Gentle yoga includes breathing exercises, movement, going towards holding of classical yoga postures and a lot of lying down! You will be encouraged to listen to your body and do what is right for you, and adaptations will be suggested. If the group wants a stronger hatha class, we can go for that too.
Restorative yoga is a lot more of lying down, with the body supported for constructive rest of muscles and so tendons and other deep tissue, as well as the nervous system.
Yoga nidra is a guided lying-down meditation for deep rest and personal insight.
“A wonderful yoga retreat in a quiet corner of Devon. Fiona teaches yoga from the heart, and can tell you lots about sustainable food growing too. The farm is a lovely place, away from it all – as soon as you walk in you relax. Warmly recommended” E, Madrid
What a joy to meet Fiona and spend time at Viveka Gardens. My spirit, my body and my mind were gently nourished with yoga, meditation, beautiful vegan food and Fiona’s intuitive care of her guests. Bliss. D, Southend
A wonderful Yoga retreat centre. I cherish my time there and will be back for more nourishing food, astounding nature, restorative yoga and comfortable and clean surroundings. All my senses were attended to and I came home refreshed and able to take on all my challenges. I also met some wonderful people that I hope will become friends. C, Exeter
