YOGA RETREATS WITH Liz Dillon at Eden Rise, Totnes, Devon –
11-13th November 2016 and
10-12th February 2017, 2-4th June 2017
The retreats take place at the beautiful retreat centre Eden Rise with a yoga studio that looks out over the rolling Devon hills.
Previous participants comment on how the moment you arrive at Eden Rise there is a sense of relaxation and feeling of being ‘at home’. We do also welcome you with tea and cake which may add to the warm welcome!
As you walk in May there are the bluebells and little seats made in wood set amongst the trees so you can stop every few yards should you wish and take in the beautiful surroundings and views. The owners of Eden Rise have made many beautiful additions to the natural beauty to make your stay extra special and unique.
When not in the yoga studio or relaxing in nature you will be treated to wonderful organic food lovingly made by Charlotte. All meals are included.
An outline of the weekend..
The retreats begin at approx 3pm on Friday and ends around 3pm on Sunday – to allow time to get to Devon and back – often from London.
The first Yoga class is on Friday evening at 5pm. There will be Yoga Nidra – deep relaxation after dinner. In the morning there is meditation followed by Hatha Yoga class. There is the option for a fresh juice in the morning followed by breakfast feast after the class.
Then there are options for walks, going into Totnes, doing nothing, having a massage/a sauna, before lunch and the next class is again at 5pm. This class combines Hatha Yoga with Restorative Yoga, followed by dinner and an evening activity – often another yoga nidra is offered, sometimes a fire and singing outside, some choose to go to sleep as the process of slowing down can bring about a sense of how much rest our bodies need. All activities are options. on Sunday again we begin with meditation and Yoga practise followed by breakfast, free time, followed by a final yoga class 12.30 – 1.30 and lunch…tea..cake before carriages home!!
The Yoga weekend will offer you a chance to deepen your yoga practise, explore meditation, relax in 7 acres of beautiful countryside and enjoy delicious food lovingly made by Charlotte.
