About The Retreat
Picture beautiful geodesic domes in a wild meadow, on a hilltop overlooking the sea, just on the border between Devon and Cornwall. We have exclusive use of this eco-friendly site, with solar-powered showers, compostable toilets and a shared kitchen camp dome. Yoga will be outside or in our private yoga studio, just a 3 minute walk away. There will be big brunches, picnic lunches and pub dinners. Walks from our site take you down into Kingsand/Cawsand, two beautiful old smuggling villages, where you can find great pubs, pasties, beaches and where we will be paddle boarding. Settle into your dome and explore the site, before our opening circle and meditation. There will be a surprise workshop with one of our favourite Wild Times collaborators, paddleboarding down around the cove on the sea, coastal path walks in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and even a trip to the pub (if you like!) Mornings will bring meditation and dynamic vinyasa yoga, evenings will include yin and yoga Nidra, to nourish you and help you learn how to slow down and properly rest. There will be plenty of free time for relaxing, exploring and simply enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Each luxury geodome has been lovingly furnished using natural and recycled materials. Plants adorn the interior, bringing the calmness of mother nature within. Cozy up by your personal fire pit / BBQ and watch the boats float across the glorious bay. By night, star gaze from the comfort of your 'proper' bed. There is a communal dome purely for cooking and socialising, two hot water showers and two compost toilets. Additional flushing toilets are a 5 minute walk away, near the old barracks which also contains our yoga studio space. All the food will be nourishing belly timber. Friday night will be a welcome chilli by the fire pit. Saturday and Sunday will include buffet brunches for everyone to enjoy after yoga, and picnic lunches so you can go and explore if you like. Saturday night will be an optional pub dinner down the hill in the village, or alternatively you can cook in the communal tent or even get pizza! There will be a hot drink station for you to help yourself to throughout, with herbal teas, coffee, fresh mint, lemon and ginger, and fruit and snacks available. We can cater for dietary requirements if you let us know beforehand.

Travel to and from the retreat
The Wild Times is nourishment for the soul, the retreat jen has created not only connects you back to nature but takes you on a journey back home to yourself. I left with a smile and a full heart. Being a newbie to yoga I was made to feel welcomes by all and guided beautifully in our morning and evening sessions, and helped lovingly (with a few giggles) into new poses
