YHA Boggle Hole, Yorkshire – 15-17 June – ‘Grounding’
I have wanted for some time to find a suitable venue for women’s yoga weekends away and short midweek breaks. Sometimes we need to get out of our normal environment to reconnect with what it is we really need.
After a lot of searching, I came across Boggle Hole, the iconic youth hostel near Whitby in Yorkshire, which has just received a £1.2 million revamp. We are holding a women’s youth hostelling & yoga weekend this June to test it’s potential as a yoga venue for the cold winter months, when we hope to hold proper mid-week retreats.
We’ll be bunking in a dorm and getting up early (before everyone else we hope!) for meditation and yoga in the early mornings. There’ll be time free in the day, before a return to practice later in the afternoon. The venue is attractive as it offers catering (will cater for vegans, gluten free, dairy free etc) and self catering options, has wonderful shared spaces and an ambient vibe. It will be very busy in June, so definitely not a retreat, but our therapy during the busy day time will be the great outdoors: it’s right on the sea (literally a stone’s throw from the front door), a short walk to Robin Hood’s bay along fossil-filled beaches, and a 6-mile drive from Whitby.
We are aiming to develop affordable women’s yoga weekends and hope that Boggle Hole will provide what we need. If you’re interested in coming along, we have 3 spaces left in an 8-bed dorm for the taking!
