Nurtured in Nature Yoga Retreat



30th May - 2nd June, 2019



Nurtured in Nature is a restorative yoga retreat in the spectacular private natural surroundings of Pumula Retreat Centre on the KZN Coast of South Africa.  Following natural rhythms set by the Indian Ocean and our circadian cycles I will guide you to a place of deep nurture with Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Meditation and the powerful healing of the ancient Gong. Nourished by lovingly produced vegetarian foods and surrounded by like minded people you will be able to safely allow stress, tension and negativity to melt away. Leave lighter, brighter, happier and empowered with useful tools to revitalise, nourish and nurture yourself on and off the mat and back home. 

* Non-Yogi partners or friends are welcome. There is plenty to do during Yoga and retreat activities.

* Non-Residential rate is also available if you prefer to stay off-site. Please note this rate includes lunch and two Yoga sessions a day.
