“Alice is an amazing teacher whose classes are fun, energising and informative. She teaches with compassion and dedication, and her fascination with the anatomy shines through as she gives clear instruction and I particularly appreciate her sensitive and knowledgeable hands-on help. This retreat is indeed a rare treat. Warmly recommended!” Yoga retreat student 2017, Albert Ko
“Coombe Farm was perfect. Stunning location, beautiful home and lovely and peaceful. I imagine it would be difficult to find somewhere better!” Yoga retreat student 2017, Chris Elliot.
“Alice’s weekend retreat was a treat not to be missed. Lots of instructive yoga with pranayama, nidra and myofascial muscle release sessions in the lovely barn at Coombe Farm in Devon. Relaxing atmosphere with scrumptious food straight from the garden”. Yoga retreat student 2017, Bill S.
Our Coombe Farm retreat is designed to offer a space in which you can take time for yourself to nourish your body and mind in a beautiful, peaceful space. On this retreat you can enjoy:
- Twice daily asana practice. Each morning and evening there will be yoga classes with Yoga Medicine teacher, Alice Louise Blunden. In the morning, the yoga practice will be more dynamic, integrating pranayama and philosophy into an alignment based Vinyasa class. The evening classes will be a combination of Yin, Restorative and Myofacial Release for releasing tension and relaxation.

YOGA MEDICINE 200 HOUR TEACHER TRAINING
I am honored to be part of the Yoga Medicine teaching team for the 200 hour TT in Spain this year. In 2013 I completed my initial teacher training with Tiffany Cruikshank and it transformed my life.
The Yoga Medicine 200HR program spans the course of 4 to 5 months. It begins and ends with a weeklong intensive retreat at Suryalila Retreat Center in Cadiz, Spain. Both weeks include 7 nights accommodation and 3 delicious vegetarian meals prepared specially for us by the Suryalila’s on-site chefs.
In between, there is online coursework to help you review, integrate the information, and practice teaching.
This training will be lead by a team of Yoga Medicine teachers that have all completed extensive Yoga Medicine trainings and are personally mentored by Tiffany Cruikshank. Click here to read more about the Yoga Medicine teaching team.
