Yoga, Paddle boarding, Pubs & Pasties
A summer retreat on the Cornish coast
15-17th July 2022
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.
Location: The Devon / Cornwall Border
Our lovely location is tucked away on the Rame Peninsula, which is often called the forgotten corner of Cornwall as it is tucked away down on the South coast past Plymouth, and less touristy than a lot of the south-west.
The neighbouring villages of Kingsand/Cawsand are set in a picturesque old seaside cove, full of stories of smugglers, a few great old pubs (some right on the water's edge), beaches and plenty of places where you can buy a pasty.
Our domes are set up on top of our private wildflower meadow, just a 20 minute walk away from the villages. The domes look straight out onto the sea.
There is a special type of calm in this little corner of the country that is hard to find and special when you find it.
A few minutes walk from our site takes you to the old barracks, now home to our yoga studio, an eclectic mix of artist and music studios, and the wonderful Maker Canteen cafe (which is run by an ex river cottage chef and does out-of-this-world brunches!
