Yoga, Swahili style

Last week Leo and I traveled with 2 friends to Lamu island, just off the coast of northern Kenya, for the best and only yoga festival I have ever attended.  The festival was held in the village of Shella, where the roads are made of sand and donkeys are the main method of transport.  In Shella, we could walk from one side of the village to the other in 10 minutes, going from one yoga class to the next.  We tried new styles of yoga and learned from different teachers, strengthened our practices and awakened our inner yogis.

Here are some photos of our days in Shella village and practicing yoga in this lovely, unique paradise.
