ASHTANGA WEEKEND RETREAT In the dartmoor national park
Friday 31/08/18 – Sunday 02/09/18
We have been trying to book this venue for the last three/four years and it has always been fully booked but now we are in! Bala Brook is situated in Dartmoor National Park and on the edge of the open moor. There are thirty five acres of delightful gardens, fields, mature oak trees and woodland adjoining the waterfalls of Bala Brook, which tumbles down to join the river Avon. This is a walkers paradise!
There will be an Ashtanga Mysore practice on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday mornings. On Saturday afternoon there will be a restorative practice with meditation and yoga philosophy integrated throughout the practice. We will be bringing our own chef with us, the wonderful Jane Percy-Robb, to prepare some fabulous vegetarian food.
Please note that the price of this retreat reflects the accommodation. We are trying to offer an affordable weekend that is accessible to everyone. If you are looking for a five star luxury this is not the right weekend for you. If you are looking for something which is good value and you are prepared to take your turn at washing-up at the end of the meals then book now. This retreat is limited to 12 people only.
