Retreat Yourself

The escape you never knew you needed has arrived. An escape from the usual, the daily, the mundane. Four whole days to expand your mind, unravel your body and let your soul dance.

Imagine starting your day with sunrise sun salutations in the middle of a forest led by expert Yogis, then meandering along to a Champagne brunch prepared by up and coming Chef’s. Maybe then you’ll want to broaden your consciousness in one of our workshops or have a midday Mojito.

You’ll never know what’s waiting around the next corner. Surprise your senses when you satiate your hunger at the evening banquet before you boogie out at the roller disco. You could even connect with some kindred spirits and shake your Chakras on one of the secret dancefloors. The possibilities are endless.

Indulge your every whim with an abundance of wonders to choose from, there is something for everyone - for the young and young-at-heart.

You know you want to. Go on. Retreat yourself.

What is Retreat Yourself?

Retreat Yourself is a South African born conscious festival celebrating wellness, music and food. From yoga to meditation, champagne brunches to kombucha cocktails, bands to DJ’s, comedy to an open mic, the festival offers a wide variety of activities inviting anyone and everyone to curate their own experience. Over and above that, we encourage guests to attend any of the many thought-provoking talkshops where interesting, pressing and cosmic topics will be opened for discussion.

What is a conscious festival?

Our aim is to provide a sustainable eventing experience with minimal ripple effect on the resources we use. Retreat Yourself presents a platform to festival goers where everyone can play an important part in the process and learn more about the issues at hand. We believe in having fun responsibly and consciously enjoying the beautiful world we live in, so that many after us can do the same.

We are meat-free

With livestock production being one of the leading causes responsible for global greenhouse emissions and deforestation, Retreat Yourself is going meat-free! Please support us as we take on this initiative in our efforts to provide an experience which is sustainable and truly free from violence. The market has many delicious vegetarian and vegan options available, including Sheckters Raw, IYO Burgers, JarBar and more.

The Venue - Elandskloof Farm

Nestled in the countryside and set beneath the beautiful Riviersonderend Mountain Range, Elandskloof Farm is the loving home to Retreat Yourself. Just 20km outside of Greyton, Elandskloof Farm is an hour and a half drive from Cape Town. With magical forests and graceful streams, you can enjoy peaceful tranquility while walking in the mountains or relaxing under a shading tree.
