The benefits of investing in your well being are immeasurable; here are just a few reasons you might want to book this retreat.

1.   Deepen your understanding of asana and pranayama practices in an environment where you will feel supported and guided by two yoga teachers.

2.  Develop your meditation practice in a centre where you can fully switch off from outside distractions.

3.  Eat well.  This retreat includes healthy and delicious vegetarian meals throughout your stay.  No cooking, no shopping, and no stress.

4. Self Reflect. Take time just for yourself to connect and reflect through the physical practices of Yoga but also through the guided practices of journaling and self-reflection.

5.  De-stress:  It goes without saying that on a yoga retreat you are sure to deeply relax and de-stress.  Be refreshed and renewed by the glorious Wicklow countryside.  Lie in bed for a little longer if you like or wake and join a class or a hike during the day.  And did we mention the hot tub?  There’s a hot tub.

6. Nature –  Escape to the beautiful landscape of Wicklow at a particularly stunning time of year as the leaves amongst the forest turn. We will take a guided hike on Saturday afternoon amongst the beautiful Wicklow hills.

7. Meet new friends.  Yoga is about connection and you are guaranteed to meet people on a yoga retreat with similar interests.  Whether you come on your own or with friends you are just one Om away from a new yoga community.
