What a wonderful experience. A long overdue trip for me, and so worth it. It was everything I hoped for an more. I went for the yoga, but found so much more at Macalla Farm. The yoga itself expanded both my understanding and my respect for the practice. My boundaries were tested and pushed through in ways that I haven't...

I participated in the recent weekend Yoga & Meditation Retreat. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. Retreating from the busyness of the world started at Roonagh Harbour to take the ferry to Clare Island, a 20 minute trip in spectacular surroundings. The peacefulness of the island descended on landing. Transported by one of the few motor vehicles...

I decided to go to Macalla farm last Christmas to unwind and reconnect with both myself and nature. It exceeded all expectations. The location is literally heaven on earth and the retreat was exceptional. The food was amazing, all from the garden and prepared to perfection. The yoga was light and focused on breathing and mindfulness so it got me...

My summer Sati yoga + meditation retreat was a wonderful and uplifting experience. The welcoming family atmosphere, the great studio, skillful instruction and guidance and sharing the company of all the participants made the experience truly unique. The food was delicious and organic (just picked!) and savoured gazing out over the farm to the Atlantic and the mainland. Add in...

I attended the Christmas Sati Yoga and Meditation retreat at Macalla Farm on Clare Island in December 2016. I was very disappointed by the course content which in my opinion did not reflect the course description. The organisers described Sati yoga as “a transformative practice which aims at developing mindfulness of body, breath and mind through asanas (postures), systematic relaxation,...

We are very sorry for the misunderstanding and did review the course description thoroughly after this course, as two participants made it clear that they had expected something different. Because what we teach is very distinct and relatively unique, we take great care to describe it as accurately as possible on our website. The course description mentions that the Sati...

I've had the pleasure of attending retreats as well as working here. This is such a special place, a retreat location on an island, and a stunningly remote part too adds to the depth of the experience. The yoga is excellent and has transformed by practice a lot! I haven't attended many other types of retreat but here you get...

I went to the Clare Island retreat centre on an open house arrangement and it was just what I needed. I loved the practice , the food and the non expectation of anything.
