Devon Yoga Festival.
The Devon Yoga Festival is a not-for-profit and non-commercial event that celebrates and embraces the holistic practices of yoga. The festival is set in an idyllic location at the Rill Estate near Buckfastleigh on the edge of Dartmoor and offers comfortable residential accommodation, delicious vegetarian cuisine and a full timetable of inspiring yoga workshops, talks, music and kirtan.
Proceeds from the festival go to the Ganga Prem (the only cancer hospice in North India). The Ganga Prem is based in Rishikesh and has a holisitic, spiritual approach to cancer care. Proceeds also go to the Glacier Trust (developing sustainable practices in Nepalese hill farming communities).
“There was a great choice of workshops, at times it was hard to choose and I could probably have filled another couple of days trying everything. It was good that some workshops were repeated, I managed to do most classes I wanted to. The teachers were really inspiring, I met some lovely people and had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. The venue was lovely. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and perfect for our visit. The food during the festival was outstanding.”
