Join Andrea Dyer for her annual international yoga adventure – this year to Ireland. They say you don’t go to Ireland for the weather. You go there in pursuit of the magic of this Emerald Isle. This year we will focus on sparking wonder and interest in exploring this beautiful country in pursuit of fairies, leprechauns, castles, rocky coastlines, green meadows, cuisine, and a peaceful corner maybe reading Joyce, Wilde, Yeats, Shaw…
The beauty of this country and the draw of its magical legends will help us spark wonder and interest in exploring. Our yoga practices will ready us for this – grounded in mindful presence, we will open our senses and foster interest in exploring our lives in daily morning meditations and afternoon deep stretch sessions (recovery from days spent exploring). For the ardent yogis, a morning ashtanga short form practice will be offered.
Consider this a yoga vacation – a place to refresh your spirit, energy and maybe even your yoga practice. We leave lots of time daily for you to personally construct how you want to spend your time – readers read, hikers hike, wanderers wander. There will be plenty of activities for all and we’ll be staying in a beautiful hotel nestled in the countryside about 4 hours west of Dublin.

“I’ve gone on six of Andrea’s retreats so far and have had the most wonderful experiences. She puts so much thought and consideration into these trips, which makes them not only fun but incredibly meaningful. They’re a perfect mixture of yoga, adventure, and relaxation. I can’t wait for the next one!” – Sandy S.
“Andrea is the absolute best! I have enjoyed her retreats in Costa Rica and Italy and I can’t wait until we travel together again! If you enjoy a laid back retreat where you meet new people, this is the one for you.” – Deirdra C.
“Both of my yoga retreat experiences to Costa Rica and to Italy with Andrea and TrueNature have deepened my practice with quiet moments of reflection, a heightened insight of gratitude, provided me spirited travel experiences and new friends….not to mention delicious food and lovely accommodations. Each retreat has enhanced my spiritual and personal growth in ways I had not anticipated, yet in ways that I cherish.” – Mary V C.
“I attended Andrea’s first retreat to Costa Rica. The retreat was incredible. It flowed perfectly because it was very organized and flawlessly executed. We had daily yoga, amazing excursions, and much needed free time for R&R. I highly recommend experiencing one of Andrea’s retreats.” – Patti N.
“I was in a very dark place when I went on the First MBFY retreat with you and some amazing women . I found my voice that week and am ever so grateful for that week of yoga, meditation, and friendship.” – Linda C.
