Christmas yoga retreat 2018

It can be lovely to spend Christmas day and Stephen’s day at home, and then to come to the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre to bring in the New Year in the most positive way.

We start each day with a yoga and meditation class.

After the class we have a hearty breakfast and go on our daily guided outing.

Dave who runs the yoga centre will personally take you to one of the special locations in the Burren. This may be a walk in the Burren hills or a walk by the sea, or a walk in the forest or one of the other magical locations.
