Anam Fiáin (Wild Soul) Retreats

Treat yourself or someone you know to a restorative weekend of movement, creativity, nature, detox and relaxation! Leave behind the stress of your everyday lives to nourish and recharge your body and soul at Anam Fiáin’s Imbolg Retreat from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd of February. In the spectacular surroundings of the Avondale Retreat Centre in Wicklow, you will nurture every part of yourself, with wonderful food, yoga and company.

We will celebrate the longer days and beginning of Spring. The Celtic Springtime festival of Imbolg marks a time of fertility, purification, creativity and the return of light and new life. In celebration of Imbolg we will have a special evening circle with meditation, craft and intention setting and planting on Saturday night.

Selena will provide nourishing plant-based meals made with seasonal vegetables and lots of love. She'll be cooking up a delicious, warming meal to welcome you on Saturday evening, a breakfast buffet for after yoga the following morning and a nourishing lunch to send you off on Sunday afternoon.

Aoife will guide you through softening Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra on Saturday evening, and a mindful Hatha yoga practice on Sunday morning, to awaken your body and clear your mind. Before lunch on Sunday afternoon we will have a gently challenging Hatha Flow class to build strength and confidence.

You will also have free time to rest, wander the surrounding woods and gardens, take time for yourself and even detox in the infrared sauna! The communal spaces of the retreat will be technology free zones, and we invite you to embrace the opportunity to take a digital detox while you’re here too!

Ahimsa Yoga Ireland - Ahimsa is the first principle of Yoga and it means gentle, non-harming, and loving. Aoife has been practicing yoga for over a decade, and teaching for 5 years, and Ahimsa embodies Aoife’s approach to sharing Yoga. Through a unique blend of movement, stillness, meditation, breath and chant, she gently encourages you to listen to your body, quiet the mind and open the heart. 

Selena is the creator of Wild Sage Bakery, a plant based food company which specialises in making healthy vegan cakes and treats. Her love for culinary, plant-based alchemy grew during five years which she spent living, travelling and learning abroad. Her passion is creating food which is nourishing for the body, mind, soul and earth.
