Yoga Holiday South Africa

Spoil your body and soul with yoga in the sun

10 days in India only for you! The surroundings are perfect and unique. Basunti is the location where we are going to spend ten days in heaven. At the top of the clifs on a island in a lake and with the Himalayas in the background, it creates the most amazing sorroundings for a yoga holiday.

Winter 2017

All you have to do is to be spoiled with:


  • A Lot Of Wonderful Yoga
  • Delicious & Nutritious Food
  • Relaxation & Inner Peace
  • Nature, Water & swims in the lake  
  • Relaxation & Presence


The teaching
The teaching will be a combination of a gentle version of the dynamic type of yoga, Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga. With Vinyasa Yoga, we are moving with the breath to connect body and mind. By doing that we create a sensation of flow and freedom in the body. I always teach a gentle version of Vinyasa Yoga, which gives you time to breathe and you get connected with your body.

With Hatha Yoga we hold the positions longer, thus creates the possibility to work deeper into the positions. When we do Hatha Yoga we will get into some of the more challenging positions, go together 2 & 2 or 3 & 3 and explore our potential and maybe move a little on our borders ; o)


NOTE : everyone can participate and be on their own terms , so you do not necessarily
need to participate in everything, if you do not feel for it.
