Nairobi and Lewa downs

We’re offered this “once in a lifetime” destination for the first time in 2024, selling out 4 retreats with most enrollments almost 2 years in advance.

We are VERY excited to announce that we are returnning in 2026 with 4 groups led by Jurian Hughes and David Wallace, Deb Kern, Jenn Wooten & Laura Forsyth.  With space for just 22-24 per retreat, we expect these to fill quickly!  Please click the individual dates / teachers in the balck boxes to see what is still available.

This adventure requires 11-12 days and will take you to Nairobi, Kenya via NYC or a European hub. We’ll spend our first 2 nights In Nairobi, complete with a visit to a giraffe education center, Karen Blixen Museum and Artists co-op before heading to our private retreat property in the Lewa Downs Conservancy. There, we’ll experience 7 days / 6 nights at one of Kenya’s most private wildlife and environmental conservation projects. Renown for its conservation of the endangered rhino, Lewa is also home to the big 5 and more.  Lions, giraffes, leopards, buffalo, the endandered Grevy Zebra, over 400 migratory elephant, and so much more.

Unlike the bigger safari lodges and camps in the south, (where you might pack up every couple days to go to another camp and share drives with many other tourists), at our privately owned property, we’ll be offered the most up close and personal, intimate experience of this precious ecosystem. With our expert Maasai guides, we’ll explore via vehicle, foot, and optional horse and camel back.  And since this is a private property, we aren’t confined to our vehicles alongside all the other visitors.  Here we are able to exit out vehicles and have a more intimate experience of the landscape.

This adventure has been planned with care and with partners whose expertise is Kenya, who are in direct personal relationship with the owners of this special property, and who can provide the white glove service needed for such an undertaking. This includes their helping us manage participant needs related to flights and visas, providing private drivers and guides each day from the moment we arrive in Nairobi, to the moment we check in for our return flights home, and arranging the smaller inland flights to / from Nairobi to our safari home in Lewa Downs.

All is included from the time you land in Nairobi (minus a couple meals in Nairobi) — including drivers, guides, charter flights, farm to table meals, daily game drives, sundowners, possible horse or camel riding, and of course, daily yoga with your teacher.


The Kenya trip with One Yoga Global exceeded all expectations — everything about the quality of the guides, accommodations, and meals blew me away! We can’t stop talking about all the amazing experiences we had in one week. It was truly remarkable. If you’re considering participating in this retreat, don’t hesitate, just do it. You won’t regret it!

In a word, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy trip was TRANSFORMATIVE. The vastness of the land, the animals and the hearts of the people will be with me forever. Since I arrived home, all my dreams have been filled with the experiences of my short, sweet taste of Kenya.
