We will aim to start our Alpaca Yoga sessions in 2022.
So what is Alpaca Yoga?
Firstly, we won’t be teaching alpacas to do sun salutations and the downward dog!
Our Alpaca Yoga sessions take place in one of our grassed paddocks next to a beautiful lake. Leann Belsom, a qualified yoga instructor and personal trainer, will provide a one hour yoga session which will take place amongst the grazing alpacas, followed by refreshments and relaxation. Enjoy your drink whilst watching the alpacas and immerse yourself in the tranquility that comes with being in the countryside! After your yoga session, you will be free to take a peaceful walk around the lake or simply sit and chat with others. We recommend completely ‘unplugging’ from electronics to get the most from your experience!
Leann brings with her a wealth of fitness experience. She is not only a personal trainer, but she also specialises in spin training and is a post-natal fitness trainer. Leann qualified to teach yoga in 2019, and we are really excited about working alongside her in this venture.
Our yoga sessions are £20 per person, which includes refreshments. Booking is essential and we ask for payment to be made at the time of booking. In the event of inclement weather, we will offer a refund or reschedule the yoga for another date.
Animals can offer great benefits to humans! Positive interactions between animals and humans have been proven to:
- Help lower heart rate and blood pressure
- Help reduce anxiety and stress levels
- Promote social, mental and physical well-being
- Increase morale and mood
In our modern day lives we are constantly being bombarded with information and social media, we are stuck in stressful daily commutes and many people work in offices all day behind a screen. It’s really not surprising that up to 80% of all GP appointments are related to stress!
Take some time for you. Stop, breathe and take it all in.
