Yoga

This weekend will be packed with opportunities to practice yoga.
We will offer a mixture of Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and pranayama classes and workshops for a total of approximately 8 hours of yoga during the whole weekend. Opportunities to practice guided meditation will also complement the sessions.
Yoga, especially when practiced together, is a great way to empty your mind and drop into your body but we also advise that you listen to your needs and opt for rest, stillness or other activities if that feels right for you.
The yoga teachers are Anna and Vera.

 

Nutrition

We will be offering delicious, fresh and nutritious food during the course retreat that will be entirely cooked on site with love by our chef Laura and sous chef Alisha.
The meals will be carefully planned with attention and knowledge by the nutritionist Vera with the aim to provide a weekend of food that will be restorative for your gut and your entire organism.
The food will be mainly vegetarian and gluten free and Vera will use a paleo-ketogenic approach to construct the meals, making sure that every meal is made with natural ingredients and packed with fibre, fat and protein in order to maintain your blood sugar balanced.
Your allergies, intolerances and dietary requirements will be collected when you sign up and options will be provided when necessary.
Having a nutritionist on site sets this retreat apart from other yoga retreats and will give you the opportunity to discuss your general wellness or any digestive related questions with Vera.

Connection and Community

You make the retreat!

We believe in building a sense of community and in the power of gathering together like-minded individuals with the same vibration. 

During the retreat there will be occasions to meet other people and share your story as well as to spend time alone nurturing your need for solitude.

We believe that everyone contributes to making this retreat amazing, therefore we look forward to you joining us and bringing your unique energy to the table.

Skill level - who is this for? 

The yoga classes we offer in this retreat are open level and suitable for beginners.

You don't need to be "good at yoga" or "good at meditating" in order to join us. Just bring your energy and we'll take care of the rest.

Sauna and Hot tub

The use of sauna and hot tub will be made available during the retreat on arrival before the opening circle on the Friday to kick start the relaxation and drop right into the mood of the retreat, and during the free time on the Saturday afternoon.

Depending on the weather they might be made available at other times and on request. There is also a natural plung pool on site to cool off after the sauna.

Outside space

During the retreat there will be opportunities to immerse yourself in nature on arrival, during the free time on the Saturday afternoon or before classes.

Six circular forest walks can be started from Sli na Bande and ten minutes drive from the retreat there is the charming loop walk around the Roundwood reservoir.

Nourish your Nature philosophy:

The purpose and beauty and true magic of yoga is the practice of tuning into our needs, and learning how to respond accordingly. Any other benefit is simply a bonus.

This ability to respond to what we need is the essence of self-compassion.

Some days this might be a vigorous asana practice, another day it could be a gentle yet transformative yin class; and yet another day, the most suitable practice for you could simply be some soothing breathwork and awareness.

That’s what we suggest for you on this day. We are here as your humble servants to provide the framework and hold space for you to listen more closely to you. We have various practices on offer, but essentially you will gain the most benefit by doing as much or as little as is right for you. Moving slower when needed. Moving with greater energy when that’s what your body and mind seem to desire.

What our clients say:

"Vera’s yoga is so warm and inviting. I’ve practiced yoga for a decades and it’s rare to feel as held and supported in a public class. To combine her offering with Alisha’s gentle and deep gong bath was incredible. I’ve never experienced such a range of textures and vibrations from one gong. The bath was both immersive and unobtrusive (with other facilitators I have sometimes felt the sound was too much, LOUD and inappropriate for the size of the room). I slept really well afterwards and, those good vibes have carried on today." - R, Senior yoga teacher

"I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Yin yoga with Anna, I feel so good afterwards. I think it’s really good for me and my job especially when you work on opening the chest and heart! I’ve also tried to be more thankful today… nothing is a chore or an effort, gratitude is my mantra today." - C
