" It's hard to decide what the best part of this holiday was. The sun, the gentle Indian Ocean waters, the food, the balmy, non-stifling humidity, the seclusion of Tofino beach just around the corner from vibrant Tofo, the improptu jam sessions on the beach, the freely available coconuts - I could go on. Someone once said that wherever you go, there you are. Well with the daily yoga sessions, you greet yourself with a smile everyday and are the best company to yourself. Also these good vibrations are flowing through everyone else who is on the yoga holiday with you, so there are friends aplenty to be made. This holiday is definitely in the top five of the best things I've ever done for myself."
Zamo Mkhwanazi, Writer/Director, previous Yoga Warrior Retreat Tofo attendee

Set in the tropics of Southern Africa, Mozambique, 500kms north of Maputo, Tofo offers an idyllic setting surrounded by miles of unspoiled beaches, pristine coral reefs and thousands of palm trees amidst the laid back Latino-Afro culture of Mozambique.

The yoga retreat will be hosted at the Gaia Yoga Temple with its architectural grandeur that is sure to capture the creative spirit of Yogi Travelers for the ultimate yoga holiday. The blend of Mozambican, Mali and West African architecture creates an extraordinary ambiance for yoga practice.

Daily Vinyasa style Yoga classes will be held by yoga teacher, Tanya from Yoga Warrior, offering quality yoga ranging from strength and flexibility-building flow, to more relaxed, fun partner yoga work and restoratives.  Careful alignment and deep breath-work are the foundation of every yoga class to protect the body and calm the mind.

"It is when we spend time on our yoga mat moving our bodies and listening to our breath that we start to still the mind and reconnect to the blissful silence of our true nature deep within"
Tanya, Yoga Warrior Teacher

Enjoy your days aside from the yoga visiting the beautiful beaches of Tofo and Tofinho, Mozambique, learning to surf, snorkelling with the gentle plankton feeding giants of the ocean, whale sharks, or scuba-dive to find the resident manta rays on this african coast.

Indulge this New Year in the luxury of daily yoga practice and truly feel the effects of yoga, leaving you totally regenerated, re-energized and ready to face 2009 with an invigorated passion for life!
