About the Sadhana weekender
Our annual Sadhana Yoga weekender returns in August 2019 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 daily programme of yoga practice. See below for the sample schedule. Our teacher will host the weekend and hold the space. We look forward to welcoming you.
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.

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. The best part is that I have carried that sense of peace, awareness and control that we blossomed over the weekend back home to the 'real world'. Life is good, I'm heading in the right direction, after clearing space at the retreat I can see that so clearly now.Tom
Rory's yoga classes are excellent. I really appreciate the variation in sequences from class to class, and Rory's attention to detail and ability to describe poses and movements. Rory, you are an inspiring yoga teacher!
The yoga retreat was absolutely amazing - we had a great bunch of yogis and Rory is an excellent teacher who clearly has so much knowledge - it was a pleasure to practice with him everyday. The location was stunning and there really was nothing I can fault!Victoria
Thank you for such a a lovely experience for my first yoga retreat. It was such a beautiful location, the venue was so inviting and comfortable and the food very tasty and plentiful. The yoga was very well paced, taught really well by yourself and Rory and interspersed with pranayama and meditation. I found the observance of 'silent time' liberating and will continue to practice this. I felt calm following the retreat and strangely the following day I also felt really energised. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your retreats and have already mentioned to friends - I will certainly be booking again!
Excellent intensive yoga retreat with Rory Viggers. Learned so many new things, plus the venue and food were lovely.Riki
