The Iyengar method of yoga is named after the yoga teacher Yogacharya Sri B.K.S. Iyengar. The teaching helps you focus on correct alignment of the body in poses ensuring you’re working safely, with maximum benefit to your flexibility, strength and wellbeing. Classes generally start with simple poses and gradually move towards more advanced poses, ending with a period of relaxation.
Props, such as blocks and belts, are sometimes used in class to allow those with less strength or flexibility to work correctly and achieve their full potential.
You will experience accompanied walks on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons to explore local scenic coves near Flamborough, seabird watching at the nearby RSPB Bempton nature reserve, cliff top walks and explore local beaches at Filey.

Katy, the fabulous vegetarian cook has a deep personal commitment to organic growing and to cooking methods that respect the integrity of the ingredients used. It has underpinned her approach to feed both her family and her customers. Organic and sustainable growing continues to be the bedrock of her cooking with continuous exploration of the rich stock of exciting vegetarian cuisines from around the world.
A firm believer in the adage that "you are what you eat", she uses whole, unprocessed ingredients in all of her cooking. Everything she serves has been made by her from scratch promoting health through natural wholefoods which is mirrored in the theory and practice of a sattvic diet consisting of fresh organic fruit and vegetables, whole grains and nuts, organic dairy products, beans and lentils, plant-based oils, mild sweeteners (molasses, maple syrup and unrefined sugar), and spices (cinnamon, basil, coriander, ginger, and turmeric).
Most of the recipes she uses are vegan and others can be very satisfactorily adapted for vegans. Alongside her firm belief in the importance of unprocessed organic wholefoods as the building blocks of a healthy diet, her home kitchen is a calm, creative space in which she applies her skills with an attention to detail which includes grinding many of her own spices and carefully sequencing the order in which ingredients are added to dishes.
