Kenya gets yoga-friendly

By Natalia Thomson

Kenya’s Kinondo Kwetu resort on the Indian Ocean is offering an exclusive seven-night Yoga Retreat from Nov. 16 to 23 with morning and afternoon classes.

Kinondo Kwetu yogaA special menu has also been created for the retreat, with cuisine designed to detoxify and revitalize. Participants can indulge in massages or beauty treatments and relax in the Finnish wood-fired sauna.

In addition to yoga, Kinondo Kwetu also offers power yoga, callanetics and Pilates classes. With callanetics, a personal trainer works in groups or private classes and goes through the whole body: cardio, core, strength and flexibility. The class will be adjusted based on fitness level and length of stay; and, should a guest be interested, the trainer can coordinate a program for the entire stay.

Located on a private beach south of Diani, Kinondo Kwetu is classified as a ‘Kaya” area (protected by the National Museum) due to its surrounding holy forests and sacred land.

The upcoming yoga retreat is for seven nights, with rates starting at $3,050 based on one person sharing a double or twin bedroom. This includes the daily morning and afternoon yoga classes; meals (including three-course lunch and dinners); a half-day safari trip to National Reserve Shimba Hills; excursions to the Kinondo Kwetu community works in the Kinondo village; canoeing, windsurfing and snorkeling gear; one in-pool diving lesson; tennis equipment and use of a court; limited laundry; and WiFi.
