Maison Fish are excited to Come Together at what we believe to be the finest piece of land on the planet. Yogini Ferny T and Sound Therapist Cherub Sanson will have their magician hats on for the weekend, working together to weave a spell for your body, mind and Spirit.
Maison Fish live with the ethos that the Nature around us IS the Nature within us and a retreat experience encourages us to reconnect to seasonal rhythms. Autumn always feels like the start of a new year for us. The dizziness of summer slows down and we have the opportunity to move towards a point of stillness and invite all parts of ourselves back to centre. We can ask an honest "how do I do?" and "where am I heading?". This retreat is an opportunity for you to regroup both with yourself and perhaps connect with other like minded souls. Maison Fish Devon is an intimate retreat with space for ten guests only and we love this. We form a family - we feast together, breathe together, heal together, giggle together.
Maison Fish are holding this experience at a treasure chest of a farmhouse within 300 acres of rolling private farmland in the Exmoor National Park. All energy in this spectacular property is either fueled by wind energy or woodchip with thanks to our favourite farmer Richard who has sustainable living at the heart of his world. We'll take our yoga in a converted barn, with the treat of underfoot heating coming through the wooden floorboards. A premium property with a slated swimming pool and steamy hot tub boasts an exquisite view of rolling hills and rather good looking cows. Your jaw will drop as soon as you walk through the door.

Fern E. Trelfa will be leading this retreat from a yoga and movement point of view. Staying rooted in traditional yoga philosophy is an important part of Fern’s practice, however her physical practice has moved away from traditional asana. Fern works with passion in connecting people to their own individual bodies, exploring the ways in which it organically wants to move, release and build itself. You can expect to work with creative vinyasa that are are inspired by natural movement practices. These will ask students to feel for support from the ground, celebrate their joints in order to find greater freedom in body, and perhaps within mind a Spirit too. We shall see...
Cherub Sanson will be sharing her incredible work with Voice and Sound. In her sound journeys, you can expect to experience a high frequency fusion of planet gongs, drums, flutes and chimes to guide you into a deep and blissful state of pure presence. The healing harmonics are known to stimulate your immune system and promote the release of seratonin & dopamine - happy chemicals, helping you to relax and feel amazing. Maison Fish love working with Cherub – she has an incredible gift for opening the gates of Spirit for those who operate in logic yet gives those who like to fly a place a land. We ask you to suspend any disbelief when working with our Cosmic Fish, and simply ride her spell to see where you end up.
On one of our days we will head to Croyde Bay, where you can either take a nice stroll along the beach or take an optional surf lession. Please note the Ocean is at its warmest at this time of year!
For Maison Fish, nothing quite replenishes the soul like the ocean.
Our live in chef will make sure we are all nourished deep down into our cells. Our menu is based around whole foods that taste amazingly good. This will be a heart feast of vegetarian retreat, and any vegans and dietary requests warmly welcomed. All of our ingredients are sourced freshly from local suppliers, and our eggs from the chickens in the field next door. Our chef will work in an open plan kitchen, and is happy to talk you through her recipes so you can go home with some new health food pointers and inspiration. We believe in not only serving a healthy menu, but also providing an education in how you can re-create it at home.
This retreat will be held at Maison Fish DEVON, a treasure chest of a farmhouse in the middle of Exmoor National Park. You can expect rolling hills, forests of whispering trees and meandering rivers for us to splash in. Our farmhouse is a premium property, with wooden floors and open fire places. We’ll take our yoga in a converted barn, soak in our Five Elements hot tub under the galaxy, and take a plunge in either the slate swimming pool or private lake. Maison Fish Devon is our home away from home, and we just love watching people's jaws drop when they walk through the door. Please click here for more details on this venue.
