About The Event
We will stay at the stunning Wits End resort in the Monks Cowl area with views of the mountains all around us. On Saturday, we will set off on a day hike, passing mountain streams, indigenous forests and eventually reaching the contour path at around 2100 meters of altitude. We will have a well deserved lunch break with the best view imaginable. You will literally feel like you are on top of the whole world.
Steven Heyman from Yoga Works will teach two yoga sessions daily (a stronger practice in the mornings and a more relaxing session in the evenings). The yoga sessions are accessible for all levels even if you are new to yoga. Steven's classes are fun and playful and this is really what this weekend is all about - take a well deserved break, spend some time to connect with nature, with others and with ourselves, and keep a bit of that “helicopter view” we have when standing op top of the mountain.
Activities: yoga (mornings before breakfast, evenings before dinner), hiking (Saturday most of the day and a shorter optional hike Sunday morning) - all activities are optional
