A special and rare opportunity to learn from peace activist Satish Kumar, practice vinyasa krama yoga and meditation, eat delicious vegan food, meet like-minded individuals and connect with the wild and beautiful land of Cornwall. All inclusive prices from £200-£500.
From Wednesday evening two daily yoga practices will be taught by Ruby and Christabel Reed (founders of Advaya Initiative). These classes will be open to all levels. While building strength and felixiblity over the 5 days, these vinyasa krama classes will also prioritise the development of breath and incorporate elements of chanting, pranayama and meditation. Satish Kumar will join us on Friday evening, leading sessions on peace, ecology, finding purpose, connection and nature.
Vegan breakfast, lunch & dinners will be cooked and prepared by Atty Dickinson, an incredibly talented and healing chef. Atty will create recipes inspired by balancing Ayurvedic traditions using locally sources and organic ingredients wherever possible.
In your spare time you will have the opportunity to relax in the beautiful converted barns, paint, draw and read, go on walks in the surrounding, magical forests, or drive to the stunning beaches and moors for wild swimming and walking.
All inclusive prices from £200-£500 depending on which room you choose or if you decide to camp.

From the Monday-Wednesday before the Yoga retreat begins you may also join the optional pilgrimage with Ruby and Christabel as they walk from Satish’s house in Hartford, Devon, to Carthew Farm in Cornwall. Throughout this walk we will be earth pilgrims, as taught by satish, travellng down the coastal path and delving inland to holy sites and special places from sacred wells to ancient trees, reading the story of the land and healing our connection with it. From Boscastle we will pay homage to the area’s history of Magic and Witchcraft, and walk on to the mythic castle of Tintagel via the fairy waterfalls of St Nectern’s Glen. Resting our heads and hearts between Boscastle and Port Isaac, we will then make our way along the rugged coastline, ending up in Rock where we take the ferry to Padstow
ABOUT SATISH KUMAR:
Raised as a Jain monk from the age of nine, Satish Kumar became a campaigner for land reform at eighteen, working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed India and peaceful world into reality. Concerned about nuclear proliferation, he later undertook an 8,000‐mile peace pilgrimage, walking from India to America with no money; through deserts, mountains and storms to deliver packets of ‘peace tea’ to the country leaders of the four nuclear powers at the time.
In 1973, Satish settled in England when he was invited to edit Resurgence magazine – described by The Guardian as “the spiritual and artistic flagship of the green movement”. Satish is still the editor in chief of Resurgence / The Ecologist. After establishing the pioneering Small School – a primary school based on the holistic educational beliefs and practices of the myriad-minded Indian Rabindranath Tagore, Satish eventually co‐founded Schumacher College in 1991, an international educational centre for the study of ecological and spiritual values.
In 2008, Satish presented a BBC documentary Earth Pilgrim, watched by over 3.6 million people. As a true pilgrim for the Earth and of the Earth, Satish writes, teaches and leads workshops internationally on reverential ecology, holistic education and voluntary simplicity. He is the author of amongst others No Destination, The Buddha and the terrorist and You are therefore I am.
