"Sometimes the only way to move forward is to retreat"

Price: €650

A very special 5 night Well Woman Yoga Retreat with the wonderful teacher Tara Mestre, www. taramestre.com

This is an opportunity for you to reconnect to the energy of mother earth, really switch off and take some time for you. 

This is a female focused retreat indulging in :

-Womb Yoga practices to allow us to access our inner guidance system so that as women we can lead more peaceful, enriched and empowered lives

-Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) to promote deep rest and relaxation

- Essential Oil Sampling and Education to provide us with opportunities to invite more natural solutions into our daily lives

-Menstrual Cycle Awareness to help us discover the unique power that our cycle holds for us and how to live in sync with it

There will also be plenty of time to do nothing, to allow the body to rest and to take in the beauty of the surrounding with walks in the countryside, wild swimming and more. 

This retreat is for anyone who would like to take some time to reconnect and tap into their feminine wisdom. 

Monday 29th July - Friday 2nd August  

A 4 night Gong and Yoga retreat with the wonderful Bonnie Telford. Contact Bonnie here for bookings and further info.

When we listen to the sound of the gong it is an opportunity to vibrate the whole of the body and bring it back into a state of harmony through forced resonance.

We first hear the sound of the gong with our ears, then as the gong tones begin to be packed into the space their very denseness and the saturation of the tones cause the body to become one great ear.
We then begin to feel the gong sounds within every cell.
The gong is a powerful healing tool. Healing is about change- The changing of old thoughts, habits, patterns and behaviour that no longer serve us, these can cause dis-ease and sickness in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. It can take you on a journey where we may see colour and have hallucinations that can help shut out the mind chatter and allow us to enter a natural meditative state.

On this wonderful retreat you can expect to enjoy....

  • Early Morning yoga class
  • Morning Gong session 
  • Wholesome breakfast.
  • Free time to explore the local woodland and surrounding areas / use of the swimming pool.
  • A light healthy vegetarian lunch.

Massage treatments available at an extra cost.

Price : €525

Sunday 12th - Friday 17th August 

A 5 night Yoga retreat with the amazing Natalie of  www.urbanpearlyoga.com visit her gorgeous website here with all the details of the retreat.

Natalie believes that everything is yoga, from ayurveda to astrology, and hot chocolates to sunshine. It’s a way of getting to know who we truly are by reconnecting to and nurturing the soul.

She teaches Hatha Flow and Yin yoga, with 500+ hours of Yoga Alliance certified training from Dr. Gaurav Malik in India and Sarah Lo in London. Hatha Flow is a holistic and dynamic practice, working the entire body to improve balance, strength and flexibility. Yin is floor-based and moves at a much slower pace, with poses held for a longer period of time to allow for deep release of blockages in both body and mind, and increasing energy flow. Her classes typically include pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation and mantra.

'We usually smile and often giggle, because although yoga is a serious, life-changing practice, we don’t always have to be so serious while doing it'

A light heart and a smile can go a long way on the mat. Nat encourages softness, emphasising the breath and alignment to help you go deeper into your own practice of yoga.

On this retreat you can expect to enjoy....

  • 8:00 Pranayama (breathing exercises)
  • 8:30 Yoga asana
  • 10:00 Breakfast
  • Free Time/Massage (including lunch)
  • 16:00 Workshop
  • 18:00 Yoga asana / meditation / mantra
  • 20:00 Dinner

Everything is optional! If you’d rather sleep in or chill with a book, you’ll find no judgement here. The schedule shown is just an example and some things might get shifted around if needed due to the weather or the energy of the group.

If you have any questions regarding any of the retreats above or would like to make a booking please contact the teachers directly or Get in Touch with Ella here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the land very soon!
