Full Description

It s time to take a healthy, eco-friendly tropical escape in paradise. We welcome you for stress relief, balancing or just tropical adventure in Mafia Island Marine Park, Tanzania! Our customized flexi-date retreat in Mafia Island is the perfect opportunity to find deep relaxation and quiet as well adventure and exploring the diverse marine life and Swahili culture of the island. We invite you to switch off your phones, leave your laptops behind and enjoy few days of peace and quiet. An ideal retreat recipe to reinvigorate your mind, body and spirit through a combination of yoga, meditation, healthy food, excursions, and relaxation. We will help you relax, re-energize and send you home sparkling with a smile :).

Who is it for:

Anyone interested in more personalized attention to distress from daily routine, gain its balance back and reconnect with nature through yoga, meditation, breathing techniques, massage while surrounded by beautiful and soothing elements of nature in Mafia Marine Park Island. If you are looking for a digital detox, being close to the sea, discover the rich Swahili culture and explore marine life then this is for you. No previous experience in yoga required.

Our retreats accommodate any level of yogic experience, and are designed for anyone looking to unwind and take a breather from life’s stresses. In Swahili, "pumzi" means "breath" and "pumzika" means "relax". In other words the root of relaxation is breath.

Through gentle yogic flow, pranayama and meditation, you will enter into a natural rhythm of regeneration and balance, much like the lunar pattern of Mafia’s tides. The daily practice during the retreat will develop and refine your inner awareness, with a focus on letting go through both movement and stillness.

Pole Pole’s intrinsically tranquil environment, complemented by healthy meals designed to nourish your being, will put you in the perfect space for attuning to your mind and body’s needs. Our schedule encourages personal time for exploring Mafia’s underwater wonder world, or indulging in one of Leila’s therapeutic Thai massages.

The program…

We offer three-day or five-day retreats at Pole Pole with a possibility to extend. A typical day will usually include two yoga sessions, as well as meditation, kriya, pranayama, mandala beach meditation, yogic relaxation, and excursions … All supplemented by delicious healthful food and herbal infusions, plus plenty of scope for your own exploration of the island.

Our intention is to enable exploration, balance and reconnection with the self. In harmony with the elements of nature, Pole Pole provides a sacred space to slow down, calm the mind, and lighten your heart by being in the moment.
