Ecology of Yoga (April 2020)

Ecology of Yoga

April 10th – 13th

Join Daithí Ó hÉighnigh & friends on this co-led Easter weekend retreat in the Gyreum Ecolodge, Co. Sligo.

Ecology of Yoga ~ A residential cultural and wellness Easter weekend retreat celebrating the Ecology of Yoga. An exploration of asana, pranayama, music, mythology and how the practice of yoga can lead to a deepening of the conversation with our authentic selves and the world around us @ The Gyreum Ecolodge (Sligo).

Guest contributors include:

  • Emma Warmington (Jivani Yoga)Emma will lead a 1-day Jivani Yoga immersion and an evening Kirtan concert on Saturday 11th.
  • Seán Ó Gaoithín (Head Gardener at Glenveagh National Park & author of “Lugh na Bua – Lugh the Deliverer“) – Seán will lead a spirituality/ecology nature walk along the banks of Lough Gill through Hazelwood forest on Sunday 12th April.
    • “I want to open a conversation about drawing from the deep experience of being alive in Ireland today. How we step into our holy communion with what we call biodiversity – the Nature of our landscape as a living mandala. We find this mandala expressed in the Celtic Cross, in the arrangement of the ancient provinces of Ireland – of the qualities that Fintan recounted and where sovereignty is found.”
  • Matthew Noone will provide musical accompaniment to restorative yoga and will be joined by Tommy Hayes as An Tara on the evening of Sunday 12th April for the closing concert.
  • Daithí Ó hÉighnigh will lead Hatha, Restorative, Yin & Yoga Nidra practices over the weekend.
