Saturday lunch – There is a great little café in Totnes, we’ll drive there – it takes about 5 minutes.
Sunday lunch – on me, a selection of veggie soup, salad,cheese, bread, and fruit. After lunch we can walk in the magical, informal castle grounds, below Berry Pomeroy Castle ruins.
Walk details – the castle walk is quite steep, just at the very beginning, so bring a stick if you need one, and walking boots/shoes. 95% of it is level and easy.
The countryside here is stunning, there are no shops, little traffic and very few people.
Please bring – yoga mat, light blanket, water bottle, and cushion or block for sitting comfortably if needed.
I have some blocks, bolsters, blankets and mats if you are unable to bring your own (please let me know if you’re unable to bring a mat). The floor is wooden, so quite hard, but there are very comfy thick gym mats available to lie on whilst practicing Yoga Nidra.
There is a kitchen with microwave, kettle etc, so if you prefer, or have special dietary requirements, bring your own lunch on either or both days. Likewise your favourite drink if it’s not listed below.
Water, builders and green tea, coffee, apple juice and biscuits/cake will be provided.

Ignore the Satnav directions at the mini roundabout in Berry Pomeroy, they will send you to the wring side of the village. Take the exit signed to the Mare and Foal Sanctuary; almost immediately after turning off, take the second right into the school car park.

Ignore the Satnav directions at the mini roundabout in Berry Pomeroy. Take the exit signed to the Mare and Foal Sanctuary. Almost immediately after turning off, take the second right into the school car park, where there is ample free parking. The hall is next to the school, walk through the little garden area and the door will be open.
