The workshop, led by Dearbhla Glynn, will consist of a strong, slow Vinyasa Yang practice focusing on developing strength, focus, and flexibility. Expect to build fire within and tap in your inner strength while revitalising body and mind. For the second part of the workshop we will move towards a Yin practice where we'll be targeting the connective tissue through long-held passive stretches. We will allow the body to relax into forward folds before closing the session with some calming restorative poses followed by a long savasana. The overall practice will strengthen the body, calm the mind, and encourage deep relaxation.
Overall this week is for those of us who want to reconnect with your bodies, calm your mind, finding the strength that is within us and exploring new ways of developing and inspiring our yoga and meditation practice.
This retreat is all about slowing down, resting, practicing yoga, meditating and ultimately stepping away from the business of daily life and responsibilities. Taking time to create space, reconnect with yourself, with nature and ultimately just be. Setting intentions can be an important step in creating a focus for the New Year ahead, through our meditation practice and silent walks we will call to mind any intentions you would like to set for the new year and focus on them.
Join us for a special retreat as we leave behind that which doesn't serve us and invite more of what we need into the New Year.

Sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. This is a truth that has become all too common in today’s tech-focused, stress-orientated society. And while sure, life does need to go on and you can’t run from it forever, what if you could just press “pause” on it for a while…just for a weekend?
For those who like both challenges and chilling out – welcome to the retreat you’ve been waiting for! We’ve crafted a weekend set to thrill your adventurous side, with stunning views as you hike along the Cliffs of Moher, and to soothe your contemplative side, with deeply nourishing vinyasa yoga and mindfulness meditations.
The walk is split between two days. On Day 1, you can stretch your legs from the charming town of Doolin up to the delights of the Cliffs of Moher visitor centre; on Day 2, set out from the visitor centre to the wild and windy Hag’s Head. That’s 14km over 2 days but don’t worry – you’ll have plenty of time to relax and reward yourself, too!
Drink in the views of the Atlantic Ocean in our glass-fronted studio as you enjoy a restorative yoga class. Unwind in our new wood-burning hot tubs (weather-permitting) as you soak up the surrounding scenery. Indulge in a massage before curling up beside a roaring turf fire. Nourish your body over and over with our delicious and organic produce. One, two, three, ahhhhh…
This is your chance to embrace the outdoors and to blow away the cobwebs while stretching your body, calming your mind and soothing your soul. Leave the retreat having made new friends, explored a breathtaking corner of Ireland and reconnected to yourself on all levels.
