Yoga and Hiking Retreat Drakensberg
Time & Location
About The Event
Time to recharge in nature! Hiking through majestic mountain scenery, inspiring and energising yoga sessions and making space for more peace and quiet.
We will stay at the 4-star Montusi Mountain Lodge in the northern Drakensberg, with incredible views of the impressive Amphitheatre in the background. On Saturday, we will set off on a day hike, crossing mountain streams, waterfalls, indigenous forests and grasslands. Around noon we will stop for a well-deserved lunch break with the best views imaginable. On Sunday you can either rest or join us on 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.
Montusi Mountain Lodge is a 4-star venue set on 1000 hectres of rehabilitated farm land in the northern Drakensberg. We will be staying in one of the 16 spacious, tastefully decorated, individual suites which are among the most luxurious in the area. Each free-standing suite is uniquely decorated and has spectacular views of the escarpment.
