About this trip

Souljourn Yoga invites you to begin 2020 on an epic adventure to the gorgeous, culturally abundant, and truly magical Cape Town, South Africa. Please join Mollie Mendoza, Sam Garrett, and founder of Souljourn Yoga, Jordan Ashley in a stunning villa in Camps Bay where we will start off each morning with yoga, delicious plant-based breakfast (made by our very own private vegan chef, Arabella of Eat to Thrive), and a fresh adventure from sea to safari. You will be guided by Saffa Tours on a journey that encourages exploration, creativity, and serenity all against the backdrop of this beautiful coastal city that will not only open your senses, but your heart as we enjoy this beautiful balance of excursion, rest, and practice. 


From ceremony, live music, surfing, hiking table mountain, snorkeling with cape fur seals, township and market tour and so much more, this retreat is honored to have partnered with our sister organization, Lalela Project (a Zulu word that means to “listen”) that uses an arts curriculum to ignite imagination and teach children how to map and manifest their dreams and goals, launching the possibility of a different future for themselves and their communities in townships and inner city youths. Our retreat participants will be volunteering with their Female Empowerment Program with three opportunities to create, connect, and be inspired by these amazing young women through art and movement.

The trip was amazing! The perfect balance of yoga, immersion into Peruvian culture, service and relaxation. Life-changing experience.

From the moment I arrived in Nicaragua I felt a sense of comfort and calm for the retreat that was before me. Stacey from My Alma Retreats coordinates a flawless series of logistics; myself and a handful of other retreat goers were pleasantly escorted to an incredibly villa on the pacific coast of Nicaragua for our first few days of retreat and recharge. Jordan and Allison led our group into several morning and evening yoga sessions that were mindfully choreographed and guided our group through the chakra system, element by element. Our days were blissful and entirely up to us how we wanted to spend them. We were spoiled by our fabulous personal chef who cooked amazing, colorful, nutrient and flavor rich meals three times a day. We headed into Granada midweek to give back to the local community through a heartfelt and fulfilling engagement with the young girls of UP Nicaragua; a philanthropic initiative to education the girls of inner city Granada on healthy and sustainable vocational options for their future. To say it was moving is an understatement; we hugged, conversed, practiced yoga, and shared empowering motivation to encourage them to continue striving for their dreams. We finished the week in the absolutely breathtaking countryside on a mineral rich, warm, inverted volcano lake, at Laguna Apoyo. Yoga sessions took place on a platform perched just above the lake, at sunrise and sunset, with the sounds of nature offering support and serenity; a truly majestic experience. Our final adventure took us into the city of Esteli, where we learned about the rich culture of farming; tobacco, Coffee and coco, that sustains the rural communities of Nicaragua. We donated books to the library bus initiative, offering mobile literacy for the rural communities of northern Nica. The experience was transformative, energizing, relaxing and majestic. I highly recommend for any adventurous spirit seeking a way to connect to culture, connect to your higher self, and give back in ways that are deeply moving. Flawlessly planned and executed by Stacy of My Alma Retreats. Flawlessly energized by Allison and Jordan.

I cannot speak highly enough about this transformative experience to Nicaragua. Jordan plans the most unique trip fusing together relaxation for the mind and body with an immersive cultural experience giving back to the local communities. I feel refreshed and inspired and cannot wait to sign up for my next retreat!

Dear Jordan and SoulJourn Yoga team, What an adventure. Prema Peru was an action packed and exciting journey. Most of all spending time with the girls of Sacred Valley Project was the most memorable especially shopping in the markets, learning their culture and making them smile! I wish we could have spent more time with the high school girls however because this visit was planned during the weekday they were doing their studies. I also think the flow of events would be smoother if we did not do sit downs for lunch. This took a lot of time out of the days where there were activities planned. A solution could be to grab food quickly somewhere or bag lunches. My most favorite meals were at Sacha Munay, Cola de Mono & Sunday we are at an incredible local spot in Cusco that was delicious! The activities were wonderful from ziplining to hot baths to Machu Picchu! The beginning of the trip was good paced and relaxing with plenty of time to enjoy yoga classes and gong bathes. This helped to acclimate to the elevation as well. I found that there were too many activities which made it confusing to know what was going on or what to pack in the middle of the week. Highly recommend to stress lots and lots of bug spray when in the jungle. Many people were eaten alive! We also had one man down during the mountain biking which was scary and thankful he is OK. However would be best to include travel insurance into the price based off the activity levels instead of making it an option. Overall I rate 10 out of 10! Incredible experience to give back to the girls and to experience Peru. Loved Sergio our guide, Che Che our driver, and Raoul ! They were wonderful. Maybe good idea to recommend to bring money for tipping them as well. Thank you again! Wonderful time!
Truly an epic adventure. In the Andes, every day brings ever more breathtaking landscapes, but we also had the special opportunity to meet and interact with the people of this amazing country, especially the girls of the Sacred Valley Project who are getting the education they so richly deserve.
