Our Irish home will be none other than Tig Roy (house of Roy) http://www.tigroy.com/blog/ Roy Galvin, our gracious host is a national treasure! A former professional ballet & modern dancer, he’ll (attempt to) teach us a few traditional Irish social dances. Also a traditional Irish music teacher, he’ll play for us and maybe even sit in on a session at the local pub…very authentic Ireland! Day 1 Private van pick up at Shannon airport 7 AM to drive us to Tig Roy where we will be greeted with tea and a nosh, once we’re settled into our shared double rooms, you’re free to take a hike or simply rest up for a bit before our first yoga practice 5:00-7:00. At 7:30 a scrumptious dinner prepared by Roy and his intern (did I mention he is also a gourmet cook and Irish culture expert?! Youngsters from around the world vie for an internship). Days 2 & 3 Yoga 7:00-9:00 AM, breakfast 9:30, free time before and after lunch, yoga 5:00-7:00 and dinner 7:30.
