You will be spending your nights at The Elbowroom Escape, Donard. Nestled in the magnificent Glen of Imaal, The Elbowroom Escape offers a sanctuary of elegance, tranquillity, and serenity. Stunning views, immersion in nature, and the sheer magnificence of the Wicklow mountains will make your escape unforgettable. The center is surrounded by an oak forest at the foothill of the Glen of Imaal mountains.

Retire to your stylish, en-suite room and enjoy an amazing shower sourced directly from mountain spring water. Chose from five twin or double bedrooms and two luxury bunk rooms. The center features an oak floor space for gatherings and classes and a separate dining cabin. You will have a living permaculture garden growing your food, amazing grounds to relax in which have views of the Sugar Loaf, Kaedeen, and Lugnaquilla. Fire up the wood fired hot tub and soak away your troubles.

Healthy weight loss is positive and transforming. It is about losing weight and getting multiple, life-saving benefits along with it, like lower cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower blood sugar.

Each of the guests is treated individually. The weight-loss program is designed to help you de-stress, detox, rest, relax, nourish your body, and feel great. It will empower you to make healthy diet and lifestyle choices.

Each guest will get an individual consultation with the nutritionist and a private session with the lead instructor to help tailor a home program for you.

  • Bev Porrino

    Bev's first experience of yoga was in the early 90's and falls somewhere between the realm of amusement and humiliation. She was about 25 years old, a runner, and cyclist and like most of the people, she initially went to yoga to become more flexible. As an athlete, she was result-driven and competitive and as yoga encompasses neither of these traits, she veritably suffered. Going back a little further, Bev qualified as a registered nurse in 1987 and some years later she was operations manager in a busy social work department. Yoga and fitness helped her to manage her stress.

The yoga holiday will take place in Donard, Ireland.

You will be served with daily nourishing breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You will also be served with cleansing juices, light broths, and superfood salads. The Elbowroom Escape aims to provide ethical, homegrown, organic, locally sourced food. Raw, vegan, gluten, wheat and sugar-free options available along with healthy child-friendly selections. Dine in the larch cabin and prepare food in the fully commercial kitchen. Escape to the hills of County Wicklow for the amazing monthly supper club.

To add more excitement to the retreat, you can go for a walk as the center is surrounded by an oak forest at the foothill of the Glen of Imaal mountains. You can enter the Glen from the garden gate.
