Our weekend summer yoga retreat in Devon wrapped up just over a week ago and I can't believe it is all over! We were blessed with gorgeous weather which meant we could take our yoga practice outside onto the yoga deck, with views of Dartmoor and sounds of the birds surrounding us - it was magical.
We were blessed with such a heart warming group of women who came to Devon from all over the country and as far afield as Singapore. Everyone was open to trying new things, having fun in the yoga classes, exploring the area and enjoying all of the amazing food our chef Raw Happy had prepared. Everyone settled in and got to know each other really quickly which I love. If you are ever unsure about heading to a yoga retreat because you don't know anyone don't be! In my experience of leading these weekend retreats everyone is so welcoming and you have made friends before you know it.
My general thoughts and theme for the yoga classes for this weekend was fun, exploration and fearlessness. We had a real mixture of beginners and more experienced yogis in the group and I just loved how much everyone supported one another and cheered on their neighbours when trying something new. It was such a good energy to have throughout the weekend.
The food of course was amazing. We serve a mixture between veggie/ vegan meals and raw vegan meals and cater for everyone. It's not a detox bootcamp so we never will starve you! During our retreats the intention is for you to fuel your body in a healthy and energising way so that you can power through your yoga practices and nourish your body from the inside out.
As always I put together a little gift bag for the yogis (they always go down so well!) here is a sneak peek at what was inside the summer retreat bag:
- Bracelet from MamasZen - snag one of our own with the code 'JAYNEBECCA10' for 10% off
- Yogi Tea
- Pip & Nut squeeze packs
- Vega Protein and recipe cards (not pictured)
- Kind Bar
- Super cute mason jar with straw and lid
- An invitation to join me for yoga aboard the nurturship
