Rest and Restore: New Year Yoga and Hiking Retreat

Thurs 2nd Jan - Mon 6th 2020

After the excesses of the Christmas season, re-balance, rest and restore in the beautiful surroundings of Broughton Hall, a 3000 acre estate in the Yorkshire Dales. Join Gillian and her wonderful daughter and assistant, Ty, on a revitalising four-night yoga and hiking retreat. Enjoy yoga classes twice a day in the sanctuary of Avalon - a state-of-the-art Well Being Centre - dedicated to transformational body work and holistic healing . Book your choice of a range of treatments in advance and make the most of what is surely one of the UK’s most stunning purpose-built sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and in-door swimming pool suites.

Roam the natural landscape, feel rejuvenated by forest-bathing and, if you dare, take a dip in the wild swimming pond amongst heather-covered moorlands. Relax and unwind in the luxury accommodation of cottages nestling in the spectacular surroundings of ancestral lands home to the Tempest Baronet family for over 900 years.

 

Enjoy chef-inspired vegetarian cooking and de-tox for the New Year on an alcohol-free retreat. Be inspired by all the ways in which nature can lend itself to your healing process and learn from Ty about how to incorporate dōTERRA essential oils into your daily self-care routine. Join Gillian for a silent walk each morning, and take time to drop into a slower, restorative pace of life. There is plenty of space in the day’s schedule, for yourself, or with others, to enjoy the peace and quiet of shared or more private relaxation areas. Take time to explore the surrounding area on foot, or by car and discover the unique beauty of the Yorkshire Dales.

Accommodation for the retreat is the beautifully converted, luxuriously-appointed, but casually-styled Yorkshire cottages of the estate. For those who want to walk from the cottages to Avalon, the Well Being Centre where yoga, and sauna/swimming and treatments take place, or from the cottages to Eden Cottage where communal eating happens, the chance is there to benefit from invigorating walks between venues, making the most of fantastically fresh air and opportunities for more natural movement. Otherwise, a complimentary shuttle service will take the sting out of winter weather and weary legs in the mornings and early evenings.

 

There are a range of rooms and accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets in three shared cottages as follows:

  • 4 x Super King Ensuite - double or twin occupancy £699 per person

  • 4 x King Shared Bathroom - double or twin occupancy - £599 person or single occupancy £799

Price includes two yoga classes a day, use of the Avalon sauna, steam-room jacuzzi and swimming pool for three hours-a-day (Fri - Sun) and three meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Price does not include travel, or treatments.

The walking distance from the cottages to the yoga studio and Avalon well being centre are as follows.

Note that in the morning and evening the complimentary shuttle bus is available if you feel like catching a ride, rather than getting your walking boots on.
