The Yan, Grizedale Forest
(This session is open to all adults)

A day of exploring ancient techniques of percussion and friction fire-lighting in beautiful woodlands. The day also includes yoga, mindfulness and forest bathing, making the day a nourishing as well as a learning experience.

We shall cover:

- Identify, gather and preparation of tinder

- Percussion fire-lighting: we'll try lighting fire with traditional and modern flint and steel.

- Friction firelighting: Try creating an ember using a bowdrill

- Campfire baking

- Yoga, mindfulness and forest bathing

Booking essential, see website. Both sites have toilets and indoor space to retreat to in very bad weather. No experience necessary.


The day is led by Yoga and yogic mindfulness teacher and yoga therapist Nes Bear who is also a qualified and experienced forest school leader, woodland manager and craftswoman who shares her skills in a way that is fun, welcoming, calming and gentle.

It's an absolutely fantastic day for all adults, no matter your experience. You can join in with as much or as little of the activities as you feel like on the day.. it's Y O U R day.

There will be lots of snacks and teas available thorughout the day, as well as the vegan cake that we'll bake on the fire. Please bring waterproofs, wear boots and bring some vegan food to share for lunch. It can be something simple like bread or hummus or your favourite dish!
