Unique Off Grid Eco Glamping Yoga Retreats in the Lake District National Park

Yoga Platform_edited.jpg


These Off Grid Eco Retreats are aimed towards individuals, couples or close friends that want time away to come back home to self and once again be 'moved by life'. We will be practicing in a stunning location to create more space both inside and out.

Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park and world heritage site on the grounds of Rydal Hall is your romantic Shepherd’s Hut. Fully kitted out with everything you could need, including a toasty wood-burning stove, solar lighting and USB charging point and comfy bed. With just a 10 minute stroll down to Rydal lake and the fairfield horseshoe mountain range from your hut door, you really won’t want to leave.

Keeping it real.

I have absolutely all sorts of people coming to my yoga classes. From young students to very active 70+ year olds. I teach men and women that have never done any yoga before but are suffering with back pain that is affecting their lives and yogis that have a good understanding of the structural principles. It really is for everyone, no matter what your size, shape, ability or experience. My job as a teacher is to differentiate so all needs are met and support you in  accessing  your own body wisdom and resources.

These are intimate retreats that offer both workshop time and free time to explore the beautiful surroundings. All are welcome, from absolute beginners to the more advanced practitioner. Yoga is a personal exploration to create union between self and natural state rather than a comparison or destination. Our practice will be focused on alignment, embodiment and presence.

A retreat is a time to move inwards and withdraw from that which does not serve us. A time to gather ourselves, let go and create space for our bodies to thrive and our minds to be still in presence.

The result, a sense of natural joy and wellbeing.

How it works

At Lake District Yoga Retreats we understand that everyone's needs are very different for a yoga retreat. For this reason we have created a 3 tiered system for booking and pricing. This gives you the option to have a private retreat just for you or with your partner. Alternatively, you could arrange a yoga retreat where you have the exclusive site of shepherd huts and a private retreat for your group of friends. 
The choice is yours.

It's that simple

The best place to create union between self and natural state is in Nature. Spending time in nature reminds us that we do not know it all and that we never will. It allows us to accept all the happenings of life without judgment.

'The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.'  - Pablo Picasso

I'm Sarah, the founder of 'The Herdwick Huts' and 'Lake District Yoga Retreats'. I have a passion for creating spaces that nurture, both inside and out, believing that the relationship we have to our internal environment is a direct reflection of how we live in nature.

I have been teaching Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga for 8 years now  and practicing for over 25 years.  My approach is focused on embodied practice, waking up connections between each part of the body so we can live a fuller life.  I have trained in Zen yoga at Anam Cara in Scotland and Vinyasa/Hatha yoga in India. I love to teach and I love to learn so I class myself as an eternal student.

I am so pleased to be able to create these 'Glamping' Yoga Retreats based in the stunning Lake District National Park. With the shepherd's huts at Rydal Hall and our yoga space in a magnificant pine woodland with mountainous views, I really do believe we get the best of both the landscape and internal space for our practice.

I look forward to potentially meeting you

in the future.
