Nothing says Winter like log fires, yoga with socks on and crisp winter walks, around a hidden lodge in the beautiful Yorkshire Countryside…

   

So that’s exactly we’re giving you! League Collective is multifunctional, ‘in for the long run’, a lifestyle that lives from the land and roams from the city to the sea and everywhere in between… And with all that, we need rest. Rest from the busy streets, the grind, the mind.

Come and join us for a long weekend of yoga, country walks, runs and fresh air with League Collective founder and yoga teacher, Lilly. On the 22-24th November, come back to the roots and relax in a tranquil space where it all began, and eat the most nutritious food you could ever imagine.
