If you have been longing for yoga, dancing, playing music, singing and enjoying kora music accompanied by the sound of crickets a starry night in Senegal, Jaliya Camp is here for you!

This retreat is a once-in-a-lifetime tapestry of experiences, including rhythms, dances, sights, smells, and colors of the West African culture, yoga and new year reflections with Sousou & Maher Cissoko.

From sunrise to sunset, from morning yoga to evening kora, there will be countless opportunities to learn, to enjoy, to move, groove and free your mind!

New Year’s Eve will be marked by a beautiful evening program of meditation to recalibrate, music to celebrate, singing and dancing to invigorate.

There is no better way to begin 2023 - so come begin it with us!


We will start our day before breakfast, with Sadhana (yoga/meditation) in the sunrise led by Sousou Cissoko (Radiant Body Yoga/Kundalini/Hatha).

We continue with a lovely breakfast buffet with coffee, tee, bread, omelette, porrige and fruits.

After breakfast we will do more yoga or dance for about one hour and let the West African music and joy flow into our bodies with live drums played by professional musicians. Dance sessions will be led by a talented dance teacher from the region.

After lunch you will have your own Ocean Time or time to discover the daily life in the village or, if you prefer, deepening in your your own creativity, composing, jamming and practicing.

The second session of the day takes place in the late afternoon, before sunset and dinner and will be a variation of music - kora and singing.

We will also offer kora meditation, storytelling and Q&A sessions for those who wants to know more about the very special Senegalese and Jaliya culture.

After dinner we will light the fire and enjoy music, evening concerts, jamming, singing and sharing together.

?For every participant we plant trees restore the mangrove in the Casamance (Tobor). Through this we want to give back to the nature and contribute to the restoring the forest cover and biodiversity, fix the soils and reduce coastal erosion. Thanks to large amounts of carbon dioxide being absorbed by the growing trees we want to be a part of the fight against climate change.?
