These retreats are aimed at any individuals or couples / close friends that want time away to come back home to self and once again be 'moved by life'. We will be practising in a stunning location to create more space both inside and out. You do not need any previous Yoga experience and equally, it is fine if you do. Fun is top of the list and hopefully going home with some new resources that benefit both body and mind. When we build a relationship with our own bodies, we are more available to build a healthy relationship with life.


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. 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.


Our venue for the yoga workshops is very special indeed. Set in a private 9 acre Pine Forest in Grasmere with incredible views over to the ‘Lion and the Lamb’, we have a 24ft Yurt specifically designed to keep us warm in any British weather. Away from the maddening crowds, throughout our practice we will see only the wood

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 practising 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 magnificent 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.
