Yoga & Hiking in the Peak District over August Bank Holiday

Here are our brilliant group demonstrating their yoga skills while hiking over white Edge near Grindleford in the Peaks.

Peak District Yoga & Hiking

Our latest Peak District Yoga Hikes break over the August Bank Holiday break in a fantastic location with stunning views. Our base was the stunning Cattle Shed near Grindleford in the heart of the Peaks.

It was a fantastic group who all fully participated in two yoga classes each day and a glorious hike through the Peak District countryside. We also included a varied and healthy breakfast and dinner. Then a wide variety of fillings and options for a packed lunch was put out each day to make sure everyone was fully fuelled up for the whole weekend.

We had two glorious days of hiking up to the viewpoints of Higger Tor and White Edge. Our hikes also led us through stunning woodland and pretty villages. With a bit of impromptu posing on the way!

Then Saturday night we had a cosy fireside chat whilst watching the stars in a glorious clear sky.

Then Monday morning we had our final yoga class. Our final hike was a shorter walk following the river Derwent, before heading off around 1pm.

The Cattle Shed really was the perfect location for a fantastic weekend of Yoga and Hiking over the Bank Holiday. We will definitely be back so check out our future schedule for our next dates.
