Join Wild Atlantic Way Yoga's "Hygge" yoga retreat weekend in Cork, Ireland. Every day you will wake up by the sea, fill your lungs with the fresh air of the Atlantic Ocean and immerse yourself in the teachings of Geraldine O' Neill (on Novemeber 10) and Sarah Fox (on November 17) who wish to hold the sacred space of yoga so others can experience this deeper connection with their own essential nature within. This special “Hygge” weekend will have a mixture of movement based classes in the morning and more restful practice in the evening to make sure you sleep well! Geraldine has a deep appreciation for the sea, hence the location for this retreat. What better way to get perspective, in the run up to Christmas, than walking the Old Head of Kinsale, on the Wild Atlantic Way!
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 16:30, just in time for a strong yoga class after sunset. You will end the day with a soothing Restorative yoga practice, 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 November 10-12 Hygge weekend, while Sarah Fox will be your host on the November 17-19 weekend retreat.
“Hygge”, loosely translated as cosiness, or according to the Danes, as an undefinable feeling of warm and belonging, is the feeling you have when cosied up in front of the log fire with soft ambient candle lighting and sharing beautiful food with like-minded people. It’s turning a space into a “nest”, placing your phone away, chatting with friends and engaging in some lovely yoga to revive the body and rest your mind.
The opening ceremony is on Friday evening at 5 p.m., followed by a nice, long, 90-minute yoga stretch, meditation, and relaxation with yoga Nidra after dinner.
The Saturday morning 30-minute walk is optional and is followed by a 90-minute Vinyasa Flow yoga practice. There will be free time after brunch on Saturday for a walk along the Wild Atlantic Way or a trip into Kinsale town or simply read a book. The evening practice is comprised of Restorative yoga for 90 minutes, followed by meditation and relaxation yoga Nidra after dinner.
On Sunday you will have a morning Vinyasa Flow yoga practice for 120 minutes. The closing ceremony will take place after brunch.
The yoga program and style may differ depending on the teacher but all programs will include daily yoga and evening meditation. For further program information, kindly contact Wild Atlantic Way Yoga.
