Quality vinyasa yoga weekend and meditation

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

The morning vinyasa yoga classes will be dynamic and very good for improving flexibility and removing energy blocks helping you feel fully alive during the rest of the day.

Kathryn is a very experienced teacher and will give you a firm foundation on yoga principles as you move into each posture with awareness.

There is a lovely variety of classes on this vinyasa yoga weekend.

The afternoon class will be a slow relaxing restorative yoga class where we will explore some deep yin style restorative postures.

A restorative yoga practice can rest your body deeply; stretch your muscles (stretch connective tissue) lower your heart rate and blood pressure, and relax your nervous system, moving you into a peaceful state of deep relaxation. 

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.

See top class yoga teacher Kathryn’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 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.
