A bit more about the weekend, location and accommodation

This is the perfect venue and location to explore a variety of styles of yoga including Mindful Yin Yoga, Yoga Restorative Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra Meditation with a Restorative/Gentle Yin Healing Sound Bath Emersion. We will also explore the local countryside on foot although bikes can also be hired.

A bit about the walk to Luds church


Legend has it that Lud’s Church, a natural stone cleft sliced into the hillside above Gradbach, was the inspiration for Sir Gawain and the Green Knight – a medieval tale of chivalry, bravery and honour.

Thought to have been formed by an ancient landslide, which saw a section of rock literally slip away from the hill, the deep chasm is 100 metres long and 15 metres deep.
