Writing and yoga retreat in Devon, April 7-12
The third "Writing with Yoga" retreat at the Arvon Foundation's centre in Devon will take place from 7-12 April 2014.
It's a lovely opportunity for writers with some sort of project on the simmer to spend a week in a focused, supportive community, with lots of time to write and daily yoga classes designed to get the creative juices flowing. Totleigh Barton, the gorgeous pre-Domesday manor house where the retreat takes place, is a rather magical place. Its metre-thick walls and cosy thatch have welcomed so many writers over the years that it's easy to imagine them imbued with a gentle, supportive hum of creative energy.
I'm very much looking forward to leading the week again this year. I had to pull out of last year's because of a family emergency, and it was my great good fortune that my friend and fellow teacher Anna Roseveare was able to take the reins. Here's hoping this spring is less dramatic than the last.
