Yoga Retreats

A few days of rest, recovery and bliss.

I firmly believe that Yoga is much more than touching your toes, and wellness goes far beyond just the physical. My yoga retreats offer time and space away from the busyness of life to refresh, renew and reflect.

We look beyond just the physical. These retreats allow time for you to completely unwind and unplug, and allow the mind and body to rest and rejuvenate.

General outline;

You arrive on Friday to a nourishing candlelit restorative yoga session with meditation and relaxation, which sets you up for a good night’s slumber.

We set intentions and goals for ourselves which enables you to get a focus on where you are in life and helps you to detach from the outside world.

Saturday includes lots of yoga – a mix between Core yoga, Hatha yoga and Flow yoga. (Suitable for all levels)

We look at releasing tensions and tightness from the body physically as well as mentally and emotionally.

A safe tranquil space is created for you to completely unwind and relax.

Often on my Yoga retreats I include nutritional advice, workshops and demo’s as well as integrated wellness coaching.

There is plenty of free time to unplug, rest, relax and refresh. Retreats are always located in stunning venues around the country (for example Delphi Lodge and Spa, Connemara or The Farmhouse on Old Kinsale Head). The retreats allow ample time in the fresh air, to walk or hike the nature trails, sit on the beach near the ocean, curl up with a book next to the open fire or simply just sleep!

Investing in your own health and wellbeing is really the ultimate gift you can give yourself. In this fast paced world it’s so important we stop, slow down and reflect, so that we can reboot and reset.

Join me on one of my Nourishing Yoga retreats for Mind, Body and Soul.

Next upcoming retreat is on Old Kinsale Head on the idyllic Wild Atlantic Way – For information and booking visit: http://wildatlanticwayyoga.com/events/mind-body-soul/

Why Yoga? The Benefits...
  1. Yoga improves your self- esteem, increases self- awareness and boosts confidence levels. By stretching and squeezing the body and by incorporating various breathing exercises you begin to unlock stagnant or stale energy and release blockages in your energy field (also known as your Chakras). When you breathe, stretch, release and let go, both physically and mentally, you begin to heighten your awareness and elevate your vibrational energy field. As a result, you end up feeling lighter, taller, stronger and more confident in the body, and clearer in the mind.
  2. Yoga increases core strength, improves muscle tone and helps maintain a healthy body weight. Without any doubt, regular yoga increases muscle tone and helps build abs! Yoga caninfluence weight loss, but often it is not in the “traditional” sense of how we link physical activity to weight loss. Depending on your yoga class – for example; HOT yoga or Bikram yoga can burn up to 1000 calories per class, as it is an intense workout style of yoga. Other gentler yoga practices often burn fewer calories than traditional exercise (e.g., running, cycling); however, yoga can increase one’s mindfulness and sense of self -care, so the way one relates to their body is different. We begin to love ourselves enough not to over eat or self-sabotage, which is a much more rewarding and life changing outcome.
  3. Yoga Detoxifies the body and can prevent against disease. As you twist and rotate and stretch and squeeze, it massages the internal organs and brings fresh blood supply to enable them to function at their best.
  4. Yoga helps decrease stress and anxiety and reduce nervous tension. Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, emotional eating, substance abuse and so on. Yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing can really help improve a person’s mental well-being. It can be useful in reaching a more calm and centred state and help achieve a more positive outlook on life.
  5. Yoga increases flexibility, mobility, stability and improves posture. Improved flexibility is one of the first and most obvious benefits of yoga, along with increased strength and muscle tone. Strong muscles do more than look good. They also protect us from conditions like arthritis and back pain. The combination of the above will results in less injury and reduced aches and pains in the body.
  6. It increases concentration, focus and mental clarity.  A big part of yoga is maintaining balance and being present in the moment. This transfers into life off the mat. Regular yoga practice improves coordination, reaction time, memory, and brings more stability and balance in our physical and emotional world.
  7. Yoga provides energy, vitality and improves the immune system.
  8. When you contract and stretch muscles, move organs around, and come in and out of yoga postures, you increase the drainage of lymph (a viscous fluid rich in immune cells). This helps the lymphatic system fight infection, destroy cancerous cells, and dispose of the toxic waste products of cellular functioning.
  9. Yoga improves sleep and enhances inner peace. At the end of a yoga class you come into the gorgeous savansa pose – ‘corpse pose’ for a mediation as part of a cool-down sequence. At this point the body is relaxed, which enables the mind to become quiet. This is often where people get great moments of insight and feel utter inner peace. This definitely helps to enhance a state of easy slumber.
  10. Yoga enhances your emotional intelligence. Emotionally yoga teaches us how to be loving and compassionate toward ourselves, because as human beings, we have self-defeating and self-limiting tendencies. Practicing yoga brings the content of our beings to the surface so we can see it. Inside the muscles, we hold the memories of every emotion we’ve ever experienced: sadness, fear, anger, love etc. Through the asanas (postures), we can tap into these memories and process our pasts. It’s the asanas that release the emotions out of the body.
  11. Yoga helps to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and elevate our self-care. In yoga, we come onto the mat to stop. To listen. To feel. We come on the mat to get some stillness in a world that is often so chaotic. We get on the mat to re-connect back to ourselves, to centre ourselves and to in effect ground ourselves. By doing this it enables us to feel more gratitude in our lives. It allows us to feel our heart beating and to honour this life that we have. It provides us with some time and space to simply just be. To self-care, self soothe and reconnect.
