EXPLORE THE MAGICAL BEAUTY OF KENYA

Mixed Movements &
Dhow Adventure

FEBRUARY 20th - 26th, 2020

MOVE IN WATAMU

We’ll explore the natural wildlife and marine world of the Watamu coastline in Kenya. Revive your energy for 7 days with us. Stay in our beautiful Kenyan resort and spend one magical night in Tsavo East National Park. We will also enjoy the Mida Creek sunset and snacks as we sail on the magnificent Mida Dhow. 

The heart of Watamu is it’s laid-back attitude. It’s filled with hidden gems and little villages on the Kenyan Coast. A paradise where you can loosen-up whilst appreciating pearly beaches and lush tropical forests. Watamu is bursting with Swahili culture, and remains a sanctuary of happiness, peace and fresh energy. This adventure invites anybody who seeks time for themselves; to explore, move more, kick-back, and make friends.

The addition of mixed movements sessions will strengthen and energize your mind, body and soul. We will remind you how to let go again. We’ll move our bodies and admire unforgettable views of the crystal clear sea, indulge in a spa day and swim with the coral fish inside the reefs below us.

This is Therapy for the Soul and the rest will emerge as we go. Relax and enjoy the sunset over the horizon, delicious food and lots of good company. We’ll enjoy healthy, fresh and traditional Kenyan meals prepared by our very own Chef.

YOUR HOSTESS

SKYE KIMBERLEY MALLON

Skye is originally from South Africa and now practices in Kenya. She is passionate about connecting to people, exploring different ways to move the body with intention and establishing a connection to the heart and mind. She’s a wellness advocate who’s spent the last 6 years studying and practicing yoga, mixed movements, pilates, wellness and healing approaches. She’s also got a background in dance which she often draws from as inspiration in her classes. 

Skye shares a playful style through her mixed movements classes and incorporates synergistic methods and experience acquired through years of searching for the things in life that feed one’s soul. “Movement based practices and Yoga are therapy for my soul. I used to focus on trying to do everything all at once; things that stressed my body and striving to be perfect. It became impossible, exhausting and unhealthy. Mixed movements refreshed my perception, shifted my focus and changed my life forever. Yoga is the core of mixed movements and once I tried it my life changed entirely. Self-love and self-compassion are the key to make happiness constant in your life. Yoga helps you love yourself. It helped me heal physically, emotionally and mentally; caring for myself got me through some of life’s very tough journeys. Nothing will revitalise your energy more.”

I don’t know it all, but, I do know that doing the same thing again and again never ends well. Self-love and taking time to change things is what gets you places and I am ecstatic that I get to share this secret with you. I believe that emotional, spiritual and physical wellness builds mental resilience and allows you to establish a foundation to enjoy the rhythm of life on and off the mat. It’s about embracing your subconscious consciousness. Knowing how to feel within and building into the strength of your mind-body connection. Mixed movements connects the mind with the body, builds the strength of love in your hearts and allows you to express yourself through your natural ability to breathe and move. With every class, we begin to tell a story and make connections. Breaking through barriers is part of life and giving yourself time to heal and grow on the mat will then transfer off the mat. That’s the beauty of it…To go with the flow of life and explore. 

If you think you're going to love your time in Watamu, then you can extend your stay with us once the adventure is over to explore more.
