The Devon
School of Yoga.

The Devon School of Yoga was established in 1989. It brings together yoga classes, yoga workshops, yoga retreats and yoga training courses under one umbrella, covering all aspects of the subject. Our classes and courses are predominantly held in locations around Devon which provide ideal surroundings for yoga practice, study and contemplation.

We welcome students from across the UK and around the world.

Our courses include:

The Devon School of Yoga 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.

Our priority and commitment are to deliver our courses and other events in person. If any weekend on any course are unable to run due to a possible government lockdown, it will be rescheduled. Any rescheduled weekend will be run with in person teaching. However, if on any rescheduled weekend a student feels uncomfortable to attend, it will be offered via online zoom as well. There are no refunds for course fees other than if we have to cancel in which case refunds will be given.

Daily Yoga

Attending a weekly class is a great way to begin a yoga practice but it is when we begin to regularly practice on our own at home that we begin to make real progress. The first step is to make a little time and space in our daily routine to begin our practice.

In this article, Devon School of Yoga teacher James Russell, explores daily yoga practice and gives his advice and encouragement for a successful approach.


Holistic Yoga

Our Holistic Approach.

“Arjuna, those who eat too much or eat too little, who sleep too much or who sleep too little, will not succeed in meditation. But those who are temperate in eating and sleeping, work and recreation, will come to the end of sorrow through meditation.”   Krishna talking to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita.

The Devon School of Yoga’s Holistic approach believes that we are all here to find ways to express our own unique individual creativity.
