About the Sadhana weekender
Led by Belle, our Sadhana Yoga weekender returns in July with the primary focus being you. Immerse yourself in yogic practices, nurture yourself and dive deep into the practice. Enjoy the surrounding Devon countryside, eat delicious wholesome food, take a sauna and find the space to breathe.
There will be a full programme of yoga practice as outlined below. Belle will host the weekend and hold the space. Please note this weekend is not suitable for complete beginners - at least one year of practice is recommended.
Just two miles from Totnes, Eden Rise provides a beautiful environment for this Sadhana weekend. Neighbouring land includes wooded fringes, the Harbourne river, sculptures and shrines and the Santa Rosa labyrinth.
Across the three days we will immerse ourselves in a variety of practices as outlined below.

My favourite yoga retreat so far. Just back from a weekend at Eden Rise in Totnes. A lovely group and fabulous teacher. The weekend was well set up for a good balance of classes, workshops, rest and scrumptious meals. it was a blessing, very grounding and nurturing. Thank you. I will be booking up for more retreats with you!Sarah
What a wonderful retreat. Gorgeous place. Wonderful guidance from Belle. Delicious food made by Charlotte and a lovely group of yogis to share it with. It was so enlightening and uplifting. Thank you for organising it all so well.Amaryllis
Many thanks for a great weekend – Belle was a superb host yoga teacher. The food was really delicious and has inspired me. Just long enough to have a quiet time away to read and relax. All the people on the retreat were lovely to get to know too.Mandy
