Pictures From Our Last Retreat
Join Mary O'Toole for a week-long yoga retreat in Ireland, August 25-31 or September 8- 14, 2014.
Come and enjoy a week of self care, gentle yoga, delicious food and quality time in nature. This is a great opportunity to really unplug, take yourself out of your daily life and immerse yourself into your yoga practice. Imagine waking up everyday to the fresh smell of the ocean and starting your day with a gentle, loving, nurturing yoga class with Mary O'Toole.
Mary started her own yoga practice in 2004 at a time of personal challenge and stress. A regular yoga practice helped her cope with stress, overcome anxiety and create a healthy balance in her life. After a month of yoga she noticed she craved healthy foods and for the first time in her life started to lose weight effortlessly and keep it off.
Mary is offering two daily yoga classes on these retreats (except the days of tours). Mary enjoys teaching a deep meditative yoga practice and connecting you to each pose from the inside out. Each class is unique, soothing and your stress becomes a thing of the past.
On these retreats Mary is combining her love for nature and her passion for yoga to give you the most relaxing, healing and nurturing experience.
These retreats are held in Ceantar na nOilean, Connemara, Ireland, Mary's hometown. You will also have the opportunity to learn Irish, hear some traditional music with some amazing local musicians and try some Irish dancing.
Mary had the honor of leading her first yoga retreat in her hometown last September.

Where: The retreat will be held in Ceantar na nOilean, Connemara. Ceantar na nOilean is a group of islands situated between Kilkerin Bay and Greatmans Bay 56km (35 miles) west of Galway City.
The main islands are Eanach Mheain, Leitir Moir, Garumna and Leitir Meallain. Access to the islands is by a chain of bridges and causeways, which were built at the end of the last century. This beautiful, scenic area is a part of the Connemara Gaeltacht and Irish is the spoken language.
These islands lie off the main tourist trail and therefore are still unspoiled and relatively unexplored. Among their many attractions are clean beaches, scenic walks, peace and quiet. Wherever you are on the islands, you are never far from the sea. Why not come and see for yourself?
August and September are a beautiful time of year in Ireland. The days are long, the place is quiet and the energy is amazing.
These retreats will offer daily yoga and meditation classes, time for reflection, fun events and visits to spiritual and historical sites.

What Are People Saying About The Retreat
The trip to Ireland was simply amazing. It was incredible for so many reasons. The breathtaking scenery, the relaxation supplied by both the region itself and Mary's great yoga classes, but most of all I will remember this trip so fondly because of the people. Everyone there was so friendly and accommodating towards us that they were truly the most memorable part of the trip. If you have the chance visit Connemara. - David
