Heart felt connections in front of a roaring fire
Elemental yoga connecting breath and body
Sound journey with Nate Maingard
Delicious organic meals to keep you nourished throughout
Learn about the medicinal properties of the wild plants grown on the farm
Create your own medicines, teas and smudge sticks
Sharing , connecting , breathing, dancing, laughing and heart opening

Winter is an incredible time to visit Tulbagh as the farm is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and lush green flora. The fynbos comes alive with the rainy season and many plants are flowering at this time which creates a gorgeous landscape in which to harvest the fynbos and other medicinal plants for the herbalism workshop.
When we are not outdoors we will be cuddling in front of a roaring fire sipping on botanical teas, listening to the soothing sounds of Nate Maingard.
There will be plenty of nourishing yogic high vibrational food on offer from our magical kitchen team to keep you energised and satiated throughout.
You will be on your mat each day in our cozy infrared heated yoga studio with the most magnificent views of the Obiqua mountains. A winter retreat is a time for inner-reflection, rest and relaxation and this stunning venue lends itself to facilitate an authentic spiritual experience, whatever that looks like to you.
