Welcome to an African Dream

Yoga & Safari Retreat


 booking now


6-13 October 2019- sold out


13-20 October 2019

Join me for a 7 day Yoga and Safari retreat at Elephant Rock Private Luxury Lodge in Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve, South Africa. 


As many of you will know I call South Africa my second home. It is an incredible and diverse country that has a special place in my heart. It is a place that makes your soul happy and humbles you as a human in ways that cannot be explained with words.


On my most recent Retreat to South Africa I was reminded as a yoga teacher and as an individual that nature teaches us all we need to know about life, harmony, balance and strength. 


The importance of conservation of wild animals and the natural beauty of the reserve allow us to have a deeper connection to nature and through it to ourselves. As you meditate and practice yoga with the sun rising and capure those special moments of game viewing on our daily safaris you become humbled by the beauty of the natural world.

The aim of the retreat is to switch off from the rat race and the constant noise of the city, immerse yourself fully in the wilderness and to learn to come back to those moments through yoga and meditation.



Our home for the week will be Elephant Rock Lodge- it is a beautiful boutique Luxury lodge which can only accommodate a maximum of 10 guests.


 When you arrive you are greeted with a handshake and you leave with a hug, they really make you feel like you are part of the family. 


I have been returning there since 2015 and I love it each time. It is located on a hill overlooking a water hole where Elephants often come to drink and play in the water. The lodge will be booked by us exclusively.


With no tv's, no radio, no newspapers and wifi only available in a designated spot- you can really escape the rat race and switch off from the outside world.

The sun deck will become our Yoga Shala as we practice and meditate under the African sky.
