A Celebration of the Sacredness of Life


Held on Embercombe’s beautiful 50 acre grounds, we invite you to rediscover yourself, rediscover your connection with nature and the interweb of all life.

When we connect with the Earth and the nature beings surrounding us we open to bountiful wisdom and nourishment on every level, awakening to guidance and insights that light our path.

This retreat is a deep dive into the beauty of healing ourselves to heal our planet, by embracing the transformational power of music and dance, singing and mantra, the ancient wisdom of yoga and ceremony, nature and community.

Our intention is to explore how we can create a way of living that honours all of life and nature, as well as our true selves and our soul purpose.

Guest Facilitator

Yasmin Kay - Yoga Teacher

We are delighted to welcome guest facilitator Yasmin Kay. Yasmin creates a warm and nurturing space to explore yoga gently and intuitively. She encourages you to soften into the practice by listening to the wisdom of your own body and breath and responding to the sensations you feel. She enjoys weaving the beauty of nature into her classes with words, gestures and visualisations to create a colourful journey into our shared wholeness.



Embercombe is an eco-friendly venue on a beautiful 50 acre rewilding estate on the edge of Dartmoor. It is a place to find a deep connection with nature – wild nature around us and wild nature within us. It is a place to breathe, to reconsider, to regenerate and to relearn. It is a place to find the gifts that we have to offer right now in the beauty and peace of Nature.

We encourage you to take a look at Embercombe’s website to get more of a feel for the place:  


Yoga Space

Embercombe’s huge main building offers us a space where we can ensure everyone will have two meters of space around them for the yoga, dance and other group sessions in the event we need to uphold social distancing precautions due to Coronavirus. The main hall also has two enormous wood fired stoves which will keep us warm and cozy in the evenings and early mornings even if we need to open windows and doors to ensure ventilation.


You will stay in one of Embercombe’s beautiful yurt villages or funky retro buses! Each yurt or bus is furnished with comfortable beds and a wood fired stove, kept warm by Embercombe’s caring staff. Both yurt villages have compost toilets and running water. Full bathroom facilities with hot showers are available in the main building.  


Embercombe’s devoted chefs provide delicious, vegan, locally sourced and mostly organic meals, refreshments and snacks to give you the energy you need during your visit.
