Writing and Yoga Retreat, Cornwall


Two Short Breaks 

Writing and yoga retreat in beautiful South Cornwall. We will be staying in an old slate cottage in a village just a mile from the sea and five miles from the lovely fishing town of Looe.

Groups are small, with between 3 and 6 students on each course, meaning a strong trust and mutuality develops within the group over the four days and everyone gets lots of 1:1 attention, as well as a peaceful house in which to write.

Mornings begin early with vigorous dynamic flow yoga practice, involving held poses and sequenced asana,  pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation and deep relaxation. As well as ensuring a limber, happy body, this yoga practice both stills and focuses the mind, ready for writing

After breakfast we have a seminar-style workshop involving some quite eclectic reading, discussion, writing exercises and group feedback. A part of the session is given over to workshopping people’s existing writing projects. See Stories from the Sea page for details.

In the afternoon you’re free to explore the area, go for cliff-top walks, find a nice cafe to write in, or lie on the beach, weather permitting.

After a delicious home-cooked dinner at 7, participants will be invited to share what they’ve been reading or writing during the day.

Bring yoga mat (or let us know if you don’t have one) and writing materials.

We will email itinerary, menu, reading list and copies of stories to participants well in advance of start date.

Polly Tuckett is a published writer, an experienced tutor and she directs Short Fuse, literary Leicester’s short fiction showcase.

She is a qualified, experienced and fully insured Yoga instructor.
