You will be accommodated at the Burren Yoga and Meditation Center during this holiday. You will have the possibility to choose from a shared room, a twin or a double room, and a single private room. The center can sleep up to 21 persons, but for the retreats, the maximum is 15.

The beds have been individually handed carved by their local carpenter Johnny Ray. The shared accommodation has bunk beds. These are not the usual bunk beds, the top bunk bed is hand carved and suspended from the ceiling. The lower bunk bed is completely independent of the upper bunk bed with plenty of headroom in between.

The mattresses are very high-quality orthopedic mattresses, with a top layer of memory foam, ensuring one of the most comfortable nights of sleep. The bed linen is high thread count Egyptian cotton and lovely to slip into after a full day of yoga, meditation, outdoor activities, amazing vegetarian food, and laughing and socializing with like-minded people. All the beds are freshly made up before you arrive.

You will be supplied with a bath and hand towel. All the bedrooms have underfloor heating and are warm and cozy even in the winter time. The center has four shared bathrooms, each with a shower, hand basin, and toilet and an extra toilet shared between the 15 retreat participants. They do not have any en-suite bathrooms at the yoga center.

Program

Niamh Jones will give variations so everyone works at their own level. Feel the amazing benefits of a weekend of Vinyasa flow yoga, Hot yoga, Yin yoga, yogalates, and meditation all in the one weekend giving your body a complete toning, stretching, and detoxing from the inside out.

Niamh is a very experienced yoga teacher and she has taught many very successful yoga boot camps before, and has taught at the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre for many years. This weekend will cover everything your body and mind needs from various styles of yoga, meditation, Pilates, and hiking in the Burren Hills together with excellent vegetarian food.

It is a great way to give yourself that kick start you need whether you need to lose weight, tone up, deepen your yoga practice or renew your energy. There will also be meditation classes which will introduce meditation to beginners and also deepen the practice of those familiar with meditation. It is also a great way to try out a variety of different yoga classes all in the one weekend.

Each class is individually designed to work on specific parts of your body on a physical level and mental level, so by the end of the weekend, you have worked every part of your body and mind inside and out.

As part of this yoga boot camp retreat, Dave will take your group out on a guided hike into the Burren hills or by the sea. This is a great way to get to see some special places in the Burren well away from the usual tourist places and followed by lunch at one of the local restaurants or cafes which is a great way to sample the best of the locale cuisine in the Burren.

After lunch, there is time to chill out and relax at the center, before having a Hot yoga class with Niamh. She has taught Bikram yoga for many years, so be prepared for a lot of sweating, detoxing the body, and a challenging class ideal for flexibility and toning.

On Friday and Saturday evening, Paddi who used to run Seventh Heaven Restaurant for over 12 years, will prepare a vegetarian dinner for you. This retreat is suitable for complete beginners to intermediate, but one should be prepared for a good challenge to your body.
