Yoga retreat

Review: Adventure Yogi – Yoga Retreat in East Sussex, UK

The Adventure Yogi retreat comprises a collection of beautifully converted Georgian barns with lots of wood panelling. Yoga was profoundly nourishing and left me in hight spirits and the food was energising and delicious and a fine illustration of how easy it would be, should the inclination be there, to become vegan.
