About us

‘Be – and yet know the great void where all things begin, the infinite source of your own most intense vibration, so that, this once, you may give it your perfect assent.’ (Rainer Maria Rilke)

 

 

Winter is the perfect time to slow down, tend to the inner garden of the soul, set new intentions, and reclaim our capacity for wonder and joy. As the ground rests and the natural world is enveloped in delicious quietness, so the grounds of our being -our body and soul – are given time and space in which to be replenished and continue to grow. This retreat is designed to help us reap winter’s quiet and often overlooked rewards; refill our emotional and physical reservoirs; and connect to the aliveness and radiance within us.

 

The meditation sessions and walks will be an opportunity to enjoy some quiet time – to pause, honour the silence and beauty of our surroundings, and allow ourselves to just be present. By slowing down, we can begin to come home to the body and connect to the sensory experience of our embodied selves. The yoga sessions will help us explore this sense of somatic awareness even further, through moving at the rhythm of the breath, tuning in with the symphony of sensations, and refining our relationship to the ground, gravity, and the space around us.

 

While practicing we will focus on finding balance between yielding and engaging, on trusting the inherent intelligence of the body so that we can learn to wait for those opening moments when we can go further, and to pause when we meet resistance. Finding this balance, this natural inner rhythm, happens through a practice that is marked by curiosity, playfulness, and self-care: with this in mind we will approach each pose and each sequence not as a goal but as a way of developing an intimate connection with ourselves, our needs, and the life force that connects us.

 

Overall this winter retreat will be an invitation to connect with nature and its many wonders; to nurture and fully inhabit our embodies selves; and to bring the qualities of inner stillness, calm attention, and loving kindness we experience on the mat into all spheres of our lives.

 

 


Venue Highlights

Our purpose designed, luxury venue is set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher and the beautiful countryside of Co.Clare, Ireland. We are located on the west coast of Ireland and Europe just about the mid-point of The Wild Atlantic Way, a 400 Kilometre stretch along Ireland’s rugged western coastline. We provide a variety of luxury yoga retreats throughout the year.

Join us in our beautiful yoga studio and watch the wild waters of the Atlantic Ocean from the comfort of our under-floor heated space. Set in the grounds of our retreat and facing directly out to Liscannor Bay, a massive wall of glass spanning 10m x 3m takes in the most stunning sea-view.

Our architecturally designed building has been lovingly created with your retreat in mind. All the details have been carefully planned and thought out. You will find the most modern heating system, bringing the room to the temperature of your choice. There is a state of the art sound system operated by Bluetooth and our lighting scheme allows for different moods and options.

The space is fully stocked with yoga equipment including mats, blocks, bricks, belts, blankets and bolsters. We have a fluoride-free fresh water filter and 2 bathrooms, one of which is wheelchair accessible. There is a large spacious arrival hall and a beautiful therapy room which is available to use for massages and other therapies.

The yoga studio has been orientated with the South-facing glass curtain taking in the views of the Atlantic Ocean and there are 2 panoramic windows, one facing East and catching the morning sunrise and the other facing West and allowing the pink light of sunset to filter in.

Menu/Cuisine

Our Food Philosophy

We believe in delicious food that makes us feel great. We believe in food that leaves as little footprint as possible. We believe in food that is cooked and prepared with love, in a harmonious environment. We believe in organic. We grow our own vegetables. We believe in local first, regional second and international after that. We believe in food that supports the community. We believe in BIG FLAVOURS. We love colours. We believe the kitchen is a blank easel where creative juices are allowed to flow with the seasons, the weather, the mood and the people creating it. We believe that food is at the heart of our retreats, that our dining room is the main place where groups all meet as one, as equals and as valued guests.

Food is a leveller. Food is for sharing. Food is community.

We believe that the atmosphere in which we eat accounts for a lot of the experience.
We believe in homemade, handmade and happy.
We believe in simple, sensual and seasonal meals.
We believe in service and we are honoured to serve you.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon
