The ethos of the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre is to provide the best quality yoga and meditation teaching within a responsible Ecotourism holiday retreat package in The Burren where we spend time in Nature and the whole package follows the principles of conservation of the environment and sustainability of the Burren.
Educating about green principles (to our guests, staff, suppliers and business colleagues) and also improving the well being of local people and also the local economy is important to us.
We are committed to environmental good practice and related principles including the Geopark Sustainable Code of Practice for Tourism which has helped us to monitor and continually improve our impacts on the environment.
We are involved as active members of Burren Ecotourism Network and work together to adhere to and promote sustainable practices to ensure economic, social and environmental benefits for local communities, visitors and the region itself.
Environmental protection throughout the complete lifecycle of our business
We have implemented a comprehensive strategy to protect the environment throughout the complete lifecycle of our business;
- starting with the concept of the whole business
- the nature of how we designed the buildings
- how we run all aspects of our business
- right through to continually monitoring and upgrading our standards and raising the awareness of our staff and guests through education and exposure to the principles of conservation.
Prevention is better than cure. Positive contribution can be inspiring.
Our strategy is to prevent damage through planning and design and also to make contributions to the well-being of local people and also the local economy.
Minimise, Reuse & Recycle
And where we can’t prevent an impact to the environment, we minimise the use of resources, we reuse as much as possible, and continue to improve our environmental systems each year.
Educate, Inspire and Continually improve
We are committed to continually improve our care for the environment, and hope that this will inspire everyone who comes in contact with us.
Knowing that you are supporting an Environmentally Friendly retreat centre, gives us all a good feeling
We look forward to welcoming you here on one of our retreats very soon.
