Enjoy a special weekend of pampering, incredible pregnancy yoga classes, amazing food and walks in nature.
Picture yourself basking in all the beauty and tranquillity the Cliffs of Moher Retreat Centre has to offer during this very special time in your life. Growing a baby, preparing for birth and parenting can sometimes be an emotional and physical rollercoaster. Therefore Melissa, through all her years experience teaching mothers, has created a nurturing pre natal yoga retreat weekend for you to enjoy, rest, sleep, wander and explore the peaceful surroundings, as well as learn ways in which you can best stay fit, well, relaxed and encourage self-care during your pregnancy. This in return sets the tone for a positive attitude towards birth.
There is nothing more in life that connects you to nature than a pregnancy. We will create a sacred space for you to nourish your mind and body through the healing benefits of yoga, meditation, bonding with baby, tuning in to your needs, breath, relaxation, delicious food, stunning scenery and the most comfortable beds. Melissa has designed this pre natal yoga retreat to suit all capabilities, whether you are a first-time mother, have other children at home or any pregnancy related complaint, by including the very best of Hypnobirthing and yoga methods. Most importantly Melissa’s intention is for you to completely let go by relaxing and also feel empowered to move, breathe and do whatever suits you best.
Throughout the weekend Melissa will be available to answer any questions, offer guidance and support. Friday evening’s deep relaxation class will melt away any tension and have you curling up in bed for a good nights sleep. Saturday morning’s class will build strength and stamina as well as leave you feeling stretched, toned and relaxed, whereas the evening class intends to prepare your mind and body for birth with lots of positions for birth, baby bonding and visualisations. Sunday’s class will leave you feeling refreshed, energised and confident ready for your journey home and ahead. This will be followed by a closing ceremony and yummy lunch.
Make this pregnancy extra special by joining Melissa and the Cliffs of Moher Retreat for a truly magical experience.
Venue HighlightsOur 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/CuisineOur 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.
