Imbolc- one of the old festivals of the Celtic Tradition
is a time when first signs of spring begin to show
we begin to emerge from our winter slumber.
It is a time for new beginnings and change.
A time when we nurture our dreams
and aspirations for the new year ahead
with sensitivity and patience.
So let us together celebrate Imbolc
transformational yoga, healthy tasty lunch, a treat
and a guided medition walk in the Cooley Mountains.
Let your body be energised and deeply relaxed and your mind
be full of clarity and inspiration

Martina Durnin is an Intermediate level 3 Iyengar Yoga teacher. Martina started practicing yoga in London in 1999 at the age of 24 and immediately knew that she found something she was going to do for the rest of her life. The effectiveness of the Iyengar Yoga method was mind-blowing to her from the very start. Martina was able to fix her rounded posture and correct her physical imbalances in a relatively short space of time through persistent practice. But it is the deeper psychological benefits of yoga that make her come back to the mat day after day. Martina qualified as an Iyengar Yoga teacher in 2004 and has been passionately sharing this method with others since then. Martina later graduated as a physical therapist to further deepen her knowledge of the body’s function and dysfunction. Martina is a co-founder of Carlingford Yoga and has been running residential retreats with her partner Stuart since 2012. She is devoted to the practice of yoga and continues to deepen her knowledge of every aspect of the practice with the most senior teachers the world has to offer.
