A coastal yoga adventure….. Join me for an action-packed 1-day yoga retreat in an area of outstanding natural beauty within South Devon. Enjoy everything our natural playground has to offer with a full-day agenda including Stand-Up Paddle boarding, SUP Yoga (yoga on a Stand Up Paddle Board), Beach Yoga, Beach Hula Hoop and a Sunset Beach Yoga session. We will also enjoy breakfast, lunch, beach supper and a healthy Devon Cream Tea with spectacular sea views.
12 hours | 4 Meals | 5 Activities | Fun and laughter with like minded folk – What’s not to love?!
A variety of outdoor yoga sessions and delicious food, will energise our bodies and minds; along with other uplifting water and beach activities which will expand and lift our hearts, set this 1-day retreat, as truly one of a kind.
Outstanding natural beauty surrounds us in our natural playground, allowing us to express our love and gratitude for the fresh Devon air around us, the water beneath us, and the fire within us.
Our natural playground: The estuary tidal waters offer secluded creeks, sandy beaches and rolling Devon hills, making Kingsbridge the perfect place to combine yoga and Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP), for beginners and seasoned practitioners alike. Enjoy the ancient practice of yoga combined with SUP boarding as we take our favourite yoga routines from the mat and onto the water! Improve your balance, core strength, emotional and spiritually harmony, as your body works to stay stable on the board challenged by both wind and tide. We will also be visiting the beautiful areas of Hope Cove and South Milton for our beach yoga and other activities.
Food: Delicious wholesome vegetarian and vegan food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus snacks, tea, coffee and herbal teas. Fresh produce sourced, locally and organically (where possible) from Pretty Local. If you have any dietary requirements please let me know at the time of booking, so that I can do my best to accommodate your needs. During our retreat we will also enjoy breakfast, lunch, beach supper and a healthy Devon Cream Tea with the opportunity to eat at two of the many excellent local eateries. All food and drink is included within the price.
Weather: Please note all outside activities are weather and tide dependant.
