About this Event

Join us to celebrate the abundance of summer and the beginning of harvest season for our Lughnasa Retreat, a wonderful day of movement, nature, detox and relaxation.

When Selena and I began our retreats together three years ago, we were making real our dream to combine our gifts and create an offering of heart-felt yoga and food in a beautiful space, themed around the 4 Celtic festivals which we would often celebrate together ourselves.

Since then, we have loved welcoming our guests on our special weekends, where they are given the space to leave behind their everyday lives, take some time to nourish and recharge their body and soul, and to reconnect with themselves and with new friends too!

In the spectacular surroundings of the Avondale Retreat Centre, in the green hills of Wicklow, you will find peace and deep relaxation. Practice and explore Yoga and Meditation with Aoife and eat delicious vegan food prepared by Selena of Wild Sage Bakery.

The Celtic festival of Lughnasa marks the beginning of the harvest season, in between the summer solstice and autumn equinox. It was a time of ceremony, feasting, matchmaking and pilgrimage. It is even thought that we had athletic competitions at this time. At our Lughnasa day retreat we won’t be holding any competitions, but will celebrate the end of summer time together with yoga, feasts and gratitude!

You will also have free time to rest, wander the surrounding woods and gardens, take time for yourself and even detox in the infrared sauna!

Ahimsa Yoga Ireland - Ahimsa is the first principle of Yoga and it means gentle, non-harming. Ahimsa embodies Aoife’s approach to sharing Yoga, through a unique blend of movement, stillness, meditation, breath and chant, she gently encourages you to listen to your body, quiet the mind and open the heart. Aoife has been practicing Yoga since 2003 and teaching since 2012. On this weekend she will guide you through gentle slow Yin Yoga, meditations and Yoga Nidra relaxations in the evening and mindful dynamic Yang Yoga and meditations in the morning and afternoon.

Selena is the creator of Wild Sage Bakery, a plant based food company which specialises in making healthy vegan cakes, treats and savoury items. Her love for culinary, plant-based alchemy grew during five years which she spent living, travelling and learning abroad. Her passion is creating food which is nourishing for the body, mind, soul and earth. She has recently teamed up with Cornucopia, Dublin's oldest vegan and vegetarian restaurant, and is currently developing some new menus for them.
