    • Instructor Bio Cathy Pearson

      Cathy Pearson yoga

      Cathy Pearson has been practicing meditation for over 20 years and has studied various types of yoga over the years which gives her a great repertoire to choose from when teaching her students.

      Her Vinyasa Yoga classes emphasize a deep connection with the breath, clarity and stillness of the mind, strength, balance, a graceful flow of moving mediation with the exploration of consciousness.

      Cathy – I offer many “modifications” in my classes; this basically means that one posture can be practiced in several different ways from total beginners to seasoned practitioners.

      Vinyasa retreat weekend

       

      On Saturday after breakfast, Dave will lead the group on a guided outing and we will either do a hill walk in the Burren hills or a walk by the sea.

       

      Burren Hillwalking holiday

       

      These guided outings are an important part of each eco yoga retreat and it is a lovely way to see some special places in the Burren well away from the usual tourist places.

       

      Hidden forest walk in Burren

       

      The secret forest has been described by one visitor as the type of place that fairies and elves live, and when they heard us coming they hid out of sight, but did not have time to take away their fairy veils and magic feelings which fill the air.

       

      During our guided outing we stop off for lunch at one of the best local restaurants or cafes.  One favourite is the Ballyvaughan tea rooms where Stephen Spielberg flew in especially to order the cheese cake.

       

      residential yoga weekend

       

      During May there are plenty of wild flowers including the early purple orchid.

      The pranayama technique of Nadi Shodhana , (alternate nostril breathing)  a powerful method of balancing Ida and Pingala or our solar and lunar energies, will also be explored.

      Nadi Shodhana , (alternate nostril breathing) is a lovely way to balance your energies leaving you feel calm, relaxed and peaceful.

       

      Vinyasa yoga meditation workshop

       

      Each day will conclude with an extended guided meditation to leave you feeling centered, rejuvenated and revitalised.

      On the first evening of each retreat, following a slow flow restorative session to unwind fully, Cathy will be guide you into a very special Yoga Nidra, or psychic sleep.

       

      This is a technique used to reach an altered state of conscious between the dream state and wakefulness. The body becomes very receptive to healing energies and very deep relaxation is induced.

      On Friday and Saturday evening Paddi the cook who has been preparing amazing vegetarian food at Burren Yoga for over 11 years will prepare a delicious vegetarian dinner.

      If this is your first time to come to Burren Yoga, please be reassured you will not go hungry…. just read the reviews 😉

       

      The following two days will have a more dynamic approach to the Vinyasa yoga offered, Pranayama & meditation will also be included.

       

      Cathy has spent years teaching very mixed level classes so if you are new to yoga you will get as much out this weekend as if you were a dedicated yogi.

      Resting in child’s pose and knowing when to take breaks is also an important part of yoga practice.
