Yoga

Yoga works the whole body to improve strength and posture. There are many physical and health benefits – from relieving tightness and greater flexibility to calming the mind. 

Our yoga teacher, Tony, has an inclusive teaching style, guiding beginners & non-beginners through a flow of poses and sequences that will improve flexibility, stamina & strength, enhancing posture & encouraging a sense of well-being.

Tony makes everyone welcome and meets you where you’re at – whether you’ve never tried a yoga class before or already a fan. Always enjoyable, you’ll leave the class feeling refreshed and wondering where the time has gone. Tony will lead 4 yoga classes over the weekend.

Suitability

There’s no judgement and everyone is welcome.  Alternatives are offered throughout classes, making them suitable for most people whatever your level of fitness and experience.

If you have any questions about suitability please contact us to have a chat. Come alone or bring a friend!

If you’d like to join and bring a partner or friend who doesn’t wish to take part in the classes, that’s totally OK. Contact us using the form below.

Location

The Lake District has been awarded Unesco World Heritage status, in recognition of its beauty and breath-taking landscape, and is home to England’s largest natural lake – Windermere – and it’s highest mountain – Scafell Pike.

Ambleside is a charming town with pubs, fantastic restaurants (including some superb vegetarian ones) and cinemas. Being situated on the shores of Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, it’s an idyllic spot with stunning views.

Our Venue

We’ll stay at Brathay Hall, situated in 360 acres of woodland right on the shores of Lake Windermere, and boasts great facilities, including its own private jetty.
