Close your eyes for a minute & call to mind something that makes you smile.
No really, try it! Close your eyes & think of a person or experience, or something that brings a smile to your face. Just the thought might make the corners of your mouth lift up slightly, and you may find yourself feeling a bit happier, a bit lighter! Let yourself feel that joy for a minute.
When our lives become busy, sometimes we don’t make time to connect with others and find our smiles. We may be leading our lives from our heads rather than our hearts, which may leave us feeling stressed and disconnected. When that happens, the world seems less kind, and we may feel like something is missing.
Lisa and Rebecca find great joy in traveling the world and discovering new, magical places to host you for yoga, smiles, exploration, and healing. Deep within the wilderness of Connemara and South Mayo, there are breathtaking mountain vistas and brilliant views of the banks of the Bundorragha River, just waiting for you to visit. In September of 2021, escape to Western Ireland for a week of yoga and meditation, reflection and connection, and plenty of time to relax and reclaim your joy.
Days will be gingerly anchored by sunrise and late afternoon yoga and meditation practices to nourish the body and soul. These practices will support you in tuning in to your mind and heart, and allowing space for you to experience them just as they are, without judgement. We will reignite the spirit of kindness and compassion for ourselves and for others, co-creating a heart-centered community for all to have space to explore inner and outer landscapes. We will cultivate balance in all things—activity and rest, time alone and time together, time to connect to mother earth and time to connect to our own inner wisdom.
