Burren Yoga Profile
The Centre offers weekend or week long retreats in the heart of the beautiful Burren from their base in Kinvara on the Clare/Galway border.
The yoga and meditation courses are suitable for complete beginners to the more advanced pupil and are taught in a small group of 15 by one of a team of highly qualified yoga and meditation teachers.
The Yoga and Meditation Centre was founded in 1999 by Dave Brocklebank whose aim is to create an authentic Yoga experience in a relaxed environment.
Comfortable neat accommodation either shared in a mini dormitory housing 4 to 6 people or, single or double rooms when available are offered and can be requested on booking. The centre can sleep 23 people but the numbers per course are restricted to 15 so that the choice of one of the three single rooms is almost always open to you. The decor is bright and the under floor heating keeps the rooms warm and cosy at night.
The vegetarian meals served are of the highest quality and cooked to perfection by chef Paddi whose experience gained while running the Seventh Heaven restaurant in Galway city brings a touch of class to each mealtime.
Gort is only 6 miles from Kinvara and can be reached by train or bus and from there you can avail of a reduced fare taxi to the centre.
