Fire & Ice: Vinyasa Flow Yoga & Cold Water Immersion Long Weekend Retreat
Yeotown Devon, England
March 14-17th, 2024
I’m looking forward to hosting a special 3 day/3 night Vinyasa Flow Yoga long weekend at my award winning Devon health retreat Yeotown this March. It’s particularly special for me as I haven’t done a purely vinyasa flow yoga retreat at my Devon retreat space in a long time. The theme of this experience explores the contrast between fire and ice, and how by playing with the two, we ignite our inner power, the inner flame – known as agni.
Engaging for both the yoga novice to the more experienced teacher, this retreat will be a deep dive into vinyasa flow yoga. Using creative, bold vinyasa flow sequences, designed to heat us up from the inside out we will stoke and fan our inner fire. Similarly, using the power of Cold Water Immersion, we will work on building an inner resilience and strength. Power in its truest form.
Arrival is Thursday evening (preferably by 5pm however arrival time is flexible) and begins with a shorter flow session followed by dinner. Each morning we will enjoy an extended Vinyasa Flow Yoga practice combining asana, breathwork, mantra and more. In the evenings, we will explore a more restorative, yin style practice. Each day a Cold Water Immersion session will be on offer either in the invigorating Atlantic Ocean or on site in our Cold Water tub. On Saturday, we will enjoy a beautiful invigorating coastal hike along the Southwest Coastal Path. Option to book fantastic massages, specialist treatments and therapies, and enjoy some chill time curled up by the fire with a book and cup of tea.
As always with my retreat experiences, special surprises are in store alongside a delicious, nourishing menu of colourful, nutrient rich dishes and drinks.

Over the years Yeotown itself has been featured in leading design magazines for its stylish, rustic-chic decor and English countryside interiors.
