AMAZING experience! Tranquil and gorgeous! If you haven't tried SUP Yoga yet- you most definitely should!
SUP Yoga - The experience was very rewarding. Relaxing and strenuous in equal measure. A great way to start the day!
A huge thank you for Sunday morning's SUP Yoga for our Hen Party. It was fab and so much fun, all the girls seemed to really love it and it set us up for a super fun day
SUP Yoga – That was amazing, quite challenging, but really, really cool and very relaxed. Lovely feeling of floating on the water and the sensation of being adrift, really enhances it!
SUP Yoga – Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Great way to start the morning!
A month ago I tried my first ever SUP yoga class led by the beautiful Simply Soulful Yoga at Waterborn SUP in Devon. To do downward dog on a paddle board is no mean feet I tell you! We chuckled as we were guided through a meditation into the eye of the storm, and as if by magic the heavens opened. One of the most enjoyable & peaceful ways to spend a Saturday morning. Even if the weather wasn’t as kind as it could have been. Next trip back I’m booking like a shot!
SUP Yoga - The PERFECT way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon. Yoga on a SUP board is EXTRA relaxing!! Loved it ... thank you !!
I'm really glad I've found Donna and her classes, I've done a few of her SUP yoga sessions which are brilliant! You don't need to have SUP'd before, Donna guides you through it with calmness and confidence. It's lovely to be out in nature while doing yoga and then to add in doing it on a board brings a whole new element to the holding poses... it's just great and has me hooked!.... Thank you Donna x
I just wanted to say I enjoyed the SUP Yoga & Beach Retreat so much. You planned it amazingly. The food was fantastic. Yoga sessions outdoors with beautiful scenery and making wonderful memories with beautiful people, nourished my mind, body and soul. Thanks again Xxx
Had a great SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day. SUP was a first for me and really enjoyed it. Donna is a great teacher - very patient and inspiring. The organisation of the day was seamless with the healthy cream tea being delicious!! Would defiantly go on another retreat day. Thank you Donna!
I had my first session doing SUP Yoga and it was amazing! I felt very safe and looked after. The Crabshell was a beautiful setting, and I didn't fall in!! Highly recommend, will definitely be booking in again.
Going to a SUP Yoga class with Donna is one of my favourite things to do because her yoga sessions are great and I really enjoy being on the water - and it does add other completely different benefits to your practice – you are out in the fresh air and hearing outside sounds around you, being on the water is calming and meditative and of course it is more challenging requiring constant focus so you have no option but to be completely mindful! The SUP boards are easy to use and everything is set up for you to just turn up and go with some initial tuition on how it all works. Classes include the cost of all equipment (wet suits if desired too) and you can book easily online.
SUP Yoga was simply excellent and very rewarding. Thank you for being an inspiring yoga teacher and being very good at what you do; professional, calm and gorgeous. Also a brilliant businesswoman too, working with your local communities like the free yoga at Hope Cove this weekend. So looking forward to next Saturday and chance to do it again.

I joined Donna on her SUP yoga and beach yoga retreat this weekend and can not say enough how highly I would recommend this event. This was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time and can honestly say the experience was life changing for me in so many ways - and so desperately needed - it was more than I could have ever hoped for and something I will always treasure - so thank you sooooo much can’t wait for next year xxxx
I was unsure what to expect of a 12 hour retreat day but the reality was more than anticipated. The warm welcome before the SUP
session put me at ease, and from that moment onwards, every part of the day got better and better. Donna is a superb host who
included everyone and checked in on their wellbeing throughout the day. All the locations, suppliers and activities were brilliant. So much food to enjoy, and views that were out of this world.
Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful event, I cannot wait to come back again!
Thank you so much Donna for a wonderful relaxed and inspirational day. I didn’t realise how much I needed time out in the open air
connecting back to nature. I absolutely want to attend more sessions and events. I would recommend anyone who is thinking about taking part in something offered by Simply Soulful Yoga, to just take the plunge, you wont regret it!
Donna was very welcoming and helpful from our first telephone call. I arranged a bespoke package with her for my sister’s 40th Birthday present. With her accommodating attitude we created a fun filled day of SUP yoga and beach yoga with a massage treatment in between at Merrifield House. We both felt at ease in Donna’s capable hands, we’ll look forward to returning soon.
SUP yoga was such a great experience! I started the session with one of my usual stress headaches and by the end of the session it had gone and I felt much more relaxed. At one point Donna told us to remember we could come back to this feeling at any point, and that has really stuck with me.
Thank you Donna, it was an amazing SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day; beautiful locations, great like minded people, stunning locations and each activity/ location well spaced out AND beautiful weather ! Very well organized, I certainly hope to be back next year. Thank you so much (and to Sophie too, hooping was fun!!)
