May 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm BST

Walking and Yoga Workshop -Mon 13th May 2019

£25.00

Boost your energy, quieten mental chatter and embrace the present moment with this Adventure walk followed by a Yin Yoga Session.

The practice of Yin Yoga is a modern practice, based on an ancient tradition and is becoming well known for its health benefits. In addition, walking can further complement the practice of yoga and together they can prove to be highly effective. Join us for this refreshing three-hour workshop comprising a walk in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, followed by refreshments and a Yin Yoga session.

Yin Yoga

Red Hat Yoga & Wellbeing Teacher, Caron Lindley, will guide us through a series of standing stretches to prep the body for our walk.

After the walk, you’ll be ready Yin! Yin Yoga is a meditative, floor-based practice. Postures are selected to release stiff joints, tight muscles and deep connective tissues. Yin is the perfect companion to walking as the practice will stretch out those tight areas in the legs, back and shoulders.  Postures are held for 1 – 5 minutes so you can relax into the stretches while you are guided mindfully to become still and peaceful.

Postures will be adapted for health conditions.

We will ask you to complete and submit this on-line health form before attending the event.

The Walk

This is a lovely medium walk which is set in the rolling hills in the west of Northamptonshire, including the villages of Crick and Yelvertoft.  The walk itself includes a variety of different terrains and wildlife.

This walk is suitable for people of all abilities as the walk is fairly flat.  We will encompass:-

  • Nice wide bridleways
  • We walk along the Grand Union Canal which is beautiful at this time of year.
  • Lush green meadows
  • We will wave to Cracks Hill.  Crack’s Hill was created during the last ice age, when melted water deposited material underneath the ice. Once the ice sheet retreated it left this pile of silt & rock behind, the hill is properly called a moraine. Worked flints from the Neolithic period have been found on the hill & it’s also believed that the Romans used the hill as a sentry point.  We are not walking up the hill, but we do walk by it.
  • We meander through Crick Millenium Wood
  • There are often cattle and sheep on this trail.
  • If you are feeling adventurous then you may be tempted to embrace the inner child and have a go on the rope swing!
  • We also pass the Crick Tunnel.  This tunnel is reputedly haunted by a shrieking female boggart named Kit Crewbucket, who it’s believed that if she takes a liking to you she will cook you breakfast, but if she doesn’t her shrieks can send you mad!!

We guarantee that you will feel rejuvenated after this walk and ready for your Yin Yoga session to stretch out those muscles.
