Give yourself something to look forward to after the New Year blues with a rejuvenating yoga weekend in the heart of the Lake District. This yoga weekend is set on a beautiful farm in Grasmere and thoughtfully designed to give you a good dose of energizing yoga practice. You will have enough ‘me’ time so you will leave the weekend feeling inspired and rested.
The venue, Grasmere Hotel, has been lovingly restored to provide all the mod-cons including a sauna and a yoga studio. A modern sauna is available for guests to use free of charge. For your stay, all rooms will be based on four sharing with all guest rooms including an en-suite and additional communal showers to ensure no queues.
The weekend will be based around both Ashtanga and Jivamukti yoga practices. Whether you’ve practiced for years or very little, the sessions will accommodate all levels with modifications and adjustments offered to suit your needs in a personal and supportive manner.
Using their experiences, Teresa and Kevin will be offering guidance on how you can introduce a home yoga practice that complements your lifestyle and commitments, alongside tailoring a practice to suit your body’s needs.
The program of this retreat encompasses all yoga and pranayama classes, including a themed yoga practice on Saturday and Sunday morning. Teresa and Kevin will be on-hand throughout the weekend so students can chat about any specific yoga / meditation queries they have.
An optional two-hour guided walk will be held on Saturday afternoon around the breathtaking Grasmere fells.
