New Year yoga retreat

Margarida teaches a vinyasa yoga which is inspired by ashtanga and the movements are coordinated with the breath.  She also teaches restorative yoga and breath focused meditation.

Margarida makes her classes suitable for all ages, and all levels of fitness.  So rest assured even if you are a complete beginner, you will be fine for these classes.

This New Year yoga retreat is a lovely combination of yoga and meditation classes, organised outings into the Burren hills and by the sea, amazing vegetarian food and is lovely way to bring in the New Year with a group iof like minded people.

Her Vinyasa yoga classes use a combination of ujjai breath, bandhas (inner energy locks) and Drishti (focussing one’s gaze) to bring the awareness inwards.

She is an extremely experienced teacher and will guide each person at the level appropriate to their own body and what they need at the time.

She has found that with proper alignment for each individual and looking at chronic holding patterns of the mind, body and emotions combined with breath, the movement of Prana to help heal is readily made available. 

There is a meditation class in the morning and evening each day, and one of the benefits of our week-long retreats is that you can then take these practices home with you.

See top class yoga teacher Margarida’s yoga bio at the end of this page.

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.

Outdoors in the Burren on all of our retreats.

All ages hill walking Burren Yoga

All our classes, outings and meals are optional, so you are free to join all or some as you please during the weekend.

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.

We are famous for our food and so many people have said they would come back time and time again just for the amazing vegetarian food.  Our chef will prepare all our vegetarian meals with organic and locally sourced vegetables and the finest ingredients.

Margarida Tree yoga teacher

Margarida Tree is originally from Canada, and owned and operated her yoga shala for 15 years in Florida before moving to Ireland.

She has been teaching for 28 years with a down to earth approach arising from an appreciation of both the eastern practice and the western lifestyle. Margarida makes the yoga practise accessible to everyone and encourages her students to do a consistent practice in order to improve health on a mental, physical and emotional level.

Margarida’s classes include vinyasa yoga and also restorative yoga.  Her vinyasa classes are inspired by Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and she uses a combination of ujjayi breath, the bandhas (energy locks) and Drishti (focussing one’ gaze) to bring the awareness inwards.

Our inner awareness is cultivated in the breath-focused meditation during the morning and evening meditation practice.

The Yoga Nidra is a lovely deep relaxation practice, which cultivates a gentle awareness while in a deeply relaxed state.

Margarida makes her classes suitable for all ages, and all levels of fitness.  So rest assured even if you are a complete beginner, you will be fine for these classes.

Demystifying yoga, her classes are based on the 8 limb approach of yoga.  She incorporates asana (poses), pranayama (breath) and meditation and chanting, combined with inward awareness.
