January Restore Balance with Fiona and Orla.
We’re excited to announce another date for our Fitness and Yoga retreat! Move and rejuvenate at our retreat in the New Year. Located in Tranquility House, nestled amongst the beautiful setting of the Cooley mountains and Carlingford Lough, Co. Louth. We’re bringing you the best of both worlds by combining fitness and yoga. This retreat is ideal if you like to be active but also enjoy down time.
Incorporating HIIT workouts, yoga and hiking in the beautiful surrounds, this two night retreat is centred around a healthy body and mind. We will also be doing cooking demonstrations and will give lots of nutritional tips along the way.
With daily activities comes the need for rest and relaxation, this sanctuary offers a peaceful break from busy life and features to make sure you really put your feet up after a busy Christmas! Having worked up an appetite, you will be treated to the most delicious, healthy vegetarian meals each day.
Hosted by Personal Trainer Fiona Peelo and Yoga Teacher Orla McAdam, you will return home from this healthy retreat a new you.
