Self Care Sunday at the Grianán Hotel, Burt, 

1-5pm, June 23rd 2024.

In the beautiful circular Tuatha De Dannan suite of the Grianán Hotel, Burt, enjoy a gentle yoga session facilitated by Maria Coleman from Donegal Yoga Retreats / Comhcheol Arts & Wellness. This accessible practice is designed to bring ease to the body and mind, and prepare for deeper relaxation during the closing sound bath. This blissful hour and half will include the soothing sounds of planetary tuned gongs and solfeggio tuned tibetan singing bowls. The frequencies induce deep relaxation.

Afterwards, enjoy the hotel's classic afternoon tea, with its mouthwatering selection of sandwiches, wraps and savory baking, as well as delicious pasteries. Let the organiser know in good time if you have special dietary requirements.

"You can't pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first." You will float home from this Self Care Sunday, your cup filled to brimming!

All paricipants are requested to bring their own yoga mat,* blanket, pillow and floor padding (i.e. sleeping bag, second thick blanket, folded quilt etc.) This equipment is essential for comfort while lying on the ground. All participants will be provided with a bolster. 

*If you do not own a yoga mat, please request one by texting 0879667142

Maria is also inviting you, weather permitting, to meet at 11.30 that morning at the well of An Grianán Ailigh (to the right of the fort entrance). "We can sing the water mantra that came to me on St. Brigit's Day 2022."

'Uisce glan, uisce beannaithe, uisce flúirseach,

Uisce glan, uisce beannaithe, uisce beo,

Uisce glan, uisce beannaithe, uisce ársa'

(Text Maria on 0879667142 if you plan to attend.)

An Grianán Ailigh/ 'The Grianán of Aileach' one of Ireland's most stunning hilltop forts, is just a 10 minute drive by car from the hotel. Alternatively, you could bring your all-weather gear and leave an hour or two for a leisurely walk up and back. The views across the Swilly, Inishowen are beyond, are breathtaking.

Sound Baths

When packing for a sound bath :

  • Think warmth and comfort. Comfortable clothes, warm socks, cosy blanket/s, hot water bottle?-Bring something padded to lie on. (Folded quilt, sleeping bag, camping mattress or a second yoga mat etc.)
  • Consider bringing something to support under your knees. This passively releases the psoas muscles in the low back. (There are bolsters available. Please indicate by text if you want one provided. There is a limited supply so book early o879667I42).
  • If you prefer lying in your side ( which is a wonderful way to avoid snoring ), consider bringing ANOTHER PILLOW to place between your knees.
  • Arrive in good time so you are well settled before the start. Late arrivals can disturb the event.
  • Remember DO NOT BRING YOUR PHONE into the sound bath!
