Yoga Retreat 30 May-2 June & 24-27 October
Namaste: Yoga at De Hoop: 30 May – 2 June 2014
De Hoop Collection invites you to deepen your yoga practice with a yoga retreat in its pristine and scenic setting, guided by YogaSpirit from Constantia. The nature reserve will provide the ideal getaway for the quest of inner peace through yoga practice.
Kate Ball and Sara De beer are two well-known yoga teachers from Cape Town. The mornings will feature Vinyasa classes to help you improve your asanas and afternoons are reserved for gentler, restorative classes which serve to de-stress and centre the mind. This will balance out your flow of energy.
Kate’s love of yoga stems from the transforming power it’s had in her own life. She has been teaching since 2007, and has trained in Vinyasa and Forrest yoga. Kate has taught in the USA, India and at Cape Town’s SpiritFest in 2012 and 2013. She feels deeply fortunate to share yoga with others, and teaches classes centred on love, honesty and present moment awareness. Music features strongly in her classes, as does strength, precision and breath. Kate directs YogaSpirit in Constantia Village.
Sara completed her Teacher training with Jim Harrington in Cape Town in 2010 and became a lifelong student of yoga, attending and studying as many courses as possible – travelling from India to Hong Kong to Cape Town. In India, she sought an austere practice, but found that she prefers to practice with exuberance and to move from a place of joy. Yoga asana heals and transforms people and Sara believes that the single most important purpose of practicing yoga is that of freedom – from physical pain, emotional pain and fear.
