RISE – Enchanting African Yoga Retreat, Watamu Treehouse, Kenya

March 18 - March 24


“Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same.

But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it?” 
From breathtaking sunsets, sunrises, tropical blue waters, enchanting full moons and a sky full of stars you feel like you are in space – Africa truly has magic, and that is just the location.


Charlie Morgan and Ottilie Wellness are bursting to offer you this retreat. A chance to feel alive, appreciate natural beauty, gain insight and feel connected, feed your body with nutritious fresh food, and explore the wondrous mind-body benefits of yoga in nature, deepening your practice and opening you up to a new way of living deeply.

 “Surely, of all the wonders of the world, the horizon is the greatest”Freya Stark

There is nothing quite like the indescribable beauty of an African sunrise. The sun rises like a flower opening, giving light to the day and our goal for this week is to give you time and space, to open and RISE. The African skies exhibit a wonderful phenomenon that connect to your soul and providing the power of life and endless gratitude.
Also, being a treehouse this location is high – perfect for rising up, being on top and seeing what lies ahead.

• move from a lower position to a higher one; come or go up.
• an upward movement; an instance of rising.

“Alone we stand, together we RISE”

Samantha Warner – Founder of Ottilie Wellness
Having travelled the globe since she was six months old, Sam knows a beautiful location when she sees one. With family in Kenya it has always been a dream to share the African magic with as many people as she can. The chance to curate the RISE Yoga Retreat was one not to be missed and Sam is thrilled to be collaborating with the inspirational Charlie Morgan Yoga. Beyond excited doesn’t describe it!

The aim of an Ottilie Retreat is to collaborate with inspirational yoga teachers, caterers with a passion for delicious and healthy food and introduce people to incredible locations.

Alongside this, Ottilie want to provide space to connect, away from the pulls of daily life, giving you a chance for self-care, to feel inspired and most of all know that you have the power to RISE.

Sam wants your stay to be a life-changing experience you share with similar souls.

We want you to enjoy this week to the fullest life changing experience you can, therefore, it is up to you, whether you want to join for walks or take a nap, sit by the pool, swim in the ocean or read a good book. We recommend that you attend all the yoga classes to get the most from the week but if you feel your body needs a break we respect this. The RISE African Yoga Retreat is time for you, your self-care and chance to embrace the richness life has to offer.

This retreat is for all levels of yoga, including beginners.
If you have any further questions about the retreat please do contact Sam on 07795 188211 or email 

Full details of what to bring and booking treatments will be sent nearer the time after your booking.

We hope you can RISE with us on this amazing adventure!
