Sinead is an experienced Yoga Teacher with a passion for everything Yoga has to offer. She enjoys demystifying Yoga and delivering the practices and traditions an accessible way for all to discover.
On this retreat, you will be able to dive deeper into your knowledge and understanding of Yoga. If you’ve completed a Teacher Training course, it’s a fantastic way to reaffirm your knowledge and gain a deeper understanding.
Each morning will begin with optional Kriya practice. 3 extremely useful cleansing practices outlined in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, a classic 15th century Sanskrit manual on Hatha Yoga.
This is then followed by 2 hours asana practice. Expect this to be dynamic, creative, challenging and fun!
Each morning practice is then rounded off with a 1 hour meditation practice.
We break for a hearty brunch, and a little time to rest.
Mid-afternoon Ed or Sinead will offer an optional workshop for you to attend. This could range from movement based practice, to theory, history, extra meditations – anything! You will receive details closer to the time of retreat.
In the later afternoon we all gather together again for a 2 hour physical practice. Expect this to be something more soothing and conducive to winding us down from the day. Yin, restorative, slow flow, Yoga Nidra practices.
We then enjoy a tasty dinner and an evening off to enjoy however you wish!
