Quality yin inspired hatha yoga retreat

Niamh teaches Yin Inspired hatha yoga, which brings to the fore the central principles of Yin; compassion; softening; letting enough be enough; and permission to adapt and support as you uncover your body’s needs.

Her classes bring you back to the breath and the present moment. Sensing the body and how you feel on all levels as you sink deeper into the postures and allowing one’s experience to simply unfold, rather than trying to achieve or push oneself too hard.

Niamh has a very good ability to guide your awareness inwards on this yin inspired hatha yoga retreat.

Niamh then uses this inner awareness to subtly guide each person through the practice. She does this with a lightness and a sense of humour so that her classes are enjoyable as well as relaxing. She encourages each person to be compassionate with themselves, and not to force or strain or over-achieve, but instead to let go, tune inwards and to be guided by their own intuitive layers of their being.

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.

There is a lovley variety of classes on this yin inspired hatha yoga retreat.

See top class yoga teacher Niamh’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 optional activities such as surfing, kayaking, sea swimming, swimming in our nearby lake which heats up during the summer.

Daily Outdoors in the Burren on all of our retreats.

All ages hill walking Burren Yoga

On Monday you may like an optional treatment in our massage therapy rooms, or you may decide to take some time to yourself to either explore the Burren or put your feet up to relax at the centre.

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

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.

Suitable for All

This yin inspired hatha yoga retreat is suitable for complete beginners to intermediate. 

Niamh will give instructions that will guide complete beginners or advanced practitioners to go deeply into the postures and to let go on all levels.  The actual practices are reasonably gentle… but the sense of ‘letting go’ is very profound.

There are no comparisons made between people, and this yin inspired hatha yoga retreat is suitable for everyone.

Teaching since 2004, Niamh is a registered Senior Yoga Teacher.

She is also one of Ireland’s longest standing teachers of Yin Yoga. In addition to running classes and workshops, and helping private clients through Yoga, Nutrition and Exercise, she created, and trains teachers worldwide in Yoga for Menopause.

Niamh first became attracted to Yoga by the physical fun and challenge but before long she realized there was something much broader available. What fascinated her was that Yoga worked on physical, mental and emotional levels, as the release of old tensions and habits transformed her connection with life.

Niamh has trained in Hatha Yoga, and studied and practiced many of the variations of Yoga from it’s more traditional roots in India, to new approaches and schools of yoga, and with world-renowned teachers in Yoga, Somatics, Anatomy, Neuroanatomy, Nutrition and more. These perspectives drew her to a deep respect for the delicate strength of the human body and brain, and so she is particularly interested in using Yoga’s wide-ranging aspects to support muscle, bone, organ and brain health via movement, stress-reduction, and sleep support.

Niamh teaches from an evidence-based perspective, but also from the heart. You will learn tools that will help you move and live more freely, but your needs will be prioritised over any class plan, and you will be offered ways to help your body and nervous system love what you do.
