Yoga retreats in North Yorkshire

Yogandspice at Valley View

We are not far from Whitby, on the North Yorkshire Coast, nestled in protected woodland, between the moors and the sea, Valley View is a wildlife haven, an ecological microcosm and a tranquil and beautiful place to stay. 

Whether you simply want some time away because the pressures of ‘normal’ life are taking their toll, or you seek a more focussed style retreat with yoga, guided relaxation, plant based food workshops or even a detox, we welcome you to spend time with us.

Mark and I moved to this special place to fulfil our dream and offer small group and individual yoga retreats or alternative holidays. Our guests can enjoy the healing power of nature and of home grown seasonal produce. We have a number of complementary qualifications between us to enhance your experience or help you rebalance or move forward if wanted.

Our yoga retreats in North Yorkshire

As we are first and foremost a yoga retreat centre we are able to offer stays of varying lengths.  So although we offer mainly weekend retreats to fit round the usual working week, you can always extend your stay.

If the idea of a retreat centre is a little daunting to you, check out some dictionary definitions:

Retreat (n): ‘move back; withdraw from position; quiet time; quiet place; safe place; period of seclusion, flag lowering ceremony!’

‘ Holding the fort’ can be exhausting sometimes. We’ve been there ourselves, and taken some knocks. Now we are finding a way forward through living in a simpler and more connected way.

We would love it if you chose to spend some time at Valley View. If you do choose to step back a little you could be amazed by what you see.

With love and light
