Enjoy a fabulous weekend retreat on our stunning north coast, a time to get away from the busy-ness of daily life, and enjoy some time for yourself to relax, unwind and recharge.
Here's what a recent attendee wanted to share about her experience on the Autumn Equinox Wellness Weekend Retreat
"WOW, thank you so much for a wonderful weekend retreat.
It was my first experience so i really didn't know what to expect. I loved every aspect of it! From the yoga and meditation classes which were taught so professionally to the healthy fresh tasty abundant food,and also my first experience of Kirtan. What a great location to have on our doorstep which enabled us all to drop out of our busy lives and just be for a few days. I am still feeling the benefits of this fabulous retreat. Still feeling relaxed,i enjoyed the early morning yoga/meditation so much that i have incorporated a 30 minute routine into my day. Despite feeling very relaxed i am more focused,can concentrate better and my to-do list is rapidly diminishing!! Quite amazing really. " CH, Belfast
