About Lamu Yoga Festival.

Yoga, wellbeing and fun.

From 8th – 12th March 2017, we bring you the fourth Lamu Yoga Festival. The heart of the festival is based in Shela and we have 10 different beautiful, cool and peaceful yoga venues and studios. The festival encompasses Manda Island and Lamu Old Town so the whole area is abuzz with the spirit of yoga.

A vari­ety of yoga classes and med­i­ta­tions will be on offer throughout the four day festival for all abilities to participate in. From early birds yoga on the beach to meditating under the moon, the festival has something for everyone. High­lights include a dhow sail, work­shops, fun com­pe­ti­tions, and a grand finale beach party with Lamu drum­mers and acrobats.

Is your partner not a big yoga fan, but you want to enjoy Lamu together? Check out our partner program.

No cars, no stress.

Lamu is a small island on the coast of Kenya. The island has a trop­i­cal cli­mate, an excel­lent vari­ety of accom­mo­da­tion and miles of empty beaches. Lamu is the per­fect des­ti­na­tion to leave the stresses and strains of modern life behind.

The simple and delicious cuisine of fruit, veg­eta­bles and fresh seafood, makes Lamu the health and well­be­ing des­ti­na­tion of Kenya.

Our goal is to empower, strengthen and sup­port the com­mu­nity by encour­ag­ing har­mony in mind and body through the prac­tice of yoga.

Reg­is­ter for this amaz­ing fes­ti­val online, and be part of the fourth annual Lamu Yoga Festival!

Lamu Yoga Partners

With every great opportunity comes even greater responsibility. The Lamu Yoga Festival does not under estimate the power of the community that allows this initiative to flourish; it would not be a successful project otherwise. We request interested sponsors to identify initiatives that they would like to contribute to in order to give back to the communities that we thrive in.
