Prepare for your retreat
Although the yoga will be suitable for all levels including beginners, I do recommend taking a few yoga classes in the build up to the weekend if it’s been a while. This will just get you warmed up a little as there will be a lot of yoga over the retreat weekend. That being said, every class is optional so if you just want to dip in and out of the activities that’s absolutely fine.
Extra activities and therapies not included in the price:
Accupressure Massage with Ling Ling Jiang’s team
Pottery class with Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre
All beverages from the bar extra

All inclusive Yoga & Kayaking or Yoga Intensive Retreats in Heir Island
Heir Island Off the coast of Skibbereen Co. Cork
Heir Island is a beautiful little Island off the coast of west Cork, It has 7 beaches, majestic cliffs and only 25 year-round residents. Retreaters will stay at the gorgeous Roaringwater Lodge Guest House owned by John and Patricia and will enjoy delicious vegetarian cuisine. Accommodation is based on twin/double sharing with some private rooms. All rooms are en-suite. www.heirislandsailingschool.com
Classes will be held in a stunning purpose built retreat centre just a 2 minute lazy walk by the bay from the guest house. The centre has a beautiful studio overlooking the bay and a chill out room, therapy room, kitchenette and bathroom.
The Yoga classes will suit all levels and the weekend will include Ashtanga flow classes, focus workshops as well as meditation and pranayama sessions.
Kayaking is optional but highly recommended as the scenery around the Carbury Islands is spectacular from the water! And you don’t have to have any experience to give it a go!
For our yoga intensive weekends we substitute the kayaking for…….. more yoga. This weekend will include Ashtanga Vinyasa, Focus Workshops, Yin Yoga, Meditation and Pranayama. The level will be slightly more intense than the other weekends so not suitable for total beginners. However, like in all my classes, it’s never just for advanced practitioners, and modifications and props will be offered throughout.
Morning meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises)
Morning and evening Yoga classes and after dark Yoga Nidra
Daily kayak trips around the islands ( Not on March retreat)
Led contemplative walk
All breakfasts, lunches and evening meals
Spring & Summer 2018 dates to be announced
Optional holistic therapies are available on the island with the lovely Rosie of heirislandholistics.com
€50 deposit required to secure your booking.
