…we’ll begin with yoga and meditation in a room with an ocean view and heated floors. Each class will have a unique theme and work on strengthening and stretching different areas of the body, warming up both our bodies and our minds. Classes are appropriate for all levels and options are always given.
…Every afternoon we will head out into the countryside and explore the Irish landscape. Activities change each year depending on participants and the weather. Past adventures have included:

-This year we will have an emphasis on local plants, wildcrafting, and general herbalism skills. Be prepared to make and take things home with you, with ingredients sourced from the Irish landscape.
…every evening we will head to the pubs and local halls for music, dancing, or cultural events. Ireland is home to a very inclusive social scene and the pub atmosphere is familial and full of laughter. Past events have included:
-Irish Set Dancing lessons with live accordion music
-Céilí (Irish Set Dance with tea & cake)
