ONE WEEK DIANI BEACH

Enjoy a treatment or just relax in and around the pool. In the afternoon, you’ll enjoy a different workshop every day (e.g. Posture clinics, laughter yoga, breathing exercises and many more – be surprised) followed by an evening meal.

MAASAI MARA SAFARI

Stay at a top resort and explore a variety of wildlife, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino). The Masai Mara is the best place to see the Big Five up close. Once you are driving through the savanna, you will feel a deep connection not just with the animals but a feeling of belonging. 

BLUE MARLIN HOTEL

Imagine a luxurious part of the beautiful Kenyan beach, palms swaying in the soft winds, turquoise ocean, and sand gleaming in the afternoon sun. Where you can dive into the beautiful turquoise sea or just enjoy the romantic atmosphere and sheer pleasure while sipping a drink at sunset. A hotel which fills your days with joy, hours to relax in tropical nights and days filled with different kinds of activities – sports like snorkelling kitesurfing or diving on a beautiful coral reef as well as cultural excursions on nearby islands such as Chale Island, hiking to Shimba Hills – it all comes down to Blue Marlin Beach Hotel. Imagine yourself here after enjoying impressive seascape in this beautifully designed boutique hotel. How would you feel waking up every day? Are you ready to join this dream-like and experience life at its best at Kenya.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Each day will start with a group morning meditation session with a variety of different meditation techniques giving you the tools to sit in stillness and notice yourself. With over 15 years of experience in Bikram Yoga, Nadine will share with you her knowledge of the Bikram sequence in a daily covered outdoor Yoga class. 

Afterwards, we’ll provide a mainly vegetarian brunch and then take time to enjoy a treatment or relax in and around the pool or at the beach. In the afternoon, you’ll enjoy a different workshop every day (e.g. laughter yoga, breath workshop, acro yoga and many more – be surprised) followed by an evening meal. 

We will also run Posture Clinics giving you time to get personal adjustments and guidance; the perfect chance to get all those questions answered and leave with a greater understanding of all the postures and how to acquire greater depth with your practice. 

As a Professional Life Coach, Nadine guides you in a group coaching session to transform your challenges, move towards your dreams, & learn more about your true self. These sessions will support your personal growth, learning, and life journey.
