Dance, drum and yoga instruction are offered Monday - Friday, barring travel days. With the guidance of Abdoulaye, dance and drum classes are taught by famous local teachers of the popular performance groups such as Ballet De Matam, Les Ballet Africains, and Ballet Djoliba. Yoga is taught by the lovely Luna Delgado-Dold (U.S.A.) who is considered a warm, caring and very well-versed instructor with over 25-years of experience. You have the weekends free to relax on the warm, sandy beaches of Roume Island or to take some optional extra cost travel excursions to the capital city Conarky for our Fougou Fougou Faga Faga day excursion and/or through Guinea's beautiful countryside to a smaller city named Kindia for a weekend excursion. In Kindia there are amazing markets where you can purchase local goods of hand dyed fabrics, hand made baskets, jewelry and more! Just soaking in the atmosphere around you no matter what you decide for your weekend is a real treat. Please see 'store' for extra weekend excursions. Experienced guides will be with us for all extra excursions. We provide shuttle to and from the airport with overnight stays at Abdoulaye's home in Conakry upon arrival and departure.
