I’m delighted and excited to invite you to join me, Michelle Gupta, with 10+ years teaching experience, for an all-inclusive weekend of Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Meditation and more at Creacon this year. We enjoyed three fully-booked weekends in 2021 with a number of guests returning again and again! Places are limited so pay your deposit €98 below to avoid disappointment.

 

Everyone is welcome and no experience is required to enjoy and benefit from mindful meditation and movement – Tai Chi, Chi Kung and mindful walking – all inspired by the stunning, luxurious and tranquil surroundings of Creacon Wellness Retreat. Be kind to your body and mind with these flowing and gentle – yet also invigorating and strengthening – movements which are suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes! And if you’re new to meditation, rest assured that each session will be relaxed and guided. We’ll also be exploring the theme of “Loving Kindness” and techniques including meditations, self-Indian Head massage and a nourishing Tibetan Singing Bowl session.

 

If you fancy a weekend of ‘kindfulness’, serene surroundings, refreshing greenery, open spaces, room to breathe, an energy boost, deluxe accommodation, nutritious, gourmet “Food is Medicine” meals designed by a master chef as well as a de-cluttered and refreshed mind and body – then this is the weekend for you!!

 

Our weekend starts 5.30pm on Fri 3rd June  (check-in available from 3pm) / ends 2.30pm Sun 5th June after lunch.

In between classes there will be plenty of time to relax in one of Creacon’s cosy lounges or the cafe. Take time to enjoy the richly green surroundings, and views from the decked terrace, the restful labyrinth garden, the gorgeous gift shop or just take a breather with a cup of tea! There’s even a sauna and a gym for your use. Plus a wide range of Holistic therapies available (at extra cost).
