Join us for a weekend retreat in this incredibly peaceful setting, just a couple of minutes outside the charming village of Hutton-le-Hole. Allow yourself the time to go deeper into practice and tap into the stillness of this beautiful countryside setting.
Barmoor Lodge is an Edwardian house on the North Yorkshire Moors with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside from every side. Bedrooms are basic but bright and airy and communal areas are cosy with open fires and big sofas. The yoga space itself is in its own building just outside the lodge and has a wooden floor, a log burner and huge windows which bathe the space in natural light. A simple garden surrounds the house with a few tall pines and picnic tables at which to sit and admire the views.
There are no single bedrooms, but you can choose from sharing in a double room, triple room or multiple room (between four and six sharing). All bathrooms are shared too. If there is someone else who has booked onto the retreat who you’d like to share with, feel free to let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate (you must both book the same type of room).
We are thrilled to have Emily Evans, one of the cooks from Purple Valley, catering for us for the weekend, so we know we are in good hands! Expect locally sourced, seasonal, organic food which is nutritious and delicious in equal measure. Meals will include plenty of options, so you can choose to eat light if you wish but if you’ve got a good appetite, don’t worry, there’ll be plenty to fill you up. Food will be predominantly vegan, although we’ll have cow’s milk available for cups of tea etc.
This retreat is only suitable for experienced Ashtanga students who have an established Ashtanga yoga Mysore-style practice and know the Ashtanga sequence.

Although a duvet and pillow are provided at the centre, you will need to bring your own bedsheet, single duvet cover and pillowcase. Please bring your own yoga mat if possible or let us know if this is going to be awkward for you and we’ll bring one for you.
During the retreat we ask you not to use any digital technology such as phones/tablets/laptops etc.; either leave your devices at home or hand them over to us for safe keeping at the start of the retreat.

To get to Barmoor Lodge, whilst driving through Hutton-le-Hole village (heading North), take the left hand fork, continue for a couple of minutes and then take the turning on the left hand side. On your left there is a small path to a residential property, ignore this and drive down the right hand path for a minute and you’ll arrive at the gate of the lodge. There’s plenty of space to park.
The closest train station is Malton, the closest major train station is York, (if you’re coming from further afield, I think most trains will require you to change at York to go to Malton).
