    Wild Atlantic Way Yoga is a traditional Irish farmhouse. While immersing yourself in your yoga practice, you will be looking out at the Atlantic Ocean while enjoying the intimate setting of only eight guests. The farmhouse was brought back to life at the turn of this century, along with retaining the original features; the double height, underfloor heating, and yoga studio was added.

    There are four double or twin bedrooms and two bathrooms which the majority of guests will be sharing. The four rooms are allocated upon arrival and will accommodate two people each. Private rooms are subject to availability for a supplement of 55 EUR. You will enjoy the experience of a traditional Irish farmhouse with beautiful views of the famous Old Head and of course, the Atlantic Ocean.

    You will arrive on Friday at 17:00, just in time for a strong yoga class after sunset. You will end the day with a soothing Restorative yoga practice or with yoga Nidra, creating that dream-like high after savasana, which must be felt to be believed. Yoga is suitable for all levels.

    For the rest of the weekend, you will enjoy mouthwatering vegetarian meals, two sunrise yoga practices, and an evening yoga class. You will practice pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation every morning. The afternoon is free for you to explore and unwind in the stunning setting of The Wild Atlantic Way Yoga.

    Geraldine O' Neill will be hosting the January 26-28 detox weekend, Bella Hancock the February 2-4 women-only weekend, while Sarah Fox will be your host on February 16-18, and Marion Buechner on the February 23-25 weekend retreat.

    Detox with Geraldine O' Neill - January 26-28

    Your food for the weekend will focus on detoxing. This retreat incorporates a tailored meal program with workshops and food demonstrations with Shirley O’Halloran, Wild Atlantic Way Yoga’s owner and resident nutritional advisor. Yoga teacher, Geraldine O’Neill, will talk about Ayurvedic medicine, using food to heal the body and creating a sustainable, detoxifying lifestyle by making small behavioural changes. You will leave feeling cleansed and toned, and with a copy of the one-week menu program, to help you continue to eat well at home.

    The yoga program is tailored to support the detoxification process - classes will focus on boosting energy levels, charging up the immune system, eliminating toxins, and resting and restoring the body and mind.

    Women-only with Bella Hancock - February 2-4

    Imbolc is the first day of spring in the celtic year. You will celebrate the gently growing light with a nourishing and revitalizing yoga practice, to send you on your way into the beginning springtime.

    February can be a hard month for the body and mind, the tail end of winter, the light is growing, but you are often depleted after the dark winter days. A yoga retreat can be an ideal way to gently restore yourself, and that will be the aim of this retreat weekend. Gentle flowing yoga, Restorative yoga, yoga Nidra, and energizing pranayama to support body, mind and soul. It’s a time for sharing and meeting each other, as well as a quiet time. As this is a retreat for women only, part of the practice will focus on yoga that is especially suitable and nurturing for women.

    Sarah Fox - February 16-18

    Marion Buechner - February 23-25

    Approaching the spring season, you will awaken and energize your body through a beautifully designed Vinyasa flow sequence focusing on detoxifying twists and gentle backbends to open your heart promoting growth and creativity. The Yin and mediation practice will leave your mind and body calm and relaxed, and your heart nourished - restoring overall equilibrium. Throughout all classes, therapeutic-graded essential oils will be used to enhance your experience.
