Instructor Bio Tristan Dorling
I first began the practice of yoga in 1985 at school when I was 16 years old.
At the age of 19 I travelled to the Himalayas to live in a Mahayana Buddhist monastery.
This was really my first introduction to the higher teachings and to the spiritual life. I had my first awakening experience a year later after a meditation retreat in a Buddhist cave monastery in Thailand and experienced the awakening of kundalini the following year in 1991.
Over the next 17 years I continued to study Buddhist meditation and yoga and I travelled to Nepal, Sri Lanka and especially India as often as possible to continue the study and practice of yoga in various ashrams and monasteries.
I started teaching yoga and meditation in 2006. I qualified as a yoga teacher from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta ashram in Kerala, India.
Some of the most influential teachers in my life have been Amritanandamayi (Amma), Ajhan Amaro, Ajahn Succito, Maharaj, Tapkay Lama and Yogani.
The yoga I teach is integral, incorporating a full spectrum of techniques and my focus is as much about purification, and self-realization as about fitness and flexibility.

Let go and tune inwards with TristanI just wanted to thank you deeply for everything you taught me, in words and in conduct. Our time in Ireland was unforgettable, and a real leap forward in my realisation…. Cal UK
Who this AYP Integral yoga and meditation retreat is suitable for
This course is suitable for complete beginners as well as advanced people.
What is AYP yoga?
AYP (Advanced Yoga Practices) is a system of yoga which integrates all of yoga’s different aspects. Deep Meditation practice is at the core of the yoga along with advanced pranayama techniques for the purification of the body. Other practices include posture practice (asanas), samyama, mudras and bandhas.
The purification of the body at the subtle level brings the practitioner into an ecstatic state of living. It also creates a sense of peace and bliss which are the cornerstones for the realization of unity and divine love, the real fruits of yoga.Thank you for the weekend. It was wonderful. I so appreciated all your discourses. It was a very special group and I loved meeting such great women…. Catherine Ireland
Many people ask if they are ready to take on a full-scope yoga practice. The truth is that anyone who feels ready and has the desire to take these practices on can do so. The techniques are not difficult to learn, all we need is the desire and dedication to learn them and allow them to transform our lives.
All of the AYP practices are explained in detail in over 400 lessons on the AYP Plus site.
Guided outings into Nature
On Saturday and on Sunday 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. All these activities are optional.
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.
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.
The Burren is famous for it’s wild flowers, and it is lovely to see wild orchids during the months from May to September.
Most people come on their own so it’s a great way to connect with like minded people and also make new buddies.
Amazing vegetarian food
Paddi the food genius will be feeding us amazing vegetarian food and if you have ever wondered what it would be like to be on a weekend veggie retreat rest assured you will be pleasantly surprised and may even get hooked! She has a brilliant reputation for preparing vegetarian food to the highest standard.
Each evening Paddi the cook who has been preparing amazing vegetarian food at Burren Yoga for over 12 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 social aspect of these retreats where you meet like-minded people is a great fun element of the retreat.
