Following the success of our previous Dartmoor retreats, we can again offer you the chance to unwind and reconnect with your inner source of joy and well-being. The warm and friendly atmosphere of the beautiful Bala Brook Retreat Centre you will be inspired to deepen your practice with both invigorating and restorative yoga sessions and meditation. During the guided walks we will explore the varied atmospheric landscapes with its tors, water falls and ancient oaks. There will also be periods of silence and mindful walking in nature to further nourish us. Participants on our retreats often comment how well yoga and walking in nature complement each other. Also constantly praised is the imaginative vegetarian food created by our cook Polly – a delicious and important part of a truly nurturing weekend.
