"Eden rise yoga and breathwork weekend. "
The location was excellent really easy to find and just off the M5 whilst still feeling in the middle of no where. Edenrise itself was gorgeous, the perfect countryside retreat!
Ben, Jez and Lizzie made us all feel right at home getting stuck in with our Angel cards and colouring.
The yoga sessions were really well suited for all abilities with bens yin being the perfect wind down and Jez's morning sessions leaving me feeling playful and full of life.
The breathwork sessions were increadible! I found them extremely powerful and the three of them held us all really well, creating a safe environment for us to go deep and be vulnerable.
Being out in the woods with a dip in the cold water was exactly what i needed on Saturday afternoon and a walk always gives you time to chat and bond with people you haven't had a chance to yet.
The Saturday night sauna and fire ceremony were a perfect end to a really magical day!
The food was cooked by Lizzie through out and was increadible. I left feeling wonderfully nourished!
The whole experience has left me feeling full to the brim with warmth and love that I now intend to let spill out into the rest of my life. Thankyou! :)

"What’s not to love!"
I was specifically looking for a yoga and walking holiday to get fitter, relax and deepen my yoga practise. This week surpassed all expectations and I feel fantastic .
Ben is a great yoga teacher, has a real calmness about him and makes you explore not just the physical poses of yoga but your mental and emotional wellbeing. I am very early on in my yoga journey and Ben gave options for beginners to advanced that were suitable for all. The Breathwork was interesting and thought provoking.
Jen’s food was just delicious eating very healthily every day giving the right sustenance to get through the days. I found the hiking hard but with each day I got stronger and could feel my heart pumping that fresh mountain air. The scenery is idyllic so made the hard work worth it. Doing yoga in the mountains was amazing!
Ben and Jen’s company was fab and as a single traveller they made me feel very comfortable and at ease.
I would thoroughly recommend this trip and Ben’s yoga.

"Life changing experience"
I never experienced yoga before so I was very apprehensive before arriving in Devon for the weekend. Ben & Jennifer made me feel very welcome and at ease, guiding me through the entire process. I enjoyed every aspect of the retreat. The programme was designed to accommodate every level of capability and to give you time to enjoy every activity at your own pace.We had plenty of time to really get to know every participant which really helped with dynamics of the group and to make long-life friendships.I fall in love with Ben and Jenny and the entire group of awesome people on our retreat.I really enjoyed every second of my experience. I would highly recommend to everyone as it is only the beginning for me on my spiritual yoga journey.

"A transformative must have experience"
I had booked this retreat as self care purely for me. It ended up being that and so much more. The retreat was really well structured with an overarching theme of looking in and stepping up. The styles of yoga were varied enough to keep us all motivated and inspired throughout, and both Ben and Jen were a joy to be in the company of. The location was easy to find and beautifully laid out. In addition to yoga we had an alchemy of breath session which was incredibly powerful and plenty of time to read and walk around in the beautiful English countryside. The food was fantastic! As well as having the most soothing voice for guided meditation Jen is a sensational chef. I came back feeling refreshed revived and with a new connection to my own energy. I still feel so much power and love and peace even though I've gone from that environment back to the hustle and bustle of London. They gave me a gift. A truly life changing experience. I cant recommend this retreat highly enough! I will definitely be attending their workshops and retreats again in the future.

Firstly, let me say that the whole weekend was amazing and enlightening. However, I loved the way in which Ben seamlessly instructed the yoga sessions accommodating for all abilities. Whilst Ben was on hand to give knowledgeable advice and support, Jen was there with complementing holistic proficiency in the asanas, massage and cooking.

Absolutely every element of this gorgeous retreat was beautifully lead and thoughtfully planned.
Ben and Jen made the entire experience nurturing and nourishing, fun and deeply affecting. I was so inspired by their energy as individuals and as a couple, together they guided and supported each and every one of us through incredibly emotional and spiritual changes. Jen fed our souls and our bodies with gentle kindness and powerful passion, relaxed us deeply in guided meditation and Ben taught us wisely, guided us in amazing yoga sessions and shared his open spirit. They’re phenomenal!
Eden Rise itself is a wonderful facility, located in a lovely part of Devon, that catered perfectly to the needs of the group so that we were all comfortable and relaxed.
To be totally honest, it’s hard to put into words how completely amazing each bit of this retreat was and I have come away from it deeply relaxed, spiritually nourished, full of love, forever changed and with loads of fantastic new friends! WOW! Thankyou so much Jen and Ben and everyone who shared this gift of an experience! Lizzie xx

"Extraordinary experience & environment"
I came to Eden Rise hoping to escape the bustle of London for a little while; and yoga and hiking just sounded like the perfect change from my usual hectic working routine.
I had always loved hiking and enjoyed yoga on and off for some time. However, I would never have hoped for this retreat to turn out to be as relaxing – and dare I say magical ? – treat as it did. Ben was not only a great cook and excellent guide, leading us through the breath-taking beauty of the Dartmoor landscape, but also succeeded in making Eden Rise truly feel like home from the moment of arrival.
The yoga sessions with Jez struck the right balance between energising and soothing. Although challenging at times, they were suited for all abilities and Jez always suggested options for those more or less advanced.
The whole experience – yoga, stunning countryside and meeting so many interesting people from all sorts of backgrounds – left me with an energy and ease that I had not felt in a while and I found myself smiling all the way back to London. Thank you so much, Ben and Jez, for this extraordinary weekend.

This yoga retreat was an extraordinary experience.
My friend and I were expecting some yoga sessions, mindfulness, meditation, quiet time far from London, sunny weather and good and healthy food.... But the experience was just 10 times better & beyond expectations.
It felt like therapy, and very in depth and intense benefits coming with it. Ofcourse this meant that it definitely took some time to feel comfortable back in "real life" afterwards ;-) but so worth it. As discussed with the incredible people there too, these are memories that will remain for a long time with us, as this experience changed us in some ways. Heartfelt thanks to Ben and Jen, you guys are just amazing. I didn't think I'd cry of joy and beauty just looking at you during the alchemy of breath, but I couldn't help ;-) Thank you really.
Also listening to the Spotify playlist helped to keep this incredible vibe inside <3
And the food, I'm your biggest fan Jen, been talking about you guys to everyone I know and will continue to spread the word.
Much love xx
