Detox and yoga converge in the countryside at Mercedes Ngoh's Yeotown.
When London's elite need to unwind and recharge outside the confines of the city, they head to north Devon, a quaint country, seaside area in the British countryside. It's there that Mercedes Ngoh, a woman who has quickly made a name for herself as one of the UK’s top yogis, holds her highly sought after detox and yoga retreats, Yeotown.
“Yeotown is not a bootcamp,” says Ngoh, “it’s not a fast or a fat farm, weight-loss-obsession thing. But you’ll probably lose weight as a by-product of exercising, eating healthy, sleeping better, yoga stretching and meditation.” She describes Yeotox as a modern approach to detox, a kickstart to whatever it is you are trying to achieve, whether it’s a detox from your urban lifestyle or shedding unwanted baby weight. If you're thinking of booking yourself a place at one of Ngoh’s in-demand Yeotown retreats (Equinox is holding one from June 27th-30th), here’s what you need to know before you pack your bags.
