Yoga lifts your state of mind and the state of your body. It makes you feel good, it’s relaxing, it’s energizing, and it’s strengthening. Yoga enhances your experience of life, more peace of mind, better health, more enthusiasm for life, and an ever-growing sense of well-being.

The retreat starts on Friday at 18:30 with an introduction and ‘meet-and-greet’ session, followed by dinner at 19:00 and from 20:00 to 21:00 yoga restoratives to allow for a good night’s sleep.

Breakfast on Saturday at 7:00 followed by a two-hour asana practice at 8:30, a half-hour tea break, and another two-hour asana practice. Lunch is served at 13:00 followed by some free time to read a book, have a swim, or rest and restore.

A guide will take the participants out into nature for a lovely two-hour hike in the afternoon. At 19:00, dinner is served and from 20:00 to 21:00 everyone is back in the yoga room for yoga restoratives, pranayama and relaxation techniques.

Sunday breakfast is at 07:00 followed by 1.5-hours of restorative yoga and pranayama at 08:30, a tea break at 10:00, and a final two-hour asana practice at 10:30. The retreat ends with lunch from 13:00 to 14:00.


No previous experience necessary. All ages over 18 are welcome.

The ‘other halves’ are welcome, there are many activities available in Cintsa for partners who do not partake in the yoga retreat; from hiking, birding, beach activities, and photography to mountain biking. Or just to relax, read a book and take in the stunning ocean views!

The retreats are popular so please book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Included excursions

Retreat location

The quaint little seaside village of Cintsa (or Chintsa), lies just 45 kilometers northeast of East London. This part of the coast is reminiscent of all things wild, and the beauty of the surroundings is the reason so many seek out this peaceful spot. A little piece of paradise, Cintsa offers a haven in a tranquil setting, surrounded by lush indigenous forest and thicket, and amazing birdlife.

The lagoon predominates, and sand dunes and a wonderfully long stretch of beach, entice one to stay. Other highlights include canoe rides up the river at high tide, fishing, a walk on the beach to Cintsa East village (deli, coffee shop, massage, etc), or a ten-minute drive to the Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve, where you can see rhino, giraffe, zebra and a variety of buck. You can gain insight into how craft beer is made and produced at Emeraldvale Brewery or join African Heartland Journeys Surf School and learn to surf.
