Description

Our Lake District Yoga Hikes break at Brathay Hall will offer the best of both worlds.  We will get out walking to enjoy the beautiful scenery in the Lake District and to practice yoga.

We will be based at Brathay Hall near Ambleside for this Yoga Hikes Brathay Hall Weekend.  The hall is part of the Brathay Trust which is situated in the heart of the Lake District at the head of Lake Windermere.  The impressive Brathay Hall is set in 360 acres of mature woodland and rolling pasture.  There is also a comfortable lounge and bar for us to relax in with stunning views of the grounds and lake.

The wonderful views have inspired artists and poets alike for centuries. Wordsworth, Coleridge and Constable have all been notable visitors to the Hall and its impressive gardens.  Also located just a 15 minute walk from Ambleside, with a great selection of shops, restaurants and traditional pubs, whilst from our accommodation we have access to the fells and mountains that surround us.

We offer a yoga class on Friday evening, and then two yoga classes each day and we will explore the stunning Lake District scenery on a moderate  hike in between.

Sessions will take place on Friday evening and before breakfast and after we return from our walks on Saturday and Sunday.  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.

Our accommodation is in a fantastic location with many and varied walks directly on our doorstep.

Each morning, we will hike from the door each morning and provide you with a packed lunch.

The hikes 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 we sometimes hike to a minor summit.

On Saturday you can expect to be out for a full day, returning to Brathay at 4pm.  On Sunday, we will do a shorter hike and return approx 2pm.

We have some fantastic scenery and country to explore including Rydal Water and Grasmere.

 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.

Please note all hikes will be led by qualified Mountain Leaders

 

 

 

Sessions will take place on Friday evening to get you in the mood for the weekend, then Saturday and Sunday before breakfast and after we return from our walks on Saturday and Sunday.  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.

We have our own dedicated yoga space for the whole weekend where we can leave our mats.

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.
