Nourish and restore with a retreat on the water!



“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you. A joy”

The words of Rumi are the epitome of what Nina and Nicole offer at Nourish and Restore Yoga Retreats. We got in touch with them to hear all about the wonderful experiences of their retreats on the water.


Nina and Nicole met at a Pre- and Post Natal teacher training course where they hit it off straight away. It was only a few years later, over a glass of wine & dinner, that they came up with the concept of Nourish & Restore. Both Nina and Nicole come from a very strong teaching background, having over 20 years of experience between them. Their combined experience in teacher trainings, workshops and retreats make them the perfect team; as retreat hosts as well as friends.

Their goal was to create bespoke and unique Yoga Retreats intuitively tapping into the needs of their clients.The inspiration came from a yoga cruise that Nina attended in Turkey 3 years ago. She fell in love with the idea and told Nicole about it on her return. With the perfect image in mind, they set off to find the most luxuirous and suitable venue…

...which is how Nourish & Restore Yoga Retreats was born.


Take time to just move. Your body longs to feel alive.



The Luxury Nirvana Houseboat offers you the opportunity of “living on the water”. This large boat offers an upper and lower deck, furnished with a lounge, kitchen, spacious bedrooms as well as a outside area perfect for lounging and sunbathing. The boat is situated in the Kraalbaai West Coast Nature Reserve where you can enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings with the soothing sounds of the ocean. It truly is paradise on the West Coast!




Those that attend this unique retreat can expect to be blown away with the beautiful views. Imagine being surrounded by the pristiene lagoon and nature reserve. Your days are filled with gentle Yoga practices, delicious meals, lots of laughs and a really good time. It truly is the best way to connect with nature, with others and with yourselves. Not only are you given time to rejuvenate, but there are plenty of opportunities for adventure inlcuding hiking, supping and canoeing. If that doesn’t appeal to you, then maybe relaxing on the beach or spending time on the deck is more up your alley. There really is something for everyone.


“From the knowledge & experience gained through our own journeys with our open hearted and fun approach, we create a safe space allowing people to be themselves and enabling them to dive deeper into self enquiry, healing and their full potentiality.”

Nourish and Restore Yoga Retreats are held once a year, each retreat limited to 16 people. If this sounds like heaven to you, make sure you book your space for their next retreat on 8-11 March.
