Guided Walking Holidays - Pilates in the Dales

If you are interested in a walking holiday but would like an extra activity, this holiday could be for you! Pilates is a series of exercises which focus on core strength, joint mobility and good postural alignment. Our classes are available to complete beginners or more experienced Pilates practitioners. Classes take place in a private room in the hotel in the late afternoon after your day’s walking followed by a relaxation class after dinner.

The variety of walks on this holiday will take in the mixed landscape of the Dales, including heather moorland at Bolton Abbey and Simon’s Seat and the dramatic limestone pavement at Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. We may also include a beautiful walk in Wharfedale crossing the river Wharfe and passing through a number of typical Dales villages including Linton and Hebden.
