Retreats

Our 1 or 2-day Retreats are designed to give you an opportunity to turn your focus inwards and give yourself time for you – to move, stretch, breath, rest, reflect and simply be.

Each retreat has its own unique features such as our one day Yoga and Kayak retreat with Lough Derg Watersports. Our one-day wellness yoga, self-massage and hiking retreats and our weekend all-inclusive yoga and meditation retreats.

One Day Spring Wellness Retreat – Belmont Mill

Spring is a time for new beginnings, for new seeds to be planted, a time for rebirth and re-emergence, a time to rejoice in life and the in beauty of nature. You are invited to join us at Belmont Mill, Belmont, Co. Offaly for a one-day Spring wellness retreat, where we will celebrate the beginning of Spring by connecting in with ourselves, planting seeds of intention for the year ahead and mindfully observing the gentle awakening of nature

Starting at 10.30am with a grounding meditation, sowing intentions and time for personal reflection. Nessa will then lead you through a very slow and gentle yoga practice, to warm and awaken the body and give you the opportunity to connect in with your body and your breath and allowing the mind a chance to rest.

After a yoga you will be served a warm and hearty lunch, before heading out for a stroll along the banks of the grand canal (1hr mins approx.) Here you will be invited to mindfully connect in both with yourself and your surroundings as well as having an opportunity to chat and connect with others in the group.

On returning to the Mill we will be guided through restorative yoga and self-massage, followed by deep relaxation and Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep Practice). To soothe the nervous system and promote and feeling of wellness and restfulness in the whole body.

The day will conclude with a closing circle, meditation, teas and a tasty treat.

This one-day retreat is open to everyone, no yoga experience necessary. Not suitable for pregnancy. Places are limited so early booking is essential.

Friday Night yIn

Come in side and turn inwards with this relaxing and meditative 2-hour Yin Yoga practice. Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. The long-holds of this floor based, meditative practice give you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi/Prana (energy) that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we’re opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely.

The session will finish with 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra.

Various dates available : Jan 20 2023, Feb 24 2023, March 10 2023.   Tickets €25

Tickets are limited. Suitable for beginners. Not suitable for pregnancy.
