YOGA TEACHERS RETREAT at
THE BURREN YOGA
June 9, 2022 - June 15, 2023
Join me for a 6 nights luxury escape from Friday to Thursday in the Burren. It's an amazing week in the primal Burren landscape, swimming in crystal clear water and eating incredible food. Dave just revamped the entire centre with a new yoga room, singles with ensuites and more.
I'm excited to be offering something new, and with a maximum of 18 people it keeps it very real, authentic and intimate. We will be spending over 26 hours in training with each other to give you time to embody yourself in new ways, grow and thrive as a teacher and practitioner. We really get to jam!
For the yogis,
you get three sessions a day with me - a 2 hour morning session, a 2 hour afternoon session and a 40 minute evening session. As well as 3 guided outings. Groups are small and class is personalised so I really get to know you and your practice.
For the nature lovers, mornings after yoga and breakfast are spent exploring the beaches, cliffs, forests and hill of County Clare.
For the foodies,
County Clare seems to specialise in eclectic combinations: lobster bisque, lebanese flatbreads with lamb and mint raitas, local cheeses, honeys, and a dessert table to greet you as you come in the door. Good thing for all the hiking and Yoga!
Yoga, Somatics & meditation
This retreat is a special opportunity to spend a 6-night yoga teachers retreat with Lisa in an intimate setting of only 18 teachers.
Lisa teaches Hatha yoga and also incorporates Somatics into her teaching. Somatics is a mind body approach to improve our health and well-being naturally. Through the use of easy, relaxing, gentle movements, somatic exercises teach you to use your brain to change your muscles.
This retreat will include asana, vinyasa, somatic inquiry, breathwork, meditation, and yoga Nidra.
There will also be short lectures using kinaesthetic/visual material (PowerPoint, anatomical models, and other avenues) to help you embody yourself in new ways.

Enjoy newly built en-suite bedrooms are all very spacious, very bright with a large triple glazed window, super insulated so they are warm in Winter and cool in Summer, underfloor heating, and excellent sound proofing

What others say
The retreat centre is beautiful, clean, welcoming and in a quiet place in nature. With lovely food and walks. The yoga room feels spacious and light with amazing views.
Lisa is a wonderful teacher. She meets everyone as and where they are in a way that makes you feel seen, accepted and save. She embodies the yoga and somatics practices with joy, playfulness and a world of knowledge. Being at the retreat felt like coming home to my practice as a teacher and a student. I arrived exhausted and departed refreshed, inspired and centred.
Carrie Schriemer ● Social Worker, Yoga Therapis
My time in Burren with Lisa was a treat as Lisas integrity, clarity and down to earth approach to yoga and somatics made every practise session a welcoming home. Staying in the same place as the yoga and the hiking in nature to complement and to absorb the teaching was a great experience. I also enjoyed talking to the other teachers at the retreat around the table and out on excursions.
