Yoga and Hiking Adventure South Africa

Imagine a week of nurturing your body and soul, surrounded by the most breathtaking landscapes. Table Mountain is believed to be one of the planet’s 12 main energy centers that radiate spiritual energy. It embodies the Earth element, sending out nurturing, grounding energy, and forming the root of your well-being. Here is where we'll start our journey. Energized by this beautiful mountain and its surrounding beaches, you'll take 4x4 vehicles with rooftop tents into the Cederberg mountains. Here you'll get to practice yoga amongst ancient rock formations and bushman paintings (up to 8000 years old!), climb up to several cascading waterfalls, and fall asleep while gazing at the milky way. Go off the beaten track, get back in touch with nature and discover the secrets of the Western Cape.

In Cape Town you'll be staying at Khaya Guesthouse, an oasis by the beach. Lush palm trees, a pool, outdoor hot tub, fireplace, BBQ area and hammocks make this place complete.

In Cederberg there's no better way to experience it's raw energy, than perched up high in a rooftop tent. Fall asleep looking up at the milky way and wake up to the gentle glow of the sunrise on your face, while still cuddles up in your blanket.

Program

Day 1

Everyone is welcome from 1 pm at Khaya Guesthouse. You'll have time to chill in the garden, have a swim, and get to know each other. You'll have an early braai (BBQ) and before bed there's restorative yoga by candlelight.

Day 2

The day starts at the Kirstenbosch botanical gardens, where's you'll practice yoga in the field with Table Mountain as your backdrop. After yoga you climb the skeleton gorge until you reach a reservoir halfway up the mountain, where you can have a swim. The route takes you down to the vineyards of Constantia, where there's an optional wine tasting at Beau Constantia before driving home. Back at Khaya you'll do a gentle stretch to help with sore muscles after the hike, and then have dinner and relax.

Day 3

After a morning yoga session on Big Bay beach, you load the 4x4 vehicles and start driving towards the Cederberg Mountains. you will set up camp at Moon River Bushcamp and if time allows, have a dip in the private rock pools. You'll end the evening with a sunset yoga session overlooking the valley.

Day 4

You will start the day with yoga and a swim in the rock pools. The journey continues to the Stadsdaal Grotte where you can walk around beautiful rock formations and admire ancient cavemen paintings. When you’ve seen enough, you'll go to the next campsite and make a potjiekos (traditional South African meal cooked over an open fire). If time allows, you'll have an evening yoga session.

Day 5

You'll ease into the day with a wake-up yoga flow. With your muscles all warmed up, we'll start your hike to the Maltese Cross (3 hrs roundtrip). After visiting this spectacular 30 meter high rock pillar you'll reward yourself at Cederberg wines with an optional wine or beer tasting. There's juice available if you'd rather not drink alcohol. Back at the campsite you'll take a dip in the river and have a little stretch before bed.

Day 6

A quick morning yoga flow will jump start your day, before hiking to Algeria Waterfall. After completing the hike you will start driving back towards Khaya Guesthouse. On the way back you'll make a stop by a secret waterfall for lunch and a swim. Back at Khaya the wood fire pizza oven is already burning, in anticipation of a night of making your own pizzas. First though, there's an optional sunset yoga at Blouberg beach (if not too windy).

Day 7

You'll reflect on the week with a final morning yoga session. Whoever would like to extend their stay is more than welcome to do so.

Retreat location

Whenever someone mentions Cape Town, you'll see their eyes light up. A city dwarfed by dramatic, energy epicenter Table Mountain, surrounded by endless beaches and ocean. The fauna is unique to the Western Cape and you'll see many plants and flowers you've never even heard of before. It's easy to fall in love with.

Still largely unspoilt by tourism, the Cederberg Mountains have a magical feel to them. It's perfectly silent until you slow down your breathing and really start listening. Only then you'll hear the slight rustle of a cape fox scurrying past, the rippling flow of a distant waterfall, or the slight breeze moving the desert sand.
