Check-out Time:

Stanford Village Retreat is one of the original dwellings in the sleepy village; it is warm and welcoming, with wooden floors and shutters. A beautiful closed combustion fireplace in the lounge forms the warm heart of the house, the space for morning yoga and evening meditation. High ceilings, wooden beams, and original wooden floors lend a traditional coziness that’ll have you putting your feet up, country style, in no time.

Accommodation includes a comfortable single or double room with private bathroom facilities, or the vast loft suite with its spacious en-suite bathroom with claw foot tub and power shower. As you relax into the gentle village rhythms here, time slows down and loses its insistence. Undisturbed hours can be whiled away in the lush garden; a private and secure haven to picnic among the fruit trees, veggie patch, and prolific lavender bushes.

Morning sun greets the back verandah, making this a delightful spot in which to start the day. In the late afternoons, the front ‘stoep’ is a perfect spot for tea. The view spills onto quiet roads and dusty lanes, affording a glimpse of authentic Stanford life passing by; a restful joy to savor.


Upon booking, the specifics of your retreat will be planned via a Skype call according to your personal needs, interests, preferences, and Tasha's recommendations. Each day incorporates either a morning or afternoon session with Tasha, engaged in one of the following:

  • Yogic teachings (yoga philosophy / energetic anatomy)
  • Yogic practice (breathwork / cleansing practices / pranic practices)
  • Meditation instruction and practice (traditional Buddhist meditation and mindfulness)
  • Conscious breathing (using the breath to access visionary states of consciousness for healing and transformation)
  • Making ceremony (empowering intention, awareness, and release of outworn ways of being)
  • Yoga Nidra (deep guided relaxation)
  • Nature immersion (cleansing or meditative practices in wild nature: mountains, beaches, waterfall pools)
  • Land art (creating in nature with found natural materials)
  • Intuitive art (process art to access the sub-conscious and super-conscious)
  • Intuitive movement / free dance (spontaneous expression and embodiment)
  • Natural health talk (guidance on natural living, natural eating, and natural medicine)
  • Herbal medicine (individual guidance on appropriate treatment and herbal medicine making)
  • Vibrational medicine (individual guidance on appropriate treatment and vibrational medicine making)
  • Bio energy treatment (supporting free flow in pranic pathways and energy centers for healing, insight, and release)
  • Bio energy practices (learning techniques for self-care to release, regulate, and energize pranic flow)
  • Plant medicine and micro-dosing talk (information and guidance around working with teacher plants)

The other morning or afternoon session will be devoted to self study. You will be given practices to complete alone; allowing for valuable time in silence and solitude, fostering awareness and intimacy with yourself. This encourages self support and confidence; building the resources needed to carry healthy attitudes and practices home with you on departure.

Practices include:

  • Guided journaling
  • Contemplation
  • Silent meditation
  • Walking meditation
  • Grounding in nature / sun bathing
  • Yogic practice (breathwork / cleansing practices / pranic practices)
  • Gratitude practice
  • Ceremony and intention
  • Karma yoga (selfless service)

As far as possible, the fruit, vegetables, and herbs used are sourced locally and organically, and much of it is grown, chemical-free on site in the garden. The quality, freshness, and life force in the produce used makes a vast difference to the depth and power of the cleansing / healing processes.

All programs offer excellent, highly accessible nutrition and rest the often overloaded digestive system, allowing the body to shift into healing and repair mode. Depending on the length of your stay, you may experience a reduction in inflammation (the precursor to all disease), increased energy, natural weight loss, the eradication of minor health complaints (eg. mucus conditions, skin complaints, joint stiffness), and a noticeable improvement in more major ones.

Probiotic and fermented foods restore gut health, often a factor in chronic illness or fatigue. Light, easily digested meals may also support quietness and clarity of mind making this the ideal nourishment for the retreat space. Meals are made with great skill, care, mindfulness and love, under the guidance of a qualified nutritionist.

If you would like to receive instruction on food preparation in order to support the continuation of healthy eating and cleansing practices on your return home, this is possible. Water fasting or dry fasting support is available on request.

Several options are available for your retreat, usually used in combination:


This option is excellent for detox, radical physical reset; treating chronic illness and inflammation. This includes three cold pressed juices at intervals throughout the day, as well as herbal, food, and vitamin supplements tailored to your nutritional / health and healing needs.

wheat grass, aloe, and rejuvelac are grown / wild harvested / self made by Tasha, your facilitator. Post juice cleanse raw food is served for a time for the transition out of a juice cleanse can be challenging, and its an important part of the process to move through gently and with awareness.


This option is high in life force and rich in enzymes for better digestion and absorption. Meals are served three times a day, using large amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables, and activated seeds, nuts, and grains.

Also offered are special creations such as pro-biotic nut cheeses and whole seed crackers dehydrated at a low heat to keep digestive enzymes intact. Healthy desserts are made with natural unrefined sweeteners such as dates and raw honey, which have wonderful health benefits.


This option will be supporting acid / alkaline balance of your body, your digestive health, and your hormonal balance on an ongoing basis.
