Relaxation weekend getaway break in a fitness spa resort and weight loss and stress reduction course ideal for a singles weekend getaway
The weekend and week-long yoga and meditation retreats at Burren Yoga are ideal if you would like a relaxation weekend or are even looking for a singles weekend getaway where you will be comfortable being on your own as over 90% of all our guests come on their own.
Book Yoga Retreats
Always best to directly Book Yoga Retreats
with the yoga centre itself, so you can get individual attention and advice.
The relaxation effects of yoga and meditation are suitable for everybody, whether you are looking for a stress management course , or are simply looking for a healthy weekend break away from your usual everyday life.
The difference between these weekend and week-long retreats and the usual spa resort break is that instead of being simply pampered for the weekend, you will learn techniques that you can practice on your own at home to relieve stress, let go of thoughts and also chill out and relax.

Relaxation weekend getaways
The Burren Yoga Relaxation retreats are like stepping into a different world where you spend time with like-minded people, experience inspiring yoga and meditation classes with the most gifted teachers that Dave has hand-picked and leave all your cares and worries behind as you enjoy these health and wellbeing weekends
These are ideal chill out weekends and have a much deeper effect than spending time on a health farm , as you bring the techniques home with you so you can practice on an ongoing basis.
Weight loss programme
The other side effect of taking on a short daily practice of yoga after you leave the retreat is that you gradually begin to lose weight and your awareness of healthy eating also begins to take effect. Weight loss is not a goal of yoga… but rather a side effect of doing the practices each day. One of the keys is to begin slowly so that you really enjoy your 10 to 20 minutes each day, and Dave will give you tips and pointers on practices that will help you personally.
Irish weekend break
The Burren Yoga Centre is located in beautiful peaceful surroundings at the foot of the Burren hills on the West coast of Ireland. These weekend breaks in Ireland take place all year round and are suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness.
Spa Breaks Ireland
Many people who have been to numerous spa breaks in Ireland and who have been to Burren Yoga have said that the quality of the yoga and meditation teaching and the empowerment they have experienced as a result of learning the practices and bringing them home, has made their stay here much more transformational and longer lasting than their spa breaks and other retreats at health farms.
Dave who runs Burren Yoga believes that it is very important to empower guests so that they do not feel they need to see a therapist in order to let go and relax, and instead are able to put the teachings and techniques into practice each day of their lives after the retreat.
One of the keys to wellbeing is empowerment. And you will certainly feel empowered after attending one of the quality yoga and meditation retreats at Burren Yoga. Each person is treated with respect for where they are at in life and no comparison is made between people. Many people who attend our yoga retreats have never practiced yoga or meditation before, and our hand-picked team of highly experienced teachers will teach you practices which are suitable for your level of fitness and experience even if you are a complete beginner.
These health and wellbeing weekends are also good fun, and the vegetarian food is amazing. Paddi our chef who has been with us since 2001 used to run a very well known restaurant “Seventh Heaven” in Galway city for over 12 years.
Fitness Spa Resort
A very enjoyable way of getting fit is to start slowly by incorporating enjoyable yoga practices into your daily life. During your yoga retreat you will learn many practices which are ideal for improving fitness, and the combination of healthy enjoyable food, guided outings and quality teaching makes Burren Yoga quality as one of the best Fitness Spa Resorts in the world.
It is important to note that you will not be pampered when you come here, and instead will be encouraged to stand on your own two feet, and to practice the yoga and meditation techniques yourself which will leave you empowered to continue your own fitness transformation every day of your life after the retreat.
Detox weekend and Health Farm
All the food is vegetarian. However it is also of restaurant standards and there is no shortage of very tasty and healthy food.
You can request and special diet on your booking form, and Paddi is happy to prepare special meals for each person which can include wheat, gluten and sugar free, or whatever diet that you prefer.
Whereas the food on most Health Farms can be quite meagre, and one often feels hungry while on a health form, the food philosophy at Buren Yoga is that it is very healthy and tasty, and everybody is free to use their own will power to say no to seconds or to choose to eat one course instead of more.
The daily yoga classes combined with the guided outings combined with healthy eating is a great way to bring gradual change into your daily life and to continue this on an ongoing basis yourself, rather than starving on a health farm and then binging when one returns home.
Singles weekend getaway
These retreats are ideal singles weekend getaways as over 90% of the guests come on their own. There is no contrived coming together of singles, but rather it just so happens that people come on their own. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and relaxed and is a great way to meet new people and many people make friends that they stay in contact with over many years.
Dave Brocklebank has been described by many as the best and most experienced meditation teacher in Ireland. He has been practicing since the 70’s and has hand-picked a team of 16 of the best yoga and meditation teachers. These retreats are ideal meditation courses, and the best way to learn how to meditate and then to keep it up on a daily basis after your Meditation course.
Dave also has a Meditation CD
which talks you through the practice each day for a month….. and then the 2nd track talks your through your practice each day for the 2nd month …and so on to the 4th track. At the end of 6 months, one leaves aside the CD and continues the practice oneself.
