Transformative Yoga Retreats with Noeleen

Teacher Training Retreat in Sligo

Study, Practice, Play

February, 16th - 18th, 2024

We’re heading to the hills of Sligo to the magical site of Cabragh Lodge.  The Lodge was built in harmony and symphony with the surround beauty of the landscape. In this place we will study, practice and play together.
This is a chance for you to have some ‘time out’ to learn and grow through the practice Anusara Yoga.  This is the perfect Bealtaine/Spring reset. 
Experiencing Anusara Yoga can change your practice and teaching in a profound way.  The attention to the biomechanics of the poses is a welcome education. The intention of the practice is not to create some perfect outer form but rather to deepen your relationship with your own consciousness and the Universal Consciousness.


Who is this retreat for?

This is suitable for Yoga Teachers and Practitioners who want to deepen their own practice of asana, philosophy and meditation in  a fun atmosphere.  There are two options.

  • Teacher Tune Up Option – As a teacher you can choose to do the full 24 hours of training.  Think of this as a teacher tune up.  We will look at the fundamentals of teaching a yoga class. Including Voicing,  Getting Students Into a Pose,  Creating Sacred Space, Seat of the Teacher, Ethics, Asana Breakdown
  • Plus lots of peer practice
  • And, lots of personal practice  
  • Weekend Retreat Option – you can come and take part in the group practices both morning and afternoon. Enjoy delicious food and free-time in this beautiful place.  So, pre breakfast and pre lunch practice, plus late afternoon pre dinner slow practice.  Sound bath on Saturday night.

Either way, you will learn about Anusara Yoga’s Universal Principles of Alignment and be inspired by the non dual tantric philosophy that supports the practice. If you are looking to tune up  your practice then this is the perfect choice for you.  If you are a yoga teacher looking for inspiration and a deeper understanding, then come along and join others who are on the same path.

This is an opportunity to challenge yourself and grow as a yogi and/or teacher.  It’s also a chance to get away with some fun loving, open hearted people to recharge your batteries.

Immerse yourself in yoga and a supportive community and avail of my three decades of experience of yoga practice, teaching and training.  For those who are taking the Weekend Retreat Option, there is also plenty of down time to relax, read, hike etc.

This promises to be a full-hearted, transformative experience spent in  like-minded company. Expect a lot of joy, laughter and fun!

So, specifically, the retreat is for,

  • Yoga teachers of any style of yoga: This will also account for 20+ CPD Hours with Yoga Alliance & YAP. 

  • Licensed Anusara teachers: Licensed Anusara teachers may take the 20+ Hours as elective hours towards the 300 hour qualification
  •  Practitioners: any one who loves yoga and wants to better understand alignment and go deeper into the practices and philosophy 

Suitable for everyone who has some yoga experience      

       We will cover;                                     

  • Why Alignment Matters and what are we aligning to?
  • Universal Principles of Alignment (UPA’s) – Biomechanical principles that can be applied to any person, any pose as required (or not)
