In this retreat....
In this retreat we invite you to:
..... travel to the very root of your existence (earth),
.... heat up the flames that makes your soul shine (fire),
.... become so light that you can travel beyond your known possibilities (air)
.... allow the flow to take over and there is nothing but surrender (water).
And if this does not sound poetic enough, the retreat is hosted in beautiful South Africa, in the midst of nature, 45km out of Cape Town.

The retreat centre is located in beautiful nature, which means in free time you can make beautiful hikes, go surfing or mountainbiking. Out of energy? Just enjoy the ocean-view from the terrace, relax at the swimming pool, or read a book from our library.
In the evening there is a "Soul Special", aligned with the particular theme of that day. This can involve music, estatic dance, a campfire, storytelling or a solo-hike in moonlight...

The yoga sessions are crafted to fit the element of the according day. You will enjoy a variety of styles: hatha, vinyasa, restorative and yin yoga. Some experience with yoga comes in handy, but the classes can be adapted to your level.

Door het yogaweekend ben ik weer een beetje meer bij mezelf thuis gekomen en daar weet ik nu ook beter de rust te vinden. De prettige, warme sfeer, de vrijheid, de natuur en de fijne mensen hebben daar enorm aan bijgedragen.."
"Even stil staan en voelen, waar je normaal alsmaar door rent. Het is een mooi begin om te voelen wat je tegen houdt in je ontwikkeling en waar het vandaan komt en daar eens bij stil te staan".
