Attend a yoga day retreat, weekend break or a holiday for time to focus on you, your practice and relaxation.




I run occasional weekend workshops, sometimes with visiting teachers. Most of these are hosted at Maitri Studio, where other (non-yoga) workshops are also listed. You can book my own workshops through the booking form, or other events by following the links.

Aisling Guirke's monthly 3-hour workshops for teachers and students with a strong practice are on: January 9th, February 6th, March 6th, April 3rd, May 8th and June 5th 2019.

In these 2.5hr workshops we have more time to dive into the practice, often on the Pune cycle (standings, forward extensions, back extensions, restorative/pranayama) but linked to the whole suite of poses. Choose the workshop pass from the drop-down on the buy page, and register for the workshop/s you wish to attend.

  • Sunday 20 Jan 1.30-4pm - leg work to wake you up - so standings but also any other poses I might choose!

  • Sunday 17 Feb 1.30-4pm - folding forwards whether standing, seated, supine or inverted.

  • Saturday 16 March 10am-12.30pm - back extensions for both energy and calm

  • Saturday 13 April 10am-12.30pm - we’ll be doing some inversions today in the mix!

  • Sunday 26 May 1.30-4pm - a more restorative approach to the afternoon this month

  • Saturday 15 June 10am-12.30pm - something lively for summer!

The most relaxing and recuperative break so far, with the most delicious vegetarian home-cooked food. I loved the ethos at this place, beautiful surroundings and caring, welcoming owners. Can’t wait til next year!
A wonderful holiday in every way, from the yoga teaching by Claire to the venue at Casa D’Ouro with its amazing food and all the little touches which made it a very special experience.
What a fabulous holiday! I was able to stretch my body, relax my mind and expand my circle of friends with a yoga holiday with Claire at Bellevue where I enjoyed sumptuous food, local wines and all the beauty of this fabulous countryside
I was not particularly interested in doing anything other than meditation, yoga, swimming and eating! It was perfect!
