About this Event

Retreat into the welcoming darkness of winter with Ahimsa Yoga’s Samhain retreat. Treat yourself or someone you know to a restorative weekend of movement, creativity, nature, detox and relaxation.

Selena and I are delighted to invite you to celebrate our fourth Samhain gathering at Avondale Retreat, Rathdrum

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, eat Selena’s delicious Vegan food, spend time with like minded people or escape for some alone time!

The Celtic Winter festival of Samhain marks the Celtic New Year, which begins with a phase of darkness, retreat and hibernation. In celebration of Samhain we will hold a special evening of chant, meditation and mandala making, a ritual of intention and letting go which enables us to approach the winter and the Celtic New Year with love and focus.

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.
