Yogini – A retreat designed for women by Lou Horgan.

Over this special weekend Lou will be hosting a series of classes and practices specifically designed for women.

Hatha Yoga

Mudra

Restorative Yoga

Meditation

Connection to Self & Nature

Spirituality

Mantra

Meditation Through Movement

Flow Yoga

Postures, breath, meditation, mudra and mantra will be used to connect us as women to the very essence of ourselves, awakening to the very essence we share with all of creation. In remembering and reconnecting to the rhythms of our bodies and remembering their interconnectivity with the moon and the cycles of the natural World something in us deeply calms.

It is said when women gather together the world heals a little… when we come together in the spirit of connection, rest and rejuvenation, which we have been doing since time began, we have an opportunity to awaken deep instinctual wisdom. When we lay down our burden and take precious time for ourselves, all who we carry benefit.Lou has been working with women through yoga for over 14 years and although the poses may look very similar to general yoga classes, the intention behind them is very different and not usually accessed.

Lou draws on the belief that the more elements available in practice the greater the practices’ potential. In her enlivening classes, breath, posture, visulisation, mudra and mantra are used.

All elements throughout the weekend, from the stunning surroundings, delicious food, silent meditations and flowing yoga will ensure a re “treat” like no other.

Yoga Teacher 

Lou Horgan Yoga Teacher at The Courtyard Yoga Retreat

LOU HORGAN

Instructor

Lou’s classes are very special, very different to your average yoga class. Lou takes you way beyond and you’ll feel very connected to yourself and nature. 

Lou began practicing yoga in 2000 and qualified to teach in 2004. Her journey began by attending a yoga class in a gym in Dublin, within a year she sat in a Himalayan ashram beginning to understand the true essence of yoga, far from its western interpretation. India led to London and an interdisiplinerary training with the Life Centre (Yoga Campus). In that time Lou trained not only with some of the UK’s leading teachers but international teachers such as Richard Freeman and Shiva Rea. In the thirteen years Lou has been teaching her classes have evolved with her experiences in life. The journey yoga has taken her on, physically mentally and spiritually is always growing evolving and ultimately like life and the universe that we inhabit, expanding.

"My husband and I have nothing but positive to say about The Courtyard. We made to feel very welcome from start to finish, with a ‘home-away-from-home’ sort of feel the food was an absolute treat and the yoga teaching was insightful and inspiring. Would give 6 stars if we could."

"Myself and my Mum had the most fantastic weekend at the Courtyard Yoga Retreat. Everything from the Yoga, to the food, to the setting and the welcome was second to none. Liz Richards is a particularly experienced and excellent yoga teacher. Olivia’s cooking is simply delicious. It is so satisfying, light but filling and extremely tasty and easy to eat. Both Mum and I can’t wait to come back. Thanks v much, Ali"

"Just back from a most amazing yoga retreat at the courtyard. From the warm welcome, yummy treats by the fire, amazing yoga sessions by Liz, and delicious and nutritious food, it was all just perfect for what I was looking for; rest, restoration, learning, good food and lovely company. Liz is a great teacher, bringing it right back to the basics and through her almost meditative stream of instruction bringing you to a new level of yoga awareness. Thank you all at the Courtyard. I will be back!"

"Came to the courtyard retreat with my sister last weekend. It did not disappoint…..beautiful surroundings, comfortable accommodation and delicious vegetarian food. Olivia and her family were very welcoming, always on hand and worked so hard to make our weekend effortless. Liz is an amazing yoga teacher. Her classes allowed us to focus on the body, breath and mind. I felt revitalize and relaxed after a weekend of delicious food, excellent yoga and great company. Wonderful way to start the year!"
