After all the activity and hubbub of the Summer, September is a lovely and necessary time to invest in some self- care. At the Harvest Retreat in Ballymaloe we take a holistic approach to your relaxation, meaningful activities, dining and where you stay are all centered on relaxation and finding peace. Enjoy the luxurious yet cozy comforts of the beautiful Ballymaloe House and its surrounding gardens (home to a family of native red squirrel!). Practice yoga with Dearbhla Glynn and be guided through mediation and movement that allows the mind and body to release stress. And let yourself be nourished by the incredible chef Niamh Fox as she tailors a menu that combines health, wholesomeness and pure deliciousness.
The mornings will begin with a slow and thoughtful Vinyasa flow that strengthens and re- energizes the body for the day. This is followed by the renowned Ballymaloe breakfast buffet. The afternoons will be a restful time of garden walks, plunges in the Wild Atlantic ocean, walks on the coast, a scented soak in the bath, and curling up to the cosy fires of Ballymaloe house with a good book or nice chat with your like- minded yoga group. The evenings are dedicated to Yin and Restorative Yoga that allow you to relax completely and get that lovely melting full body feeling only yoga can achieve. Dinners will be candlelit, cooked with the finest seasonal ingredients grown in Ballymaloe and bursting with flavour.
This retreat is made to nourish, replenish and devote time completely for yourself. Sink into the comforts of Ballymaloe House, indulge in the wonders of such a talented chef, and find peace in the timeless practice of yoga. With a little time, care and thought wonders can be achieved!
