About This Retreat: 

The New year Retreat takes place in the historic 600 acres of forest and woodlands of Lisnavagh House on January 05th - 07th. This is an invitation to welcome 2024 by reflecting on the year that's past, turning inwards and growing in strength. By giving your yourself a break from your daily routine, to immerse yourself in nature. To tap into a space of calm and tranquility. The patterns of nature are clear to see at this time of year. It is about resting, going inwards in practices and preparing to renew for Spring.

Join me for a weekend of nourishment and care with yoga twice daily, begin your day with a morning meditation, Cacao ceremony in the evening, journalling, forest bathing, dipping in the lake & walking. There will be plenty of opportunity for alone time & space. All meals are also included in the price below. The beautiful studio space is fully equipped with mats, bolsters, blankets.

Enjoy nourishment from the gardens of Lisnavagh as well as local, organic, vegetarian food. The options are to share but why not treat yourself to a single occupancy four poster bedroom. Lie back and take time and space for yourself. Big fires crackle in the Dining Room and in the Library each person will find comfy sofas to curl up in with a good book. This is a well earned "look after me" time and it is our aim to help each person to slow down their pace of life and rejuvenate their body by stepping away from worries and stresses.

In love, light & space

x Chris

A bit about Chris

My teaching is all about enjoying the practice but being clear that this is alignment based Āsana. So I use alot of words encouraging you to use your intellect in your practice to embrace your inner teacher. To tune in to how the pose feels in your body.

There are 3 things areas that inform my yoga teaching – Yoga history & Philosophy, Nature and Creative Living. The history of Yoga is a history of the World, no matter how we come to Yoga we are met with compassion, guidance on how to live a true life and are taught acceptance of our true selves. Yoga is a tool to use through life’s journey rather than a fix it all pill. Nature as in how we inhabit this world, how we show up. This involves the relationship to ourselves, to all human & sentient beings & to Mother earth herself. Creative living meaning the food we eat, embracing the ever seeking & curious mind, going for a dip in the sea no matter how cold, digging your hands in the ground, smiling at the sun and making time for music and dance.

After studying Social Science in the London School of Economics I knew I wanted a career that involved seeking to understand our united and communal role on this earth. My initial training was in the Yoga Rooms Dublin with Ciara Cronin, studied with Doug Keller, have been shaped & influenced by practicing with the wonderful Lou Horgan’s female centric yoga. Summers have been spent practicing with Sol Viegas enjoying the precise direction of the Iyengar lineage. In 2023 I studied Katonah Yoga with Abbie Miller. The techniques underpinning the Katonah practices come from classical Hatha yoga, Taoist yoga and the panpyschic vision belonging to western esoteric philosophy.

Each class with me is intelligent, fun, functional, but most of all, authentic.
