Quality May Bank Holiday retreat 

Carmel teaches both Vinyasa flow, and also Yin yoga.  In her vinyasa flow classes  one’s focus is maintained on the breath, and coordinating the breath with the flowing movements.  Carmel’s Yin yoga is more relaxing and restorative.

The flow class in the morning will start with Pranayama (breath practise) to ground and center followed by Vinyasa flow sequences- Vinyasa means movements with breath making Yoga essentially a breath focused movement practise or moving meditation.

Poses will be taught from foundational level up with sound anatomical principles so new students can work safely to explore or more experienced students can deep their practise.

Sequences will flow from simple to more energetic – this class will tone, strengthen and increase flexibility.

The class in the morning will be more energising and in the afternoon more relaxing on this May Bank Holiday retreat. 

Carmel’s soothing voice will encourage each person to challenge themselves in a safe way while she keeps an eye on each person to ensure you are practicing correctly.

The Yin class will consist of long held seated poses where poses will be held typically held for 2 to 4 mins to access the body’s connective tissue. This stretches and tones ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, bones and all the body’s fascia preventing inflammation and improving mobility.

There is a meditation class in the morning and evening each day, and one of the benefits of our retreats is that you can then take these practices home with you.  A lovely combination of classes, outing and amazing vegetarian food on this May Bank Holiday retreat.

The Burren Yoga Retreat is located at the foot of the Burren hills nestled amongst the hazel trees.

You are surrounded with a vast choice of special places in the Burren where we go for hill walks, Nature Trail walks, walks by the sea, beautiful beaches and forests to explore.

There are lovely places to swim in the sea or in our nearby lake which heats up during the summer.

However over 95% of people relish the freedom of not having to decide or choose what to do each day, and go with the full programme which is a well tried recipe which we have been running and improving on since 1999.

Carmel has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years and is originally from Limerick.

She has travelled extensively and lived in South Africa, UK and Paris before setting roots with her family in Cork where she now runs her own yoga studio.

Carmel first came across yoga when she was in college and enjoyed the open feeling in the body and also the way the breath can bring one’s awareness inwards.

She was fortunate to also be interested in meditation from an early age, and later went on to study Transcendental Meditation and found the stress relieving benefits of meditation to be life transforming.

In 2002, Carmel undertook her first 200 hour yoga teacher training course, and later went on to complete a Diploma in Yoga Therapy with the YTTC.
