Our latest Yoga Hikes Weekend at Brathay Hall was another fantastic weekend of Yoga with great walks in a fantastic location.
We had three yoga rooms in the hall, with great views of the lake and grounds, so we could offer a choice of yoga levels for each class.
The views of the grounds from the yoga rooms is fantastic and we look out over the largest lake in England and stunning grounds.
We also offered a choice of walks each day on our Yoga Hikes weekend at Brathay. With optional Yoga along the way of course.
We have found that we have a wide range of walkers for some of our Yoga Hikes weekend breaks and so at Brathay everyone could choose between a gentler low level hike and a tougher high level hike.
And at the end of each days hiking we have a great lounge to relax in for our tea and cake.
We then had our second yoga class of the day to stretch off any tired muscles at the end of the days hiking. Each day was then topped off with a delicious dinner provided by the hall in the main dining room, followed by relaxing in the bar in case any extra refreshment was needed.
Our hiking on Saturday took us up Wansfell with stunning views over Windermere and to the pretty village of Troutbeck, before returning via the lovely viewpoint of Jenkins Crag.
The more moderate hiking group followed the lake shores of Rydal and Grasmere before returning via Loughrigg Tarn and Todd Crag with more stunning views of Windermere.
On Sunday we again had two hiking groups. The moderate hike was exploring the beautiful valley of Great Langdale all the way back to Brathay. Our more strenuous group hiked over Loughrigg Fell for stunning all round views of Grasmere, Langdale and Windermere.
Finally on the Bank Holiday Monday we again started the day with our last yoga class. We then all hiked together to Waterhead, where we caught a short ferry ride across the lake to Wray castle and then hiked back.
We finished the weekend off in style with a lovely final lunch served by the hall, before everyone headed off.
These were just two of the lovely quotes and messages we received after the weekend:
“Hi Yen and Kevin. Thank you for a lovely weekend- I enjoyed everyone’s company and, of course, the yoga and walks! ……… Thank you again!! ??”
