“It only takes a reminder to breathe,
a moment to be still, and just like that,
something in me settles, softens…”
*Danna Faulds

Balu Nivison and Claudia Batschari will combine Dance and Ayurveda (Science of Life) to create a space of joy, movement and wellness. Through dance and letting our bodies speak, we access parts of ourselves which we can’t access with our intellect.

Balu will do daily yoga and dance sessions through which we get into deep process work. Claudia will do daily informative and practical Ayurveda Sessions about daily Routines and Rituals, the Doshas & Elements and our embodied Life-force, including breath work and meditations.

Workshop sessions from the 18th September morning to 22nd September afternoon (excluding accommodation) costs – R5 500
This includes: 3 nourishing Ayurvedic lunches and 3 Ayurvedic dinners, Dinner on the last night at a village restaurant

*************************

My Ayurvedic retreats are about receiving this ancient elemental wisdom, connecting with nature, holding each other in love and acceptance, and remembering what we already know – and have always known.

We will flow together in a beautiful rhythm of:

  • sitting in circle
  • receiving guided meditations
  • learning about Ayurveda
  • sharing & supporting from our innate feminine wisdom
  • swimming | resting | cooking |
  • eating simple nourishing vegetarian Ayurvedic meals
  • silent walks
  • movement in the form of yoga and dance

The Space is our old farmhouse De Vrede in the Klein Karoo village of McGregor. There are 3 different room types with different prices. Additionally, there is a more budget-friendly option of camping in the extensive gardens – or a more private option of staying in one of the many self-catering places close by.
