Greyton, in the Overberg region of South Africa’s Western Cape, was established in the mid-19th century, making it a historical town that, while very small, still boasts a very distinctive character and allure.

As part of High Hopes, there is the Greyton Sleep Retreats, which focuses on sleep disorders.

The Under the Mountain Yoga Centre
Its name alludes to the Riviersonderend Mountain Range, which looms over Greyton with a watchful eye, making every view of the landscape for miles around a special one. The Under the Mountain Yoga Centre is situated on the corner of Park and Kloof streets and is run by acclaimed South African yoga instructor, Jonathan Blumberg, who has over four decades of experience.
Different yoga programmes are available, depending on each client’s personal requirements. These include workshops, retreats and various residency programmes. Personal attention is of paramount importance at The Under the Mountain Yoga Centre, so groups are kept small and intimate.
In addition to the actual yoga, clients are immersed within the peaceful environs of Greyton, with its crisp, clean air rolling off the mountains and clear sky unmarred by pollution.
Change rooms, lockers, showers and yoga mats are provided.
