1. Why should I join your Yoga and Wine retreats?

 

Because we keep it real.

We don’t chant, Om or force you to sit through dreadful ”Circle Chats”.

We also don’t restrict you to a diet of kale, carrot juice and bland broths.

We won’t wake you at 6am for your first yoga class.
And if you don’t make it to all scheduled activities, we won’t ask you why.

Our aim is to create unique retreats that are all about balance and all about bringing people together, without judgement. And yes, that involves wine, gourmet foods and of course Yoga and meditation.

Whereas we love clean eating, we’re also strong advocates of enjoying the good things in life – slowing down, forgetting about Netflix and social media, admiring the sun rise, enjoying delicious meals paired with silky wines and flowing conversations. All of these are just as important as green juices and exercise.

Whether you step on the mat after a hectic day or curl up on the sofa with a glass of red, you’re allowing yourself to unwind and slow down. Practicing yoga and drinking wine (in the right moderation) are both experiences that can reduce stress, encourage social connection and improve relaxation.

And that’s exactly what our Yoga and Wine Retreats are all about.

We want to connect (with) like-minded people, whisk them away to stunning destinations where they can relax and share memorable experiences together. Think inspiring conversations (in real life, thank you!), jaw-dropping excursions, organic cooking classes, spa treatments, wine tasting (obviously) and yoga classes – of course.

 

 

2. Why should I join your Digital Detox or Off-Grid Glamping retreats?

Because you most likely need it!

We understand it sounds scary but hear us out.

All we want to do is create epic events and retreats where the focus lies on sharing great experiences (yoga, wine-tasting, glamping, outdoor adventures!) without feeling the need to immediately share everything with the rest of the world.

We want to give you the opportunity to log off, switch off and simply enjoy being surrounded by like-minded people. An added bonus is that tech-free retreats have proven to reduce stress and anxiety (Yay!).

It also drastically improves the quality of your sleep and the quality of your relationships. Once you allow yourself to step away from the digital noise, you’ll have ample time to reconnect with yourself, your Shiraz, your loved ones and your surroundings.

5. No, of course we don’t charge fees to book you into our group retreats.

Technically not a question, but important nonetheless!

To book yourself into one of our Group Retreats we don’t charge any consulting fees. We only charge a non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot, and obviously the remaining payment in due time. Deposit varies per group retreat.

6. Are all your retreats tech-free?

No.

Whereas we encourage switching off as much as possible, during your retreat and at home, we also understand not everyone can or wants to go completely off-the-grid.

If you are hosting your own retreat or planning a corporate getaway, we work closely with you to ensure we book the environment that is right for you, your clients and your employees.

For most of our Yoga & Wine retreats, we focus on an overall unique retreat experience where refraining from using technology is encouraged, but not mandatory. If we do organise a digital detox experience at a winery retreat (i.e. our upcoming Glamping at The Winery retreat), we’ll always let you know.

When you participate in one of our digital detox (glamping) retreats, the emphasis lies on switching off completely. That doesn’t mean you’re completely cut-off from life back home, but we do encourage social interactions and have a ‘no-phones’ policy. In case of emergencies, there is always a phone at the venue so you can be contacted at any time.

A lot of your personal digital detox immersion depends on the location we choose (presence of Wi-Fi, mobile phone reception etc), but also on your willingness to switch off and experience the journey.

Not all our retreats are digital detox

 

7. And finally, what is a Digital Detox?

”Digital detox is a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices such as smartphones or computers, regarded as an opportunity to reduce stress or focus on social interaction in the physical world.”

In today’s digitally-driven and hectic society we seem to be always ‘switched-on’. Digital Detox retreats are designed to help you recharge and reset without any digital distractions. No work emails, no social media notifications, no news.

Sounds pretty damn good to us!
