SOUTH ENGLAND YOGA AND MOVEMENT RETREAT
20th-22nd March 2020
Sidmouth, South West England
David and Ellie Tilston
After a few requests we have decided to host a full board movement retreat in the UK at the start of next year.
This will include a wide range of yoga and bodyweight movement modalities and all participants will be provided with a personalised programme to follow at the end of the 3 days.
For anyone that has participated in one of our previous retreats, workshops or online programmes (or even as a complete beginner); we will be looking to help you develop your practice, teach you new skills and teach you how to build your own weekly fitness routine to compliment your current and future lifestyle.
We will be staying at the incredible Boswell Farm, a family run premises with a number of large cottages and separate studio with heated floor that overlooks a stunning valley. This studio receives the first sun of the day and is perfect for 18-20 people
