overlooking Mount Kilimanjaro; daily workshops to further knowledge of yoga; fabulous all inclusive delicious meals and drinks. The difference at ol Donyo Lodge is that in between these sessions there will be adapted activities that the lodge normally offers, from silent, guided walking safaris, horse riding, cycling, exploration of lava tunnels. Day and night game drives are also available. There will be plenty of time to relax, watching majestic elephants drink from the lodge waterhole from the safety of a log-pile hide or to enjoy a massage from your Pool Suite.
Binita Shah became a student of yoga over 10 years ago whilst she was working in the corporate world. A move to Dubai enabled her to re-think her career and she decided to dedicate her time studying the philosophy of Yoga and gaining her 500 hours teacher-training qualification.
She currently runs Hatha yoga classes for adults as well as therapy yoga covering back pain, stress and anxiety. Each class is planned carefully so that the student understands the benefits of yoga postures and walks away with new information.
Binita believes that the journey of yoga is never ending, she loves discussing the topic with other teachers, attends workshops that could benefit her and her students and continues to study yoga. She is passionate about keeping yoga authentic in a world that is making it more and more commercial.
