Women’s Yoga Weekends

“Sometimes we need to get out of our normal environment to reconnect with what it is we really need.”

We have wanted for some time to find a suitable venue for Women’s Yoga weekends and mid-weeks breaks. After a lot of searching, we came across Boggle Hole YHA, the iconic youth hostel near Whitby in Yorkshire, which has just received a £1.2 million revamp.

We held a women’s yoga weekend in June 2018 to test it’s potential as a yoga venue and it was brilliant!

The feedback was great and everyone booked straight on for June the following year. Five years on and we now run yoga weekends every month in May, June and July, and in the Autumn in October. The weekends run for either two or three nights. 

As everyone seems to want to repeat book (90% of participants book onto another break), you can repeat book for the next year and, after paying an initial deposit, stagger payments over 9-12 months. 

We are aiming to develop affordable and accessible women’s yoga weekends and we are confident that Boggle Hole can provide what we need. If you’re interested in coming along, our Spring, Summer and  Autumn 2024 weekends are now open for booking.

What you should know

You’ll be bunking in a dorm and getting up early at 5.30am for meditation and yoga each morning.

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 is usually busy, so definitely not a quiet retreat, but our therapy during the 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.
