Teacher

Alexzandra Peters is a spiritual leader, Reiki & Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner and a 200hr certified Yoga instructor who dives into the depths of self-freedom and soul awakening through her teachings.

Filled with anxiety and depression, Alexzandra found Yoga at a perfect time in her life. Through her practice she found her way back to herself and picked up the broken pieces. Immediately she knew that she wanted to help guide others home to themselves and help create a space for her students to honor who they are.

Alexzandra’s teachings are emotional with emphasis on bringing your life to the mat and working through it in your body and breath, rather than leaving it all at the door, as well as having fun. Her style is unique, fun, and challenging. In her classes, expect to work, sweat, play, laugh and grow and leave with a deeper understanding, connection and love for your self.

Location #1: Drakensberg

Drakensberg in KwaZulu-Natal and part of the uKahlamba Drakensberg Park, a World Heritage site.

Location #2: Nambiti Private Game Reserve

Nambiti Private Game Reserve is set in KwaZulu-Natal on 22,000 magnificent acres near the town of Ladysmith, conveniently close to Johannesburg/Pretoria (3.5-4 hours) and Durban (2.5 hours).

Nambiti is also close to the renowned KZN battlefields, a major attraction of this region. One of its major drawcards is that Nambiti is situated in a malaria-free area, meaning that guests don’t have to take medication before visiting.

This reserve boasts the attractions of the Big 5, the only one in the area to do so, and Nambiti’s biodiversity (it encompasses grasslands, riverine bush, savannah and thornveld) ensures a thrilling and unprecedented diversity of game (there are 40 other game species besides the big 5) and birding sightings.

Location #3: East Coast of South Africa

Pumula Retreat is situated on the subtropical East Coast of South Africa, 120km south of Durban, in the Umzumbe area.

The large property boasts breath-taking sea views, has direct access to the forest, and is only 1km away from the beach. The attraction of the location is the quiet environment, the privacy and the spectacular natural surroundings.

The South Coast boasts sunny weather all year around and the warm Indian Ocean allowing outdoor activities to be carry out such as surfing, scuba diving, horse riding, hiking, paragliding, etc. The large well wooded garden – 18700m2 enables guests to reconnect with nature and spot the local wildlife such as duiker, bushbuck (local antelope) and birdlife, as well as finding peace and tranquillity amongst the trees.

The glass yoga studio at the bottom of the garden surrounded by the trees provides a unique yogic experience with nature.
