This holiday is the perfect combination of just the right amount of activities and relaxation, according to feedback we’ve received on previous yoga holidays. The resort hosting our yoga clients for the retreat is Karamba Resort; where the team is made up of a passionate group with enthusiasm to make Karamba a destination with soul offering comfort and delicious food, as you indulge in a friendly and warm atmosphere, surrounded by nature.
Their experience in the hospitality industry has led them to the belief that the “true traveler” likes authenticity and interaction with the locals without sacrificing comfort, good service and quality, and thus does not want to feel too much like a “tourist”. Karamba has been designed to fit to the needs of travelers.
Our guests find Karamba to be a comfortable, relaxing, warm and clean environment.
Each yoga class is an intelligent, creative and fun movement sequence with a strong focus on safe alignment and breath awareness incorporating fun and challenging transitions that will have you tap into your deep core, leaving your body toned, cleansed and purified from the inside out. Classes are suitable for all levels due to the playful nature of the instructor. Evening meditations bring the day to a relaxed end making you feel more present and aware.
