Heir Island: Yoga and Mindfulness



For the second year Claire Osborne and I will be running a Yoga and Mindfulness Weekend retreat on beautiful Heir Island, off the West Cork coast.

Claire Osborne will share gentle asana, and mindful movement, breathing practices, yoga nidra, mudras and chanting to link us with the wild nature of the island through the senses.
Paola Vais will be sharing seated and walking meditations, focusing on present moment awareness and loving kindness.

Cost €320 (sharing) / €340 (single room) includes teaching, accommodation, all vegetarian meals and ferry to and from the Island.

Early bird until 1st June – €290/€ 320




Mobius Center – the studio is behind the big window!


FRIDAY: Start 6.30 pm with dinner followed by a welcoming ritual and relaxing yoga and meditation (registration from 6 pm)

SATURDAY: we’ll start with a morning practice of yoga and meditation, followed by breakfast and some free time before the morning sessions. Lunch will be at 1, with some time after to explore the island, go for a swim or simply rest before the restorative afternoon practices. We’ll have dinner at 6, and then meet again for the evening meditation and yoga Nidra.

SUNDAY: THE morning will unfold like Saturday, and after lunch the retreat will end with a closing circle, in time to catch the 3:55 Ferry.
