About This Retreat: 

The Final Days of Spring Retreat takes place in the historic 600 acres of forest and woodlands of Lisnavagh House on April 26th-28th 2024. This is an invitation to turn towards summer and by turning inwards and shedding the layers of winter & spring. This will all be about renewing and opening up. Our yoga will be based on energising, awakening and opening up by day and slow focused liver sequencing Yin Yoga night. By giving your yourself a break from your daily routine and to tap into a space of calm and tranquility. It is about resting, going inwards so we build strength within the body & mind to set us up for the next few months of being out & about and in the world more than we had been through the hibernation of Autumn and Winter.

Join me for a weekend of nourishment and  selfcare with yoga twice daily, Hatha/Vinyasa by morning, yin by night.  Begin your day with a morning meditation,  journalling, forest bathing, dipping in the lake and walking through the surrounding forests. Lisnavagh is on 600 acres so there is a lot of space to saunter around. 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. There is also the opportunity to book in for a treatment during free time (at an extra cost).

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.

About Your Teacher: 

The Teacher for this event

Cara Sothern

My name is Cara and this is my hub for all things Intuitive Living, what does that mean you might ask? Well let me tell you a little bit about me and my story to help you understand.

I am a life coach specifying in food and body freedom from disordered eating. I offer one to one coaching to individuals, schools, workplace and group settings on how to heal one’s relationship with food and their body.

I am also a highly experienced yoga instructor of 15 years and run weekly classes, private sessions and monthly yoga and hiking mini day retreats from Greystones and Bray.

My journey to both life coaching and yoga began with an eating disorder I developed suddenly after the death of my beautiful mother when I was just 15 years old. Its quite a long and interesting story where I struggled with fertility, becoming a mother, a stroke and lots more in between. You can read my full story on my blog here.

My personal journal has taught me so much along the way and I feel my life’s mission is to empower others to live the life they were meant to live and the life they want to live!
