About The Event
Take yourself on a journey - hiking through majestic mountain scenery, inspiring and energising yoga sessions and making space for more peace and quiet.
We will stay at the Wits End resort in the Monks Cowl area with incredible 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. On Sunday we have planned a shorter hike with a (optional) swim in a fresh mountain stream.
Steven Heyman from Yoga Works will be your guide on this retreat and will bring you 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. The yoga 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 gain a different perspective when standing op top of the mountain.
