New Year’s Retreat


A small retreat for max 6 people. This retreat is for people with some experience of yoga, nidra, meditation, prayer and other trance or energetic bodywork practices, for people who are looking for a calm and possibly part silent time. Yoga teachers, trainee teachers and experienced yogis particularly welcome. Yoga sessions and workshops with nidra and circle will facilitate a review and looking forward process.

Viveka Gardens Yoga Farm: a retreat place where community and visitors can ground themselves through yoga practices and food growing, and so connect with their true self to embody peace and unity.

This weekend will inspire your yoga journey 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. For feedback on Viveka Gardens and Fiona the teacher please look at some nice comments.
