About the Sadhana weekender
Led by Belle, our sadhana yoga weekender returns in July 2021 with the primary focus being you. Immerse yourself in yoga, nurture yourself and dive deep into your practice. Enjoy the surrounding Devon countryside, eat delicious wholesome food, take a sauna and find the space to breathe.
There will be a full daily 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 yoga 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.

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. Thank you! I will be booking up for more retreats with you!Sarah
Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. It was exactly what the doctor ordered! I live a fairly hectic life so to take a whole weekend for myself to relax, unwind and get a new sense of perspective was much needed and it felt so good.Tom
I just wanted to thank you for such a fabulous yoga retreat. The venue was stunning, food amazing and Belle was such a beautiful, inspiring teacher. This weekend was exactly what I needed to ground myself again. I'm already looking through YOAS retreats to plan my next recharge!Katie
What can I say about Belle that others haven't; I suspect nothing. She motivates, she inspires and she has this way about teaching all aspects of yoga that makes you not want to fail her.Peter
I thought the weekend was excellent. Belle was fantastic throughout and the venue was amazingSiobhan
