For a few short days each year, a village of endless possibilities comes alive and opens its gates to the outside world. This pop-up village invites individuals of all ages and walks of life to loosen the grip of modern society and take a leap of faith into the unknown. For it is in the unknown where we can truly find ourselves. Welcome to Retreat Yourself 2023!
Nestled between rolling hills and meandering streams, the charming RY village can be found at the foot of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range. Abundant forests, lush fields and breathtaking scenery set the scene for this adventure, and you get to write the script of your reality.
The village is a melting pot of interaction, introspection and inspiration. Stroll down the bustling streets, and if you wish, make your way to one of the many carefully designed & uniquely activated spaces on offer.
Whether you want to flow into one of the yoga & movement classes, learn something new at a talk & workshop, expand your mind in a ceremonial setting, feast at the various one-of-a-kind culinary experiences or dance the night away at one of the dance floors. There truly is something for everyone!
So, come on and treat yourself to a festival experience like no other, give your body the necessary rest it needs, gift your soul the element of play, bring your family and connect with friends old & new. Curate your own experience. The village is welcoming you with open arms.
