Funding World Class Yoga Centre

Project description

The project is to build a world class Yoga and Meditation Retreat Centre on the same grounds as the already successful Burren Yoga Centre.

The time is NOW

We have raised €30,000 over the past month by your commitments to invest in helping us build the new state of the art yoga centre.

As a result, we have been given a further 6 weeks until 24th January to raise the remaining money needed.

Help us and yourself, by making an investment in Burren Yoga to build this new centre.


How this works;

  • You lend us between €1,000 and €10,000 for 5 years
  • We give you 3% interest financially each year or 5% yearly in retreats
  • At end of 5 years, we return your investment money and also give you an opportunity to invest for a further 5 years if you prefer

Galway Rural Development  (GRD) latest deadline date is 24th January 2014

Is your investment money safe?

Dave Brocklebank will give his personal guarantee to you that he will repay your investment money no matter what the circumstances.  This is not like investing in a Limited company which could possibly fold and walk away.  This is a personal guarantee from Dave himself.

This is a closing Door of Opportunity

It is the culmination of 5 years work that Dave Brocklebank has put into his vision to build a new World Class Yoga Centre on the same grounds as the currently very successful Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre.

Dave has already spent €60,000 of his own savings on this project to pay for architects and engineers fees, planning permission surveys, testing, and investigation to ensure the build is protective of the fragile Burren, fire cert fees and much more.

He is also investing his life’s savings of €100,000 into this project.

This is action based upon correct thinking, and also based on many years of work leading up to this stage of the project.

You gain by each yearly interest of 3% and by knowing you are helping us.

We gain by being able to start building the new state of the art yoga centre.

Everybody gains by having this beautiful yoga centre with en-suite bedrooms and all the other features.

Let’s build this amazing centre together !

We need your Action now to decide to invest, make your pledge to invest on the application form below, and help us to move forward to secure the loan from the bank and the grant from GRD to build this World Class Yoga Centre.

After 24th January 2014, Galway Rural Development  will have allocated the last of it’s funding which was allocated for the years 2009 – 2013.   After this date passes, it is unknown when further funding will be made available from the EEC.   The last time this happened previously in 2008, it took almost 2 years before further funding was made available.

This is the urgency that we have in order to raise the remaining €70,000 further funding needed in order for GRD to approve our application which was lodged with them in 2012.

The project to build the new Burren Yoga Centre building had been proceeding full steam ahead and then the credit crunch happened.

Now the bank have decreased the amount they will lend us, so I am seeking to fund the shortfall from the yoga community… and from individuals interested in Socially Responsible Investment.
