About The Event
Swap the city for a weekend in the spectacular mountain scenery of the Drakensberg mountains. We will lodge in style at the famous Cathedral Peak Hotel and enjoy daily mountain hikes and yoga sessions.
This retreat includes a two night stay in the Cathedral Peak Hotel with views of the majestic mountains all around us. On Saturday, we will set off on an epic day hike, passing mountain streams, indigenous forests and a great lunch spot high up in the mountains. On Sunday we will go on a short and easy hike to a waterfall nearby where we can swim in the rock pools.
Steven Heyman from Yoga Works will teach two yoga sessions daily (a dynamic 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 a longer day hike and on Sunday a short morning hike), meditation, swimming
