Ireland Retreat co-led with Jenn Wooten,  April 22-28, 2022

Join us for a week in mystical, magical Ireland! We were inspired to create this retreat because we were called to visit the land of our heritage and ancestral history, and after our fist sold-out retreat in 2019, we knew we’d be back!

Family owned and run, Ballymaloe House will be your home for 7 lovely days and 6 nights. Tucked into the quiet Cork countryside and complete with farm, gardens, artists residency and a world renowned cookery school, your days will include morning and afternoon yoga classes, farm to table meals, strolling the property, picnicking on the Ballycotton cliffs and more. You’ll enjoy a day trip to Cork city & Blarney castle, and have the opportunity to visit the Jameson distillery or enjoy a cooking demo at the Ballymaloe Cookery School.

Stroll with us through the gardens, linger over libations and create new friendships while you dine on farm raised food and get to know the family of Ballymalloe.

Morocco Yoga & Cultural Retreat, Oct 1-7, 2022

Get ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime! Morocco is one of the most culturally rich and interesting places in the world. Morocco is defined by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert to the south and east. These features provide a diverse landscape dotted with ancient cities, expansive Argan forests, and stretches of empty beaches.

The Morocco Yoga Retreat begins in the culturally rich city of Marrakech. Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech was founded as a city in 1062 AD, and is world renowned for its souks (markets) and medieval maze-like streets, stunning mosques and palaces, relaxing hammans (Moroccan baths), delicious food, and much more.

From there we head to Essaouira. Nicknamed the Pearl of the Atlantic, this cultural city is famed for its rich music and arts scene, and was home to many famous artists and musicians in the 60’s and 70’s.
