Womans Well-being Yoga Retreat
Time & Location
About The Event
This two day retreat is aimed to give you time, to stop. Nurture your body with wholesome nutritious meals, reconnect with your soul and relax in a calm space where you don't have to think about anybody but yourself. High Nature Centre is a little haven set back on a coastal plateau 130m above sea level. Just 15 minutes from Kingsbridge and a 20-minute walk from East Portlemouth's ferry steps which link directly to Salcombe, the centre is easily accessible and boasts plentiful parking.
The retreat will include 3 yoga sessions that aim to match the cycle of the day. Energising practices will help you to begin your day and restorative yoga will compliment afternoons of relaxation. Each of you will receive a sumptuous 30 minute massage or reflexology session tailored to meet your requirements. There will be optional workshops that promote a happy healthy, sustainable lifestyle and all of your meals will be cooked by Cathryn, who loves to use organic, local and seasonal food. Where she can, she’ll use produce grown on site.
