2016 Grasmere yoga hiking Blog post and reviews

Read our Blog post from the June 2016 Grasmere yoga hiking weekend: https://www.mountainhikes.co.uk/grasmere-yoga-and-hiking-weekend/ And these were just two of the reviews from the June 2016 trip: Valeria “Just back from the hiking and yoga weekend in Grasmere, I’d like to thank once again Kevin and Yen for the impeccable organization and fun times. As a Lake District first-timer, I wouldn’t have covered half of the great places we saw on this tour had I gone on my own. Yen’s delicious brownie at the end of the hike was my personal highlight!” Tahmina “Just back from a fantastic weekend with Kevin and Yen! Brilliant hiking around the Lakes and lovely (needed) yoga! The whole place was beautiful, but it was Kevin and Yen’s welcoming nature that really made the trip so much more. What a genuine pair!!! Perfect weekend!! “T
