A mix of Hatha, Yin, and Vinyasa. Suitable for all levels of experience, you will nurture correct posture and alignment, and focus on going deeply into the heart with your practice. The intention is that you will be able to take these yoga practices home with you in your daily life.
The sitting meditation sessions will initially be guided. No prior experience of meditation is required, and if you are already practicing meditation, these sessions will not conflict with your own practice.
During your stay, you will be served two daily delicious meals (breakfast and dinners). We skip lunch to give time for the body to focus on healing rather then digesting food, as well as to help garner clarity and focus. For those who are hungry during the day, delicious vegan snacks will be provided - we love baking vegan goods! All food is organic where possible and made with loving intention. Your relationship with food reflects in your body and mind as harmony or discord, with this in mind we shall eat well.
During this retreat, you will be staying at The Villa at Goodwill Mountain Farm. This incredible house 400 square meters in size, is built on a dam up in the mountains. Wake up each morning and take a swim underneath the mountains or just bask in the magnificence of this setting.
You have the option of choosing to share a room or book it privately. All the rooms have been designed for your comfort and relaxation with modern simplicity and colour. Natural and biodegradable products are the only products used for your comfort and the health of the planet. The quiet and calm of the countryside allows for plenty of relaxation and the plethora of stars at night will be sure to inspire awe.
The retreat will take place on Goodwill Mountain Farm, which is nestled against the Kleinriviersberg just outside the charming village of Stanford. The strong presence of the mountains and the abundant wildlife gives rise to deep communion with nature and inner silence is easily found amongst the wind rustling through the pine trees. The farm is a permaculture project in progress and and we work and live with a deep respect for the land.
