Devon retreat 



Join us for a nurturing weekend  to recharge & rebalance in nature. 

A long weekend in a cosy farm house to rest and recharge after the fizz of summer. 



This autumn retreat is all about re-centering and grounding  as we shift with the seasons.

This nurturing retreat is all about re-centering and balancing the nervous system as we transition into autumn after the fizz of summer. Finding sanctuary in nature.


Think breath taking Devon coastal countryside and big Autumn skies, transformational yoga in the beautiful yoga barn, holistic massage and cosying up by the fire in the evening.

Deepen your yoga practice and balance your energies with warming vinyasa in the mornings and soothing slow flow and nidra in the evenings. Slip into the sauna and allow your body to unwind. Eat the rainbow with nourishing vegetarian meals prepared by our passionate chef and shared with new best friends.

If you are new here, then welcome, my name is River.

If you are new here, then welcome my name is River and I will be looking after you during the retreat so you feel completely cared for and leave feeling well rested and replenished. It is my absolute joy to create beautiful spaces and experiences for you to escape the weekly to do list and remember what it feels like to just be, to explore, to feel, to heal and to rest. Because you deserve it, it's your human nature. I believe movement is medicine, from solo kitchen disco parties ( you know the ones!)  to the collective energy of flowing with the breath in a yoga class, to getting upside down in handstands or lying horizontal and experience the movement of the cosmos inside my cells, it's all magic!

How you will spend your days..

- Each morning (Saturday +Sunday) you'll enjoy a dynamic, creative Vinyasa class led by River. Suitable for all levels variations will be offered so you can get what you need. ( you just need to be familiar with sun salutations)

- Each evening (Fri & Sat) River will be teaching a nurturing slow flow restorative yoga class with nidra with the option to receive an essential oil head massage at the end.


In between classes you'll have plenty of time to relax by the fire, watch the special autumn sun sets and sunrises, take a coastal hike or swim or even get a holistic massage treatment on site*. There will be a sauna and cold plunge spa session on Saturday with views over the rolling Devon countryside. 

- And of course FOOD. Arguably the most important bit! Breakfast lunch and dinner will all be vegetarian and lovingly prepared by our chef. Tea, coffee and snacks available all day too, so you will never be left hangry.

*We are lucky enough to have Lunari at the farm house offering gorgeous holistic treatments you can book for an extra cost to really help you feel pampered. 

"I feel incredibly fortunate to have found River as my first yoga teacher. Her knowledge, patience, and genuine passion has help me so much. I can't recommend her classes enough!"
