Moving with Grace

Autumn Day Retreat

The Brehon Hotel, Killarney,
on Sunday, September 24th from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Graceful Surrender into Fall

Join us in The Brehon Hotel in Killarney on Sunday, September 24th for a unique opportunity to cultivate both effort and effortlessness in your practice, as we embody the qualities of Sukha and Sthira. Through conscious movement, breath work, and meditation, we will explore the balance between strength and ease, creating a sense of harmony and grace in our bodies and minds.

Embracing a slow, focused & organic approach to our practice, conserving energies, and nourishing our inner resources. Kathryn and Carmel will guide you through a morning and afternoon session incorporating yin-yang sequences, breathwork, and meditation techniques, allowing you to deepen your practice and connect with your inner self.

Why do we do this? 

It is the time when leaves fall to the earth and a time of refinement for us. Just as trees are drawing in and letting go of their leaves, it is time for us to let go and surrender to that what no longer serves us.

A time to nourish our Yin side after the Yang expansiveness of Summer, as the leaves fall to nourish the  Earth, to the Yin contraction of Winter.

With supporting practices to guide this transition and a chance to slow down, reflect and introspect.

Join us for a day of self-care and transformation, as we move with grace and embrace the beauty of the Autumn season.

Chair/Therapy Yoga - 14th September @ 9:45 a.m.

Chair/Therapy Yoga is a moderate exercise that promotes flexibility and strength, and is suitable for all, especially people with limited/restricted mobility or those wanting a gentler pace class and who want to do something about their health and well-being, but cannot, for various reasons, sit on a yoga mat for any length of time.

Classes begin with a warm-up through breathing, stretching, and mobility exercises, and continue with guided movements for each part of the body, using props if necessary with most of the class done seated on a chair. Benefits include improved circulation, increased mobility, improved digestion and enhances brain function. Students are always advised to work at their own pace.

Chair yoga is an open-level class and is suitable for all.

Yin Yoga - 13th September @ 8:00 p.m.

Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s a slower and more meditative class, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body.

Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in traditional styles of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.

Energetically by stretching and deepening into the connective tissue, we’re opening up any blockages and releasing energy Qi ( vital energy) to restore healthy flow. All poses are done seated and poses are typically held for longer to access deeper tissues. The class also focuses on meditation to enhance overall holistic health. The class is open to all levels and can be done after eating and wearing your comfiest PJs!

Dynamic Flow - 13th September @ 6:00 p.m.

Dynamic Flow is a flow class sequencing poses in an instructive and informed way, linking breath and movement with particular attention to functional alignment using alternative ways to explore and enhance posture, flexibility, and mobility.

The class will include both seated and standing poses and some props will be used.

The class includes the fundamentals of breath work and meditation to deepen one’s practice. Level 1-2.
