ABOUT THE EVENT
There’s nothing quite like a starry sky to make us feel more alive and at one with the universe. Viewing the night sky from the top of a wild moor, you can’t help but feel a sense of awe. Walking at night - regardless of whether you see the stars or not - is an incredibly powerful way of reconnecting us to nature.
The North York Moors is one of the best places to view dark skies due to low light pollution levels. It's also magical walking by moonlight. In February we'll be among many events as part of the Dark Skies Festival on the North York Moors National Park.
The Yorkshire Cycle Hub, Fryup Gill Farm Great Fryup Leaholm, Whitby YO21 2AP.

We will sometimes meet at other locations around the Moors. More details are given on booking.
Please make sure you haven’t eaten for at least 2 hours before doing yoga. Hot drinks will be provided at 4.30pm after the session. There’ll be time to change into your walking gear, before heading out for our walk around 5.00pm.
The walk will be between 2 – 3 miles and mainly on tracks but there is some rough ground. For your comfort, a good basic level of fitness will be needed for this activity. You are welcome to bring your own binoculars or telescope. Fabian and Alison can talk to you about the stars and planets we may see.
This event is primarily hosted by Adventures for the Soul and will involve a mindfulness and yoga workshop in this experience to help you get into the ‘zone’. Combined with being outside on a cool, dark evening, you’ll feel invigorated yet calmer since this activity will engage the senses. Obviously we cannot guarantee the weather - and we'll still head out regardless as whatever the weather is doing, walking at night will help us reconnect with nature - but we're sure you’ll leave feeling revitalised, reconnected and very much in the present moment.
Cost: The trip costs £59 per person.
