With our qualified and very experienced mountain guide Mark 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 yoga Nidra followed by a vegan and vegetarian feast.
