  • Emily Gilchrist

    Emily started teaching yoga since 2004. She attended a spectrum of yoga classes and developed a keen interest in this ancient art. This took her to India over ten years ago where she trained intensively as an instructor at the Sivananda Ashram, Kerala. It was here that Emily studied and discovered the disciplines of yoga and became fully connected to the practice. Since then, she has completed further courses in yogic instruction through the school of Sivananda (Orleans, France), under the guidance of Swami Durgananda, Swami Kaislananda, and Swami Krishnananda.

    "I'm so glad I booked this retreat! I wanted to go away for new year and Emilyoga's retreat in Ireland worked out perfectly. Sherkin Island was fantastic, the boat over was good fun, the hotel was ideal for what we wanted. The classes were lovely, with Emily and Angela working so well together and bringing different skills and talents to the classes. We had treatments and relaxation time, and the vision board making was good fun. Lovely group of people, will keep in touch. It was a great way to spend New Year, would highly recommend! :)"

    "I have spent three wonderful days with the fantastic Emilyoga in the beautiful castle of Montgoger. The place is beautiful but the best thing in this retreat was the excellent Emilyoga. She is an awesome yoga teacher. We practiced a lot of yoga, it was even sometimes hard, but called "good effort" and that's the way to reach the state of "samadhi" and as Emily explained to us, success to stop the fluctuations of the mental. Emily directed us to do a lot of asanas, very intensive but really good, she explained the different goals of yoga, and introduced us to the great thinking of the sutras of Patanjali, and taught us breathing exercises to purify the body and mind. We also ate vegan and healthy food. I really recommend everyone who wants to take a break and have a great, intensive practice, and a wonderful time to book a retreat with Emilyoga!"

    "I had a wonderful experience at the Chateau de Montgoger yoga retreat with Emily Gilchrist. Initially I was a bit nervous about joining the retreat since I'm not as flexible as I used to be and have recently began to practice yoga after a very long break. Emily is such a beautiful sweet and loving person who makes everyone feel comfortable. Her goal is truly to make sure you get as much as possible out of the retreat and I did.With her years of experience, she masterfully eased my stiff body into shape using blocks, bolsters, blankets to ensure I could reap the benefits of the practice. As this was a yoga/detox week, we not only practiced the Asanas (postures) but the other limbs of yoga such as Pranayama (breathing) and the Ayurvedic diet. The food was so amazing! Not only was it beautifully prepared with love but it tasted so delicious. I never thought I could eat vegan for a week, but I did and have decided to switch to a healthier vegetarian diet.After a few days I was totally renewed and by the end of the week was feeling better emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Do yourself a favor and dont hesitate to sign up for the next retreat with Emily"

    "The Yoga and Lucid Dreaming retreat I've just came back from was a life-changing experience."

    "Emily Gilchrist and the team/family that works with her in the most beautiful castle surrounded by countryside and forests were amazing from day one to day four. They made me feel like home from the very first moment I arrived in this dream-like scenario.Nick Barrett introduced me to Lucid Dreaming, which I didn't know much about, with passion and talent. The topic was including many other interesting ideas and I never felt so inspired.The food was delicious, cooked with love by Dimitri.If you are looking for the perfect retreat, this is it! Don't hesitate."

    "I loved the Emilyoga retreat! Emily is such a fantastic person and wonderful, mindful, inspiring yoga teacher. We had great two hours and 15 minutes classes twice a day, thoroughly worked out lots of asanas! I learned so much about yoga (we watched a documentary), new types of breathing, and meditations. My boyfriend was fully new to yoga, and he loved the retreat. Although I've been practicing yoga for a few years, I learned a lot as well. Emily managed to meet the needs of different people. The way she led the practice is so gentle, innerspring and also intensive (only if you are ready for it)!The venue was fantastic - beautiful chateau, fields, and grounds for walking, running, and cycling. Another ruined chateau on the grounds with 17th-century dungeons. We had a fire ceremony, fantastic delicious vegetarian food, and great people!Today is my first day back to work, but I started it with 15 minutes of meditation with candles and aroma sticks, then 30 minutes of yoga! Isn't it amazing? Thanks a lot to Emily, I really recommend others to go and try her retreat. I will definitely come back!"

    "This was my first yoga retreat, and with the combination of beautiful French countryside, a friendly group, nutritious meals, and informative theory/practical classes has made this trip truly inspiring and unforgettable. Emily is a wonderful teacher who skilfully guided us through the classes, with clear and memorable instructions incorporating all aspects of yoga. It has been a completely uplifting experience, and I thoroughly enjoyed building my knowledge of yoga and also learning more about myself in the process. Thank you so much Emily :o) "

    "The yoga retreat organized by Emily was a perfect combination of well structured yoga practices with an expert teacher, nice gatherings around a table full of tasty vegetarian food and moments of relaxation in the beautiful park of the castle and the picturesque surroundings. I liked the warm and informal style of our four days and Emilys loving way gave a magic touch to it all. Thank you Emily!"

    "I've had the great fortune of attending several of Emily's yoga retreats over the past three years and I highly recommend the experience. They've all been thoughtfully orchestrated weekends of relaxation, meditation, purification, and yoga practices suitable for all levels of participants. The asana sequences are composed in such a way that everyone can physically manage longer, more frequent practices over the weekend. Skills learned at the beginning of a retreat will be developed and built upon throughout each practice. "

    "These retreats go way beyond asanas as Emily provides tuition about Patanjalis Yoga Sutras, The Eight-Limb Path, chakras, pranayama, ayurvedic practices, nutrition and loads of other interesting topics. I've always left feeling completely open and relaxed, lighter and more aware, healthier and energized. From guiding me thru my first meditation to gently coaching me into Salamba Shirshasana, I can honestly say I couldnt have wished for a better instructor. If you would like to dive deeper into the realm of yoga with a fantastic instructor, head for one of Emilys retreats!"
