Deeply relax, re-energise, take time for yourself and have fun on the ultimate long weekend yoga retreat Cornwall.
Take deep breaths of fresh sea air, slow down, relax and revitalise. You’ll completely recharge your body and mind on your inspiring escape, staying in your unique yurt near Fowey, Cornwall (one of the most beautiful places on earth). You’ll energise with uplifting yoga classes and delicious, nutritious food then unwind with guided relaxation sessions and beautiful coastal walks. Start looking forward to floating away under the stars in the wood fired hot tub and relaxing around the camp fire!
On our yoga retreat Cornwall you can stay in gorgeous Mongolian-style yurts. They’re the ultimate in luxury camping and offer a unique back to nature experience. The wood-burning stove in the yurts will keep you warm on cooler evenings. Solar powered fairy lights add to the magical atmosphere. Each yurt has its own fire pit. We’ll be cooking on an open fire and relaxing around it to enjoy the bright stars at night. What a wonderful adventure!
The yurt’s contain a double bed and single futons as well as flowers from the garden, beautiful bed spreads and colourful rugs. The bathrooms are a short stroll away.
NEW FOR 2017
In the converted barn space along with our yoga studio are two light and lovely rooms. The master bedroom has it’s own ensuite and can be made up as a super king size bed or a twin room. There’s also a simple twin room with a bathroom just across the hall 2 metres away. These can be shared between 2 or booked privately.

Taking the time for myself in such a beautiful, natural and welcoming environment has done wonders, I felt calmer and more at peace than ever. Jen really does put her heart and soul into planning the weekends perfectly, the sessions were wonderfully varied and tailored to the time of day and length of the weekend. Her cooking is really impressive, everything was dairy & gluten free and still managed to be delicious and super satisfying, my skin and digestion are still reaping the benefits and I'll definitely be trying some of the recipes at home! Overall, Jen is a wonderful instructor, she is patient, encouraging, has a lovely soothing voice and encourages a bit of a sense of humour! I had a fab, fab time and will seek her out for another retreat in the future.

Here’s an example of what one wonderful retreat day could look like to give you an idea.
One of the most rewarding and awesome things about yoga retreats is the amazing like minded people you will meet on the retreats. Everyone goes away with pages of their notebook full of books to read, films to watch, podcasts to listen to as well as new friends. The weekend is filled with laughter and conversation and fun and you’ll be amazed how quickly you make wonderfully supportive friendships.
Yes, we eat our meals together and people tend to group together to participate in activities, take a walk or just have a nice chat but everyone also has time to themselves to read,relax in the hammock, meditate or nap in their yurt.
You are welcome to arrive any time after 4.30pm on Friday evening. There will be a gentle evening yoga session to work out the travel kinks and start the relaxation process followed by a welcome dinner.
The weekend will end with a morning yoga session and breakfast before checkout at 10am on Monday morning. If you are unable to stay till Monday you can plan to head off on Sunday instead.

I feel so pampered and energised, inspired and relaxed! With the dynamic yoga classes and Jen's delicious plant based recipes paired with the stunning surroundings and cosy yurts it was the perfect retreat. Can't wait until next time!
I have learnt so much this weekend, not just the yoga but the lovely food and recipes too, I never knew eating healthily could be so delicious! The location was really special. It was so peaceful (apart from our constant laughter!) we felt completely relaxed and at ease to be ourselves without judgement. I also loved feeding the animals on the farm and was only disappointed I was not able to take Larry the sheep home! Jen, your food was amazing. The way the day was split between yoga, free time and dining was perfect. We had a wonderful time on Fowey shopping in the little boutique shops and went to a beautiful beach - you have to try the blackberry ice-cream at Talland Bay! I have recommended this retreat to all my friends and colleagues and will definitely be coming to another! Thank you so much for SUCH an enjoyable time and letting us share this time with you. Lots of gratitude.
Had such a special and restorative weekend, thank you SOooo much. The food was fantastic and has inspired me to get creative again, the yoga was so great, so nice to have the time too to work on poses and try new things, and all with the help of new friends 🙂 I feel inspired to practice more at home now, to work in a more meditative way. Jen's energy was so radiant and welcoming, Shine is the perfect name for it!
I honestly left feeling like a different person!!! Re-energised! Jen and Jess were simply the best yogi hosts. Feel amazing after all the yoga, learning to breathe properly during the classes, wonderful food, location etc ensured the weekend was as relaxed as possible. Already feel more focused (enjoying the moment and just feeling grateful... I have taken so much away from Jen's teaching and outlook on life. Not to mention some new friends and terrific recipes.
An incredible weekend. Every thought made it a wonderful retreat experience, from the location to the teaching, the food and all the little bits like the chakra balancing aromatherapy oils, eye pillows and inspiring readings. Jen's personality is so naturally welcoming and her energy sublime, it set a natural tone for the weekend and I can personally say I felt truly at ease with myself the whole weekend. I feel really inspired to carry on with what I've achieved this weekend in yoga. I'm a happy yogi bunny after this weekend and I've made new friends for life.
Thank you so much for a wonderful Yoga weekend, it was my first ever yoga retreat and I really enjoyed it, the location and the yurts were just beautiful, the yoga classes were a great combination for all levels and the vegetarian food was just AMAZING. I have come home feeling more confident in yoga, healthier and Ishall look forward to trying your recipes out at home x
As a yoga novice I was unsure what to expect but oh my goodness what a fantastic experience was in store. Great atmosphere, wonderful food, yoga I could undertake at my own pace / level and of course Jen was delightful. I have even changed some bad habits since the weekend! In a word, wonderful.
