Meditation & Yoga Hall

DSC_4045.jpg

The Meditation and Yoga Hall at Bodhi Khaya has been designed and built for a variety of retreats and workshops. From art to zen and everything in between, the warmth, views, style and ambiance is subtle enough to be adapted to different traditions and eclectic practices, yet bold enough to create a sense of home, safety and holding. Showers and toilets are housed with the hall as well as a mini kitchen for keeping you hydrated and nourished during retreats. The Meditation and Yoga Hall has a very comfortably furnished porch that overlooks the gardens, labyrinth, hiking trails and vast acres of rare, indigenous flora. It’s the perfect place to digest it all. 

Labyrinth

Bodhi Khaya's Labyrinth is exquisitely crafted in harmony with the floral eco-system, and incorporates fynbos, aloes and other indegenous plants within its rings.

It was built by Amber McIntyre and Jesse Jessup and is lovingly maintained by all Bodhi Khaya residents. Situated directly under the powerful mountain and surrounded by protective trees, this particular Labyrinth invites you to consciously connect with the earth and elements as you walk inwards to centre. 

 

Swimming

Beside the Meditation Hall and Labyrinth are two beautiful swimming dams. The first is a Lily dam where you can bathe in the beauty of the lilies. The second dam is a tranquil and water hole that you may have to share with swallows at the end of a hot summer's day. Additionally, we also have a small salt-filter swimming pool accompanied by a kids wading pool. Perfect for moonshine and star gazing.

“Love settles within the circle, embracing it and thereby lasting forever, turning within itself.” —Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Sioux

This is a large and beautiful circular space, Tipi style. Perfect for working with the sacred fire and sitting in ceremony, or for special events. The circle represents creation; the sun, the moon, the turning of the seasons, and the cycle of life to death to rebirth. Here at Bodhi Khaya we have created this space to honour the work of those who wish to sit in sacred circle.

Hiking & Mountain Biking

Winding through 217 Hectares of pristine Fynbos and Milkwood forests are 6 magical hiking trails. You can wander through an ancient forest and meditate under the old milkwood tree that’s been around for decades. Or follow the Farm Loop trail along the top of the farm for spectacular views of the valley, and catch a glimpse of the ocean in the far distance. Discover meditation circles and ponds in secluded nooks in the forest; and gaze in wonder at the wild pincushions and proteas turning the hills orange in spring. Have a swim in the many dams along the way. Each trail has its own character, as it meanders through a different section of the farm.
