    • Instructor Bio David Muehsam

      Easter yoga retreat Ireland

      David Muehsam is an amazing yoga teacher. He has a breadth and a depth to his yoga experience like few other yoga teachers in the world.

      Although he has practised very advanced physical practices himself, he can make his teaching so flexible that the oldest complete beginner in the class and the young fit yoga enthusiast with many years of practice will each find themselves practising at their own levels, each expanding their own boundaries and each learning to become present and at peace with themselves…. all in a loving, enjoyable and fun way.

      David is a one of a handful of teachers worldwide to be given authorisation directly from Pattabhi Jois, (Guru of Ashtanga Yoga ).

      He has tremendous experience and is widely regarded as one of the best yoga teachers to visit Ireland.

      David is an extremely highly qualified yoga teacher with a huge background in Iyengar and Ashtanga and he deepens the practice by including many inner techniques of Swami Satyananda Saraswati.

      Part of David’s philosophy is that a teacher should not plan exactly what to teach each student, until the teacher meets each student individually and see what is appropriate for that person at that particular time.

      Having said that, if you are a well practiced Ashtangi or Iyengar practitioner, this is an unusual opportunity to work with a very experienced teacher who will take you deeper into your practice in an advanced way.

      David is a one of a handful of teachers worldwide to be given authorisation directly from Pattabhi Jois, (Guru of Ashtanga Yoga ).

      For those who are more accomplished, David will help them develop and expand their physical practice while guiding them deeply inwards using more subtle techniques to get in touch with internal energies.

      For people with only a little yoga experience David will gently guide them at a level suitable for their bodies and limitations.

      More advanced practitioners will receive individual guidance from David suitable to their level of practice.

      This course is for people who wish to work with their physical body and who wish to deepen their internal work through pranayama, mudra and bandha.

      As usual on our eco yoga retreats, each day Dave will take the group out on a guided outing into the Burren hills or by the sea. This is a great way to get to see some special places in the Burren well away from the usual tourist places.

      A very big part of our eco yoga retreats are the daily guided outings, and these can include hill walks, walks by the sea, boat trips to see the Cliffs of Moher or the Aran Islands, surfing, kayaking and much more.

      You can read more at daily guided outings and activities.

       

       

      There is a full timetable of activities each day and most people come along as it is such good fun being with the group on our outdoor adventures.

      However if you wish to take some time on your own, you are very welcome to stay at the yoga centre and put your feet up, while the rest of the group heads off on their outdoor adventure.

       

      July Eco Yoga Retreat on the west coast of Ireland

      On this July retreat we will practice with an eye towards deepening the experience of yoga, finding a personal relationship with the practices of yoga.

       

      yoga intensive teacher training

       

      We’ll do full practices of yoga postures, and develop the pranayama exercises with an eye towards tailoring these practices towards each individual’s needs and experience. We will have pranayama and meditation each morning before the asana practice.

      As we practice, we will explore the internal processes of bandha, and the natural balance of energy that comes when the postures and breath work together in harmony. Drawing on the Ashtanga and Iyengar systems as a starting point, we will explore the variations in techniques and sequence that lead each of us to creating a truly personal practice that is safe, fulfilling and fun.

       

      yoga props teacher training

       

      We will see that the bandha is the place where the body meets the breath, or the material meets the Spirit, and practice ways of experiencing and using the bandhas from the perspective of Vinyasa or breath/movement, and internal action in each posture, or asana techniques.

      We will also take the opportunity to explore the world of mudras, both in terms of the literal practice of mudras in yoga, and metaphorically, through the poses and practices of yoga. When practiced mindfully, the poses themselves become mudras, opening like flowers that allow the heart and mind to settle into the natural unfolding through yoga.

       

      Easter yoga retreat Ireland

       

       

      We will run several of the afternoon classes as workshops, practicing aspects of yoga such as the breath and bandhas, back bending, inversions, etc, in more detail, with a goal towards applying this information right away in our practices.

      For accomplished practitioners, this workshop will be an opportunity to deepen one’s practice, with guidance for progressing into more advanced postures and sequences.

      For less experienced students, this week will offer the opportunity to develop as sound foundation for future practice, understand the principle of Hatha Yoga more clearly, and deepen one’s ability to do sustained self-practice.

       

      easter meditation retreat

       

      Each evening Paddi who used to run Seventh Heaven restaurant for over 12 years, prepares a delicious vegetarian dinner and many people have said they have not eaten vegetarian food as good as this at any restaurant.

       

      Vegetarian meals

       

      This July eco yoga retreat with the gifted David Muehsam and guided outings each day to see special places in the Burren is a great way to step out of your everyday life, leave all your cares behind and step into another world of uplifting and positive experiences.

      It’s a great way to meet like minded people, as most people come on their own, and there is a very relaxed and easy going atmosphere and plenty of fun and laughing 😉

      It’s also a great opportunity for anybody of all ages and all levels of fitness, to learn from a talented teacher techniques to improve your physical yoga practice and also practices in order to get in touch with your Self.
