Happy Monday happy people! I must apologise at the fact that this post has been a long time coming but it's here at last. We had a fabulous time at the Devon weekend yoga retreat back in July. It was my first yoga retreat which I have led so it was extra special for me. We had a group of truly awesome yogis from all over the UK, my friend and fellow yoga teacher Tracy made the amazing food. Kayleigh my best friend came to join in and help out and Matt helped with peoples bags, went on a tea run (it is England, after all) and drove me to the venue - he stayed at his parents close by so he was ready to come over just in case! I thought I would share a few pictures with you of the weekend.
The accommodation and setting was just beautiful. The views of the rolling moorland, the fresh summer air and the sounds of nature were a perfect holistic setting. The yurt where we held out yoga and meditation classes was just magical, it had such a great energy. I think everyone felt they were truly blessed to be in such a wonderful setting.
The yurt was beautifully decorated by the owners with knitted flowers and wall hangings. I brought along some dream catchers and lanterns for some finishing touches.
The food was incredible and expertly created by our chef Tracy. The whole weekend consisted of raw, gluten free, vegan meals to nourish the body. Tracy took the time at the beginning of every meal to explain what went into each dish and the health benefits of each ingredient. The dishes were delicious, filling and wholesome. My personal favourite was the salted caramel cheesecake on our first evening.
I have two retreats organised for 2016 already - I know, super organised right? The details of the first one of the year - a yoga and raw food workshop retreat in March - are up and you can book your space now. Spaces are limited to just 12 yogis and there is a special offer for just two spaces if you are on a tighter budget!
