What a brilliant body-boost of an idea! Combining multiple daily yoga sessions with invigorating coastal hikes and refreshing sea swims, this Devon retreat centre offers a range of seasonal top-ups, day retreats and bespoke options in a choice of three luxury locations around the beautiful South Hams.
Run by qualified yogi Natalie, plus her team of chefs, a paddle-board instructor and water safety expert, she aims to restore and refresh you while putting the treat into retreat. After suffering burnout and incessant pain due to stress combined with a spinal condition, scoliosis, Natalie left her jet-setting corporate lifestyle, undertook 500 hours of yoga training and returned from Seattle with her family to her native Devon to launch Yoga Field & Sea.
There’s loads of choice for the time-poor, so you can choose from a selection of day retreats, 5-day retreats in spring, 4-day luxury glamping in summer, and autumn and winter detox retreats. New for June and October 2024 is a retreat aimed at serious open water swimmers, taking in some of Devon’s most iconic swims, including the Dart 10k, the ever-popular Bantham Swoosh and a circumnavigation of Burgh Island.
While the summer retreats are held in beautiful bell tents at a National Trust farm, near Salcombe, during the colder months you’ll enjoy luxury 5-star coastal accommodation at their bespoke architect-built eco home, suitable for singles, couples or groups of gals, at either Higher Poole, Slapton Sands, or the boutique style Old Bakehouse at Torcross.
And you won’t be doing it on an empty stomach. Natalie employs a team of talented chefs, who cook up a menu of healthy, wholesome food and – don’t worry – morning espresso and the odd glass of wine is positively encouraged.
Now in its fourth year, Yoga Field & Sea has a legion of loyal fans. Their first spring retreat was so popular that 9 of their 10 guests re-booked straight away for the following year, and 40% have rebooked already for next year. So don’t dilly-dally – get moving!
