Sylva Sisters: Restorative Yoga & Campfire Cooking

10.30am - 4.30pm at National Trust Footprint in Windermere, Cumbria

A day of luxurious restorative yoga in the Footprint building and campfire cooking and baking. We’ll bake bread and cake on the fire and explore different methods of cooking on an open fire, reconnecting with and nourishing our primal selves! The day also includes yoga asana (movement), mindfulness and forest bathing, making the day a nurturing as well as a learning experience. We have the whole woodland and Footprint building all to ourselves to explore and retreat in.

The workshop will include:

- Restorative Yoga. This involves finding various relaxed positions using soft and comfortable props like blankets and bolsters to find true rest. Restorative Yoga takes place in the beautiful Footprint building with its roaring woodburning fire, sounds of the river and the huge windows looking out on to the woodland. A perfect place to let go and hibernate.

- Guided relaxation / Yoga Nidra

- Campfire baking

- Yoga, mindfulness and forest bathing

It's an absolutely fantastic day for all women, no matter your experience. You can join in with as much or as little of the activities as you feel like on the day.. it's Y O U R day. 

Booking essential, see website. There are toilets and a beautiful indoor space with wood burning fire and woodland views to retreat to in very bad weather.

The day is led by Yoga and yogic mindfulness teacher and yoga therapist Nes Bear who is also a qualified and experienced forest school leader, woodland manager and craftswoman who shares her skills in a way that is fun, welcoming, calming and gentle. 

There will be lots of snacks and teas available throughout the day, as well as the vegan cake that we'll bake on the fire. Please bring waterproofs, wear boots and bring some vegan food to share for lunch. It can be something simple like bread or hummus or your favourite dish!
