In this wild, unique and transformative space we celebrate nature and you can relax, renew and build your inner and outer strength. The setting is 8 acres of mature woodland, dating back to the 1790’s, gently and magically situated with commanding and stunning views across the countryside between Huddersfield and Wakefield, Yorkshire.
Our inspiring and original programme is designed for you to enjoy moments of self through a variety of restorative and strengthening yoga practises, sound, movement and meditation classes whilst developing a wellness conscious community to support and energise each other and the environment.

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour

About Cockley Woodland Wellness
Cockley Woodland Wellness was borne out of recognition of the importance of safety and wellness utilising natural outdoor spaces – there is nothing more empowering than trees and nature.
Our trees are mainly Sycamore and Silver Birch, historically symbolizing strength, protection, and new beginnings, renewal and purification – this is indeed a magical place to breathe and restore.
Our aim is to provide a unique sense of reconnection through nature, a restorative time to rebalance, strengthen and empower mind and body. We offer a range of practises to help you to connect and discover how to enjoy and explore movement and a greater sense of wellbeing.
Our outdoor spaces for classes and talks include our private woodland, a stunning natural form Tepee and outdoor pit fires, forever using natural beauty as our decoration. Within an outdoor space you can feel relaxed and invigorated by the natural world, whatever the weather, we have the space – it is Yorkshire after all!
Move & Explore
Leaving thoughts of the gym behind we are keen to encourage and inspire natural movement ‘green space exercise’ – this is because any kind of activity taken outdoors is known to help foster a more peaceful, harmonious way of being – all of this can help to reduce feelings of tiredness and anxiety – feelings that have been challenged over the last 2 years.
Assist & Inspire
Wellness is an individual and a shared adventure and one of the most enriching aspects of this journey can be making new friends. Supporting each other, discovering and celebrating achievements together.
We are keen to build a supportive community here at Cockley Woodland and encourage our members to stay for a while after their class. This can be to continue breathing in the fresh woodland air, or to share a drink and chat with like minded people.
Classes, talks, coffee days, mental health awareness days, arranged through local collaborations to enhance the Cockley Woodland Wellness experience. We want this to be a shared space.

Meet Callum – Our Yoga Instructor
Yoga has been a part of my life for over 6 years, and my practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat.
Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindfully. I decided to take a leap and booked a plane ticket to the other side of the world to deepen my yoga knowledge in Bali, and here I am today with no regrets. For me, yoga is about the balance between: strength, flexibility, exertion and releasing.
My classes combine both strength and mobility work in a dynamic, Vinyasa Flow/Hatha style. Expect to move, laugh and breathe. I love to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice. I seek to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga. My hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
Meet Lucy – Yoga teacher and leader of our Moon Ceremonies
I fell in love with Yoga 7 years ago during my 2nd pregnancy; the peace and calm I found in slowing down and breathing consciously was life changing. I instantly knew I had found my Dharma and was meant to share these amazing tools of meditation & movement, so I set about on the first of many teacher training courses.
I love being out in nature, I follow the moon cycles, the sacred seasons & have adopted a variety of other spiritual practices, rituals & ceremonies that help me find a touch of peace within the chaos of daily life.
My events are influenced by energy work and include movement, sound & breath techniques to heal & transform your mind, body & soul.
