Welcome to the Devon School of Yoga

The Devon School of Yoga, established in 1989 brings together classes, workshops, retreats and training courses under one umbrella, covering all aspects of the subject. Set in locations around Devon, making yoga accessible, the ideal surroundings are provided for yoga practice, study and contemplation.

The school teaches a holistic approach to yoga. As well as coming from an eclectic base its core practices are based on the Dr. Pillai system of Kriyas, Pranayama and Meditation, and its spiritual energy source comes through Swami Sivananda Paramahamsa (of Kerala, India). The Devon School of Yoga is a member of The Independent Yoga Network.

“Yoga is an excellent, balanced physical discipline. It is a brilliant psychological tool and philosophy for life. Ultimately, it is a uniquely personal and spiritual practice.” - Duncan Hulin, Founder of the Devon School of Yoga
