Life Balance Escape

Do you want to make a lifestyle change?

Transforming Lifestyles at The elbowroom Escape, Co. Wicklow with healthy nourishment, cleansing, yoga, hiking and mindful exercise. Make a real change in your life and find your balance.

This retreat is designed to help you de-stress, detox, rest, relax, nourish your body and feel great. It will empower you to make healthy diet and lifestyle choices when you return to your usual routine.

Healthy living is possible for us all. Transformation is possible while lowering cholesterol levels, lowering blood pressure and lowering blood sugar. A private session with both our yoga instructor and nutritionist are included during your stay. This will have you sustain the change when you get home.

If you want to kick-start a healthier lifestyle or just take a break from your existing one, we can offer you the time and space you need to create the best you possible.

Time off work, or away from family life can be tricky so The elbowroom escape is offering 3 Day and 6 Day Life Balance escapes between March 31st and April 5th. Contact Amanda on 083 1838013 to discuss the details.

My first experience of yoga was in the early 90's and falls somewhere between the realm of amusement and humiliation. I was about 25 years old, a runner and cyclist and like most of people, I initially went to yoga to become more flexible. As an athlete I was result driven and competitive and as yoga encompasses neither of these traits, I veritably suffered.

Back in those days Jane Fonda headbands and neon lycra were compulsory, and as a dedicated fashionista, my leggings clashed with the linen-clad yogi-hippies who remained oblivious to my pain as they quietly breathed and effortlessly stood on their heads. I'm glad I kept on going back because that little deviation from my norm eventually led to some amazing life changes and I became a teacher of yoga.

Going back a little further, I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1987 and some years later I was Operations Manager in a busy Social Work department. Yoga and fitness helped me to manage my stress. In the summer of 1999, a conversation over a pizza and a beer brought about an incredible life change that wasn't exactly planned.  I changed my career and moved to Amsterdam. I taught yoga and fitness classes, designed in-house training and education programmes for a chain of gyms and eventually went on to open Amstel Yoga Lounge.

In 2012, I relocated to Dublin. I'm a yoga teacher, a writer and a Be Activated -Neuromuscular Activation Practitioner and I truly love my work.
