One Mango Tree at Yoga Within

One Mango Tree yoga products in the Ugandananda Yoga Banda at Yoga Within

Yoga Within is a beautiful studio in Munyonyo, a community nestled on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kampala, Uganda. Kevin and Gavin, the studio owners and both teachers themselves, created a truly peaceful space and a thriving yoga community. I started teaching yoga classes at their studio upon moving to Kampala, and was thrilled when Kevin approached me about equipping their studio with yoga props. Yoga Within was the site of a month-long, 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training course in April. One Mango Tree provided bolsters, meditation cushions, large cushion covers and eye pillows to outfit the studio for their training and growing classes. The meditation cushions and eye pillows will be available for sale in the US in June, so stay tuned! They promise to sell out quickly.

If you find yourself in Kampala, please be sure to stop by the studio for a class. Sunday mornings are my favorite, followed by tea and treats and then an afternoon of reading and swimming at Speke Munyonyo, which is only a short walk down the road.

Recognized as one of the finest Yoga retreats in the world, sivanandabahamas is dedicated to promoting the authentic spiritual tradition of Yoga, in an environment normally associated with an exclusive star hotel. We endeavour to embody the spiritual tradition of Athithi devo Bhava (serving the Guest as an embodiment of the Divine) and the staff at sivanandabahamas are trying to practice all facets of Yoga in their daily lives. At sivanandabahamas, you get a unique insight into Yoga, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or have practiced for many years.

sivanandabahamas is situated in bahamas where the emphasis is to live an ashram style life (daily yoga, meditation sessions, chanting classes, organic vegetarian food, no alcohol, community service, farming etc.) in private, serene and "simply" luxurious accommodation and facilities. In a typical Yoga Retreat, guests practice different facets of Yoga - for physical strength, balance and flexibility, for physiological & therapeutic benefits and if they are interested, for pursuing a spiritual path through various types of meditation.
