In the following we would like to give you a glimpse into a typical day on our Yoga Retreat by giving you an overview of what those days look like. Although we don’t want to make our schedule too rigid but rather keep it flexible dependent on the season, the interest of our guests and other external factors like the weather. But still we believe in a certain structure and want to give you an idea of what you can expect during our time together.

On our first day our guests arrive at about 1 pm. Our guide will welcome you at the meeting point and take you on a 4×4 adventure to the Lodge. Guests who come with their own (rental) car receive detailed directions to a meeting point.

At an additional cost, we can assist in organizing a private transfer, be it for example from OR Tambo International Airport,

Polokwane Airport or Hoedspruit.

After a warm welcome at the lodge, everyone is shown their accommodation. Then lunch is ready at the main area in the beautiful garden. In the afternoon we take a first stroll through the reserve, where we will find a nice spot to practice yoga asana, to stretch our bodies after the travels. Dinner is served in the lovely crafted common area of the lodge. On cold evenings the seating area by the firepla is very inviting to read a book, enjoy the company and warming up.

This is a little structure on how a typical day might look like:

6:00 | Morning Meditation

7:00 | Breakfast

8:00 | Morning activity: We go out for a walk or a game drive to explore the nature. Midway we move our body through a yoga asana practice.

12:00 | At around 12 o'clock we arrive back at the lodge.

13:00 | Lunchtime

14:00 | Time for yourself to relax, to enjoy the beautiful surrounding , to read a book or take a nap.

15:00 | Afternoon activity: We go out on another walk or drive into nature. Again we use the time out there to practice different aspects of yoga.

18:00 | Enjoy the sunset, relax in front of the fireplace and unwind after an eventful day.

19:00 | Dinnertime

On our drives and walks we learn more about the flora and fauna of the region, which is unique and diverse in the Soutpansberg region. Surrounded by this beautiful wilderness we use the time not only to explore nature but to practice the different aspects of yoga. The morning starts with a calming meditation while the birds start singing and the sun comes up. While out in the bush we practice yoga asana, combined with breathing exercises and relaxation. Through out the week there will be a red thread of yoga philosophy that weaves into our daily practices, where you might find some inspiration and learn more about yourself.

There is only one thing more amazing than practicing yoga, it is to practice yoga in such a stunning natural environment.
