Yoga, Wellness and Fun

Fes­ti­val activ­i­ties will be cen­tered in the charm­ing vil­lage of Shela, but will encom­pass Man­da Island and Lamu Old Town, so the whole area will be abuzz. A vari­ety of yoga class­es and med­i­ta­tions — for all lev­els — will be offered over five days at 12 unique venues and stu­dios. From ear­ly-bird yoga on the beach to med­i­ta­tion under the moon, the fes­ti­val offers some­thing for every­one, from expe­ri­enced prac­ti­tion­ers, new­bies, to the curi­ous souls and every­thing in between.

High­lights include a Beach open­ing cer­e­mo­ny, Swahili din­ner, Dhow sail and Final bonfire.

Doing Our Part

We love our local com­mu­ni­ty and ask Lamu Yoga fes­ti­val par­tic­i­pants for their sup­port. You can con­tribute to our ongo­ing reusable san­i­tary pads ini­tia­tive for the Lamu girls, or leave your mat after the fes­ti­val for our young local upcom­ing yogis.

We also believe yoga should be acces­si­ble to every­one, so we are proud to sup­port free com­mu­ni­ty yoga class­es. Every week, Africa Yoga Project teacher Bel­dine Anyan­go teach­es local adults and chil­dren in Lamu Town and Shela. To sup­port this com­mu­ni­ty ini­tia­tive, please choose to donate 500 KHS dur­ing reg­is­tra­tion.


No Cars, No Stress

Lamu is an island on the north coast of Kenya, rich in cul­ture, tra­di­tion and nat­ur­al beau­ty. It boasts a trop­i­cal cli­mate, miles of emp­ty beach­es and many options for accom­mo­da­tions to suit all bud­gets. Lamu Old Town, the old­est Swahili set­tle­ment in East Africa, is a UNESCO her­itage site.

Besides the his­to­ry and nature, what else makes Lamu mag­i­cal? We don’t have cars, just plen­ty of don­keys and boats. With­out the stress and rush of mod­ern life, it’s easy to feel a mil­lion miles away.

The sim­ple and deli­cious Swahili cui­sine is part of the rea­son Lamu is known as Kenya’s health and well­ness des­ti­na­tion. We eat plen­ty of fresh fruit, veg­eta­bles and seafood dai­ly, and so will you.

We also spend lots of time enjoy­ing the unspoiled beau­ty of our island. Jog­ging or walk­ing on the beach, hik­ing in the dunes, swim­ming, sail­ing, tan­ning, fish­ing — and, of course, out­door yoga.

Getting Here

Trans­fer by boat from Man­da Air­port can be arranged by your accom­mo­da­tion. Catch­ing a bus from Mom­basa or Malin­di to Lamu is a cheap­er option.
