THE ROAD OF QUEENS RETREAT
7 Day Wellness & Yoga Retreat in Ivory Coast
The return of the Queens is inspired from the Road of Kings and Queens Festival, in order to remind ourself who we were before we were forced to leave the Continent, and follow the traces of the Feminine Crowned Heads of Ivory Coast and their regal wisdom.
Côte d'Ivoire is a stunner, shingled with starfish-studded sands, palm-tree forests and roads so orange they resemble strips of bronzing powder. This is a true tropical paradise, and a country that is striding towards economic progress – it's a nation that is fast modernising its lifestyle and culture, but managing to do so without losing its identity.
In the south, the Parc National de Taï hides secrets, species and nut-cracking chimps under the boughs of its trees, while the peaks and valleys of Man offer a highland climate, fresh air and fantastic hiking opportunities through tropical forests.
The beach resorts of low-key Assinie and arty Grand Bassam were made for weekend retreats from Abidjan, the capital in all but name, where lagoons wind their way between skyscrapers and cathedral spires pierce the blue heavens.
This retreat is a 7-day immersion in Assinie, the beautiful seaside resort on the Gulf of Guinea. Our hosts welcome you between land and sea for a stay of "back to basics". You will discover a region where the landscape is multicolored thanks to tropical forests and national parks.
A Yoga and Wellness Retreat where you will discover how to embody all your divine gifts and harness the strengths of every facet of your potential in your daily life and also in your relationships.
The aim of this voyage is to create new connections between the Diaspora and the Continent. It is important to know thyself, our history and to Sankofa (go back to our Roots). Not only like a tourist but like a person in search of truth and community, who wish to remember their royalty before they have been kidnapped and stolen from their land.
Enjoy daily sessions of SE yoga to develop your life force and harmonize with the 5 elements, wellness and African holistic health workshops with traditional healers and exclusive experiences to discover the Africa they never show you.
