May 4th and 5th 2019
Wilderness Lodge, Glenmalure, Co.Wicklow
I am extremely excited to be collaborating with Ambrose Flynn www.hikeandclimb.ie to offer you this chance for Adventure, Inspiration and weekend to remember.
Do you love the idea of taking on new exciting challenges, or hear the call to adventure?
Naomi and Ambrose have created a unique weekend experience to find adventure, to meet new people, to get out into the wild and to take time to tune in.
In our current era where we can allow ourselves to become very comfortable and under challenged, we know there are a range of physical and mental repercussions. This weekend is specifically curated to allow the participants to fully engage physically, experience demanding real adventure and to hone their mental tools and techniques in fearful or involving situations while having fun.
Naomi and Ambrose are extremely passionate about creating an experience to press re set on your day to day lives, take time away from your screens and to get out of your comfort zones.
You will be in the hands of skilled and trained expertise, to guide you every step of the way.
**We have divided the weekend into two day events Saturday May 4th and Sunday May 5th, both days will involve the following fun adventures;
-Cold water immersion
-Yoga and Meditation
-Mindset awareness, reflection and discussion practices
This will be a weekend of truly getting outdoors and tuning in:-)
Heart and Soul retreat
For School Teachers
January 6th 2018
Dominican Retreat Centre, Tallaght,
A day dedicated to teachers.
Yoga, Meditation, Reflecting and Relaxing
I am excited to announce this retreat especially designed for school teachers and to offer the practices of Yoga and Meditation that can help support the work of a teacher.
This retreat will be for replenishing, rejuvenating and for your own self care as a teacher. Often teachers can drain their own resources in taking care of others and considering others needs. Demands on teacher can be great and all too often teachers forget or neglect their own needs.
Take this day to relax and unwind before the start of a new term and connect to your own heart and soul, giving you the space to start the year from a renewed perspective and a nourishing pace.
-10am Arrive and Yoga Rejuvenating Class
-12pm Meditation and Journalling
-2pm Mindful Walk of the beautiful grounds and Yoga Deep Relaxation Class
*The full day includes classes and sessions, take home practice notes, coffee/tea and light lunch
