The accommodation at Valley View offers an optimal retreat experience. But it makes for a special holiday too. In between retreats, visitors can enjoy the amazing location and bring partners and family members too. The four-acre site on the edge of the North York Moors has protected woodland and a gurgling stream with a waterfall. The area abounds with wildlife and we make every effort to nurture it. And all rooms have direct access to the outdoors and views of the natural surroundings.

Couples sharing

If you are traveling with a partner who does want to practice yoga this yoga holiday in Whitby can accommodate this too. They have several spacious double woodland rooms, all with their own entrance. Nonyoga partners can enjoy the beautiful setting. There is walking, running, and cycling right from the door. Or for the more adventurous Mark can arrange climbing or navigation sessions


Whitby yoga holidays include daily yoga, time to relax, and a chance to enjoy the local area or other activities. Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, and The North York Moors are all within walking distance of the beautiful site.

On these less intensive yoga breaks, the day starts with energizing yoga and a generous vegetarian breakfast. During the week there are four evening restoratives sessions or yoga Nidra style relaxation too. The middle of the day is your own. But you can of course book additional sessions if there is something you would like to work on.

Beginners yoga

The yoga teachings on Whitby yoga holidays are accessible for beginners and people relatively new to yoga. But more experienced practitioners are welcome too. The maximum group size for a yoga session is six people, so every student will have individual attention. Beginners yoga in this August week-long Whitby yoga holiday, there are yoga sessions every morning and four evenings.

So there will be plenty of chance to see if yoga is for you or to gain a deeper understanding of the practice. But there will be time for more conventional holiday activities, personal practice, and reflection too. In your free time can always book extra private sessions including aerial yoga.
