with Jessica and Jack Weaver from The Shanti Space
A luxurious yoga and meditation retreat in Lamu, Kenya.
11th – 17th January 2019
Let the waves wash over you at this inspiring secluded paradise this coming January 2019. Feel yourself held in a restorative space at the beautiful Kusini House allowing you to shed your winter layers and awaken your mind, body and soul for 2019. Our daily practices will include Hatha, Yin Yoga and Qi Gong to become more embodied and present with life. Using breath-work, guided meditation and the gentle sounds of Tibetan Singing Bowls, drop into deeper states of relaxation to bring clarity and new energy for the year ahead.
Jessica began exploring yoga 17 years ago and over the years it has become an essential part of her life journey and much more than a physical practice. Feeling stressed and off-course in 2011 she bowed out of the corporate world to explore her creativity, yoga and meditation while taking the journey from her head to her heart.
After illness gave him a kick up the backside, he found himself on the path of the healing artist. After experiencing the transformational healing benefits of Acupuncture he went on to study at The International College of Oriental Medicine, regarded as a leader in its field, where he was awarded first class honours. As a classical acupuncturist Jack practices Five Element, TCM and Stems and Branches acupuncture, working with life cycles, rhythms and birth energies to restore health and well-being.
