Yoga Walks Ireland 2020
From April to September
Yoga Walks Ireland is a new concept bringing together yoga and walking, healing card reading, accommodation and more. The guided walks will take you on a wonderful journey of reflection & self discovery.
Yoga means ‘union,’. Many aspects of yoga are in fact about being in the moment and at one with nature or the universe.Being outside can intensify the yoga experience in many ways, since nature inspires all things —focusing awareness, breathing deeply, practicing stillness. Once you begin to think more in terms of embracing rather than battling the elements, a breeze can deepen your breathing, the warm sun can deepen poses by making muscles more pliable, and a ladybird can invite you to focus on something small and still.
Because there are so many different kinds of yoga practices, it is possible for anyone to start. Whether you’re a couch potato or a professional athlete, size and fitness levels do not matter because there are modifications for every yoga pose and beginner classes in every style. The idea is to explore your limits. It is a great way to get in tune with your body and your inner self. An amazing experience for visitors to experience our natural landscape in a unique way for mind and body. If you would like to try one of our specialised Yoga Walks at Galty Castle Woods & Glengarra locations contact us today!
