Grasmere Yoga and Hiking Weekend

Our Grasmere Yoga and Hiking weekend in June 2016 with a great group and with a lovely days hiking on Saturday.  Sunday was a bit damp, but we still managed some great walking.

These were just two of the many lovely reviews we received following the weekend:

“Just back from the hiking and yoga weekend in Grasmere, I’d like to thank once again Kevin and Yen for the impeccable organization and fun times. As a Lake District first-timer, I wouldn’t have covered half of the great places we saw on this tour had I gone on my own. Yen’s delicious brownie at the end of the hike was my personal highlight!”

“Just back from a fantastic weekend with Kevin and Yen! Brilliant hiking around the Lakes and lovely (needed) yoga! The whole place was beautiful, but it was Kevin and Yen’s welcoming nature that really made the trip so much more. What a genuine pair!!! Perfect weekend!! “T

Grasmere Yoga and Hiking – Saturday

The weekend started quite early on Saturday with yoga classes before breakfast.  We had a beginners class and an intermediate class so we could ensure everyone got the right level.

We set out on our days hike after breakfast to walk through the lovely village of Grasmere, and then up and around the lake.

The caves above Rydal Water are always great fun to explore.

And then we stopped off for lunch in the lovely grounds of Rydal Hall.

Our return journey back to the hostel took us past White Moss and the fantastic viewpoint over Rydal Water.

After returning we had lashings of tea and Yen’s homemade cake, then a short rest before our next yoga classes.

Dinner was prepared by Yen and Kevin and we had a choice of healthy salmon in a delicious sweet chilli sauce or a more hearty option of one of Huddlestones award winning pies from Windermere.

Grasmere yoga and hiking weekend – Sunday

Another two yoga sessions early Sunday morning preceded a delicious healthy breakfast and we then headed out for our days hiking, through the beautiful scenery of the Lake District.

Our hike today took us up alongside Easedale Beck and Sourmilk Gill, to the very beautiful Easedale Tarn.

The views today were more moody and atmospheric, but spectacular none the less.

After returning to the hostel we still had time for more tea and Yen’s delicious homemade cake, before heading off home.
