October 20 Yoga Nidra Day Retreat: Autumn leaves

A warm welcome to the Autumn leaves Day Retreat 

As the season changes to Autumn we acknowledge the changes of season in our lives, fruits and the dark harvest of what didn’t happen, and look ahead to a time of introspection. How would we like these darker months to bear fruit?

Yoga in tranquil Devon
The peace of rural mid Devon at this change of the season is the setting for relaxing and letting go so that new insight and inspiration flow. As well as yoga practices we’ll be imbibing nature’s autumn glory.

Mixed ability yoga
This is a retreat for anyone, including those new to yoga. In this day retreat being ‘able’ is more about the willingness to go within and use the breath than trained physical strength or flexibility.More experienced practitioners will have a chance to explore nidra more deeply.

Yogic diet
A yogic diet uplifts and gives energy. We eat fresh, wholesome, seasonal, delicious vegan food made with mainly local organic veg and organic ingredients. Recipes for prana and read more about the veganyogi diet.

feedback from the latest yoga nidra retreat day
I enjoyed the simplicity, quiet and calming feeling of the environment, inside and out. Delicious food. Welcoming, accepting and friendly!

A very safe and comfortable environment. The space feels uncluttered so allows you and your mind to be that as well. Very welcoming. Viveka Gardens has an aura about it so that when you enter through the door, it feels different and you can leave everything else outside.

Fiona opened a door into an interesting way of thinking about and practicing yoga nidra and how it can benefit you in ways I hadn’t considered. It was a fascinating day which has encouraged me to think about so my issues in a different way. The setting is beautiful and incredibly relaxing. Don’t come here on a diet either as the food is gorgeous!

A thoroughly enjoyable yoga nidra day. Fiona created a welcoming and safe space to explore our sankalpa. A lovely yoga studio and delicious food. We created a beautiful mandala using leaves and fruit and flowers. It was a real treat. Louise

A great day to focus on oneself, linking with what is going on seasonally allows us to explore our own lived in a wider context.

Investment: £50 This day retreat includes a yoga class with yoga nidra, a workshop with second longer nidra, karma yoga, a delicious vegan lunch, tea and a snack. Viveka Gardens is keen to make yoga available to all so bursaries are available for those on benefit. Please contact to discuss.
