    • Tim McEvitt

      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.

    • Renata

      She found yoga in 2003 when she lived in Italy. There, she studied with a wonderful and experienced yogini named Silvana Ferrante, who had learned the yoga techniques in India where she had lived for many years. In 2010, she graduated from the Rishikesh Yoga Peeth, India, where she attended to one of the most recognized programs certified by the Yoga Alliance.

    This retreat will be held at Mandala House near the shores of Upper Lough Erne, Ireland. Mandala House is located 400 meters across the water from Inish Rath Island. The Lakeland area is a peaceful sanctuary where you can enrich your body, mind, and soul. Peacock strut openly around the island, while in the local area heron, swan, and deer wander freely in the peaceful lakeside atmosphere.
