We will plant out beans sown on the April Yoga Nidra and Sowing Seeds Workshop. The bean poles are coppiced from the trees on the land here.

To bring: gardening gloves (some here), sturdy shoes, clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.

This day will energise your yoga practise and relax your being. Take time out to get perspective, nurture and nourish yourself. Enjoy the peace of rural mid-Devon and soak in the prana of nature. A chance to unwind and revive.
