Summer Reconnection- Yoga and Holistic Living
Bala Brook, Dartmoor, Devon
18th-20th July 2022

Would you like a summer break that helps you connect deeply to your true nature and to the world around you?

Would you like to share time and space with others who value holistic living?

Would you like some fresh inspiration for living more mindfully and healthily?

Open to everyone, our Summer Reconnection offers you the chance to immerse yourself in a wide variety of practices enabling profound transformations to occur and allowing you to return home refreshed and inspired.

  • Gentle Hatha Yoga - connect to your true self
  • Meditation - be here now
  • Pranayama - breathwork to recharge
  • Bhajans - singing from the heart
  • Relaxing - massage, walking
  • Mindfulness of eating - for improved digestion
  • Yoga Nidra - transformative inner journeying
  • Fire and Water Ceremony - activate your inner fire and harmonise your emotions

The retreat offers a wonderful mix of practices and in this way offering a rich experience of holistic living. The asana practice will be gentle and accessible to all and the meditation practices will be simple and include many practised lying down to facilitate profound relaxation on a cellular level and the chance to release somatically-held trauma.

Meal times will offer the chance to eat mindfully and the evenings will be devoted to discussion, sharing, singing and ceremony.

You will receive a gentle, easy and healthy detox as we share the healing practices of yoga and enjoy balanced cleansing food. Set at a stunningly beautiful and peaceful natural location, there will be time for silence, sharing and for music. Suitable for both beginners and the more experienced; individual attention will be emphasised.

The pace of the retreat helps participants to remain engaged throughout. The schedule is designed in such a way as to balance activity with rest, discussions and socialising with quiet, reflective time, and earnest inner exploration with fun and laughter.

The retreat experience can be deep and transformational, and we put a lot of care into setting up an environment that is safe, nurturing, friendly, relaxed and supportive. At Holistic Yoga Retreats, we are committed to promoting improved health, wellbeing and understanding, for the benefit of all sentient beings.

The food served will be delicious, nutritious and especially suitable for practitioners of yoga and meditation. It will be organic, mostly locally sourced and PEOPLE ON VEGAN AND GLUTEN FREE DIETS ARE MOST WELCOME! The food and practices will offer a gentle and healthy way to detox.

In the evenings we will enjoy the chance to sing together. With no need for musical ability, singing is a gentle form of exercise - it works the lungs and heart, oxygenates the blood and generates endorphins - happy hormones!

Michelle is a blessed joy to host a ‘sharing’ retreat with. Bala Brook is nourishing in itself . One cannot help but feel a deep sense of peace and joy there. I am looking forward to a longer retreat in the future.

The retreat at Bala Brook provided me with the nourishment and support I was seeking. I would recommend this retreat to anyone looking to begin or deepen their practice.
