The best yoga classes are those that allow you to completely escape from the noise of daily life and switch off. So, when we heard that Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel was offering classes on top of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, we had to find out more…
The newly introduced Wellness Programme at Librisa, a yoga studio in the Mount Nelson’s Librisa Spa, is offering yogis (both experienced and newcomers) the opportunity to join a truly unique yoga experience, where an indoor studio is traded in for fynbos and panoramic, open-air views of the city bowl and the rising sun.
Above and beyond
The Table Mountain Yoga Experience is something truly unique, offering yogis a memorable experience far beyond the regular chants and postures, where the journey is as breathtaking as the practice.
Guests are invited to meet at the hotel at 7am. After a luxury trip to the cableway station, you’ll take an exhilarating cable-car ride to the top, where the yoga session will commence. While watching the twinkling lights of the city slowly being replaced by a warm sunrise, breath in the crisp morning air, and stretch and bend into poses guided by top-notch instructors.
After the session, you’ll be able to refuel with a cup of tea and a delectable selection of snacks before being transported back to the hotel, and back to reality.
Since this is such a sought-after activity, you’ll need to book in advance and arrive early on the day. There’s hardly a better way to stick your head in the clouds…
