4 Day Autumn Yoga Retreat in the Hamlet of Lee, Devon | 17-20 September / 1 – 4 October
Come relax in woodland cabins nestled in four acres of private woodland in the sleepy village of Lee, North Devon.
This retreat is suitable for anyone who’d like to get away from the pressure of life, take time out in nature to relax, nourish and energise with wellness, healthy plant based food, yoga and learn how to manifest your deepest desires. All levels are welcome and you can take everything at your own pace.
The Cleave boasts a brand new yoga studio, and infinity deck which offers views that not only take your breath away but offer a deep sense of relaxation whilst you participate in asana, pranayama, and meditation.
These practices will not only relax you but will help to increase oxygen flow, balance, clarity, and promote a peaceful mind and an open heart.
All asana practices are based around heart openers so you will experienced a deep sense of love for yourself and others.
Yoga nidra, crystal meditations and healing through sound vibrations during a gong bath and crystal bowl meditations will definitely melt away any tension and stress, as well as help connect you to your true self.
Positioned on planetary ley lines, The Cleave is simply a magical place on earth. Anyone and everyone who is lucky enough to come to The Cleave leaves feeling energised, relaxed and centred. Combine this amazing setting with the practices of yoga, meditation, sound healing and self exploration you really will leave here feeling on top of the world! In fact, you won’t want to leave!
You will stay in one of our three delightful cabins for two people, (twin or super king bed) as well as have access to a modern fitted woodland shower room.
There are three cabins in the woods. Mole cabin, Badger Cabin and Toad Hall. There are twin beds in each cabin but if your prefer these can be connected to make a super king bed. (Please request)
Toad Hall is located at the top of a steep woodland path. Handrails and lighting are there to guide you. Due to the distance there is no running water in this cabin, but the views certainly make up for it! Water containers with plenty of water are supplied.
The retreat starts Friday at 15.00 and finishes Sunday evening, leaving Monday morning at your leisure.
