Connect – Reflect – Sustain

‘You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.’ Jon Kabat-Zin

We live in an ever-changing VUCA world – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. We face change and challenge every day, and our lives and heads feel busier than ever.

Self-care is the key to being our best selves – for ourselves and others. Dedicating time to refresh and sustain ourselves is a necessity in this ever-busy world.

Yogi/ Meditation teacher Chris Molloy and Coach Margaret Masterson have created a one-day experience designed to facilitate self-connection and reflection. You will take part in body and mind practices to sustain you through the waves of life. When you are connected to rest & restore your brain functions better, you become more self aware, engaged and rested.

An introspective yoga practice hones your awareness so that you become more conscious of the seeds you’re planting. Strengthening your self-reflective capacity gives you greater agency to choose the qualities you wish to cultivate.  

We invite you to:

  • Prioritise yourself – body and mind
  • Think and reflect in a safe, facilitated environment
  • Refresh your focus on yourself
  • Learn practices to sustain yourself.

Self-care is the key to being our best selves – for ourselves and others. Dedicating time to refresh and sustain ourselves is a necessity in this ever-busy world.

We have chosen The Deerstone for this experience – a special location where life slows down and we sit closely with the beauty of nature.

If you are on the ‘always busy’ treadmill

  • with a back-to-back diary
  • no quality thinking time
  • struggling with your self-care
  • always supporting others – your work, team, colleagues, friends, family, before yourself

Then this specially curated experience is your opportunity to prioritise yourself.

Please join us on this special day to connect, reflect and sustain yourself.

Schedule:

With arrival and welcomes from 9.30am, we will start at 10am with introduction, a Yin Yoga practice and facilitated Reflection. This will be followed by a delicious healthy lunch in our beautiful surroundings. Our afternoon will flow between body and mind practices and end with closing circle at 3pm.

Please wear comfortable clothing and socks for indoor movement. Bring runners and coat for outdoors. Bring water bottle for refills.

No previous yoga experience is necessary.

Event Details
05/01/2024Lisnavagh House

The New year Retreat takes place in the historic 600 acres of forest and woodlands of Lisnavagh House on January 05th – 07th. This is an invitation to welcome 2024 by reflecting on the year that’s past, turning inwards and growing in strength. By giving your yourself a break from your daily routine, to immerse yourself in nature. To tap into a space of calm and tranquility. The patterns of nature are clear to see at this time of year. It is about resting, going inwards in practices and preparing to renew for Spring.

Join me for a weekend of nourishment and care with yoga twice daily, begin your day with a morning meditation, Cacao ceremony in the evening, journalling, forest bathing, dipping in the lake & walking. There will be plenty of opportunity for alone time & space. All meals are also included in the price below. The beautiful studio space is fully equipped with mats, bolsters, blankets.

The theme of January’s circle is Reflect. You will take time to rest & observe as you reflect on the year that has passed in order to set intentions for the New Year.

We will sit in a healing meditation taking note of what comes up and moving from this space.

Enjoy nourishment from the gardens of Lisnavagh as well as local, organic, vegetarian food. The options are to share but why not treat yourself to a single occupancy four poster bedroom. Lie back and take time and space for yourself. Big fires crackle in the Dining Room and in the Library each person will find comfy sofas to curl up in with a good book. This is a well earned “look after me” time and it is our aim to help each person to slow down their pace of life and rejuvenate their body by stepping away from worries and stresses.

Today you are paying a non refundable deposit of €150 which secures your place on this retreat. The final payment is due by November 30th.

Testimonials

I was so sad and sorry when my last yoga teacher decided to move home to Italy. I thought I would never find a better teacher & then… I found Chris. She delivers a wonderfully unique class which is a marriage of movement and breath. Her class delivers a complete workout for whatever level you’re at, whilst being easy on the body and calming the mind. I look forward to every class and have never felt stronger or better.

C. Horgan

Christine conveys an immense passion for yoga. Her energy is palpable. She also has a discerning understanding of how the body works when practicing yoga. I really enjoy her classes which leave me feeling full of positivity!

D. O’Reilly

Christine is a great yoga teacher and I recommend you give her a go.  She is very spiritual but her love of family and her surroundings come through clearly in her teaching - I have wished so many times to be with her in Dublin on the beach, in the studio, in the park! I have loved her classes via Zoom and her early morning Rise and Shine class has been a fantastic start to my day.  She is very knowledgeable and clearly puts a lot into planning each month and each week. Her classes are well prepared and she takes time to explain positions with variations too so that it is suitable for many levels. Having practised with her for 6 months, she keeps her practice interesting with different themes so that no 2 classes are completely the same.  I am loving my yoga journey with her and look forward to it continuing for many years.

N. Roberts

Absolutely love Chris’s yoga classes. It has become a staple part of my week to keep my mind clear and my body right. Chris is a fantastic teacher and I especially enjoy her meditation and reflections during class. Chris herself is such a fantastic person both inside and out and her light is infectious!
