Step Into Your Joy at La Roche Estate Franschhoek

And Now Yoga…


And Now Yoga; an incomplete sentence that ignites confusion and makes you wonder if now is your time for yoga.
I read this line many times before understanding my journey into yoga and the true faces of the word yoga.
That yoga was not something you did after work or the reason there was a ping at the far end of your room at 5am. Although this is how yoga starts for most of us, it certainly isn’t the complete story.

Date      :   26 May 2018

Where :     La Roche Estate Franschhoek

In our workshop Step Into Your Joy we will spend the day uncovering the ways in which yoga can manifest through discovery. How integrating certain routines and small lifestyle changes will allow for you to thrive in joy.

We invite you to have a child like intrigue into movement, breath, food, feeling and fun. This workshop has been designed to introduce its participants to something new and to foster an understanding of how only through awareness can we begin to see each moment as our education into yogic union.

This concept of something new will be different for each person attending, for some it may be asana (postures), for others pranayama practice (breath), planting your own herbs, nutrition, but for most it will be our beautiful location at La Roche Estate and their heated yoga Sanctuary.

Set in Franschhoek, the Estate will serve as our open-air classroom where will flow between breath work, a Vinyasa flow class, meditation, planting our own herbs and learning how to look after our own Kombucha, and an exploration with Carmen Loots The Health Chef into foods that nourish our bodies.

Step Into Your Joy is our invitation to you to explore your yoga and to be inspired by incredible new habits that you can cultivate into your lives.
