NEW YEARS ESCAPE
Avon Ri, Blessington, Ireland
13th - 15th January 2017
What we offer...
Take time for you after the busy Christmas season to get active and retreat to this mystical Lakeshore resort in Co. Wicklow. Over the weekend, we will learn techniques from 3 different styles of yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra which will leave you feeling revitalized and serene. These sessions will give you time to listen to your body, your breath and also stimulate movement creating heat in the colder Winter months.
We will also spend some time outdoors with a guided tranquil walk along the Blessington Greenway to Russborough House and Parklands. This walk is a 13km round trip, but can be altered if needed. On return from our walk, we will have options to use the leisure facilities which include indoor heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, or to simply relax and enjoy the resort.
To finish our stay, we have included a complimentary sail on the lake. (Weather permitting) This will give us the opportunity to float away and to set our intentions for the new year to follow.
