VITALITY RETREATS IN 2018
Revitalise Your Natural Essence
New dates for upcoming retreats to be announced very soon!! To be the first to know email me email@example.com
The 3-day Vitality retreat invites you to unwind in the serene settings of Lisvanagh country estate on the Wicklow/ Carlow border – just over an hour drive from Dublin.
You will enjoy over 12 hours of tuition, guiding you to revitalise body, mind and spirit through Healing Yoga, Somatic Movement, Tension Release, Sound, Dance and Self-Awareness Practices. You will revive the senses further with organic meals, serene woodland environs, cosey open fires and beautiful period accommodation at Lisnavagh Country estate.
Our intention is to revitalise the body to its natural capacity for healing, learn from its wisdom, align with our true nature and develop greater self-awareness.
Opening the body we open the mind. Through the body, we will experience space, stillness, e-motion, sensation, vibration and bliss.
