When was the last time you gave yourself a week to simply enjoy this beautiful life and reconnect with yourself?
This retreat is for those who are seeking to find (or re-connect) their purpose, to soak in their own self-love, and heal any past experiences that have been holding you back from discovering your divine purpose in the magical lands of South Africa! You don’t have to have any previous experience to join, just come as you are, because as you are, is perfect.
Guided by Alexzandra Peters we will re-connect to ourselves through yoga, meditation, journaling and Thai Yoga Massage. Be surrounded by the majestic animals of Africa as we sleep on a game reserve.
