T: 07857 182500
Entry / Cost: Free
This is a free event to be able to win yoga goodies including equipment and free yoga classes (online for the moment).
Accidental Yogis is running a scavenger hunt with a twist! No yoga experience required! 🙂
So grab the kids, your partner, or someone else at a socially acceptable distance and lets walk and yoga our way to peace and wellbeing!
What’s the plan?
Due to popularity this event now covers BOTH Saturday and Sunday. At midday on Saturday 20th June, this event page will have a post with clues as to where rocks are hidden throughout Grin Low Woods in Buxton.
Starting at Poole’s Cavern Car park and ending at Solomon’s Temple you will find 7 rocks on the well trodden path. Each holding a letter to a jumbled up, but well known word (in yoga anyway…) you need to enter the competition. Just ‘check- in’ on Facebook and send a private message to the Accidental Yogi Facebook page with this word to be in a chance at winning!
Not great at anagrams? Just ‘check-in’ to the Accidental Yogi Facebook page with a photo of you trying one of the yoga poses featured on a rock (don’t panic, there’s nothing too complicated on there!) to be in with a chance at winning too!
Not the lucky sort? Tag the page with a picture on Facebook or Instagram (or a photo collage if you want to get creative) on Facebook or Instagram of you trying all 7 yoga poses and you can have 2 free yoga classes. Boom!
*Rocks are designed to be easily read without the need for picking them up, so please do not touch (for COVID reasons and in case they wander and spoil the fun).
The starting point is Poole’s Cavern Carpark (SK17 9DH) and the end point is Solomon’s Temple. There are different routes to get back to where you started or just come back the way you came. It’s a well known route with lots of signposts.
What you will need
- Your mobile phone – to see the clues on the event, take pics, make notes of the letters on the rocks, and ‘check in’ on Facebook.
- Suitable clothing and footwear for whatever the weather- Buxton can be often be its own microclimate and a touch chilly sometimes. definitely breezy up by Solomon’s Temple.
- A sense of fun and exploration for the walk itself. A beautiful woodland ending with a panoramic view of the beautiful Peak District.
How long will it take?
If you walk at a fast pace without a yoga trail to play with, it will take about 20minutes. Doing the trail and perhaps with kids along – maybe give it 1 -2 hours.
