What to Expect

Loughcrew Estate will provide the setting for Shiva Rea’s first retreat in Ireland. Loughcrew Estate which is home to one of Ireland’s most mystical sites. The cairns at Loughcrew form the largest complex of passage graves in Ireland, much older than the better known Newgrange. Shiva and Demetri will be guiding us through a series of Prana Flow and Prana Danda inspired yoga practices to help us harness the energy of this unique location.
