Description

10 Day Yoga Safari Retreats in Namibia

Join local teacher, Eva Eicchorn and retreat organizer, Marcel Vosloo for a 10 day yoga safari retreat and adventure visiting Namibia’s top 3 locations. We will visit Namibia’s Greatest Wildlife Park for an incredible game viewing experience and explore the German influenced coastal town where the Ocean meets the Desert. Meditate in the stillness of the oldest Desert in the World, ending the retreat with luxury accommodation the night before departing, it certainly can’t end on a more relaxed note.

The venues are set in unique locations offering the most incredible tranquil settings in harmony with nature. Each day is set to begin with a morning yoga practice out in nature with Eva.

After breakfast, time will be spent on an excursion with professional guides specific to the area, a chance to really get to see the country and what makes it so unique.

On return from the activity, lunch will be served and then some time to relax and enjoy the “holiday” part of this adventure or head off for another activity. As the days draw to a close, you will find yourself back in nature for an afternoon yoga practice and meditation at sunset. There is nothing quite like experiencing the sounds of nature, wide open spaces and breathtaking views to inspire relaxation and to find inner peace…
