bank holiday intermediate yoga retreat


Develop your asanas and pranayama. Enjoy the peace of rural mid-Devon and soak in the prana of nature. A chance to unwind and revive. We’ll be practising yoga, doing gardening, cooking, eating and meditating together.

This is a retreat for people at an intermediate level either through longer experience or strength and flexibility through other fitness or dance. We’ll be holding postures longer, doing more advanced variations and extending pranayama.

Cost: £260 in comfortable single sex dorm accommodation (no bunk beds!)
