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.

April is an INCREDIBLE month to visit Exmoor and we have prepared two remarkable guided hikes for the weekend that are guaranteed to put the SPRING back in your step and revitalise your physical well-being.

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.

FITNESS AND YOGA CLASSES

Get ready to BOUNCE into a healthier lifestyle with our invigorating mini-trampoline sessions! The low-impact nature of rebounding reduces stress on joints while providing a high-intensity cardiovascular workout.

Resistance training with mini-bands are an enjoyable and effective way to overload your muscles and prime your metabolism.

Pilates emphasizes core strength, stability, and flexibility, providing a well-rounded and holistic approach to fitness.

Flow Yoga will invigorate the body through music, movement, and breath.

Restorative yoga will gently stretch the body, soothe your mind, and bestow a deep sense of tranquility and serenity.

Our commitment to simplicity ensures that our classes are accessible to all fitness levels, making it easy for everyone to participate and see positive changes in their bodies.
