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 Thursday evening, followed by a delicious dinner. Lila will then lead you through two classes on the Friday and 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. Each morning will start with meditation or a guided walk.

On Sunday there will be a morning practice before breakfast, another shorter class before lunch and the end of the retreat. Lila has a passion for kirtan, enjoy opening your heart in chanting, stilling the senses through meditation and pranayama and opening the body with asana.

Each day after morning yoga and a healthy breakfast, there will be the opportunity to walk, have a massage, relax, explore the moor and wander in nature.

Arrival time on Thursday 11 August is from 4pm onwards. The first yoga session will be at 5.30pm. The weekend will finish on Sunday 14 August 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 food is vegetarian, fresh, local and delicious to support your practise and retreat experience.
