Barmoor Lodge is an Edwardian house on the North Yorkshire Moors with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside from every side. The communal areas are cosy with open fires and big sofas, perfect for curling up ion an autumn evening with a book or to chat to friends. The yoga space itself is in its own building just outside the lodge and has a wooden floor, a log burner and huge windows overlooking the moors. Bedrooms are simple but light and airy. Choose from twin, triple or 4/5 bed rooms.
Each morning will start with a Mysore style self practice class for the more experienced and a led Ashtanga class for those who are less familiar with the practice. In the afternoon there is the opportunity to head out on a guided walk to explore the beautiful
North Yorkshire Moors - we will definitely try to find a wild swim spot for those who like a spot of cold water - or you can choose to relax by the fire, explore the pretty nearby village of Hutton-le-Hole or discover your own walks and explore the area. In the late afternoon there will be another yoga class focusing on refining your practice through exploration of alignment and technique as well as working with the breath and moving towards mediatation and deep relaxation.
This year all the catering will be done by the amazing vegan chef, Caro, from Mighty Roar. Her raw cakes are out of this world. Check out her instagram page https://www.instagram.com/caro_mightyroar/ We're also lucky enough to have her husband, Si, along too, he makes the most delicious sourdough breads and buns https://www.instagram.com/mighty_bakes/ and there will be the opportunity to make your own bread on the weekend.
There will be a large vegan brunch at 10.45am and dinner at 7pm. In the day there will be fruit, seedbars, bliss balls and cake available at all times as well as a pot of soup and fresh bread for those who need something extra to keep them going until dinner. If you bring along a picnic box you can take food with you for your afternoon hike. Dairy milk and butter will be provided for non vegans.
The retreat is open to students of all levels of experience. Do contact me if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
