Who is this escape for?

Do you know that you need to reduce stress, but you don’t really know where to start!

Or, maybe you have implemented a comprehensive diet or exercise routine into your life, but you feel frustrated with the results and you know intuitively that there is some kind of missing key element to your well-being routine.

You may be curious about the transformative power of slow, mindful yoga & breath-work?

Or, maybe you just need a little bit of restorative ‘me’ time!

While exercise & diet are the essential building blocks to good health, dealing with the mental and emotional stresses in your life is also central to any sustainable health care routine.

This is what this morning is all about!

Surrounded by acres of unspoilt woodland, this morning yoga retreat provides you with an opportunity to explore your personal journey toward well-being through a deeply relaxing, creatively designed morning in a gorgeous centre styled by talented interior designer, Noirin Ni Chonaola.

This is the perfect location for you to take time 'out' from life's chaos!

I am a great believer that the best food experiences engage all of our senses and stimulate the imagination.

 This menu has been designed around my mindful eating blog (see link) and will complement a session during the day on how mindfulness can support you on your journey toward achieving optimum weight.

I am passionate also about how food is presented and love to experiment with colours, fragrances & textures that stimulate the senses when styling our table for all of our yoga retreats in Ireland.  You can look forward to nature inspired themes, and decorations to generate meaningful conversation.

Our menu is a surprise! It will be lovingly prepared by one of Galway’s most talented Master Chefs (you will not be disappointed - and I am honoured to have him!!). His philosophy: “let the food speak for itself!”

Autumn is Calling!

This retreat experience is inspired by Kristine Kaoverii Weber’s research on yoga & neuroscience, as well as my own experience of moving through some incredibly stressful life events with the support of yoga & mindful meditation. It is a unique opportunity to get to the heart of life-style related health care challenges, by addressing how STRESS disrupts your body’s natural ability to restore, rebalance & revitalise.

It is an opportunity to stop the clock, put aside the chaos and step into a beautifully prepared nurturing space.

Autumn is a really special time of year for reflecting upon our attachments, letting go of that which no longer serves us and for spending time preparing our lives for the cold, wet winter months ahead. A tree does not hang onto it’s leaves forever; it releases them into the breeze of change. This is why I am so excited to bring you this new series at this time of the year!

Autumn is the transition season. It leads us from warm summer days to the cold, dark evenings. It is the perfect time of year to address some of the issues in your life that are holding you back, and to implement a life-enhancing daily self-care routine that will support you through the winter months.
