Into Yoga and Nature Yoga Retreat UK Program

Mornings will be dedicated to yoga, and you will have plenty of time to deepen your practice plus immerse yourself in body and mind practices, learning sequences from a complete system of ancient yoga.

You will also have the opportunity to get involved in cooking healthy organic vegetarian meals. After lunch there will be the opportunity to enjoy guided walks together, length suited to individual requirements. During these walks, you will forage for wild foods bringing your harvest back for cooking and sharing.

This is a budget retreat at Blackadon Barns on the edge of Dartmoor with yoga teacher and outdoor leader, Liz Turner. Enjoy three days and two nights that will include yoga classes, wild food foraging and cooking, Dartmoor walks, time to rest and restore, and cooking delicious healthy vegetarian food (dietary needs are catered for).

Liz Turner teaches Vinyasa Krama yoga, paying attention to people’s individual needs with an approach that is mindful and authentic, with breathing and meditation. She has also led many nature walks focusing in particular on the food and medicinal uses of trees and other plants.

In return for this reduced price, Into Yoga and Nature asks that you provide them with a testimonial and consent to the use of photos, and that you get involved in the enjoyable activity of group cooking and washing up.
