A day in nature

The day starts at 9.00am with a welcoming circle in a lush private polo estate and ends at 6pm.

Throughout the day you will experience one of a kind activities that leave you empowered, yet grounded.

Yoga: Peace, awareness, presence and truthfulness

In our Horses Guided Yoga session you will tap into the innate equine qualities of calmness, awareness and authenticity by sharing time and space with the herd.

Yogic tools like breathing, meditation and physical postures combined with the powerful presence of the horses will leave you mentally and energetically refreshed.

Coaching: Inner strength and equine guidance

In Horse Guided Empowerment® you will access the intuitive competence of the horses.
By taking their guidance, you will tap into your own inner strength to find the answers to your questions.

You will be amazed at the honest, non-judging and powerful feedback these gentle animals can provide you. 

Time to relax

During the lunch break, you can wash off the dust from the morning with a splash in the pool and nourish your body with healthy food at the elegant Epicure pool terrace.

About the Equestrian Association for People of Determination (EAPD)

For this retreat we have exclusive access to the friendly herds of EAPD, and use part of the fee to generate revenue to keep their project going. 
Founded in 1998 under the directorship of Satish Seemar and Ali Albwardy (CEO), the Equestrian Association for People of Determination was born. They have been assisting children with a variety of physical and developmental issues, including autism, Cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome and Spina bifida. EAPD uses horse riding combined with therapeutic riding to achieve a variety of goals to help children develop their physical, cognitive, and emotional abilities allowing them to focus on their abilities and not the disabilities.

The Corona crisis has hit them hard with many of the schools not being able to send the children for their usual classes.
New healing modalities like our regular yoga sessions, coaching for strong mothers, one on one empowerment sessions and our daycations help to generate some income.
