Consciousness and Conservation


Campi ya Kanzi, in partnership with Modo Yoga NYC + Moksha Montreal would like to officially announce... 

If you are searching for the African safari of your dreams while deepening your yoga practice and making a difference for the local community, THIS is the Yoga Safari for you! 

Over the last year, Modo Yoga NYC and Moksha Montreal have been actively engaged in supporting the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. The decision has been made to offer a yoga safari to further connect the yoga communities of Modo and Moksha, to the work of MWCT - integrating yoga, consciousness, and conservation into a yoga experience like no other. 


You will be hosted at a beautiful home in the bush. Luca and Antonella, the founders, and the Maasai (who are the landlords of this paradise) will be your hosts. All activities will be tailor made, from classic game drives in many different habitats, to lovely game walks with a Maasai guide and tracker.

Itinerary

All mornings of the yoga safari will start with an optional silent meditation. Daily morning and evening yoga classes will be led by Modo Yoga NYC and Moksha Yoga Montreal co-founders Becca Foon, Guillaume Brun, and Dina Tsouluhas. Together they will be teaching a range of classes including Modo (a dynamic system of postures intended to open, strengthen, and detoxify the entire body), Modo Flow (rooted in the Modo sequence linked together with vinyassa flows), Yang/Yin (a challenging Modo flow style followed by an extended floor series to fully relax your body), and Yin (poses are held for 3-5 minutes, stretching deep muscle tissue and fascia).

During this week we will focus on methods to help us sustain our practice while deepening our intentions. Through yoga we will be connecting to different ways of exploring ourselves and seeing the world around us, while cultivating a dialogue around yoga, consciousness, and sustainable development.

  1. Hi there! Great article you have, I would also want to share my thoughts that Meditation indeed has positive effects not only in the body but also in the mind, a total holistic wellness that brings us to know our inner-self better. It gives us a peace of mind that helps us have a much better perception about our lives.

    Our advocacy is to promote the positive effects of meditation, yoga and inner wellness.
