Description

1-3 November 2019
Ambleside, The Lake District

A REJUVENATING & CREATIVE ESCAPE

For full information of what's included visit our website

Take time out just for you, to learn how to capture beautiful photographs and to reconnect with your body with daily yoga classes.

Yoga and photography are ideal partners: As yoga gently stretches your body and calms your mind you become more receptive to learning new creative skills.

Photography is the perfect way to make us take life more slowly and appreciate what surrounds us.

A weekend in the stunning landscapes of the Lake District will do you a world of good.

Good for: Anyone wanting to improve their photography and practise yoga. Beginners and non-beginners welcome for both activities.

Not ideal for: Very experienced photographers, unless you simply enjoy the company of other photographers and the opportunity to relax, grab some nice shots and do some yoga.
