What we're about

Welcome to Yoga Hikes! Sociable & Friendly Yoga Hiking Breaks

Yoga and Hiking is the perfect combination for a healthy, revitalising, enjoyable and friendly weekend break. We base all our breaks in very special places, start and finish the day with a yoga class and head out for great hikes on the doorstep.

"Just brilliant! Yoga and walking make the perfect couple, I've decided. Add to that a great venue, fabulous and plentiful food, homemade cake and great company, and you've a recipe for a perfect weekend. The fact it was in such beautiful surroundings as Windermere just made it even better." - Fiona, Feb 2017

All our weekends are run by Yen, who is a fully qualified yoga teacher and personal trainer and Kevin who is a fully qualified International mountain leader. We are based in the Lake District, so many of our trips are based here, but we also run trips to the mountains of Andalusia in Spain as well.

We focus on smaller group breaks of around 15 to 20, because we believe this is the ideal group size to manage safely and give everyone the opportunity to meet each other and make friends. Its also the ideal size for yoga class. We have run larger groups, but we feel they can become impersonal and more difficult to manage safely.

Tea & Homemade Cake
A popular feature of all of our weekends has become Yen's homemade cakes. This is a delicious and rewarding way to finish all of our hikes.

Fitness
We welcome people of all nationalities and backgrounds, the only requirement is a love of the outdoors and a good level of fitness. Our yoga hikes weekends are aimed at people who are already reasonably fit and are happy to participate in two yoga classes and walk for about 6 hours each day.

Sierra Nevada Yoga Hiking Break in Southern Spain

A London Airport

£495.00 Price: From £495 to £635 depending on room choice Dates: Sun 13th April to Sat 13th April 2019 Yoga Classes: 12 mixed ability classes Hiking: 5 guided hikes (1 per day) Rooms: single, twin (or double) or female 4 person room share Food: choice of vegetarian or non-vegetarian options A six night Spain yoga hiking break in the mountains of Andalucía, in southern Spain. Based on a working organic farm in typically rustic accommodation in the Alpujarra region of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We will be including two yoga classes each day, a guided hike through the mountains and local villages, all meals and accommodation for this six night Sierra Nevada yoga hiking break. Framed to the north by the mighty peaks of the Sierra Nevada, mainland Spain’s highest mountains, the fertile valleys and dramatic gorges of the Alpujarras are a world apart from the Mediterranean coast thirty kilometres to the south. Seemingly untouched by the passage of time, this ancient province was the last stronghold of the Moors, whose intricate irrigation and terracing systems still shape the land to this day. Complemented by the distinct character of the region (which extends to the architecture and even the chimneys), the variety of the scenery is astonishing (so much so that you never know what lies around the next bend), ranging from steep-sided gorges to orange groves, and from bubbling streams to Mediterranean landscapes dotted with cacti. The farm grows all its own vegetables and fruit and so you can be sure that the meals will be fresh and all organically grown. For yoga we have a large purpose built yoga studio with stunning views of the mountains and valley below. Finally, the hiking in the Alpujarra region is wonderful and varied as we explore deep gorges, pretty quiet and typical white villages, woodland and mountains. For full details and booking please go to our website below: https://yogahikes.co.uk/tours/sierra-nevada-yoga-hiking-break/ In order to confirm your place you need to pay your deposit on our website.
