Looking to not only to attend a fabulous yoga retreat to deepen your practice but to also have a holiday in an exotic location? Then consider Souljourn Yoga’s retreat to Cape Town (or one of their future retreats) and Pure Flow Yoga’s retreats in Koh Phangan, Thailand. What we love about these two special yoga retreats: each has an element for the attendees to “give back”!
January 17-26, 2020
Join Mollie Mendoza, Sam Garrett, and the founder of Souljourn Yoga, Jordan Ashley in a stunning villa in Camps Bay to enjoy yoga every morning , delicious plant-based breakfast (made by Arabella of Eat to Thrive) and a fresh adventure from sea to safari. Saffa Tours will guide participants on a journey that encourages exploration, creativity, and serenity all against the backdrop of this beautiful coastal city.
This retreat partners with Lalela Project (a Zulu word that means to “listen”) that uses an arts curriculum to ignite imagination and teach children how to map and manifest their dreams and goals, launching the possibility of a different future for themselves and their communities in townships and inner city youths. The retreat participants will be volunteering with their Female Empowerment Program with three opportunities to create, connect, and be inspired by these amazing young women through art and movement.
About Souljourn Yoga
Souljourn Yoga Foundation is a US 501(c)3 non-profit inspired by seva, the Sanskrit word and yogic principle of selfless service. It raises awareness and funds for girls education in lesser economically developed countries (LEDCs) by teaming up with both local and international non-profits.
Currently, over 130 million girls around the world are denied an education, which also means they’re denied the chance to improve their overall health, income, quality of life, and the ability to empower themselves with endless opportunities. A girl with an education is also less likely to become a victim of violence and child marriage, which are two predominant issues that women face across the globe.
