And these were just two of the reviews from our Yewfield October 2017 yoga hiking break:

 Thank you so much Kevin and Yen for my best yoga hiking break yet. I shall definitely see you again next year . Take care, Gabriella 

“Great Organisation, great hiking and yoga and a great group.  Will be back. “ – SC

 

On Saturday after yoga and breakfast, we will be hiking about 9 to 10 miles to explore the local area.  There are several stunning hikes we can choose from, but you should expect to be out for a full day and return to Glaramara around 4pm.

 

The hike will include sections of rough and possibly wet ground, but will be mainly on good footpaths.  There may also be significant uphill sections, so we can enjoy some good views and it is also possible to hike to some mid level summits. On Sunday we will do a shorter hike of around 7-8 miles.

We have some fantastic scenery and country to explore around Glaramara and some of the best hiking anywhere in England.

 These walks are moderate walks of up to 10 miles each day.  However, it is the Lake District and so there will be some steep and rocky sections and possibly wet and boggy sections.  Therefore a good level of fitness is required and boots are strongly advised.

There will be a total of five classes during the weekend starting with the first class on Friday evening.  We offer two yoga classes on Saturday with a walk in between through the stunning scenery of the Lake District. There will also be a yoga class on Sunday morning before breakfast and then when we return from our hike, before departing.

The yoga studio is in the main building just to the side of the main house with floor to ceiling windows and views of the surrounding hills.

The yoga is varied and so will be suitable for beginners as well as for those who have practised before. Sessions will take place before breakfast and after we return from our walk. The general focus of the morning sessions will be to energise and warm up the body for our walk, and in the afternoon, will be to stretch out those tired muscles and relax the body and calm the mind. Yoga and hiking are a good combination, and everyone leaves feeling rejuvenated and re-energised.
