About the Sadhana retreat
Led by Raquel, our Sadhana retreat returns in September 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. Raquel 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
Such a fabulous few days away with the fabulous, knowledgeable, funny, intelligent, teacher, Raquel. She has the best way for weaving Yogic philosophy, history with Breathwork and Asanas. We all feel lighter and wiser after an immersive retreat with her. Such a wonderful and intuitive teacher.Jasma
Had an amazing weekend and the warm weather was a welcome bonus!! Nadia is an excellent masseuse and gave me one of the best massages I’ve ever experienced. Charlotte provided the most delicious food which really made the experience for me. The venue is in a beautiful spot and the yoga studio was lovely.Rebecca
