“a little piece of heaven” Michelle

“you’ll be floating in blissful relaxation” Aoife

The Celtic festival of Lughnasa marks the beginning of the harvest season, in between the summer solstice and autumn equinox. It was a time of ceremony, feasting, matchmaking and pilgrimage. It is even thought that we had athletic competitions at this time! At our Lughnasa weekend we won’t be holding any competitions, but will celebrate the end of summer time together with yoga, feasts and gratitude!

Selena will provide nourishing plant-based meals made with seasonal vegetables and lots of love. She'll be cooking up a delicious, lunch to welcome you after yoga on Sunday, and nourishing dinner to send you off later that evening (with a few treats too!)

Aoife will guide you through a mindful Hatha yoga practice on Sunday morning, to awaken your body and clear your mind, and a softening Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra before dinner.

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 6 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.
