‘Nourish yourself through Nature: A Yoga Escape with Clare and Orla’


Retreat to the tranquil setting of The Elbow Room Escape located in the Foothills of Lugnaquilla to invite a sense of authentic restoration and rejuvenation to your body and mind. Sometimes, in the rush of modern life, we can get a little disconnected

from who we truly are. Through careful planning and consideration Clare and Orla wish to provide you with the opportunity to escape to the simplicity of nature and allow it to restore you as you reconnect with who you are.

Find the space to relax and revitalise as we immerse ourselves in this invaluable opportunity to engage in self-care. Over the course of the weekend we will seek to re-align the body and mind in order to leave us feeling a little lighter and a little more open when we part ways on Sunday afternoon.

Throughout the weekend we will find a balance between practicing the ancient tradition of yoga in the beautifully cosy studio on site, exploring the great outdoors and nourishing ourselves with healthy and locally sourced produce.

Learn to find peace within as the surrounding nature, nourishment and mindful movement helps us to reset and restore.

“you must want to spend the rest of your life with yourself first”

Introduced to yoga many years ago, she has always been interested in the physical and mental benefits of the practice, strengthening muscle tone, increasing flexibility,

encouraging body awareness and calming a busy mind. Clare has over 500 hrs of certified teacher training and enjoys teaching a number of styles including strong flow and more restorative classes. Her training began with the Samadhi School of Yoga under Greg Walsh and really enjoyed completing advanced teacher training which included Yin Yoga training with Josh Summers, pranayama training with Marianne Jacuzzi, restorative with Sophia Pallaro and hands on anatomy training
