What you'll do

We will meet at the main entrance of The Wilds. This natural area within the concrete jungle of Johannesburg will take you by complete surprise, a hidden gem that many Johannesburgers don’t even know exists! This outdoor space has been a refuge for me in a city that is mostly hustle and bustle. I have been meditating, moving and sharing this space with people as an alternative to being in an indoor studio or gym. The feeling is incomparable. The sounds of birds and water, the shade of trees and grass under foot is the perfect setting for a mindful walk to the space where we will practice and explore movement in a peaceful, fun and connective way with ourselves, environment and one another. The practice is a conglomeration of my experience with forms of yoga, martial arts, dance, acrobatics, calisthenics, locomotion and natural movement. After practicing and playing, I will share some stories and experiences of Johannesburg and South Africa, giving you a personal insight into things, feelings and impressions less obvious to visitors. An embracing and expansive experience awaits. *Sunrise or sunset encourage

David

I love what I practice, and sharing what I practice with people is what it’s all about. I have been studying movement & meditation for 10 years. My studies and facilitating have taken me to India, throughout Europe, Miami, throughout Central America and Brazil, as well as throughout my home of South Africa. I teach and have hosted my teachers in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria as well as host retreats and immersions deep in the countryside. I also studied Archaeology and embrace an exceptional passion for our lesser know people, places and stories.

What's included

Drinks
Depending on the weather, I will pack a suitable tea in a flask to enjoy under a shady tree or on a rock in the sun.

Where you'll be

The Wilds, a Johannesburg Heritage Site is an inner city park that was originally built in 1922. Recently, the park has been revived by local residents and is an urban oasis, with a variety of indigenous flora, local artists installations, exceptional views of Joburg and little nooks and crannies to explore and rest. I will take you to the must see places and provide a movement and meditation experience absorbing the good vibes of this sanctuary.
