A heart and soul retreat - a place to learn and grow

I participated in Jen’s 200hr teacher training last November.

It was life changing. Put simply.

I am a different person… no… I am more of myself than I have ever been since training with Jen. Not only did she deepen my knowledge of yoga (I had already done one TTC) but she deepened my knowledge of Self, and because of her, my learnings and soul journey has opened and expanded in magical ways I never knew possible.


Pathways in itself is a place to go inwards. It is so peaceful, from the birds to the sugar canes to the delicious love-filled meals… You feel totally held, and you can really focus and go inward here.

Jen has created a very special place. I cannot recommend her or her beautiful sanctuary more.

She is a gift to us all.

What a beautiful, transforming experience. Jennifer is an excellent teacher who cares so much about transferring her immense knowledge and helping heal all who come on retreat.

The rooms are beautiful, the food is beyond description and the retreat centre is wonderfully peaceful.

I am undoubtedly a on a wonderful path because of my experience at Pathways.

Pathways Country Yoga retreat is like a home from home. The teachers training was far beyond my expectations. Jen gives all of herself to you as a student, ensuring you get the very most of the time there. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity, that has changed my life in an absolute positive way. Thank you Team Pathways.

the best choice I could have made. Very recommendable.

I signed up for a 10 days retreat. Didn't know what to expect but I felt I was welcomed like a family member. There were 3 other participant, lots of personal attention, the yoga teacher (Jen) is very qualified in what she does. The whole atmosphere was an atmosphere of love while at the same time very suitable for people that enter yoga for the first time (like me). Non judgemental, funny, laughed a lot, good vibrations, build up friendships. You gotta love Jen and Lee (her husband) as well as their animal family. Best value for money. And indeed life changing.

Best decision of my life!

I want to begin to thank Jennifer and Lee for this amazing life-changing experience!!

For all the people that are considering doing a YTT even if all you want to do is just improve your own skills, this is the perfect place to do so! You will not just learn how to teach and do Asanas, during these 21 days you will really embrace the true essence of Yoga and understand what that actually means.


On top of that this course is World Yoga Alliance accredited, which trump Yoga Alliance (US) any day!!

The accommodation is luxurious, homey and very unique. The surroundings are so beautiful and peaceful a perfect place to actually study Yoga. I was here during the South African Winter and can't even begin to imagine how is during summer!!!!

The food was ridiculously good and they really go the extra mile to cater to every dietary need ( Vegan, Meat, Fish, etc)

Honestly, they always go the extra mile. Like every Friday there was Beach Yoga day
On one Saturday we went to a huge farmers market,
Another one on a game drive (safari)

This was the best decision I have ever made! And I can fully recommend coming here even if you dont do a YTT as i did

Incredible Experience

This has been a truly amazing experience in a time when I needed it most. Jennifer and Lee are both wonderful humans whose hospitality and kindness are unparalleled.

The retreat is a wonderful haven that has a sense of remoteness yet is also near enough to the city (an hours drive) and some cool attractions. I was pleasantly surprised to find some great day trips included (and beach yoga Fridays!). The food was AMAZEBALLS! And the accommodation has a unique sense of homeliness and a great cozy feel.

Jennifer has equipped me to be the best Yoga Instructor I can be and I look forward to sharing this wonderful art with others.

A wholesome yoga retreat fitting every groups unique needs. Including various attraction options nearby yet located on a private secluded peaceful property. The Perfect blend for a perfect retreat.

A little slice of yoga heaven

You won't find a more hospitable, relaxing and welcoming place. You will be nurtured on all levels and leave full of new experiences. I did my YTT200 with Jen at Pathways Country Yoga Retreat and went straight into teaching with confidence. Thank you Jen for creating such a wonderful and safe place for self-exploration.

Life changing

Every few years I go through an experience that jolts my consciousness back, that re-aligns my chakras and reminds and re-energizes me along my path to my life's purpose. Going there was one of those moments. My experience there was irreplaceable, and happened just at the right time with the right people and I could never have asked for better hosts. If I write about every positive thing there I would have to write a book. Everything felt just right and I recommend anyone and everyone who needs a place to re-align, heal, or even to just be at peace to know yourself all over again, to go there. It will remind you just how beautiful life is.

Yoga escape

I was fortunate enough to have this gorgeous retreat to myself with the passionate, gentle and knowledgable Jen. It was a life changing experience of great yoga (and a new style for me) delicious food and generous knowledge sharing. Highly recommended as a genuine yogi experience with a fantastic, kind and patient host.

Fantastic Yoga Experience

Thank you so much to Pathways for such an amazing experience on my Yoga Teachers Training.
Jen is a knowledgeable, kind and caring teacher. Her intimate style of teaching paired with her informative course evoked a major growth in my perspective of success and prosperity.
I would highly recommend anyone who is seeking an attentive and personal experience and looking for a safe space to evaluate their own growth to venture to this remote paradise.


The accommodation is classy and comfortable, the food tasty and wholesome and the education enlightening and thoughtful. Not to mention that Jen caters to every pesky need of each individual with immense enthusiasm.
All I can say is thank you to friends who’ve made a huge impact on me.
And lots of love goes out to the next retreatants.

Highly recommend to everyone
