ABOUT THE RETREAT
We would love to invite you to join us for 4 days of Yoga and Safari at the Elephant Rock Lodge in Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve and 3 days of Yoga and Hiking at Quambiti Mountain Lodge in the Drakensberg mountains.
South Africa is an incredible and diverse country that has a special place in our hearts. It is a place that makes your soul happy and humbles you as a human in ways that cannot be explained with words.
Nature teaches us all we need to know about life, harmony, balance and strenght, and from that the idea of nature and yoga retreat slowly started to develop.
The importance of conservation of wild animals and the natural beauty of the reserve allow us to have a deeper connection to nature and through it to ourselves. As you meditate and practice yoga with the sun rising and capure those special moments of game viewing on our daily safaris you become humbled by the beauty of the natural world.
The aim of the retreat is to switch off from the rat race and the constant noise of the city, immerse yourself fully in the wilderness and to learn to come back to those moments through yoga and meditation.
Our home for 4 days will be Elephant Rock Lodge - it is a beautiful boutique lodge which can only accommodate a maximum of 10 guests. When you arrive you are greeted with a handshake and you leave with a hug, they really make you feel like you are part of the family. Nadia has been returning there since 2015 and we love it each time we stay at the lodge. It is located on a hill overlooking a water hole where Elephants often come to drink and play in the water. The lodge will be booked by us exclusively. With no tv's, no radio, no newspapers and wifi only available in a designated spot- you can really escape the rat race and switch off from the outside world.
The sun deck will become our Yoga Shala as we practice and meditate under the African sky.
For a further 3 days our home will be Quambiti Mountain Lodge in the stunning Drakensberg Mountains. This peaceful, idillic locations allows use to practice Yoga before the most incredible mountainous views, surrounded by horses, zebras and more. There is a large swimming pool and luxury rooms, not to mention the wonderful food.
