On Retreat: Yoga and Hygge Luxury Escape.


The Yoga Kula team have just returned from a lovely winter holiday in the Ribble valley. We enjoyed a hygge lifestyle with lots of yoga, meditation and time for rest.

Students arrived on Thursday night and were welcomed with freshly baked biscuits, warming drinks and goody bags which included sweaty betty vouchers! Once settled in Angela chatted through what was planned during the weekend and the hygge manifesto, with each day being inspired by a different concept from the manifest, such as—comfort, presence, togetherness and gratitude.

Three nights away was perfect as it really gave us time to settle in and deeply relax. Angela started the day off with a dynamic yet gentle practice to wake up the body and mind. Lara took the group even deeper into themselves in the afternoons with Hypno Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Hatha and Somatic Yoga.

The evenings were the perfect time to enjoy and savour our Scandinavian style menu prepared by our retreat chef Julie Nutchey of Rocket Catering. After dinner we enjoyed evening yoga sessions and one evening we held a sacred cacao ceremony to open our hearts and enjoy warming and healthy cacao.


On our last evening we enjoyed spiced warm wine and stories around the fire pit.

On our last evening we enjoyed spiced warm wine and stories around the fire pit. For those who had not yet experienced the outdoor hot tub and sauna it was the perfect time to relax whilst soothing body and mind, warmed by the fire, chatting and relaxing with friends.

On our final morning we woke up to a soothing flowing yoga session followed by a green smoothie boost. We packed up and headed out to take a look around the charming scandanavian style local shops and ended our hygge retreat with a delicious brunch in Studd Gardens Café which is full of plants and vintage collectables.

Many of the group arrived as strangers and left as firm friends. This is what is so amazing about retreats – once we begin to relax fully we begin to connect and this after all if what yoga is all about.
