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.
Uneven, natural surfaces such as sand, grass, or the woodland floor can intensify a yoga posture and its physical benefits
Our choice of location is very important as we ensure that our natural environment is always safe. We use beautiful locations located at the foothills of the Galty Mountains on the Tipperary, Cork & Limerick borders in Ballyhoura Country, the heartland of Irelands Ancient East.
Pairing up yoga and nature can be an incredible experience if you are ready to embrace the outdoors. The open space really expands everyone’s mind, and creates an instantaneous freedom you just can’t replicate indoors.
We feel Yoga is for everyone –of all ages and abilities.
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.
