A Yoga Retreat At De Hoop Nature Reserve With Marianne Wiid

Sand-dune salutations.

The wonderfully secluded De Hoop Nature Reserve is known for its peaceful atmosphere and serene setting, so it’s no surprise that it’s a popular destination for weekend yoga retreats. Surrounded by wild Atlantic seas, untouched sand dunes and the towering mountains of the Overberg, there’s hardly a more ideal location to stretch and breathe away the stress of the city…

Peaceful practices

The August 2018 retreat will be led by Marianne Wiid, an iyengar instructor, who owns My Yoga Space studio in Hermanus and Stanford, and is known for her compassionate and caring teaching approach. As such, this retreat is the ideal getaway for yogis looking to broaden their practice in a beautiful setting. During the course of the weekend, attendees can expect a number of workshops, as well as sessions of pranayama, asanas, restorative yoga and sun salutations on the breathtakingly isolated Koppie Alleen dunes.

But there’s more…

When you’re not bending and breathing, enjoy all that this marvellous nature reserve has to offer: bird-watching along the vlei, marine walks along the shore at low tide, spa treatments to ease the muscles and relax, or simply stargazing at the clear night sky. All meals are included, and feature a healthy selection of expertly prepared vegetarian dishes, with the option to enjoy your lunch on a picnic outing. Then, when the day is over, rest your head in the comfort of one of the historically beautiful Melkkamer homestead houses.

It’s a beautiful marriage of nature and self-reflection, sure to give you all the right feels.
