fri 26th - sunday 29th april 2019 

Escape to the country for this weekend of nourishment. It's impossible not to relax and unwind in magical Dartmoor where you can stop, breathe and just be. Enjoy energising yoga in the morning, restorative yoga with deeply relaxing yoga nidra in the afternoon, and delicious, organic meals made with love by our own private chef - this truly is a weekend to nurture and restore your mind, body and soul.  

The yoga

You'll be surprised at how different you feel after just a few days. We start each day with tea and snacks, and a silent dawn walk to watch the sunrise. A morning hatha yoga practice follows, working up a real appetite for brunch!

After brunch there is free time for walking the green hills, playing with Brian the pet dog, reading, or simply catching up on sleep. The evening brings a gentle and restorative yoga practice to calm the mind and relax the body, ensuring we are ready for dinner. All activities are optional, you are invited to do as little or as much as you like.

Arriving from 5pm on Friday and leaving around 2pm on Sunday, this weekend will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and revitalised. Click here for a draft schedule.

The food

Nemia is a much treasured part of this retreat, and her 5 star organic, nutritious and simply delicious food will leave you feeling nourished and replenished. Catering for gluten, diary, wheat and refined-sugar-free diets, Nemia prepares all meals from scratch, with love. From energy balls on arrival, early morning snacks, an amazing brunch including eggs, porridge, scrambled tofu, fresh fruits, granolas, yoghurt (dairy and non-dairy) and a range of tea and coffee, lunches of soups and salads and bread, and vegan and vegetarian dinners good enough to convert any meat eater, not to mention her famous desserts (including Mel's favourite - crumble!), Nemia truly puts the nourish into this retreat.

The venue

Eastdown is located close to Totnes, meaning it is easy to find and yet completely idyllic. With alpacas, grazing nearby, easy to access footpaths, and a beautiful peaceful feel throughout, there's a good reason that Eastdown is called the breathing space! With an original thatched roof and charming wooden furniture throughout, your stay here will leave you feeling truly rested.

“This retreat has given me the chance to reconnect with myself and find stillness. It has been a peaceful experience and I am determined to take away what I have learned into my life. Thank you.”
