Reclaim your health, energy and love of the outdoors

Michelle Moroney
Winter can be a difficult time with shorter daylight hours and colder temperatures. It can be a season that many of us hibernate and spend more time indoors. While sometimes this can be enjoyable as we curl up by the fire with a book, the long disconnect to nature can take it’s toll and many of us end up feeling low at this time of the year.

This special retreat turns this idea on it’s head by not only welcoming the winter in, but using it’s properties to explore our relationship to this season: the cold, the wet and the windy weather.

 

We will not only get outdoors, we will celebrate being outdoors in this darkest of seasons. We will hike, surf, swim and (pier) jump right in and enjoy the amazing gifts that nature at it’s wildest offers us.

 

Wim HofBeing in the cold is empowering and has massive health benefits. Michelle is a qualified Wim Hof Instructor, senior yoga teacher and former cold-fearer. Join her on an exciting adventure into the depths of winter as she shares how she came to love the cold. Many of us fear the cold but once we realise that we have the power to breathe through it and allow it in instead of resisting it, we emerge powerful, alive and full of energy. You too will discover this.

Wim Hof Method

Our thoughtful schedule has elements of heat and cold. We will start the day with a flowing Vinyasa yoga class to heat the body and wake us up. Our mornings will take us out into nature, whatever the weather is and each day we have a different and exciting schedule. Our afternoons are free to soak in the hot-tub, the herbal steam or the Infrared sauna and we finish the day off with a Deep Breathing session, meditation and restorative yoga class in our stunning studio. The events are framed with some of the most delicious food you will ever taste and when this week is over you will have a new appreciation for the elements, the cold and your own inner strength.

We are 7kms from Lahinch driving straight out on the road to the Cliffs of Moher. As you enter Lahinch follow the signs for the Cliffs of Moher and Liscannor (it’s a right turn before you come into the main street of the village).

Drive along that road, with the golf course on your left. After 4 kms you will reach Liscannor Village. Continue driving through Liscannor Village. After another 3kms turn left, just before The Rock Shop (which is on the right side of the road). After 200 metres you will reach a crossroads, turn right. Continue up the road for approximately 750metres, we are the third property on the left, you will drive up a long driveway and we will be waiting for you there!
