Ciara has been practicing yoga for over twenty years and has been teaching since 1999. She has studied with a number of senior teachers throughout the world, the equivalent of more than 1000 hours of direct teaching. Over the last ten years her practice has evolved into a deep, slow mindful integration of asana, breath work, and meditation. This has been inspired by her studies with Rossella Baroncini, who was a direct student of Vanda Scaravelli for 17 years. Ciara will teach you how to practice a deep, slow mindful integration of asana, breath work, and meditation,
Christophe was originally trained as an Iyengar teacher in the late 1990s, but his practice and teaching have since been influenced by a number of other yoga styles, particularly Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and the Atma Vikasa style of Acharaya Venkatesh (from Mysore, India), his main teacher for a number of years. He also teaches pranayama and has been practicing various styles of Buddhist meditation for many years.

"Loved it. The peaceful location "
Loved it. I love Clare Island, loved the food. Loved the program of yoga and meditation, gave me a good explanation and experience of both. The mindfulness and breath work with horses was really good, as I had experienced some difficult times with horses in the past. This was perfect for me to gently explore and heal, to give me a confidence that I could get closer to re connecting with the beautiful horse. Christophe and Ciara were lovely hosts and teachers.
