Just what my body & soul needed

Just what my body & soul needed

Most nourishing natural retreat

Relax, Walk, Stretch & Enjoy – our ReNature Yoga Natural Retreat from 6th to 9th of April was a wonderful, relaxing experience. Quite a mixed and international group of people joined us for 4 days to unplug, relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

This wonderful retreat was lead by Marion Edler-Burke and Flor Burke, owners and creators of Crann Og Eco Farm.

Participants attended from Ireland, UK and Germany…a lovely bunch!

Days were filled with yoga, nature therapy guided walks, mindfulness practices, good food, lots of laughter, singing and plenty of time to relax and do nothing, to just enjoy the beautiful nature surrounding us.  Not to mention lots of gorgeous vegetarian food prepared by Brigid O’Leary, Paul King and Merle Diekmann.

We also had a storytelling night around a warm campfire, were we shared many of our adventures and experiences with nature.

The retreat included tactile activities such as nature arts and crafts with gentle yoga classes, mindfulness walks and meditation and breathing practices to deepen our connection with nature as well as our inner self.

We were treated to a Sound Bath by Fiona McDonagh of Lamh Clinic on Saturday afternoon.

It was such a joy for us to see everyone drop down deep, slow down and relax.  They were all beaming smiles and bonded deeply.

Here’s what they said:

‘Fabulous retreat, really enjoyed the yoga and woodland walks.’

‘It was just what my body and soul needed.’

‘Thank you all so much for the most nourishing retreat for the soul.’

‘It has been a truly wonderful retreat, thank you for the delicious meals.’

During our retreats, each moment, each experience provides the opportunity to reconnect with nature, yourself and the essence of community.

If you would like to get unplugged & back to nature and experience such a restorative and deeply relaxing weekend yourself, we will host the next ReNature Yoga Retreat from 28th September to 1st of October 2017.

You can find out more and book your place here.

For the next retreat we will be offering yurts, a super big bell tent and our private eco cabin for private accommodation, couples and/or close friends to share…totally glamped out, luxury off grid eco accommodation…to really get back to nature!

Nature Therapy Benefits – Feel Good Factor

Nature Therapy Benefits – Feel Good Factor

Back to Nature

 

 The Connacht Tribune has run a feature on Crann Og Eco Farm promoting the importance of Nature and the positive effects it has on our daily lives.

Connecting with nature through guided Nature Therapy Walks, Nature School and ReNature Retreats helps us slow down and relax, reduces stress, strengthens our immune system and lifts our mood.

We have been talking about nature therapy benefits since 2004. Visitors and participants emerge from Crann Og reconnected, restored and relaxed. Their shoulders drop, their smiles broaden and they sleep deeper.

 

 

It was fantastic to have such a lengthy feature written about Crann Og and Marion, helping to promote the cause of getting people back to nature for well being and health, emotional and physical. Many thanks to Judy Murphy of the Connacht Tribune for such a good article!

Marion will be giving an introduction to Nature Therapy Walks at the BurrenBeo Landscape Symposium on 10th – 12th March 2017.

Unplug, Refresh & Detox

Unplug, Refresh & Detox

Juice Detox & Yoga Retreats

People who choose to attend a juice cleanse, yoga & mindfulness retreat come from various backgrounds.  Regardless of age, retreatants may be interested in supercharging their body and life by starting down the road to great health and vitality, detoxifying their body, losing weight, coping with a serious health condition(s), addressing loss of vitality and low energy levels, preventing chronic and acute common illnesses and improving self esteem.

Almost all are interested in getting in some deep relaxation and quality personal time away from the hustle and bustle. It’s easier to cope and more much fun to cleanse and fast together, complementing each other with mutual support in a relaxed and respectful ambiance.  People often make new and lasting friends in this process.

The Benefits Are?

  • Assist toxin removal
  • Enhanced hydration
  • Assist reduction of chronic conditions
  • Enhance immune system function
  • Lose weight. Weight loss is a by-product of any cleansing or fasting regime, but is not our primary motivation in our retreats, though we accept for some retreatants this is a major aim.
  • Improve quality of life
  • Increase energy
  • Improve skin quality
  • Mental and emotional clarity
  • Restore balance to our physiology

The Program

  • 3 day Juice Cleanse with mixes of delicious fruit & vegetables, & Superfood Green Alkalising smoothies by Living Foods Ireland.
  • Daily gentle Yoga and Meditation to enhance cleansing of body, mind & spirit.
  • Qi Gong to compliment Yoga and enhance awareness of the body’s natural energy flow.
  • Mindfulness Walks in native Irish woodlands to experience deeper connection with Self & Nature.
  • Additional optional techniques to compliment your cleanse/detox process…oil pulling, salt water gut flush, neti pot nasal flush.
  • Creative tactile nature art/craft with clay & willow.
  • Unconditional love from our furry animal therapists…horses, sheep, dogs & cats.
  • Gorgeous extras like Therapeutic Massage & Guided Animal Imagery.
