Talitha and Ellie have joyfully been running retreats together in Europe for the past 2 years, and to now bring this new year yoga and meditation retreat to you in such a setting will be a magical creation.
Ellie is a senior yoga teacher with 11 years teaching experience and an accredited Yoga Teacher Training director, running sold out teacher trainings in London, Sweden and Portugal. She holds a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance and a Masters in Effective Learning and Teaching from UCL. Talitha has been teaching and running retreats and workshops for 3 years, while continuing to study yoga therapeutics, psychology and yoga philosophy.
Together we offer in-depth and explorative journeys in dynamic, restorative and yin yoga as well as multiple facets of meditation and creative forms of internal enquiry.
The aim of the retreat is to hold ourselves in the present and celebrate the start of a new year, and welcome the truth that we are always beginning in each moment. Through the principles of yoga, movement, healthy eating and meditation we can cultivate a sense of liberation and adventure with which to start our year. All while surrounded by beautiful African nature.

There is no jetlag too as only one hour difference.
