Spring is in the air and we can see the landscape changing. It is time to connect to that fire in our own belly and emerge from the energy of winter to our inner Spring. This retreat is created with that in mind. Our classes are tailored with two two aspects in mind, we will turn in, find some quiet to listen to our own gentle stirrings. And we will move and breathe and create heat to burn away the cobwebs and set our attention and intention with aligning our inner self to our outer world.

 

 

As the season of Spring slowly begins this is a wonderful time of year to embrace the essence of creation. This weekend will give us the space to reflect on the year ahead and ground into our body’s – physically, mentally and energetically.

yoga studioPracticing yoga in a stunning space in the West of Ireland with un-paralleled views of the Atlantic ocean, we will connect wholeheartedly to our bodies, our minds and our spirits. Spring offers birth and growth and this weekend brings the gift of reawakening our senses to the transformation within ourselves as well as within our environment. Join us for a weekend of yoga, walking in the beauty of the cliffs, time for relaxing by warm fires and enjoying food that is nourishing.

 

SaunaAs we come to the midpoint between the Winter and Summer Solstice, the Spring Equinox invites us to connect to balance. The balance of our internal and external worlds. This retreat is about taking a step back to reset and embody the energy of Spring. It is about unfolding and rooting into our year and re-connecting with intentions set at the beginning of 2023

 

Cliffs of Moher HikeOver the weekend we rest back into our yin practice and yoga nidra, we awaken with our morning meditation, pranayama and yoga practice and we connect with our land and surroundings with our daily walks embracing the wild beauty of this part of Ireland. Come, join us and rebalance your world.

 

Whenever you need that time-out, our very special weekend escape can provide those moments of reflection you need. Whether it’s during our silent walks along the Cliffs of Moher, curling up with a book by our cosy firesides or drinking in the views of our glass-fronted studio as you arrive back in your body, you’ll find your release – a time when you truly forget the outside world and learn to be present in the moment. If this sounds like the weekend break for you, we look forward to welcoming you.

Common Questions
What time is check-in?
Check-in is at 4pm for a weekend stay & 5pm for a longer stay..
My flight gets in earlier than the 4/5pm check in, can I come earlier?
We will be preparing the retreat centre at that time and if a group checked out that day your room will be not be ready if you are arriving very early. We recommend getting the taxi to drop off your bags and then taking you into Lahinch. We are isolated and there isn’t anywhere to get lunch but Lahinch has cafes, restaurants, shops and a lovely beach. Your taxi can arrange to collect you again later.
My flight arrives a day in advance - can I stay an extra night?
We don’t have guests staying earlier as the centre is not open before a retreat. There may also be a retreat still in progress.

We recommend staying in Lahinch which is only a few kms away and has walking access to hotels, hostels, B&B’s, shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and a lovely long beach.

My flight leaves the next day - can I stay an extra night?
We don’t have guests staying an extra night as the centre is closed after a retreat. There may also be a retreat starting.

We recommend staying in Lahinch which is only a few kms away and has access to hotels, hostels, B&B’s, shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and a lovely long beach within walking distance.

I arrive into Shannon Airport, what's the best way to get to you?
Please visit our Getting Here page for full details.
Will I be able to share a transfer from Shannon airport?
It will depend if there are others on the same flight. Due to GDPR regulations we are not in position to provide other guests’ contact details and organise this for you. If you are in a position where you have to pay for a taxi on your own on the way in, it is usually easier to get back to the airport as you can look into public transport or get a lift with another guest driving past the airport.
Is there Wifi?
We have wifi for guests in Reception House, which has a comfortable, communal lounge to read, relax and get online if you want to.
I'm coming on my own can you pair me to share?
