“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.

YOUR RETREAT LOCATION – WATAMU TREEHOUSE, KENYA

Watamu Treehouse is a truly unique retreat centre situated on the nicest and quietest part of Watamu Beach – a beautiful stretch of white sand and warm blue water on the Kenya Coast.

Staying at Treehouse is unlike any other Coastal house or hotel. Watamu Treehouse has featured prominently in social media and in local and international press. In 2015 Harper’s Bazaar UK listed Treehouse first in their feature “THE WORLD’S BEST TREEHOUSE HOTELS”. And in 2016, the Telegraph Travel included Treehouse amongst their “BEST HOTELS IN KENYA”. The “Treehouse Effect” of a peaceful restful break combines: beautiful and unique accommodation. Healthy and fresh meals. Yoga and treatments with a view, beach and adventures in nature.

YOGA AT THE TREEHOUSE

Watamu Treehouse is the perfect place for relaxing and energizing yoga. In harmony with the elements, nature is a huge part of this RISE African Yoga Retreat.

The very top floor of Treehouse has a 360-Degree Yoga Room – purpose built for yoga at the highest point in Watamu. Literally salute the sun – hence the retreat theme RISE. You are always surrounded by the sun, the sea, the forest, this is truly a unique offering experienced nowhere else in the world. Other areas you will experience your yoga session during this week could be on the exposed sandbars, in the forest , on paddle boards with the sunrise, sunset , or moonrise – there are endless places to do yoga in nature.

YOUR HOST
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.

LAST WORDS…
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.
