We are a Yoga and Movement Studio in the Helderberg Winelands.Life Retreat Studio is set at the breath-taking foothills of the Hottentots Holland mountain range, on Africa’s premier Lourensford Wine Estate. We form South Africa’s first complete Healing Hub of its kind.
The vision began with Trish & Samantha Taylor wanting to bring their unified dreams together in a sacred South African landscape that would inspire healing and wellness, along with local Yoga Teacher and Life Coach, Ryan Gary Edmonds, they have just opened the doors to the actualisation of their dream – and in the exquisite landscape of Lourensford Wine Estate.
The studio offers a selection of healing movement modalities (yoga, pilates, meditation, kundalini yoga, ballet barre, and Sunday morning outdoor family yoga classes). It boasts several on site venues for workshops, talks, book launches, and corporate wellness days. Life Retreat Studio is also be registered with Discovery Vitalit & Momentum Health.
“No matter what age, level of fitness, or personal experiences you bring to Healing Hub, we have something wonderful to offer you. Our classes range from kids to adults, injury-rehabilitation to cardiovascular. Whether you are looking for something purely physical, or deeply meditative and mindful, you will find it at Life Retreat Studio. Our motto is that everyone walks away from each visit with a bit more healing and happiness in their hearts”.
The downstairs Lifestyle Shop is a treasure trove of locally sourced gifts, health products, beauty products and fashion. Targeting the local as well as international market, the Lifestyle Shop sources natural, organic, and regionally-sourced products, focusing on supporting local entrepreneurs and small businesses. It is also the first fully licenced shop in South Africa to be permitted to sell Cannabinoid (CBD) oil.
In conjunction with Life Retreat Studio & Shop, their new addition Life Retreat Spa offers many forms of wellness therapies (massage, hypnotherapy, herbalism, complimentary healing, and iridology)
Along with their work on the field of healing, Life Retreat Studio runs one of the most authentic Yoga Teacher Training Certification courses in South Africa.
Many of the teachers who are a part of the Life Retreat Studio team are involved in local community yoga projects, women’s empowerment groups, and NPOs.
The philosophy of each therapist, teacher and practitioner is to spread healing into a world which, at the present, is in desperate need of loving hearts, and healing hands.
When you come to Life Retreat Studio at Lourensford Estate, you receive a complete Body-Mind-Spirit experience, which will leave you feeling not only lighter, happier, and healthier, but also as if you are part of deeply caring community of hearts.
