Where better to get your downward dog on than at a beautiful seaside nature reserve? De Hoop Nature Reserve in the Overberg is known for its secluded diamond-in-the-rough destination, where surrounding sand dunes and tufts of green make it a peaceful escape for any occasion. If long walks on the beach and magical bike rides through nature aren’t relaxing enough, then join yoga specialist Kate Ball for a weekend of rejuvenation and blissful well-being, with a side helping of comfort.
The yoga sessions take place at the historic De Hoop Collection’s Melkkamer, where, after a long yoga-filled day, you’ll get to rest your minds and bodies in the beautiful old-world accommodation. All meals are catered for, and feature a range of wholesome and nutritious dishes made using organic, locally sourced ingredients.
Says Kate: “Yoga-nature therapy does powerful work to restore balance, so join me in this beautiful, pristine and scenic setting to deepen your yoga practice. All levels of practitioners are welcome. The focus is on a mixture of vinyasa and yin each day, and it will leave you feeling peaceful, energised and inspired.”
Kate, who trained in vinyasa and forrest yoga, has been teaching since 2007 (in the USA and India, and locally at her studio YogaSpirit in Constantia), so she is perfectly positioned to help you get the most of out of each stretch and bend.
It’s a beautiful marriage of nature and self-reflection, sure to give you all the right feels.
