What Sundari has created here is really special! So much thought and wisdom put into making a spiritual and cleansing environment. I felt welcomed and accepted – and left feeling refreshed.  Jasmine May 2018 

Had a wonderful retreat day at the yoga farm! Fiona (Sundari) was so kind and thoughtful and tailored the yoga classes to our needs. Had delicious indian vegetarian lunch and a walk through the meadows to look at the trees planted. Such a beautiful and healing place with lovely energy. Would highly recommend. Karen May 2018

Yoga Nidra

A wonderful practice, and very well-timed for me. It’s had a significantly profound effect on me at a point in my life where I’m leaving my career and moving forward into new things. Angela, Tavistock

Yesterday was a truly wonderful experience. I feel an amazing sense of clarity today. I also slept for 13 hours solidly… Thank you so much. LC

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

The purpose of a retreat is to leave behind mundane matters to go within and find inspiration. At Viveka Gardens Yoga Farm we facilitate a space for this. We follow a vegan yogi diet, always tasty, nutritious and filling. We practice yoga, yoga nidra, meditation and simple sitting in nature. And food growing!
