Relax at your camp and enjoy the 100 resident hippos from your veranda. There are no boundaries or fences in this camp. This is the richest game viewing sections of the entire Maasai Mara. Many documentaries have been filmed here. Also, please note that we are staying in a conservancy and have access to land that the general public cannon be on. The animals can…of course.

I have been teaching group classes in Gentle Yoga, Hatha, and Vinyasa since 2013.

 

I believe yoga should be a joyful, healing and fun experience.  My practice is an exploration of heart and soul encouraging self-healing throughout a lifetime. I enjoy making the practice of yoga accessible and relatable for all. My hope is to empower you to express the best version of yourself.
