Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this retreat for?

For anyone who wants to re-wild and relax. We welcome everyone of any ability - just come with an open heart and mind. To get the most out of our yoga retreats, we recommend taking part in at least 3/4 yoga classes before joining.

Where exactly is the retreat?

East of Lake, Coniston, LA21 8AA. The best way to reach the house is either by car or train. The nearest train station is Windermere. From London Euston the train takes 3.5 hours. (Top tip: if three or more of you are coming on the same train, you can get the ‘group saver’ discount which is a 1⁄3 off each!) The house is 25 minutes away from the station, jump in a taxi to us. If you are travelling by train email us and we will try to put you in touch with other guests to share taxis / lifts.

Do I need to bring equipment?

For the watersports: Paddleboards, paddles and buoyancy aids are provided. Please bring your own wetsuit and water shoes. For the yoga: Yoga mats and blocks are provided. Please bring comfortable exercise clothes for the vinyasa classes and warm pyjamas, socks and a blanket or big scarf for the yin yoga nidra!

Do I need paddleboarding experience?

Not at all! Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just finding your sea/yogi legs you are very welcome. We just ask that you can swim 50 metres.
