Outdoor yoga is back this week (and you can book an all-day retreat to celebrate)
Craving a proper stretch in the spring sunshine?
Now that small outdoor gatherings are permitted once again (groups of 15 can get together starting on May 10th) one local yogi is looking forward to hosting a fun programme of soothing and strengthening classes for visitors to her unique countryside studio.
Rosie Murphy, a yoga teacher and owner of The Yoga Nook, spent the lockdown building a geodesic dome at her home in the quiet village of Carrigadrohid.
“I plan for this season’s yoga sessions and day retreats to relax nervous systems after the hectic year, but also to be a laugh,” Rosie told Yay Cork.

“Last year, Yoga in Nature was a community gathering as much as anything else. I saw how healing this was for people, and for myself. It’s a lovely, positive, and simple way to ease back into a more social culture as we move up through the lockdown levels.”
Classes will be announced two days in advance (depending on the weather), with a series of day retreats coming up too, announced on a monthly basis. You can join a dedicated WhatsApp group for updates here.
“Each day retreat is centred around a special theme, bookended with a flowing and a relaxing yoga session,” said Rosie.
“There will be delicious food but also something a little different, such as an outdoor music session for our first retreat.”
The first retreat, ‘Yoga agus Ceoil’ takes place on Saturday, May 15th, 2021 from 10am to 4pm. Tickers are €60 and you can book your place here.
