Our first Yoga break of 2022 was great fun and we were exceptionally lucky with the weather. Yewfield is always welcoming, comfortable and extremely well organised. We also have a great space for yoga and some fantastic hikes to choose from.
Our first yoga break started with arrivals at around 5pm on Friday, followed by our first yoga class at 6:00. The yoga studio is always warm at Yewfield with a lovely wood burning stove and radiators so even on a cold evening its cosy and warm. The focus of our class on Friday is very much to relax after our journeys, wind down after the week, prepare for the weekend and to welcome everyone.
After yoga we had a lovely vegetarian dinner and an impromptu concert from a guitarist and piano player who happened to be staying at Yewfield. Then it was off to prepare our bags for the following morning and a good nights sleep.
On Saturday we started with yoga at 8:00, then into a lovely breakfast of cereals, fruits, yogurts and vegetarian cooked options. We also had plenty of delicious homemade bread for toast.
Our hike started at 10:15 then we gathered our packed lunch and headed out for our day in hills. Our hike on Saturday took us around Tarn Hows then down a lovely stream and waterfalls.
We headed over Holme Fell to the summit with views over Coniston Water and later Black Crag with great views of Windermere and the surrounding hills.
We finished our hike and headed in for a quick change followed by tea and cake. Cake today was homemade carrot cake made by Yen with a few other options for dietary requirements.
Carrot Cake after our hike on Saturday, was very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed by our group.
After a break to relax and then change we had our third yoga class of the weekend. Lots of gentle stretching yoga and lying down yoga after our hike.
Sunday First Yoga Break and Hike
Sunday morning we had a further class then after breakfast we headed out for a more gentle hike today. The weather was stunning again as we hiked up to Tarn Hows and then down through woods to explore the lakeshore of Coniston Water.
Our hike continued back up through fields and woods with great views back over Coniston. Before our final loop around Tarn Hows and back to Yewfield for our last Class.
After yoga we had more cake (chocolate brownies this time), more tea and then sad goodbyes. It was a terrific weekend with a fun and friendly group, great weather and views.
