LimitLes trips are intentional escapes for those looking to travel with like-minded people who crave movement, purpose, connection, difference and change for the greater good. LimitLes in South Africa isn’t your average vacay. From yoga to exploration to giving back in an exceptional way – we’ll be sure to make an impact: not only on the local community but on you, too.
On this exact day last year, I was in South Africa soaking up the sun and experiencing a coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes that I’ve never before been witness to in my life. Few places around the world meld diverse lands so seamlessly, but this magical peninsula has it all. From monumental mountains to sandy beaches to vineyards galore to game reserves and wildlife that will take your breath away, we’ll do it all and then some. Options here are truly LimitLes!

Humbling and empowering
It is really humbling yet empowering to be surrounded by strong, independent, adventurous, and compassionate women who cheer you on as you push yourself out of your comfort zone, are there to listen when you share vulnerable words, and simply accept you for you. I left with tears in my eyes, a smile on my face, a full heart, and a very happy soul.
This LimitLes experience was truly life-changing. Lesley and Emily put together a group of kind, powerful, loving humans that I hope to be in contact with the rest of my life. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have spent time learning about a new place, learning about others’ passions, fears, families, friends. I wish everyone could go on a LimitLes trip; it’s magical. You will see new places, eat new things, have new experiences, work on yourself, connect with people and make friends for life. I can not say enough about this wonderful experience.
Really lived up to the name
This group trip, wasn’t your standard trip. It included visits to sites, introductions to a new culture and cuisine. But we were also encouraged to reflect, relax & remain open to new thoughts & opinions on the culture, each other and ourselves. We pushed ourselves and we pushed each other. We really lived up to the name, learning that the world & ourselves, are truly LimitLes. I walked away with more. More friends, more adventures, more memories. I learned that it’s ok to be goofy AND vulnerable. I learned how to be a better listener, to be a better friend. I was also reminded that life is nothing without these adventures and these beautiful humans and to never stop pushing my limits.
Community of uplifting women & men
LimitLes trips introduce you to a new community of uplifting women (+ men), which in turn empowers you to embrace the beautiful person you are, both inside and out. Since returning, I’ve thought about this trip almost daily. It’s re-energized me to continue pursuing my desire to make a difference through my own experiences and passions that I have. Most importantly though, the women on this trip made me, a person who deeply struggles with body image and feeling good enough, feel beautiful. I am encouraged to continue on my journey of accepting the woman that I am and believing there is beauty (inner & outer), no matter the angle of the picture.
When I applied for LimitLes in Bali, I knew that the trip would be special but I could have never anticipated it would be life changing. I’ve traveled solo, with my family/husband, and now with LimitLes. LimitLes blew my mind in terms of the community building and the instant connection with everybody involved. I was embraced immediately by all and supported wholeheartedly the full trip. I am forever thankful for this experience and this group of humans for coming into my life when they did.
Energy and love
My mindset on yoga has completely changed. Lesley’s teaching style is something I’ve never experienced. You can feel her thoughtfulness and kindness through her practice. It doesn’t matter if you’ve done yoga your whole life or people like me…downdog who?! She always made me feel beautiful and like I can do yoga. You can teach any person in the world with that kind of energy and love.
Changed my life!
It’s crazy to me that a random Friday evening answering a few application questions and pressing submit would change my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being you, for constantly walking towards fear and working tirelessly to help walk others down the same path. I am so grateful to be apart of the LimitLes family.
A movement to empower women
I believe every single person on the planet should take the opportunity to travel with strangers like I did. LimitLes trips are a movement. A movement to empower women, help them grow and find their potential as well as renew their hope and strength in humanity. In return, those women can bring home what they learned and spread it at home and in their community to complete the circle and make the world a better place.
We are around strangers every day. Our souls want to connect but we’re so busy in our everyday lives just walking past each other. It was so nice to be around a group of strangers, getting to connect with people and know who they are from their heart…It was really special. After that we were helping each other up the mountain, carrying things to each other, I feel like I’ve known these people forever.
Not simply a vacation!
LimitLes is not simply a vacation. It’s a chance to explore unfamiliar parts of the world and unfamiliar parts of ourselves.
