Weekend Wellness & Well-being Retreat 16th-18th August 2024

Ready to nourish yourself from the inside out?

Come join the Weekend Wellness & Well-being Retreat in the Emerald Isle and you will experience a magical weekend of learning, healing and connection, gathering your energy to support you through the Autumn and beyond into the Winter months. Together we will explore how to nourish our hearts, minds and bodies on and off our yoga mats, in an eco-conscious countryside sanctuary, with gourmet vegetarian menus and like-minded company... 

Many of us carve out time in our busy lives to go to a yoga class for a few hours during our week. Imagine immersing yourself wholeheartedly for a few days in getting to know yourself and learning to carry this wisdom from your mats into your everyday lives...

There will be four sessions of yoga integrating Dynamic, Deep Stretch, Chakra Rebalancing and Anahata Agni Hotra, complemented with tools from diverse healing arts including Emotional Freedom Technique, Matrix Re-imprinting Therapy and Thai Yoga massage and many more.... ALL LEVELS WELCOME and anyone willing to come along and give it a go!

Your Home For The Weekend

Let your every need be taken care of in the heart of the mystical, lush Irish countryside, a magical oasis of peace and tranquillity, where you can seek solace, tune into the natural rhythms of nature and awaken the healing energies within you.

Over 100 years old, restored and reborn from the ashes, Anam Croi healing centre, meaning 'Soul Heart', is located upon crystal and copper gridlines at the foot of the majestic Croagh Patrick, the sacred mountain that watches over your beautiful home and sanctuary for the weekend.

With sustainability and eco conscious living at the heart and soul of this healing centre, this is the perfect setting for a Summer retreat, reminding us of our own connection to sustainability and conscious living in our true authentic selves and the expression of that symbiotically with the world around us. 

Venture outdoors, take a walk along the wildflower and rose garden nestled among the ancient trees, spend some time contemplating by the cascading waterfall or peaceful pond or simply chillout within the grounds and soak in the breathtaking sights and sounds of the surrounding landscape. Immerse yourself in a Finnish Sauna and Ice bath experience or visit Anam Croi shop and explore the esoteric delights on offer!


Nestled within the serene and tranquil countryside, Anam Croi house offers unique accomodation. With eco conscious living at the heart, the accommodation is simple, cosy and comfortable. All rooms are furnished with natural fabrics. All floor coverings are 100% plant based, including corn silk, and flax with cork and linseed, creating an atmopshere of connection and harmony with nature. Each room has underfloor heating to create a warm inviting ambiance throughout your stay.

In the main house, there are four twin bedrooms for two people sharing, two of which have pebble floor shower rooms adjoining.

Outside in the peace garden beside the pond and rockery waterfall, there are six single bedrooms exclusively private to you, each with vibrantly coloured exterior in its own signature chakra colour, outdoor seating and a pathway to the surrounding gardens.

The showers are all supplied by saved rainwater from the roof tanks which are heated by the same system as the under floor heating.


At Anam Croi house, nourishment is an essential part of the healing and wellness journey. Enjoy the gastronomical delights sourced directly from their own organic vegetable garden and beehives. From the garden to the table, each meal is prepared with love, creativity and a deep respect for the gifts bestowed by nature.

The first meal of your day takes breakfast to a new level, with a selection of hot and cold delicacies, for example fresh fruit juice, fresh berries and compote as well as fresh eggs from their chickens and sweet golden nectar from their freely roaming bees.

During the afternoon, lunch will be served, followed by a wholesome vegetarian dinner after yoga in the evening.

A selection of herbal teas using the abundance of herbs harvested from their own gardens and snacks are available throughout the day.

Join Geraldine, an integrative holistic physiotherapist and experienced senior Radiant Hand yoga teacher who explored yoga originally as a means to support her well being.

Following the path of yoga has opened up a cornucopia of doors for Geraldine and transformed her way of seeing and living life, enabling her to meld physiotherapy and yoga and create a unique approach to healing, including Thai yoga massage, Emotional Freedom Techniques or tapping and matrix re-imprinting, muscle testing, access bars and other esoteric healing tools...

Geraldine will share her passion for life, love of healing in all its forms and her joy in sharing and passing on the knowledge and experience she has gleaned in her life so far through the teachings of her lineage. Her infectious sense of joy and laughter coupled with her sensitive intuitive nature ensure you will be taken care of throughout the weekend and guided through an exploration of how to nourish our hearts, minds and bodies with a careful blend of mindfulness practices, contemplative experiences and plenty of opportunites for self discovery and seeking the answers within.

Geraldine will teach 4 yoga classes of 90-120 minutes over the weekend; 1 on Friday evening, 2 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday morning. Classes will integrate Dynamic, Deep Stretch, Chakra Rebalancing and Anahata Agni Hotra, complemented with tools from diverse healing arts. ALL LEVELS WELCOME and anyone willing to come along and give it a go!

Yoga classes will be taught in a stunning studio, flooded with natural light in the day and lit up by night, the perfect environment to practise. The studio is fully equipped with mats, blocks, bolsters, straps etc. You are welcome to bring your own mat and blankets if you wish.

This envionmentally friendly centre is designed to embrace and amplify the divine light, consciouness and angelic spirit. The intuitively restored studio with its added dimension of a hexagon skylight, symbolising divine power, wisdom, love, connection and creation is humbly supported by the free roaming bees, whose soul mission is to teach us about sacred geometry and spread heart healing to all through the angelic vibration. 

Activities & Excursions

Awaken each morning to the serene beauty of the Peace garden surrounding your sanctuary. Spend meditative tranquil afternoons in the gardens, by the rockery waterfall or following the stream  from the upper peaceful pond to the lower one at the bottom of the garden surrounded by wildflowers. If you prefer to stay indoors, there are comfortable, homely communal lounge areas, perfect for curling up with a book and/or connecting with others or seek solace in your room and enjoy an afternoon nap. As the afternoon turns to evening, take advantage of glorious sunsets with the backdrop of the majestic beauty of Croagh Patrick, snuggled up by a roaring fire.

Those of you who are feeling a little more active are welcome to go on a guided climb of Croagh Patrick, a well travelled sacred piligramage for many and long seen as a holy mountain by all who visit. There are lots of beautiful walks in the local area, as well as local beaches less than 30 minutes away.
