Good things and bad things about Health Spa’s and Health Farm holidays
Spa’s and Health Farms often pamper you a little bit too much so that you don’t really change after being there for the weekend
Ok it’s a great weekend and you feel great. But all in all, your life continues on in much the same way on Monday after the weekend, as where you left on on Friday before heading away.
Yoga courses sometimes can be an inspiration to change one’s life.
The course instructors are highly qualified and come from all over the world.
The centre is well known among Irish Yoga practitioners and most Yoga teachers in the country know about it and many have commented on its excellence and inspiration it brings to others.
The accommodation at the centre is in rooms of 2, 4 or 6 people sharing. There are 3 single rooms and 1 double room. There are also local B&B’s and a hotel. More details Accommodation at the centre

Please be aware that there are many different forms of yoga and some of these may not be what you are looking for.
If you are considering a break or a health farm farm weekend, why not consider a yoga weekend which will work much deeper and have longer lasting effects.
If you would like a gentle start, and you may not be as young as you would like to be, or as fit as you could be then possibly you should consider an introduction to Satyananda yoga. This form places the emphasis on inner awareness, and includes breathing practices, physical postures and relaxation techniques and also meditation.
If you are under 40 and are quite fit already, or if you would like to experience a stronger more dynamic form of yoga, and are more interested in the physical benefits such as flexibility and toning rather than the more meditative aspects of Yoga then maybe you should try Asthanga or Iyengar.
Asthanga is a strong physical form of yoga and is quite vigorous and gives the body an excellent physical workout.
Iyengar yoga is also quite strong but not as dynamic as Asthanga. It is also good for flexibility, improving strength and toning.
If you are not sure which one would be most appropriate for you why not ask Dave Brocklebank who is a Satyananda yoga teacher and runs the centre.

Please e-mail any of your friends and let them know about this website. They may want to go with you on one of the weekends if they knew about the centre.
