I can't believe that Spring is finally here and a couple of weeks ago we welcomed in the new season at our spring yoga and raw food retreat in Devon. We escaped from the hustle and bustle for a weekend in the beautiful Devon countryside with students travelling from all over the country. Today I am reminiscing on a great weekend with an awesome group of people and I thought that I would share some pictures.
Our venue was fantastic and it was so nice to return to the East Down Centre. It sits on the edge of Dartmoor and is truly a magical space.
The goodie bag for the retreat students was packed full of yogi treats! I included:
- Shadi Activewear Tops & Bag - the leggings I am wearing above are also from Shadi Activewear and I am totally in love with the design and fit.
- Base Fornula Balance Spritz - this smells so good! The perfect blend of neroli and bergamont.
- Yogi tea + Pukka tea
- Yoga Straps
- Lots of love and a thank you note from me!
Our chef Tracy was incredible and served us a wide range of raw vegan meals over the weekend with a few treats and surprises thrown in. My personal favourite was the raw tiramisu cheesecake! I love the way Tracy describes the dishes before we dig in, explaining what is in the food and why it is so good for you.
We did yoga in the morning and evenings with a mixture of vinyasa flow and strala from strong power classes to gentle restorative and meditation. There was something for everyone, my classes are always inclusive no matter what 'level' you might be. To me there are no levels, only yoga!
We did something new this time around in the form of Raw Food Workshops with Tracy. Everyone really enjoyed learning, asking questions and getting stuck in creating raw food.

I am super excited to be leading a summer yoga retreat at East Down in June. Yoga retreats are such an amazing opportunity to connect with like minded people, escape into nature, explore new places and deepen your own yoga practice. I like to keep my yoga retreats small as I feel it allows for more individual attention and personal growth. I like my yoga retreats to be super laid back and fun!
Devon Summer Yoga Retreat - join us! There are currently 6 spaces remaining. I would love to see you there!
