Enjoy an adventurous and refreshing springtime hiking yoga retreat in the awe-inspiring Lake District. Warm-up with yoga in the morning and enjoy an evening practice to soothe achy limbs.
Springtime is such a beautiful time to experience a hiking and yoga retreat in the Lake District. The mountains have had all winter to receive lots of rain, which regenerates the lush greens of mountainsides each year and the colourful wildflowers in bloom are a sight to see. Start the day in our beautiful yoga shala with views out to the local hills, a dynamic practice to warm and bring energy into the body and mind.
With our qualified and very experienced mountain guides on hand to lead the day hike on Friday, and your yoga teacher to lead a more gentle yet equally as stunning walk to Tarn Howes directly from our retreat centre, immerse yourself in nature and feel the benefits of this, being away from the frenetic and urban landscape of your day to day living. Take a packed lunch and just sit and watch the world go by, or enjoy a bit of forest bathing and meditation.
After a day’s excursions, unwind with evening yin and restorative yoga and yoga Nidra followed by a vegan and vegetarian feast.
3rd – 6th June 2021
PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING: With the latest developments in the pandemic and lateral flow tests being available to everyone, we have decided to ask that everyone take 2 lateral flow tests prior to coming on retreat in the UK, so that if it comes back positive you have time to get a PCR test to confirm a positive test result. We ask for a negative PCR test for foreign holidays. That way we can attempt to create covid free retreats.
We take Coronavirus seriously. We have created two groups for yoga to be 9 guests in each class to allow for social distancing and we have safety measures in place for your wellbeing. The venue is spacious and you will be outdoors most of the time. All rooms are en-suite. Please see our COVID hub where you can find out exactly what our safety measures, financial protection, flexible booking and planet promises are.
A twin/double room is for two people sharing either two single beds or a double bed.
Claires personal practice is Ashtanga, and she has studied both at the Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, and with Authorised Teachers of the lineage throughout Asia. After Mysore she went to work on a Yoga Retreat in Thailand, and another, a little closer to home in the Carpathian Mountains.
Our classes for our yoga retreat in the Lake District are really special, with natural light coming into the purpose-built, high ceiling yoga shala overlooking the mountains.
On this Lake District retreat, there are two teachers and you will be split into two groups for yoga. Each group will have 9 people to allow for social distancing so you can relax and enjoy the classes.
Each yoga class is designed in response to the energetic needs of the group, and this is reflected in the overall pace and rhythm of your yoga retreat. We ensure that the level and dynamics of the yoga classes are in harmony with the participants, the time of the day and the activities enjoyed that day.
