Burnout is real.
Now officially recognised by the World Health Organisation as a legitimate syndrome, it’s a feeling of exhaustion and depletion that can leave you feeling overwhelmed by life.
And it only gets worse. If you’re struggling to keep up with a never-ending list of tasks at work and at home, it can take a concentrated effort to turn things around.
Your best bet? A complete escape.
Nobody knows the benefit of a short, restorative break better than Cork yoga teacher Alma Murray, whose sell-out retreats in spectacular locations across Ireland, Spain and France have put countless frazzled attendees back on the right track.
“It can be a life-changing experience to reconnect with yourself and remember what brings you joy.” says Alma. “Sometimes a little clarity is all you need to start creating the means to have it.
“Deep relaxation and peace of mind bring physical, mental and emotional benefits, disconnecting you from all the demands and pressures that pull you in so many directions at home.”
Alma, who has been teaching Vinyasa Flow yoga for over a decade, designed Revive You Retreats to be suitable for anyone who is craving some time to reset and enjoy a healthy escape in a beautiful location, surrounded by nature.
Thanks to word of mouth, they sell out fast.
There are two places remaining on the next retreat in Kenmare (February 28th – March 1st, 2020, book here). Expect two yoga classes a day in an underfloor heated studio, tasty vegetarian meals, bracing walks against the backdrop of the Kerry Mountains and a delicious dinner at the Lime Tree restaurant in Kenmare village.
If you can stretch to a little sunshine this spring, a handful of places remain on the Mallorca ‘Vinyasa & Vineyards’ Retreat (April 24th – 27th, 2020, book here).
Set in beautiful Cala Tuent, this retreat involves daily yoga classes, a gentle hike to Sa Colabra beach, swimming in the beautiful waters of the bay and a visit from a local vineyard to sample mouthwatering organic wines on the last day of the retreat before dinner at the famous Es Vergeret restaurant.
Guests stay in a historic Finca surrounded by ancient olive and pine trees, orange and lemon groves.
Sounds like bliss.
“It is impossible to put a price on the profound benefit of being helped to connect with inner stillness,” adds Alma.
“A weekend retreat can be wonderfully rewarding on so many levels. Everyone leaves feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, energised and empowered.”
