Tim left his home at Dublin when he was 18 years old to become a Krishna monk, which was initially a bit of a shock to his family but now everyone is happy. He trained at Bhaktivedanta Manor temple near London and then lived in the temple on Inish Rath Island for eight years. While in the temple, he studied Vedic philosophy from the ancient Sanskrit texts such as the Bhagavad Gita and the Bhagavat Purana, plus he learned kirtan-yoga and sacred chant music.
Chrissie is originally from Germany, though has a sweet Irish accent. She is a yoga teacher and a tour guide. She sometimes travels around Ireland to assist German-speaking tourists with their holiday. But back in Fermanagh, she shares her unique yoga tips during the retreats. She was trained in Doi Saket, Thailand with a school which traces its lineage back to Paramahamsa Madhavadasji in the line of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

The food on this vegetarian detox week-end prepared by Carmen was fantastic. T' ai Chi sessions by Frances Mc Hugh and Yoga by Lucy (not on drop down menu) was excellent. I liked Tim's chanting and harmonium playing and the guided walk through the woods. The people on the week-end were great. In terms of cost it was also excellent value for money. The facilities as you would expect given the cost are basic but impeccably clean.