Thank you Donna for an amazing SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day. I would highly recommend. Very well organized, great fun and good for the mind, body & soul.
What a brilliant SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day - energizing, revitalizing and relaxing all at once! A great combination of yoga, SUP and hula hoop in the most amazing landscapes. Thanks so much, Donna!
Such an incredible SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day with lovely people. Thank you so much Donna - Looking forward to next year already.
Such an amazing, uplifting and empowering SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day with wonderful authentic people in beautiful surroundings! Thank you.
The SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day was a blissful day from start up to finish. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you.
Fabulous SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day retreat packed full of different yoga in and off the water, in the best locations with various other precious experiences and supper on the beach and watching the sunset - just amazing!
Thanks Donna for an amazing SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day. The whole retreat was well planned with a gentle pace, never rushed but no hanging about. Amazing locations and clear instructions for them all. I loved all the activities and will definitely return again.
I smiled immediately upon arrival at the SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day. It was such a treat to take time out to enjoy exercise, food and great company in wonderful settings. The next day I woke up feeling recharged, energised and grateful to have experienced such a lovely day. Thank you, Donna - I will have magic memories to look back on and can’t wait to do it again!
The SUP & BEACH Yoga Retreat day was a very well thought out, perfectly coordinated and well-suited to our group demographic (ladies wanting to relax but have fun in a group with the sea nearby!) I felt tired at the end but in a positive way.
After yoga, I feel able to cope again! I feel stronger, saner and spiritually nourished.
Donna was fab from start to finish, having had the pandemic affect our booking she communicated with us really well and on the day she was just great and pitched the [SUP Yoga] class perfectly for the mixed ability in the group. She was clear in her instruction and gave encouragement to us all. Thanks Donna for a yoga class we won’t forget!
This was simply the best yoga [retreat] weekend imaginable - packed with the perfect balance of joyous activities and time for relaxation and reflection - and fantastic food. There was something new and exciting for everyone, both those new to yoga, and experienced practitioners, whether it was the combination of yoga and SUP, giggles during hula or the magical way that Donna themed the yoga to the relevant elements. Nothing was too much trouble, and we felt like welcomed friends into a much-loved home. A huge and heartfelt thank you, for one of the best weekends I have ever had, in such a hidden gem of the South Devon coast.
I had the most relaxed [yoga retreat] weekend with Donna at a friend's birthday. Totally wasn't expecting it to be quite so fantastic! Perfect mix of yoga, SUP, food, chat, relaxation. Accommodation was spotless and welcoming, and the location is stunning. Can't wait to go back!
Thank you for a warm welcome and forever helpful attitude. You have created a beautiful place to come and retreat to, re-energise in and to go away from with goodness inside. All the [yoga retreat] activities were thoughtful and fun. Organisation top notch. Food for the soul.
Donna made my group and I feel instantly at ease. She seamlessly guided us through all the activities of the [retreat] weekend and made us feel confident and inspired to try new things. She is a talented and inspirational teacher, and I came away from my time spent at Merrifield House with her feeling ‘lit up’ yet relaxed. A truly special time, spent in a magical and transformative place. I can’t wait to return.
We had a fantastic [retreat] weekend with Simply Soulful Yoga. It was a perfect celebration for our friend’s big birthday and one that we will all never forget. Donna and Marcus were fantastic hosts - a weekend is only that much fun and goes that smoothly with a lot of care and attention. Highlights included SUP yoga and campfire music. I came back full of energy with so many happy memories! Thank you.
Donna created an amazing and wonderful [retreat] weekend for us all. Everything was thought of. Loved the outside space and the communal area was perfect. The yoga was great and location beautiful, Kingsbridge and Hope Cove are hidden treasures. Thank you so much Donna xx
I cannot recommend [Simply Soulful Yoga retreats], highly enough the experience my friends and I had at Merrifield House last weekend, to celebrate my birthday. Donna and Marcus are incredibly hospitable hosts, and nothing was too much trouble and Donna is an amazing and inspiring Yoga teacher. We enjoyed SUP boarding and SUP Yoga, beach yoga, hula hooping, wonderful accommodation in their gorgeous corner of Devon, all topped off with a firepit and live music in their top field. Really, really magical. Highly recommend!
I recently spent a wonderful weekend at Merrifield House to celebrate a friends birthday. The welcome from Donna and Marcus was warm and heartfelt and the accommodation was calming and beautifully clean. We spent our time enjoying SUP, SUP yoga, beach yoga and hula hooping. We watched the sun go down whilst sitting around the firepit and listening to live music - the perfect end to a truly memorable weekend. I would recommend Simply Soulful Yoga and Merrifield House to all, Donna and Marcus made our weekend - they are an amazing team! Thank you to you both. ❤️
