Description

This Coniston yoga and hiking August Bank holiday weekend break in the Lake District is based at the stunning Lanehead.  We will be staying for 3 nights with 3 days of yoga and hiking included.

Lanehead is an exceptional period property situated on the eastern shores of Coniston Water with stunning views over the lake to the Coniston hills. It is a fantastic and unique base for our August bank holiday weekend of Coniston Yoga and Hiking. The gardens around the house are excellent and we have the entire property for our exclusive use.  The views from the house over the lake to the Coniston mountains are breathtaking.

Hiking and Yoga in the Lake District

Accommodation will be in twin and triple share ensuite rooms and the house at full capacity can accommodate 29.  However, for this break, our group size will only be 16 so much smaller and so there will be plenty of space.

Hiking and Yoga at Lanehead

All rooms are ensuite with great views of the surrounding grounds and hills.

Coniston Yoga and Hiking – Hiking

We will be offering 3 guided hikes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Coniston offers us a huge variety of stunning hikes over the fells or around the lakes.

Because of its location, Coniston is the perfect for an August bank holiday break for hiking and yoga. Lanehead offers great options for hiking from the door.

Coniston Yoga and Hiking – Yoga

At Lanehead we have two dedicated rooms which we will use for our yoga classes.

For this event we are able to offer yoga classes according to ability and we will ask for your choice of class upon booking.

We have found that we do have a wide range of ability during our weekends from beginners to teachers.

So for this weekend, at each yoga session slot there will be an improver/gentler class for those who are new or returning to yoga, (also suitable for those who may have an injury or a specific concern) and also an intermediate class for those who practice regularly or those with a longstanding practice.

You will be able to attend 6 yoga classes during the break.
We offer a yoga class on Friday evening before dinner and then 5 more classes during the Bank Holiday.  A morning class Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and a class upon returning from our hikes on Saturday and Sunday.

There will be two yoga teachers who will teach the classes.

Meals

A light supper on Friday evening upon arrival, dinner on Saturday and Sunday are included, 3 breakfasts and packed lunch each day are also offered.  Tea/coffee is also freely available at any time during the weekend.  Homemade cake is also included when we return from our hikes.  All food provided is vegetarian.

All meals will be in the main dining room in the house.

Possible planned routes with estimated distances and times are below, however, these may be adjusted depending on the weather conditions at the time.

Moderate Walks

Saturday (11km, 450m of ascent)

On our first day we will take a hike up along some beautiful woodland trails to the picturesque spot of Tarn Hows.  We can explore around the lake where there are some lovely viewpoints of the surrounding hills and the Tarn itself.  Our return will take alongside a river and down through more woodland with some stunning waterfalls.  We then head into the village of Coniston, where we take a break and explore, before we head back to Lanehead.

Sunday (11km, 350m of ascent)

We will hike around the western shore of the lake where we will get stunning views across the water and of the surrounding Coniston hills.  There is then a short uphill section to reach Kelly Hall Tarn which is a fabulous spot for photos and to explore.  We then head back over to Coniston Water for a short Ferry ride (not included in the price) across to Brantwood the famous home of Ruskin.  Then its a short walk back to Lanehead.

Monday

Our final hike of the weekend will take us exploring the beautiful forest of Grizedale.  It has some gorgeous forest trails and views over Coniston Water and towards Windermere.

Note: These walks are moderate walks by Lake District Standards of about 11km (7.5 miles) each day. However, as it is the Lake District, there may still be steep and rocky sections and possibly wet and boggy sections. Therefore a good level of fitness is required and boots are strongly advised.  All of our weekends are aimed at people who have a good level of hiking and general fitness.

Yoga

For this weekend we are able to offer yoga classes according to ability/experience and we will ask for you choice of class upon booking.

We have found that we do have a wide range of ability during our weekends from beginners to teachers.

You will be able to attend 6 classes during this break.  So for this weekend, at each yoga session slot there will be an improver/gentler class for those who are new or returning to yoga, (also suitable for those who may have an injury or a specific concern) and also an intermediate class for those who practice regularly or those with a longstanding practice.

We will have two dedicated yoga rooms on the ground floor and the annex, and the group will be split across the two rooms.

 

And if the the weather is good we have a lovely space in the Garden.

Sessions will take place on Friday evening to get you in the mood for the weekend, then Saturday, Sunday and Monday before breakfast and after we return from our walks on Frida and Saturday.  The general focus of the morning sessions will be to energise and warm up the body for our walk, and in the evening , will be to stretch out those tired muscles and relax the body.   There will be an emphasis on the breath and movement, and our priority is for the yoga to be enjoyable and safe for all.

There will be two yoga teachers who will teach the classes.

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.

Everyone who has been on one of these weekends all agree that yoga and hiking compliment each other perfectly and make for the ideal weekend getaway.

Any queries regarding the yoga sessions, please contact us.
