Each day will start with a Yang Vinyassa Yoga practice designed to open and invigorate the body. Levels of poses will be given from beginner to advanced, to suit all levels of yoga-practitioner. Once we have suﬃciently warmed and opened physically we will end the morning sessions with guided breath-work, meditation and relaxation to balance the mind and spirit.
After morning practice we will head on to group breakfast, after which the day will be open and free for you to choose what to do with your time. There are several beaches 10 mins drive from Pumula Retreat Centre, and there is a small swimming pool with sun-loungers to laze on at the Retreat.
Cultural tours, beach and forest walks or longer hikes in Oribi Gorge or the Mangrove forests, abseiling, zip-lining, horse-riding, mountain biking, river-rafting, shark dives, ocean safaris, scubadiving and surﬁng lessons are only a few of the activities in the area for those who want to be more active.
For those who want to relax... massage, reﬂexology, shiatsu and reiki are available.
Once you make your 50% deposit a more detailed list of activities will be sent out with your booking conﬁrmation.
Our late afternoon/evening yoga session will start with gentle Vinyassa and Hatha Yoga to prepare the body. We will then move into a Yin and Restorative Yoga practice to work into deeper held tension and stress held in the fascia, other connective tissue and the nervous system. We will close the evening practice with guided breathing, visualization and meditation to fully release on the deepest soul level.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks, tea and coﬀee are included in the Retreat rate. All meals are vegetarian. Please inform us in advance if you have any allergies or intolerance. You are welcome to bring your own alcohol but please do not be excessive as over-indulgence can be disturbing to the other retreatants peace, and will probably also make your own yoga experience quite unpleasant... hangovers and morning yoga are not the best combination!
