Summer Hiking and Yoga Retreat Peak District

Join us in July in the Peak District at our stunning retreat in the Derbyshire Dales.  Sunshine summer walks, plush bedrooms and nourishing yoga await you on our summer Peak District retreat.

19th July 2021

Our new summer Peak District retreat is the perfect short stay adventure. Great for nature-loving yogis that want a more modern, luxurious feel.

Join us this July for our three-night mid-week summer Peak District retreat at a stunning new venue in the Derbyshire Dales, Hope Valley area.  With views across the valleys of the Peak District, you will leave feeling like you have had a full escape away.

Our modern home for the Peak District retreat has all the cosy comforts you could ever need. Plush sofas, outdoor seating and firepit to stargaze, views from every window, of which there are a lot of. Perfect to curl up with a book, relax in the sun or chat with your new retreat friends.

Our days on this summer Peak District retreat will be filled but relaxing. Hikes directly from the house, delicious plant-based meals, and yoga to nourish both body and soul.

We will be running covid secure retreats, with reduced numbers and lots of space, as we did summer 2020 – so you will feel like you can relax and enjoy your experience with us.

PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING: We will keep you informed closer to the time as the pandemic continues to evolve and change. With the latest developments in the pandemic and lateral flow tests being available to everyone, we have decided to ask that everyone take 2 lateral flow tests prior to coming on retreat in the UK, so that if it comes back positive you have time to get a PCR test to confirm a positive test result. We ask for a negative PCR test for foreign holidays. That way we can attempt to create covid free retreats.

We take Coronavirus seriously on our Peak District Retreat. We have reduced numbers to 12 to allow for social distancing and we have safety measures in place for your wellbeing. Please see our COVID hub where you can find out exactly what our safety measures, financial protection, flexible booking and planet promises are.

At our Peak District Retreat, a twin/double room is for two people sharing either two single beds or a double bed.

Our Yoga Teachers

Over the 13 years that AY has been organising our bespoke retreats, we have always made sure that we work with exceptional yoga teachers who are dedicated to their practice and live and breathe yoga, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you will be inspired, relaxed and tensions dissolved by the end of your retreat with us.

About the yoga

On our summer Peak District retreat, the classes are suitable for all abilities. From beginners to intermediate and advanced levels. Everyone is welcome. Our inspiring and experienced teachers are well-practised at adapting the class to everyone’s level.

Depending on government guidelines, the classes will either be 2 hours each for the whole group, or there will be two staggered yoga classes for each yoga session scheduled to accommodate the group in order to follow the guidelines of social distancing.  The yoga teacher will create a more dynamic class in the morning to get you ready for the day’s hike and the evening class will be slightly longer to enable deep relaxation with yoga Nidra.
