Yoga, Mindfulness, Meditation – A special all-round feel good retreat

Hatha Yoga

Flow Yoga

Fun whilst Learning

Mindfulness

Restorative Yoga

Tension Release

Energising

Connection to Self

Stilling of Mind

This retreat will give you the opportunity to tap into your own true nature to express your own uniqueness in a positive way that contributes to your personal growth. The retreat will be a blend of challenging and fun yoga sessions.

The style of yoga taught on this retreat will be inspired by both Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga in which Naomi is trained in, combined with meditation, relaxation and restorative practices. It will be about learning to explore movements in our bodies, to get creative,  finding what feels good, to get to know yourself again and to re-connect to what lights you up.  In each class you will be given tools and information to find what serves you best for your body and for your mind.

This retreat is a time for you to realign, recalibrate and redirect your intentions. It will include yoga to strengthen your body and mind. In the classes I encourage each individual to challenge themselves to their own abilities, having fun along the way. This will be a great opportunity for you to enjoy a weekend away from it all, enjoy beautiful surroundings of The Courtyard and delicious food.

Naomi will lead you through engaging and involving Yoga sessions to connect your awareness, body and breath. The weekend will also include time to become mindful through your movements and in stillness. In building awareness and taking time to slow down and step out of the day to day rushing, you will give yourself an opportunity to move into the final seasons of the year with more clarity and sense of honouring your true self.

Our Guest Reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed the venue, yoga, food, ambience and fun during the weekend at The Courtyard. Well done Olivia, Liz, Noel and Dee!

The Courtyard is a very special place. Stunning location in the wicklow mountains and then you have the buildings that have been renovated beautifully to create a calm restful open space. The yoga classes with Liz Richards were incredibly well planned so as to be suitable for a large group with mixed ability from total beginner to a teacher trainer. Don Brennan gave a 2 1/2 hour talk on ayerveda that was simply fascinating. I floated home after a weekend retreat and will absolutely be back. Thank you Olivia, that was exactly what I needed.

The Courtyard Yoga Retreat is a very special place. It provides nourishment for the body and soul. A truly authentic experience in a wonderfully authentic space and place. Superb yoga with Liz a true yogi, who generously shares her knowledge and guides each individual through the practice carefully and attentively. The food is a delight home cooked and delicious. Olivia has mastered the art of creating vegetarian food that tastes absolutely divine. The surroundings of the beautiful original house and courtyard buildings, which have been loving restored by her parents Dee and Noel top off the entire experience offering serenity in the heart of Wicklow. It’s a truly special place.

An absolutely amazing weekend. Olivia and her family are so incredibly welcoming and professional. The location is just stunning and so calming. They've done such brilliant job at restoring it. You can see how much love and hard work went into it. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it (which is important after lots of yoga!) Liz, our yoga instructor was so knowledgeable and intuitive. I've been doing yoga for nearly two years and I learned more in those few sessions with liz than I've done in all my time practicing. She's so passionate.

"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!"
