Description

We are excited to be able to offer you a high season summer Lake District yoga retreat as it is a stunning time to be in this awe-inspiring landscape.

Start your day with an energising yoga class 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, followed by one of our favourite breakfasts on our retreats!

After the springtime flowers, feel the buzz of high summer in this stunning part of the UK. Explore with a whole day guided hike with qualified guides and the next day it is your choice to enjoy another walk to Tarn Howes (Beatrice Potters favourites lakes), enjoy another more challenging hike or do some sightseeing and visit nearby Lake Windermere or Ambleside

After a day’s excursions, unwind with evening yin and restorative yoga and yoga Nidra followed by a vegan and vegetarian feast.

Accommodation

There are 13 luxury ensuite bedrooms in the main house with a choice of standard and superior suites which are freshly decorated in a traditional/contemporary style. Each room has a bath or walk in shower and crisp linen. The public rooms of the house are there for you to relax in.

There’s always a quiet corner to stretch out in, and in the colder months a wood burning stove will keep you toasty warm. The house invites you to borrow their selection of books.

Cuisine

We believe that our retreats should be nurturing in every way. So our Vitality Chefs will create tasty, healthy, vegetarian meals for you from local, seasonal produce.

All of our food is gently detoxing and we cater to various dietary preferences. Our guests are always impressed by our creative, flavoursome dishes — that’s because the food is just as important to us as the yoga.

Yoga

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.
