With comfortable accommodation, lovely gardens and land, Viveka Gardens is an idyllic place to rest and re-ground. Gentle yoga, yin and nidra relax the nervous system and bring you home to yourself. This retreat features food growing sessions, campfire, wholesome food, sitting/lying in the field/orchard/gardens and is for people new to yoga, and with health, fatigue or mobility issues…or who just want a gentle time of it.
At equinox we’ll also be contemplating the harvest of the year and what next for personal goals.

“A wonderful yoga retreat in a quiet corner of Devon. Fiona teaches yin yoga and hatha 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” 🕉 Esther
“A little slice of paradise, we loved it. Amazing venue, we even discovered our horticultural abilities, and the Yoga and the vegan food were excellent. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much Fiona for a wonderful day and the introduction to Yin Yoga” Roberto
“It’s my third retreat here now I think! I love Viveka Gardens and whether it’s a yoga teachers’ retreat, or a general retreat, it’s just what I need to recharge my batteries, connect with people, and immerse myself in my yoga practice. Beautiful space, great food and atmosphere” Camilla
