The Hideaway

During your stay at Deer Shed, your wellbeing is our wellbeing. That’s why we’ve filled The Hideaway – new for 2018 – with everything needed to maintain full holistic happiness!

Go Yoga – Primal Yoga

Go Yoga – Primal Yoga

The sea is the primal source of all living things on earth. That means, to discover your true spirit animal, you have to delve a little deeper than the usual monkeys and lions. What moves better than an octopus anyway? We know you don’t have eight appendages, but Go Yoga can still show you how to embrace the moves of the groovy creatures living beyond our shores.

Go Yoga – Greatest Showman Yoga

Go Yoga – Greatest Showman Yoga

We announced a singalong screening of The Greatest Showman, and Deer Shedders celebrated like we’d booked Elvis! So why stop there? Always forging fresh avenues in the brave new world of meditation and relaxation, Go Yoga will combine the moves from a film which instantly entered our collection of family friendly classics with their popular yoga routines.

Gin / Yang Yoga

Gin / Yang Yoga

Yin and Yang are two halves that together complete wholeness. Complete wholeness sounds nice, but is it truly attainable without a splash of gin?! Achieve perfectly balanced Yin/Yang in our gin-inspired GO Yoga routine (we’ve been assured “falling up the stairs” and “waking the kids up way past bedtime” aren’t included) before achieving complete and utter wholeness with a free Sloe Motion gin cooldown session.

Go yoga – Family Yoga Rave

Go Yoga – Family Yoga Rave

If you think the above family yoga sounds nice but a little too tame, join the Go Yoga family rave. It’s just as inclusive, but do prepare yourselves to throw some of the biggest shapes you can possibly imagine. The yogic world has never experienced such a party!

Go Yoga – Silent Yoga

Go Yoga – Silent Yoga

Silent yoga is much the same idea as a silent disco, except there’s less dancing and more mindful relaxation, stretching and exercise. We’ll provide you with a set of headphones to listen to the awe-inspiring music of the Go Yoga DJs whilst being talked through some amazing moves by the Go Yoga instructors.

Bubble Wrap Yoga

Bubble Wrap Yoga

We’ve declared war on single-use plastics this year. Bottles and straws are totally banished for 2018, and by 2021 we’ll have canned the lot. Plastics do not belong in the ocean and, though some bubbles do actually belong there, bubble wrap is a big no. Fortunately we’ve found an imaginative way to make use of that old bubble wrap lying around your house. Yep, you’ve guessed it: bubble wrap yoga!

Hot Tubs

Hot Tubs

Soak up the stunning North Yorkshire scenery during your very own festival spa session. Atop the rolling hills of Baldersby Park sit our brand new wood fired, eco-friendly hot tubs, waiting for you, your family and friends (or just you – we won’t judge) to sit back, sip something sparkly and submerge yourselves in total tranquillity. Our friends, The Log Company, will look after you for the duration of your stay. Book a place in your own little oasis here.

Meditation and visualisation

Meditation and visualisation

Some might think meditation and visualisation isn’t for them. All we can say to that is: if it’s good enough for Yoda, a legendary Jedi master, it’s good enough for you! Who knows, maybe you’ll be able to harness the force to achieve true wholeness for mind, body and soul. Anyway, off to meditate on this, I am.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is called the “yoga of awareness” as it combines Bhakti Yoga (the practice of devotion and chanting), Raja Yoga (the practice of mediation) and Shakti Yoga (for the expression of power and energy). Me Time Events will guide you through awakening your inner kundalini energy! Combining breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures, they’ll help you to bring balance to your body, mind, and soul.

Eurorack Yoga with Go Yoga and Ben Wilson

Eurorack Yoga with Go yoga and Ben Wilson

DivKid is the grubby and overly critical cartoon offspring of producers Ben Wilson and Andrew Illingworth. We couldn’t afford an appearance from Divward, but Ben the modular synthesis wizard has kindly agreed to fill his shoes. Together we’ll present a world premier fusion of Eurorack and yoga... Euroga? Moditation? Whatever you call it, recharge with Ben’s relaxing soundscapes in the background.

Jon Hands - Guilty Pleasures Walkabout Rave

Jon Hands - Guilty Pleasures Walkabout Rave

Sometimes your schedule is just too busy to find time for a proper dance. That can be true at Deer Shed too with the mass of performances, workshops and activities scheduled. That’s why John Hands’ Guilty Pleasures Walkabout Rave will come to you! It’s basically a huge conga through Baldersby Park, but with much better dance moves and the tunes you love fed through headphones.

Sunrise Yoga

Sunrise Yoga

What’s the first thing you naturally do when you wake up in the morning? Stretch, of course! That’s your body telling you something: yoga is the perfect way to warm your body up for the day of festival fun ahead. Combine our routines with a Baldersby Park sunrise and your mind, body and soul will feel oh-so-good all day long!

Night Time Family Yoga

Night Time Family Yoga

You’ve started the day right with our sunrise yoga – it’d be rude not to include a routine as you prepare your body for sleep. We will practice gentle, restorative yoga to expel any tensions in your body from the day of dancing, using deep breathing techniques to calm your mind and meditation to aid peaceful rest.

Everything Flows Therapies – Reiki

Everything Flows Therapies – Reiki

We’re not here to tell you Reiki healing is the answer to all your woes, but it can certainly help you to feel deeply relaxed, cope with difficult situations, relieve emotional stress and tension and help to improve overall wellbeing. Join our fully trained Reiki practitioners, Everything Flows Therapies, to learn about and experience the rejuvenating power of hands on healing.

Heilsa Therapies

Heilsa Therapies

Heilsa Therapies will be transporting their clinic of wholesome therapies to Baldersby Park, offering all sorts of massages (including aromatherapy, Indian head massages and Japanese facial massages), reflexology sessions, Hopi ear candling and many other bespoke treatments tailored to your needs. Book your slot with Heilsa Therapies here.

Gong Baths

Gong Baths

BONG!! Relaxing, right? Ok, maybe it needs to be experienced in person for its full effect. Hosted by Me Time Events, gong baths are one of the latest crazes in the wide world of yoga. The intention is to allow yourself to slip into a state of deep relaxation, let go of any tension or worry and let the sound vibrations wash over your body.

Parent and Toddler Yoga
