The Old Rectory is a large and spacious 19th Century country house situated in the unspoiled North Devon countryside, nestled between Exmoor and Dartmoor. This beautiful venue is both luxurious and homely, offering the perfect charming setting for our yoga retreat. Set in 5 acres of landscaped gardens and 14 acres of river meadows, the scenery is definitely worth escaping the city for.
Originally built in 1826, The Old Rectory boasts many of its original features, including a Grade II listed Victorian grotto. The house is traditional with a contemporary twist and includes culturally diverse art and craft collected by the present owners.
With stylish, quiet and warm bedrooms you will have a comfortable place to rest and relax, and even blankets and hot water bottles to keep you extra cosy at night. The venue also boasts a yoga barn, swimming pool, infrared sauna, tennis court, gym and wifi.
All meals are freshly prepared, healthy and nurturing with a macrobiotic influence. Using organic and local produce, the foods during this weekend help support your wellbeing, cleansing and nourishing the body form the inside out and creating balance within.
All yoga classes are suitable for all levels, including complete beginners.
Morning and evening yoga sessions will be led by our very own co-founder and yoga teacher Natasha Moutran. Natasha has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 10 years and loves sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm with her students on retreats.
Her teaching style is creative, encouraging and nurturing. The morning sessions are energising, fun and just the right amount of challenging with a lighthearted manner, leaving you feeling relaxed and smiling. Evening sessions are restorative and balancing to help calm the nervous system and restore body, mind and soul. Natasha aims to inspire people and support them in becoming the best version of themselves through the work that she offers.
The surrounding area is the perfect place for taking in the fresh air walking or hiking. There is a choice of 2 local hiking trails, 40 mins - 1hr & 20 mins, or for the more active, going for a run.
There is also a gym if you wish to make it a fully active weekend and wish to do some other exercising between your yoga classes.
