Freshly squeezed juice retreats
Arc Healing was founded to offer holistic and complimentary treatments, classes and workshops at affordable prices. In 2011 we teamed up with Yoga teacher Kenneth Ryan, to offer Residential ‘Juicy Yoga’ retreats. That August, I advertised our very first residential yoga retreat and it felt like the beginning of something very special. One month later, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, I was even more determined to make it a success. I wanted to share my knowledge of how a healthy lifestyle and positive attitude could get you through even the most difficult situations. Two years on, I’m cancer free and juicing my way through a healthy pregnancy!
We’ve created a safe space filled with love and healing and our the focus is not just on cleansing toxins from the body but also clearing of the mind and nourishment of the soul. Retreats run Friday-Sundays and include all meals, activities and accommodation. People come from all over Ireland, the UK and as from as far away as Norway and we couldn’t be happier.
The programme for each weekend is tailored to the needs of our guests. We usually have a mix of complete yoga novices who have never juiced before to those with great experience of both. We have increased the number of retreats we will offer in 2014, with the first scheduled for the 3rd January – a great way to start the year for us and for participants.
I’ve been told our retreats are unique and the best compliment of all – people keep coming back!
