About Bala Brook

Bala Brook is nestled in its own valley on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park.

The retreat centre is located beside a fast-flowing moorland brook and surrounded by nature. It offers privacy and tranquillity on retreat in a beautiful and nurturing setting.

The sound of rushing water, the changing of the seasons, the benign presence of the trees, the proximity of the moor, the everchanging colours, the darkness at night, the deep silence – all of this is hugely beneficial to mind, body and spirit.

Retreat programme

The first class will be on Friday evening, followed by a delicious dinner. Clem will then lead you through two classes on the Saturday, a more dynamic morning class to align to body and breath and an afternoon practice to delve deeper into the postures and relax and restore.

On Sunday there will be a morning practice before breakfast, another shorter class before lunch and the end of the retreat.

Between classes there will be the opportunity to walk, have a massage, relax, explore the moor and wander in nature.

Arrival time on Friday 16 February is from 4pm onwards. The first yoga session will be at 5.30pm. The weekend will finish on Sunday 18 February after lunch at 2.30pm.

Things to do

From Bala Brook there are lots of beautiful walks to go on exploring the wild and raw nature of the moor and Dartmoor National Park. There are also plenty of relaxation spots for you to take advantage of in the grounds.

Have a massage, read your book, stomp out across the moor or meander slowly around the garden. Whatever you do, enjoy slowing down and recharging in nature.

Accommodation & food

There is varied accommodation to choose. From single ensuite rooms, twin and triple options plus 2 sweet Kuti, monastic style retreat rooms. All are cosy and comfortable.

All food is vegetarian, fresh, local and delicious to support your practice and retreat experience.

Client Reviews

It was a fantastic long weekend at Bala Brook. Everything worked well in the most beautiful and well appointed of retreat spaces with Bala brook itself alongside, we all loved this generous space. With beautiful starry skies and the Supermoon we were spoiled indeed.
I had a great time! Probably one of the most joy filled retreats I have been on. Thank you for organising such a smooth and well thought out retreat. Clem was a gem and managed to cater for all abilities. She was relaxed and her classes built in simple habits that we could all take away and adopt into our daily routine. This felt like a reset for me and was much needed.
The retreat was brilliant thank you and such a lovely group. Clem was fantastic, just as last time, such a great teacher but also a great host for the retreat - I'll definitely be looking out for which ones she runs next year.
