Feedback from recent retreats

The quiet day retreat at Viveka was utterly wonderful. I’ve been to yoga retreats and workshops all over the world and I feel so grateful to have found such a special place on my doorstep in Devon. Fiona held space beautifully for the group and we were able to relax into deep practice at the physical and emotional level. It was also wonderful to be fed such beautiful nourishing food. It was a much needed day of repose and rest and I will be back as soon as possible! V, North Tawton

I booked a quiet day at Viveka Gardens so I could prioritise myself and find time for peace and contemplation. Viveka is a special place: so restorative and peaceful. Fiona was warm and compassionate and made me feel so cared for. The yoga was nourishing, and the food was superb. I left feeling rested, loved and restored. I’ll definitely be booking again, and I’m keen to try more yoga nidra – sleepy yoga is my kind of yoga! E, North Tawton

“The most lovely retreat day with embodiment, but also wonderfully wise words and practices were offered so it was indeed a holistic retreat. I had some insights that have been very helpful so am really grateful for the day.” O, Bath

Viveka… a calm sanctuary to restore balance, a safe space to feel heard and reconnect to yourself. Fiona has a wealth of knowledge and supported me to deeply relax and give myself some much needed inner focus. Wholesome food, nurturing space. Highly recommend x L, Okehampton
