Note: Completed

The Venue

    I will be leading this retreat at the Eden Rise Retreat Centre in Devon, in South West England. The centre has been deliberately converted for retreats and is in a beautiful location in the Devon countryside.

   The centre has a large yoga room, under-floor heating throughout and wifi.  There is also a sauna which will be available during the free time in the afternoons.

The yoga

    Practices will include Asanas, Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama and Samyama.

    The focus of the retreat will be on the cultivation of inner silence, peace-fullness, bliss and purification of the subtle body.  There will be talks on meditation and the cultivation of samadhi during the retreat.

    Full instructions in practice will be given. The retreat will be led in English.


    This retreat will be suitable for people of all levels of experience.


    Food will be vegetarian. The food served will support a yoga and meditation practice. We can also cater for vegan diets and special diets such as dairy or gluten free, if you let us know in advance.

   There will be two meals served each day (brunch and dinner) and fruits and hot drinks will be available all day.
