Google review from our July 2019 trip to Glaramara:
“Fabulous weekend in a great location with a lovely bunch of ladies. Everything was well organized and thought out by Yen and Kevin who were fabulous hosts. This was my first time doing anything like this and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would definitely do another one and would highly recommend it to others as well.”

On Saturday after yoga and breakfast, we will head to explore the beautiful surrounding scenery in the Borrowdale Valley.  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 four 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 possibly a stretch session on the terrace upon our return to Glaramara (weather and time depending)

For this weekend, the yoga classes will take place in the Borrowdale Institute, a 4 min drive away.  On other occasions, yoga has taken place in the function room at Glaramara, but the Hall at the Institute is much more spacious and offers a better yoga experience.  We will able to offer lifts to those who do not have cars and can co-ordinate car shares.

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.

Please bring your own yoga mat and pillow case as a minimum.  Other yoga equipment is provided (brick, block, strap, bolster, blanket and scented eye pillow), but you may prefer to bring your own if you have any.

Any queries regarding the yoga sessions, please contact us.
