De Hoop Collection’s Nourish Retreat

Join South Africa’s yoga guru Marianne Wiid, together with her daughter Anya and friend Maria van Zyl, for a Nourish Retreat Weekend from Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May 2021 at De Hoop Collection’s Melkkamer in the pristine De Hoop Nature Reserve.

The Nourish Retreat offers an enriching and life-affirming yoga and nutritional experience. A yoga retreat where you can get back to basics and truly get away from it all - where you can connect with nature, disconnect from technology, deepen your yoga experience, soothe your soul, soak up the rejuvenating energies, quieten your mind and make time for your inner-self.

Marianne Wiid a qualified Iyengar Yoga teacher, a qualified reflexologist, a wine connoisseur, and an avid traveller is one of South Africa’s leading yoga teachers. For her, yoga is a continuous journey of learnings and surprises, and she satisfies her curious spirit by doing yoga all over the world, immersing herself in local cultures and cuisines. Her passion for yoga and the ‘bringing of joy to others’ lets her compassionately guide her students towards fulfilling a vision of a joyous and peaceful life. Marianne will conduct two yoga sessions each day.

Her daughter Anya Tiepelt is a high school English and History teacher who can’t keep herself out of the kitchen. Her passion for food is contagious and has led her into a world of fermentation. She loves making Kimchi as it is a wonderful way to learn the art of fermentation. It is packed with beneficial microorganisms and probiotics and a staple for every kitchen. She will give a hands-on Kimchi workshop, Kimchi is one of the hottest food trends right now - this staple of Korean cuisine - a traditional side dish of salted and fermented vegetables - scores highly on the nutritional scorecard.

Maria van Zyl has her own artisanal butter and dairy business “Cream of the Crop”, based in Case Town. After completing her studies at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Northern Italy, she spent the summer learning the art of butter and cheesemaking in the Italian Alps.

Anya and Maria be cooking special vegetarian dinners, and there is a guided Marine Walk with a picnic with one of de Hoop’s amazing guides. De Hoop’s wonderful chefs will be creating delicious breakfasts and lunches for the group.
