About this Event

October Retreat –

Unwind, Renew & Restore

Come away with me on this retreat to the Glen of Imaal in the Wicklow hills for a weekend to connect back to nature, back to yourself. It will give you the opportunity to unplug, to get away from stressed out deadlines and toxic news. The weekend will start with Yoga, taking time to bask in nature’s wonders in the garden of Ireland, with me Chris Molloy. This weekend will be spent in beauty, remoteness and the calmness of the Wicklow hills. While only an hour from Dublin we will be in a tranquil and nurturing space.

You will spend the weekend enjoying yoga, meditation, relaxation & walks. You will enjoy locally sourced organic vegetarian food, all bedrooms are en-suite with rain head showers pouring water from the Glen of Imaal, laying in spring beds made from Irish wood by the owner. The space is set up for Restoration. As we bask in the beauty of Autumn’s colours and sounds.

Covid 19 –

Your health & safety are of utmost import so all government guidelines will be adhered to. The number of people coming on the retreat has been reduced. In the event the retreat is cancelled your money will be refunded.

Friday

Upon your arrival Friday (anytime from 5pm) you will be met with a welcome tea and brought around the Retreat Space, if you want to explore go ahead. We will have a welcome evening practice at 7pm followed by dinner at 8.30pm in the dining hall. This practice will start with some journaling. Journalling is a practice that allows you to write down how you are feeling, to see it and feel it. You will be encouraged throughout the weekend to spend time with your thoughts. You will receive a beautiful new journal to use for the weekend which will be yours to take home.

There is an optional 2 hour Woodland Walk at 11am, this is normally done in silence for those who wish but of course there’s space for us talkers too! 2pm is lunch followed by free time to relax, grab a nap or read a book by the fire. At 5.30pm there will be a workshop on ‘Yoga on & off the mat’ and what that means to our everyday lives. Evening practice will be at 7pm with dinner at 8.30pm.
