Wells House and Gardens held its first ever summer yoga retreat with locally based reiki healer and yoga instructor Liz Reilly, who is based in Gorey.

'The wellness retreat offered an opportunity for like minded individuals to come together for a weekend of relaxation, yoga, meditation and a chance to recharge the body and soul. They all pushed boundaries and had growth in their own journey of life and yoga,' said a spokesperson for Wells House. 

The programme offered a variety of different yoga techniques including hatha, yin and slow flow.

Over the course of the weekend, participants enjoyed relishing in the tranquil surroundings of the 400 acre estate with a nightly stay in the cosy cottages within the grounds.

A vegetarian and vegan menu was on offer alongside daily classes, to fit the Wells for Wellness theme.

'Our programme is designed to support a holistic experience and promote a deeper connection with your body, mind and spirit. We are planning an autumn yoga retreat for the coming season after the success of the summer retreat,' said the spokesperson for Wells House.
