Join me for a late summer self-care weekend of yoga, walking and amazing food in Yorkshire
Set in the beautiful rolling hills that caress the border of West and North Yorkshire, this UK retreat combining yoga and walking will be held at the very special The Healthy Home between 31 August and 3 September 2017.
“A great weekend, the combination of yoga and walking and being out in nature was perfect” – guest on Yoga and Walking in Yorkshire retreat 2015
This gorgeous traditional farmhouse sits in stunning countryside, with just sheep and hills for neighbours, but is still easily accessible by train (under 3 hours from London).
For those of you that like to eat well we have a feast for the tummy too. Local vegan cafe The Willow Tree are coming to work their magic with a vegan and gluten free menu that will knock your socks off.
“Arrived feeling drained and exhausted and leaving feeling nurtured and revitalised. A lovely weekend, with lovely people and full of gulps of fresh Yorkshire air! Thank you x”
A healthy home from home
The Healthy Home is built around an old Crofter’s cottage that is over 350 years old. This, and the farm buildings, have been carefully renovated to minimise the impact of modern living, using non-chemical materials and cleaning products, filtering natural spring water and ionising air in the rooms so that The Healthy Home promotes wellness by being low in toxins and allergens. It has designed specifically to make you feel calm, relaxed and deeply rested. Read more about The Healthy Home
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Lucyoga retreat. We were so well looked after. It was a brilliant mix of yoga, outdoor time, food and relaxation.” – AB
“The retreat was a perfect way to pause, rest and stretch myself. Lucy and Stu are warm and accommodating hosts who encourage you to do exactly as much or as little as you need to. A wholly brilliant experience!” – guest on Yoga and Walking in Yorkshire retreat 2015
During our weekend at The Healthy Home we’ll be indulging in plenty of Dru Yoga, with a spot of evening meditation too. Sit back and enjoy home cooked vegan and gluten free food. After take some time to chill out in one of the many indoor social spaces or the extensive private gardens.
We will also take you out on a nice long walk with a picnic and some outdoor yoga, in the stunning Yorkshire countryside. A great way to blow the cobwebs and stress away.
Often people worry about going hungry on a yoga retreat. Fear not! In fact at every retreat I’ve run the guests have commented on how well fed they’ve been. And this will be no exception as we have the amazing Willow Tree Cafe coming to whip up a vegan and gluten free storm in the kitchen. They’ll even be providing us with a deluxe picnic for our walk, a curry night and cake for Saturday night indulgence.
Soak up Yorkshire
“The retreat was relaxing, invigorating and I will leave feeling vitalised with wonderful treasured memories of a fantastic weekend in North Yorkshire.” – Emily
There’ll be some free time to rest, read or go further afield. The house is close to the beautiful market town of Skipton if you want to go and get some real Yorkshire fish and chips, or maybe try a pint of the local real ale! Or perhaps you’d like to take another hike out in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which is just down the road?
“Great short break allowing you to focus on what’s important to you and to develop your yoga practice. Lots of space for exploring wonderful countryside and delicious food to nurture the soul. Highly recommended!” – Nic
