2020 Yoga Retreat in Africa - Yogachelan

Kenya is the home of the Safari. The lure of Kenya has always been the same, the sheer variety of landscape, wildlife, human cultures and experience. For over a hundred years Kenya has attracted adventurers and romantics from all over the globe. This has been the setting of some of history’s greatest adventure tales. This is the home of Out of Africa, a place where setting out on an adventure into the wilderness became an age old tradition. The spirit of the Safari lives on today. The romance of sundown drinks and of evenings around a campfire with the distant roar of a lion in the African night is found in Kenya. Everyone should have the opportunity once in their lifetime to stand on the great plains of the Masai Mara Serengeti to witness one of the last major migrations on planet earth. Mix this with two yoga sessions a day and the luxury accommodations of authentic Africa of days gone by, and you have more than hundreds of great images, but an experience of a lifetime.

The breathtaking scenery and views of East Africa offers the ideal environment for inspirational yoga practices.  Lynda emphasizes deep spaces of calm and connection with the land through mindful movement, meditation and pranayama, guided and inspired by the rich imagery of the natural wilderness.  Participants will wake each morning to a yoga practice that awakens and focuses the senses for their amazing day’s exploration and will close the evening with a practice for surrendering into balance and relaxation.

About the instructor: Lynda Kennedy

Lynda Kennedy - bioPracticing yoga since the early 70’s, Lynda taught her first class for a Parks and Recreation Department as part of a fitness program in 1974. She has years of practical experience and has worked with several different instructors.

Lynda is passionate about making yoga accessible to everyone, improving quality of life and sharing the health benefits of yoga. Helping her students figure out how to improve, work with or work around what ever it is that is keeping them from being as mobile and as healthy as they can be. Many students come to her for pre and post op yoga for their preparation or recovery from surgery on knees, hips, shoulders, etc. She has classes for those students with needs for modifications for their yoga practice, i.e., recovering from injuries, arthritis, extra weight, back issues, etc. She has developed a practice for Seniors,  called Mature Movers, focusing on the movements that improve quality of life as we age. There is a great demand for these classes as the Baby Boomers come of age. They are not interested in doing yoga from a chair and want a vibrant moving practice…just with some safe modifications. Power yoga is also a passion, keeping and improving our strength, flexibility, and of course enjoying some inversions.

In 2011, Lynda began volunteering with the Wenatchee Wellness Program which now offers an outreach Wellness Yoga Program in Chelan which Lynda teaches. The classes are held at the studio and are designed for cancer survivors, people living with illnesses, and caregivers.
