Yoga and Hillwalking WEEKEND RESIDENTIAL

Description:

Join us for a weekend getaway in the beautiful Glenmalure  Valley for a weekend of Yoga and Hill Walking.  The weekend will include a gentle Ayurvedic yoga & meditation practice which is suitable for suitable for all levels and abilities.  As you relax and restore the body, you will be more open and receptive to welcoming in the peace and beauty of the natural surroundings.  The venue is situated with Wicklow Way trail access from our doorstep.  You will have the opportunity for guided and self guided hill walks throughout the weekend to explore this peaceful and beautiful valley.  While walking, you can connect with nature, views and yourself.  This weekend will be a wonderful opportunity to step away from your regular routine, to relax and connect more deeply with yourself and nature.  All vegetarian meals and lodging are included.  Holistic massage is available at an extra cost.

The yoga practice we will do over the weekend is Traditional Ayurvedic Yoga, which is a self intelligent system that balances all Ayurvedic doshas with its gentle practice.  Ayurveda, “life-knowledge”, is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.  It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease.  Ayurvedic, Tri-Dosha Yoga is a wonderful way to balance your Ayurvedic doshas.  The doshas are biological energies found throughout the human body and mind. They govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfillment.  This practice is a self intelligent system using a series of poses done lying down (on back and belly), focusing on the breath and relaxation to bring balance to all doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.  This Tri-Dosha series balances your internal state on all levels, mind, body and spirit.  It is a meditative practice done with eyes closed for a deeper ability to sense the flow of the poses.  The practice will finish with a short pranayama breathing practice to sharpen the mind and invigorate the body.
