Yoga and walking weekend, Hartington Hall, Derbyshire, 26-28 March 2021

Postponed from April 2020: combine gentle yoga and walks in the stunning scenery of the Peak District for a weekend to revive body, mind and soul

Hartington in the Derbyshire valley of the River Dove is a beautiful village surrounded by the breathtaking countryside. Indulge in a refreshing Spring break with fresh air, hearty food and relaxing yoga with Chris.

We will stay at the historic Hartington Hall, parts of which date from 1611 and which is now a four-star youth hostel. With oak-panelled rooms, open fires, a great restaurant and bar – and single or shared rooms available – it’s very relaxing base for a weekend break.

There will be four yoga sessions on Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday evening , and Sunday morning – and plenty of time in between for walks in nearby dales: Beresford, Wolfcote, and Dovedale. Chris will guide two four-hour walks – one through the dale and another across the hilltops.

The yoga will refresh and restore: postures, breath awareness and meditation all taught with a gentle approach, suitable for beginners, or those attracted to a mindful and nuturing practice.

Included in the price is two nights’ accommodation, all yoga, two two-course dinners and two full breakfasts. Any other meals can be made in the self-catering kitchen, bought at the youth hostel (including a packed lunch to take walking), or in one of the pretty Hartington village pubs.
