Ideal for special occasions and getting together with friends and colleagues. Jill’s yoga is suitable for all abilities and beginners are most welcome.
Imagine a retreat set in the midst of the Devon countryside, on the edge of Dartmoor and just 20 minutes drive from Exeter.
Imagine a dedicated yoga studio where you can enjoy a leisurely yoga and relaxation practice during the morning. Hatha yoga is suitable for beginners as well as those with a regular practice
Jill Hurley is a British Wheel of Yoga qualified instructor with over 40 years of experience.
The Yoga practice is followed by a 3 course vegetarian lunch catered to suit your dietary requirements. While you eat your lunch enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Lynda is passionate about cooking and prepares the lunch using only high quality fresh ingredients. In the afternoon you can choose a complementary therapy such as aromatherapy massage, sports massage, reflexology, or Indian head massage.
There is also time to enjoy the steam room and relax in the hot tub. If the weather is good spend time enjoying the peaceful garden with stunning views across across Dartmoor. Pamper Days are usually on Saturdays throughout the year.
We also are happy to arrange a special day to suit your group (maximum 8). People usually book for special occasions such as birthdays and Mother’s Day or simply to enjoy a relaxing day with family, a group of friends or colleagues. Please let us know your requirements.
Just to say a huge thank you for such a lovely day on Saturday. As usual Jill’s yoga was top notch and your hospitality, including the fabulous lunch, was wonderful (thanks also to David who looked after us while you were busy in the afternoon). Please also pass on my thanks to Theresa who with her skilled massage eased my painful neck.
It was lovely to spend a relaxing day with my girls and one of the best Christmas presents I have received. I really would hope that we can repeat the experience another time.
Thought the picture below might make you smile.
I’ll look forward to seeing you again at Alphington one day.
With best wishes
Jenny, Megan and Kirsty
A huge thank you Lynda to you and Jill for such a wonderful day. The yoga, treatment, lunch and location are all wonderful, and combined together, make for a really special day. And meeting such a lovely bunch of other people was the icing on the cake.
Warmest good wishes,
Thank you all for a wonderful day in the country. Weather glorious. Yoga is such a tonic for my aches & pains. A fabulously delicious lunch & a relax in a soothing hot tub & finally a great back massage which has definitely freed up my shoulders. Finally a cuppa & cake & relax in the sun to this view. Ace.
Dear Jill and Lynda,
Just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful day on Saturday. We were so grateful to be able to come and relax in your beautiful home Lynda. Thank you for the hospitality and delicious food.
Jill the yoga was absolutely wonderful. Everyone loved the beautiful words and the long strong lengthening!
We've all been a bit frazzled and the day was such a tonic.
