Summer is such an exciting and energising time. There is nothing better than heading to one of the most beautiful places in the world of a weekend of yoga and utter escape. We are heading back to the wild of Devon for our third annual Devon Summer Yoga Retreat! East Down is a truly tranquil place with an essence of magic about it that keeps us coming back season after season. This three day yoga journey will wake you up you from the inside out, nourish your body and mind. We will be using our yoga practice to create space, release that which is no longer serving us and calm our body and our mind. It is the perfect well-being escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Join me for invigorating yoga classes, peaceful meditations and lots of super healthy, delicious raw food made with love by our private chef. This retreat will be extra special as we are holding a scared cacao ceremony of Saturday evening – releasing negative emotions, and connect to pure heart energy. It is going to be a truly transformational retreat not to be missed!
There are only TWO spaces left for this retreat!

Hi! I’m Jayne and I am a Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher and Strala Yoga Guide. My classes are a dynamic Vinyasa Flow combined with Strala, integrating alignment, core work, and breathing techniques with basic poses and creative sequencing. My classes are all about moving with ease, creating space and feeling good. Strala is Swedish for “radiating light” – and that’s just how you feel after a practice with me. Lit up from the inside. Classes are designed to activate your body’s relaxation response and reach that elusive flow state. At the end of a class, you feel energised, super-charged, and just ah-mazing.
Each class is designed to energise the body, cultivate a meditative consciousness, and give greater vitality and health. I like to create classes with playful sequencing and approach classes with honesty and humour. The classes are designed to be suitable for all levels. You can read about me here and check out my yoga classes on YouTube.
I like my retreats to be relaxed so feel free to do all or do nothing, everything is optional. Don’t worry about not being good enough (you are!), or coming alone (you will make friends). This weekend is for people who are looking to deepen their practice, try something new, and either totally relax or explore the surrounding area.
