My retreats are designed to heal, rejuvenate and relax you..

It's time to come back to yourself, remember who you are, love yourself and feel grounded and present.

Increase happiness, feel more focused and get ready to face any challenge by clearing blockages, rebalancing your mind, body and spirit.

 

This retreat will help you feel peace in your mind and love and happiness in your heart.

3 Days of Bliss

Connect yourself to the healing flow of the ocean over a long weekend spent camping on Devon's stunning coast. Connect with your mind, body, and spirit through energizing and dynamic yoga flow classes and chilled evening yoga sessions, taught beneath the open, blue skies overlooking the ocean on the sand. 

Unwind in the rhythm of the waves, testing your balance during surfing or SUP lessons, or simply relaxing in the soothing sea. Take meditational walks along sandy shores and unwind around a crackling fire beneath a night sky full of stars.

 

Be present, relax, and lean into happiness as you embrace the quiet power of nature.

We stay 3 nights at Freshwell camping next to the sea, under the stars, do 6 Yoga and Meditation classes over the retreat outdoors or in the village hall. Endless surfing, evening fire pit, optional crystal healing, massage, optional surf lessons and the possibility of SUPing, coastal walks, sea swimming, chilling, beach time, eating together and lots more.

 

The campsite has clean hot showers, toilets, drinking water, washing up points etc. You can camp in your own tent or book yourself into a yurt. Feel free to book any other accommodation of your choice in the small village of Croyde if you don't fancy camping.

Yoga combined with surfing in the ocean will energise, revitalise and relax you (and will be lots of fun!) I believe the ocean is one of natures great healers, it has amazing energy. It is proven that the negative ions near the ocean make you happier. Connecting with nature and the ocean, combined with Yoga and Meditation will be a refreshing, healing, fun experience.

I love Yoga and the sea, so I want to give you the opportunity to experience these wonderful things too!

Yoga and surfing work wonderfully together. Many top pro surfers swear by yoga to compliment their surfing. Yoga helps with being present, building strength, increasing flexibility, enhancing balance, concentration, focus, calm and pranayama increases lung capacity. Yoga helps you surf with more energy and endurance.

 

Yoga helps you to focus in the water and have a personal relationship with the ocean. Whether you are a Yogi looking to try surfing, a surfer wanting to incorporate yoga, to have a lovely holiday or just try something different, this will be great for you.

I organise surf lessons for you, or you can bring/hire your own board and wetsuit and we can surf together at one of the nearby beautiful surf beaches. If you don't fancy surfing you can relax on the beach, explore, have a massage or go for a coastal walk.

New & Full  Moon Yoga special workshops  2023 

Please come and join me under the moon so we can practice yoga, meditations and harness the lunar energy. After practicing we will watch the sun set and the moon rise.

We will let go of things that no longer serve us in the fire pit on the beach on the new moon, and manifest on the new moon.

 

Together we will meditate, let go, and be bathed by the full moon and stars. We will go to the beach afterwards for the meditation, ceremony and ritual with the moon, next to the ocean.

My Story

I had a dream to run Yoga and Surfing retreats for a long time, but I always felt it was just a distant dream that would may never happen. A pipedream. Until I did a meditation in a small ashram on an island off Guatemala.

I stumbled across an ashram which looked lovely with some beautiful big yellow flowers outside. I decided to join a class there.

 

This class changed my life.

 

We did a meditation called I Am. I saw my soul. It was overwhelmingly beautiful. I realised I was capable of doing anything I wanted. I booked my first Surf and Yoga retreat straight away when I got to my next stop on my trip, Costa Rica.

 

I created my first Yoga and Surf Retreat on my phone using the surf hostels intermittent wifi. It seemed so easy because the work was coming straight from my heart and soul. When the retreat came I wasn't nervous at all and loved every minute. I couldn't believe this was my job! Every time I go to Devon and share my knowledge and heart with the yogis, I feel so good like this is what I am supposed to be doing. ''Its the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting'' Paulo Coehlo. I have been in love with the ocean for a long time. Some connection which feels like its been there within me for many lifetimes. ''The tides are in our veins'' Robinson Jeffers.
