WHAT TO EXPECT…..

HIKING

The North Devon Coast is renowned for being an ideal destination for hikers. The unspoiled beauty of Exmoor National Park is exceptional, and the sweeping, picturesque views along the challenging coastal paths are truly awe-inspiring.

We’ve prepared two remarkable guided hikes for the weekend that are guaranteed to revitalise your physical well-being and leave you breathless (in the best possible way!)

There is a shorter and a longer hike option to cater for different fitness levels. Hikes will typically be 3-4 hours long (they are worth it!) and between 4-8 miles long depending on the option you choose. 

The vast expanse of Exmoor National Park provides the perfect setting for this powerful retreat.

YOGA CLASSES

Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a novice just embarking on your yoga journey, we invite you to partake in a transformative experience on the mat. Holly will expertly lead you through a fusion of yoga poses, breath techniques, and guided meditations designed to empower you to shed old habits, release what no longer serves you, and fully embrace the present moment. 

The morning flow yoga session will invigorate and fortify your body, awaken your core, and nurture a profound sense of stability and equilibrium. In the evening, the restorative yoga practice will gently soothe your mind, stretch your body, and bestow a deep sense of tranquility and serenity. Guiding you through gentle stretches and supported postures, Holly will create a sanctuary of relaxation where your mind can unwind, and your body can restore. 

Her classes will reintroduce a harmonious equilibrium into your life.

HOLLY

Holly’s passion for yoga began when she noticed the amazing benefits it had on both her body and her mind. She travelled to Goa, India, to complete her 200 hour Ashtanga vinyasa YTT qualification and it was here that she started to have a deeper realisation about meaning of yoga. She began to understand that the true nature of the self is joy and that through the practice of the yogic teachings, we can start to peel away the layers and become the best that we can be in both body and mind.  She now teaches Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga, Restorative Yoga, Breath work and meditation alongside her own practice. She loves to get creative with her sequences and to use dynamic transitions to link postures together. You can find Holly on Instagram: @moonstone.holly.yoga and You Tube: Moonstone Yoga with Holly

FITNESS CLASSES

Get those muscles pumping and your heart beating with a dynamic mix of mini-trampolining, resistance band workouts and Pilates. We make fitness FUN at Sust health retreats! We focus on simple and effective forms of exercise that prime your muscles and your metabolism for the rest of the day and that you can continue at home to build muscle, physical resilience, and enjoy a well-rounded and balanced fitness regime.

COLD WATER IMMERSION

Cold water immersion in secret swim spots along the North Devon Coast will take your breath away (in the best possible way).
