About This Event

Join us at The Academy at The Cliffs of Moher Retreat for a 3 week Intensive 230 hour RYT Yoga Teacher Training with senior teacher Michelle Moroney.

We do yoga not to be better at yoga, but to be better at life

“Our relationship with yoga is what we share as teachers. This is our gift to the world, and our unique voice is what we offer, and what we share. All good trainings will teach you how to structure a class, how to safely instruct a pose and how to align the body in asana. Our course will cover all of this in an in-depth and complete way embracing and welcoming all learning styles. The benefit of an immersive training in a retreat location like ours is that you have the opportunity to go really deep; into the practice, and into yourself and to find your own unique teaching voice and what YOU have to offer the world”. – Michelle

We provide a variety of luxury yoga retreats throughout the year.

Our architecturally designed building has been lovingly created with your retreat in mind. All the details have been carefully planned and thought out.

Menu Types

  • Vegetarian


Food is such an important part of a yogic lifestyle and at our beautiful retreat we believe this whole-heartedly. Our clean, organic, vegetarian meals with much of the produce grown onsite, keep our retreat guests coming back year after year and they all rave about our delicious food. For this special training we will be serving our incredible food with love and gratitude and sharing our methods, ingredients and recipes with you too. During the training we will have mindful eating experiences where we will eat as a meditation and not only will the food nourish and sustain us during this deep immersion but it will be part of the joy, and a fun relaxing part of our day.
