Want to escape your everyday life?
Wake up to birdsong and the sound of the sea?

Yallah, join us on a retreat in the Gambia, more precisely on the beach in the small village of Sanyang.


Stretch your body, caress your soul and welcome the rising sun with yoga and meditation surrounded by white beaches, cows, colorful birds and the sea. The yoga is suitable for all levels. Due to the small group size, individual topics can be addressed wonderfully.


Enjoy an African breakfast and then spend the morning in the protected space that we create together in our workshops. This is perhaps your most precious time to get in touch with your desires and needs. You will encounter blockages that stand in the way and learn to dissolve them through loving acceptance and targeted exercises.


A delicious local lunch is followed by afternoons where you can simply do nothing, laze on the beach or go for a walk by the sea.


In the early evening, you can let off steam by learning the djembe drum or, if you already drum, trying out new rhythms. Alternatively, you can also learn African dancing instead of drumming. This ignites an enormous zest for life and fire in you, grounds you and is the most fun workout anyway.


After we have once again spoiled you with a delicious traditional meal, we will end the day quietly and on two evenings with a wonderful surprise.



“I feel infinite gratitude that you exist and what beautiful people you attract and connect. You yourself radiate such freedom and strength and at the same time you care warmly for the people around you. I have learned so much these days and wish you lots of strength and energy for everything that is yet to come! It’s so nice that you exist! See you next time! Inshallah!”


“Dear Lena ,

I am very happy to have experienced such a wonderful retreat in Morocco together with you and the other great girls. I learned during this trip that it is not bad to let go of things and try new things like yoga :).

I am grateful for all the beautiful moments and that you showed me a completely different Morocco than the one I got to know 20 years ago.
The people here are just so lovely and helpful and even if you don’t always speak the same language, you can tell from their friendly looks that you are welcome. All the encounters and experiences such as drinking tea with Sheriff at the campfire on the beach, sand boarding in the dunes, riding out together, as well as the trip with Mohamed to Paradise Valley, make our friendship even more valuable and make my heart glow.

Thank you for being an energetic woman with all your ideas and dreams and for having such a great man by your side. Together you are such a great, unbeatable team. Thank you for sharing your wonderful life with us so closely.

Love to you”

“Dear Lena, your coaching on the topic -saying no- touched me very much. You have a zest for life that inspires me again and again.

Pure motivation and passion. Kebba is a master drummer from The Gambia and has made his love of drumming his purpose in life. He lives most of the year in Germany, where he is known for his drumming workshops and performances. Together with his fellow drummers, he was able to build a center in The Gambia, which gives the youth in his country a future. Mama Limbo – Drumming and Dance School.





Our home for the week is the Mama Limbo Drumming and Dance School in Sanyang Beach. Two minutes walk from the beach and surrounded by a beautiful lagoon. The center, which so far consists of 7 rooms, a common room, a kitchen and a beautiful outdoor space, is the heart project of Kebba and his fellow campaigners who want to create a future for the youth abroad through hard work in their home country of The Gambia. Every month they put money aside to further develop Mama Limbo Drumming and Dance School in The Gambia. Mama Limbo is not just a center for cultural preservation. 30 percent of the income goes to the local hospital and orphanage.

This retreat is your gift to yourself and has the potential to change your life forever.

We can’t wait to meet you and spend an unforgettable time together.

From the heart, Kebba & Lena
