Yoga Retreat to the Sun
September 23rd - 30th (including September 24th Public Holiday)
with Melanie Castleman

Escape this Spring to the gorgeous island of Zanzibar for sun, white sand, turquoise ocean and magical yoga.  Our Yoga Warrior Retreat will be taking place at Flame Tree Cottages in the peaceful and beautiful Nungwi Village, in the north of the island.  Flame Tree Cottages is a small comfortable hotel offering two different venues for the yoga.  The morning practice will be in the yoga tent, while the afternoon practice will be on the rooftop with only the beach and ocean in front of you.

There is only room for 14 yogis on this retreat.

Your retreat will be led by one of South Africa's most loved teachers, Melanie.  Melanie attracts students from yoga teachers to beginners.  Yoga Teachers love her creativity and unwavering commitment to take them further in their practice.  Beginners love her loving and nourishing touch and clear instruction.  Melanie has explored many styles of yoga, including Forrest Yoga but her style is mainly vinyasa with a guaranteed new twist every single practice.

Yogis on this retreat are in for an absolute treat to spend 7 days exclusively with Mel and other yogis that share a love and passion for yoga no matter where they are on their journey.  They are also in for a wonderful experience escaping to this exotic special island which will erase winter and possibly the rest of your life!
