"Had the most fabulous week of walking and yoga combined with fabulous food and delightful company in the Lake District. Relaxed but professionally organised. I couldn’t fault it. Can’t wait to go again."

"This has gone to number one in my retreat experiences - best yoga teaching I’ve ever experienced (as a relative beginner I never thought I’d ever be able to do a 2 hour class). The group bonded well and it was lovely to make new friends. The venue was in a stunning location in the Lake District with pretty gardens."

"Another fabulous Adventure Yogi --- adventure! Fantastic, peaceful location, delicious food, the perfect balance of walks and yoga(s), incredible weather and really lovely company. The teaching was inspiring and the organisation was faultless. My second trip - planning to make it a hat trick the first chance I get!"

"Brilliant weekend of yoga, mindfulness, hiking and healthy foods! Not only a wonderful location and excellent yoga practice with a fantastic instructor but nourishing healthy meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had wonderful activities arranged for a local hike and explored some great paths in the Lake District. I was nervous about going alone, but there were plenty of like-minded yogis on the weekend so we had a brilliant time. The organisation was great and even managed to fit in a massage with our multi-talented teacher. I've already been looking up the next adventure with AdventureYogi for next year!"

"It was in a lovely setting and the accommodation was comfortable, warm, and beautiful. The yoga instructor was patient during class and attentive outside of class to help us feel welcome and comfortable. The hikes were fab and right out of the front door, and you made a great choice of hiking instructor!"
