The retreat centre is beautiful, clean, welcoming and in a quiet place in nature. With lovely food and walks. The yoga studio feels spacious and light with amazing views. Lisa is a wonderful teacher. She meets everyone as and where they are in a way that makes you feel seen, accepted and safe. She embodies the yoga and somatics practices with joy, playfulness and a world of knowledge. Being at the retreat felt like coming home to my practice as a teacher and a student. I arrived exhausted and departed refreshed, inspired and centred. When I read there would be a retreat with Lisa for teachers with even more time for yoga/somatics practice I booked as soon as I could.

Lisa will assess each retreat participant and based on her experience she will decide what to include on each day.

  • 2 hour Afternoon class
  • 40 minute Evening class

This retreat will include asana, vinyasa, somatic inquiry, breathwork, meditation, and yoga Nidra.

There will also be short lectures using kinaesthetic/visual material (PowerPoint, anatomical models, and other avenues) to help you embody yourself in new ways.

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

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

Each day we will have a guided outing into the Burren hills or by the sea.

This retreat is different to our usual retreats, as the outings will be shorter and more time will be devoted to the actual teaching and learning experiences with Lisa.

During our guided outing we stop off at one of the local cafes, and this is a lovely opportunity to taste the best of the local cuisine.  Lunch is not included in the price of the retreat, and each person looks after their own lunch.

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

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.

Designed for Yoga teachers

Suitable for All

This special Yoga Teachers Retreat is designed for yoga teachers so that they can deepen their understanding and learn techniques to help them with their own teaching.

However, the retreat is suitable for everybody and the yoga practices will be reasonably gentle.

This is a lovely yoga retreat for anybody who really wants to deepen their own practice.

The classes are reasonably gentle but work at a very deep level to help you let go on all levels. 

Lisa trains a lot of yoga teachers, so we will have many yoga teachers attending this special retreat.  

Lisa will give variations so everyone works at their own level.

There are no comparisons made between people, and this course is suitable for everyone.

Come on your own, or with a friend

A great way to meet like-minded people and make new social connections.

We have a wide range of en-suite bedrooms and also budget sharing rooms to choose from.

Lisa Petersen yoga

Lisa Petersen is one of Ireland’s most well-known international Yoga Teacher Trainers. She is known for her integrity, clarity, and presence. She first came across yoga when she spent 1.5 years in India in from 2000-2002. She was captured by the ease, grace and peace that yoga had to offer. It has been a central part of her life since.

During her time in India, Lisa began Vipassana Meditation. She is also a long-term Metta meditator (the practice of loving-kindness). She recently completed seven years of formal meditation training in the Clarity Process with Taetske Klein.

Lisa has been sharing the art of teaching Yoga and Somatics for over two decades. She is passionate about guiding people towards personal transformation both on and off the mat. Her teaching is informed by a rich understanding of embodiment, experiential anatomy, and developmental movement patterns. She is passionate about finding the balance between being and doing, movement and stillness, strength and fluidity, discipline and freedom.

Lisa is simply superb–- seamlessly combining her knowledge of Somatics and Yoga in a way that is clear, accessible and engaging.  She brings a palpable warmth and enthusiasm into her teaching that is infectious and that encourages even the most timid of students to explore new territory. As a faculty member on my own teacher training, she has surpassed all my expectations.’
