Yoga and walking holidays

Yoga and walking holidays in the UK combine two health giving practices from very different traditions. We introduce both yoga and the beauty of the North York Moors. These breaks are great for yoga beginners and suit both individuals and couples. 

At Valley View we can walk in four different directions without getting in a car. Both the North York Moors and the Whitby coast are less than an hour away. Routes include woodland, meadows, paths and tracks.

Coastal walks

Our yoga and walking breaks are designed for the moderately fit recreational walker.  In a week-end we would include one short walk and two of around ten miles with shorter options available. The terrain is varied and includes ancient paths, pastures, the disused railway line, cliff top trails and beach walks, taking in Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay.  Sometimes, on one of the coastal walks, tide permitting, we get a close to the local seal colony.

If our descriptions haven’t tempted you enough have a look at Andrews Walks blog which has lovely photographs of the area and inspiration for other walks too.

Yoga for beginners

Yogandspice yoga and walking holidays welcome beginners or intermediate yogis and the daily practices introduce a variety of yoga styles including Hatha (simple posture yoga),  gentle, and restorative yoga, as well as an introduction to seasonal flow.  If the weather permits we also take some practices to the great outdoors.

We will start each day with an energising yoga practice. Then on return from each invigorating walk there will be a restorative or yin yoga and Yoga Nidra/ relaxation session.  And you can enjoy all the relaxation facilities of Valley View or book a massage or  Ayurvedic wellness consultation.

Depending on the length of the walk and daily schedule. we provide three vegetarian/vegan meals a day or two and a packed lunch.  

Prices for yoga and walking breaks (two/three nights with two full days) start at £400 per person for a shared twin room.  Or £600 for a couple.

We do not have any scheduled yoga and walking events at the moment but can arrange a private or small group week-end or break. Or simply contact us to express interest an we will communicate with other interested parties find a mutually convenient date and itinerary.
