Bespoke Retreat – sample A

“Viveka Gardens and its generous host Fiona provide a peaceful and restful place for a yoga retreat. Food (vegan) was delicious and the yoga was divine (especially the yoga nidra!) and took place in a light and spacious yoga studio, complete with underfloor heating. And the beds are really comfy! Thanks Fiona for a lovely break” Dawn, North London

‘We have been gifted a very relaxed, peaceful and beautiful few days at Viveka Gardens, made all the more enjoyable with your friendship, food and yoga. We wil pass on what a very special place you have here’. B, Oxford

‘I stayed at Fiona’s yoga farm for just one night, but felt like I’d really found a home and that I’d been there a week. It was so utterly beautiful and had a peace and serenity that meant I slept and slept and woke so refreshed. It was wonderful to meet Fiona too, to be made so welcome, to feel so relaxed, and to have so many fascinating conversations. I will definitely return!’ R, Oxford B&B
