Lisa Quish - 01 Oct 2016

Lisa Quish

October Yoga Retreats

As the end of the year approaches, it is a perfect time to plan a short break to get the last of the European sun and set yourself up for a healthy Winter. Lisa Quish is running a number of short retreats in Portugal & Italy in October in conjunction with Quinta Bonita in the Algarve and Sunflower Retreats, in Italy. She is also running a retreat in Ireland in Co.Carlow. 

Quinta Bonita
Sensitively converted from an old Portuguese estate, at Quinta Bonita traditional charm and modern luxury blend seamlessly in idyllic surroundings to create a truly unforgettable experience. Continuing a tradition of hospitality that stretches back more than 25 years, the owners Chantelle, Fraser and team provide personalised five-star service in a peaceful sanctuary of refined comfort and laid back luxury. Over four days, participants will experience all the elements that combine to create strong, flexible and fit bodies and enjoy a clear mind. The programme will include daily Yoga to create awareness, focus on the full range of body movements, cultivation of flexibility, stabilisation of the core, and development of mental agility and relaxation through daily mediations, restorative practices and breath work. There will also be an introduction to daily routines that cultivate a state of perfect health as per the yoga tradition. The walking and cycling will be lead by Fraser who is a cycling fanatic. There will also be Atlantic swims for the brave, and if not the heated pool might just have to do. Massage treatments can be added to sooth tired muscles, and free stagnant energy. There is also access to a qualified nutritionist for one to one consultations 

Sunflower Retreat
Casperia is located high in the Sabina mountains, north of Rome. With impressionist style panoramic views of an expansive valley, you can hear goat bells, see miniature cars curling around bends and watch the sun fade like a ball of fire behind the mountains.  This medieval hill top town is fully pedestrianised which adds to its Old World Charm. The yoga studios, restaurants and treatment rooms, are all located a few cobble steps away from your own casa.   It is the perfect place to practice & learn more about yoga, journal, cycle, sunbath, eat wonderful local food and mingle”.  


Lisa has been teaching yoga for over ten years. She leads weekly classes in Dublin both open and corporate. She offers individual sessions, combining the principles of Yoga and coaching and teaches retreats both at home and abroad. Her teaching is a blend of classical Hatha, Iyengar and Vinyasa, and is influenced by Ayurvedic principles. Classes are sequenced to engage students fully, in a challenging, compassionate and mindful way.
