Paddling:

Three days of paddling in the stunning Lake District. Over the three days we will paddle around four to five hours a day in various weather conditions. Whilst day one will be planned by your coach, the following two days will be led by you. Your coach will guide you in planning a safe paddling trip and on the final day your group will confidently plan and lead the days paddling.

Yoga with Happiest When Outdoors:

Yoga for paddlers, taught by an experienced paddler, for you, a paddler. Over the three days, there’ll be the opportunity to learn how to support your body. Prepare and warm the body for a paddle. How to move and stretch after a paddle. Less about philosophy, more about movement. No fancy yoga clothes needed. Mats can be loaned out if you don’t have one.

 

Kathy is also rather well known for her SUP Yoga classes. A combo of nature immersion, mindfulness, purposeful movement and a large dollop of play. If the conditions and timings are suitable, then a SUP yoga session on Ullswater can be included in the trip. One warning though… It’s rather addictive and can leave you with a huge beaming smile on your face, and laughter that echoes around the valleys.

Accommodation:

We will be staying in a bunkhouse in the heart of the Lake District. You will be sharing a private room with other members of the group on the trip. There are communal areas where we can chill out in the evenings as well as an outdoor terrace looking over Lake Windemere in the distance. We also have access to a drying room where we can hang up our paddling gear each evening.

 

Meals:

All our trips are self-catered. Our chosen bunkhouse has a pub on-site offering bacon/sausage rolls in the morning for breakfast as well as a variety of delicious evening meals including freshly made pizzas. The bunkhouse also has a kitchen with the usual appliances if you would like to cook for yourself at any point. You will also need lunch and day snacks for yourselves, which can be brought each morning en route. 

 

Paddling Equipment:

You don't need your own equipment to join us on this trip as paddleboards, paddles, and safety equipment are available to borrow and are included in the price of the trip.

 

If you are bringing your own paddleboard, it should ideally be appropriate for paddling long distances and in chop. Please feel free to get in contact with us if you are unsure if your board is suitable for the trip. You must also have a coiled leash and buoyancy aid/PFD.

 

A full kit list will be emailed to you after booking on.

How to get to the Lake District:

  • Drive - this is the best way as we will need to drive around to different venues for the weekend and our vehicles have limited spaces in them with all the kit. We do encourage sharing lifts with other members of the group, which can be arranged in the WhatsApp group for the trip.

  • Train - you can get a train to Oxenholme Train Station and we can collect you from there but we can't do this for everyone as we have limited seats in our vehicles.

  • Daily yoga and movement for paddlers

  • 3 nights bunkhouse accommodation - (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)

  • Photos and videos from the trip.
