Relax, Restore & Rediscover Yourself ...
Relax, Restore & Rediscover Yourself
in the Light of Yoga, the Sacred Elements and Mystical Ireland.
Our intention during this Elemental Yoga™ retreat is to connect lovingly with ourselves, and with the land.
The ancient Celts lived a rich life, filled with wisdom gained from profound connections with the natural world.
If we forget our connection with the land, we lose our ability to navigate our own landscape.
Through Elemental Yoga™, the Sacred Elements (Air, Water, Fire & Earth) and the magic of Ireland we will connect deeply with the land to relax, restore and rediscover ourselves.
Connect with the Land ...
Ireland is a place of mystery!
Often called one of the most fascinating lands in Europe, everyone who visits Ireland is deeply touched in the most astonishing ways, by the landscape, the sacred sites, the heart of the people, and their traditions.
The Irish landscape is stunningly beautiful and diverse.
From lovely fields blanketed in wild flowers dotted with castles, to towering cliffs defying the rough oceans surrounding the Emerald Isle, there really is nothing quite like the dramatic Irish landscape.
The sacred sites are some of the most powerful places on the planet and you can find them everywhere you turn.
There are over 1,200 huge stone monuments some of which are older than the pyramids.
Ancient sacred mounds, dolmens, monasteries, ancient holy wells, celtic crosses and circles of energy decorate the rolling green hills.
These are symbols of devotion to the land, its energy and its people.
We will travel to the majestic Cliffs of Moher and The Burren during our retreat.
Immerse yourself in this land of mystery,
The mystic essence & beauty of the Emerald Isle will stir your Soul.
Ireland is wild but welcoming!
Come with us to mystical Ireland!
The 8-day experience with Maria was beyond anything I could have imagined. There was an intimate connection with all the four elements that I had never experienced before. Maria helped me deeply connect with my inner wisdom and allowed me to truly show up in my truth as she so beautifully embodies being a wise, compassionate, loving human being.
The entire experience was one magical moment after another. Volumes upon volumes can be written about the amount of Divine messages, synchronicities, healings and epiphanies that happened in such a short time frame. I am truly Blessed to have been guided to take this journey with Maria as I 100% know that her essence brought something inexplicably unique and powerful into the program.

Elemental Yoga ™
Elemental Yoga™, is a gentle yet powerful practice open to students of all levels.
It weaves together gentle Yoga with the wisdom of the Four Sacred Elements.
This beautiful practice brings forth the awareness that we are of the Earth, like everything else created from the Four Sacred Elements of Air, Water, Fire, and Earth.
Carl Sagan said, “We’re made of star stuff”… as above, so below.
When we restore our connection with the nature of who we are, we understand that everything around us is interconnected.
Modern life removed us from our true connection with Nature and therefore we feel that the environment is separate… outside of us. This has lead us to pollute and destroy the environment.
The survival of our species depends on a return to an intimate relationship with Nature.
In the pursuit of that intimacy, we realize that Nature’s ebb and flow influences how we feel about ourselves. And how we feel about ourselves will affect our environment.
We begin caring more, protecting the Earth and bringing hope to the future of humanity.
The true meaning of Yoga, which means union, will be realized.
"Elemental Yoga™ is a revolution to awaken our relationship
with our “nature self” and our place in the Universe."
