Our Ethos is centered around You.

Blackhill Woods Yoga Retreats ethos is to share a light hearted, down to Earth, connected yoga community, one where you can be yourself and one you can really feel a part of. We offer Online Yoga Classes, Studio classes and Yoga Retreats all set in the beautiful grounds of our home and your haven, Blackhill Woods Retreat in Abbeyleix, Co. Laois, Ireland. This space aims to give you the flexibility and freedom to practice yoga your way, in your own time, giving you the simple tools to live a more balanced life.

We warmly welcome and value every one of our Yogis! The only time to start is now!

We, Simon & Eilish are a couple of yogis with nearly 20 years teaching practice between us, but it took a lockdown for us to go online. We know the difference yoga can make to your day and your life and are here to support you on your yoga journey. To suit your needs we have just what you are looking for whether in the virtual or real world.

Through your yoga practice you can feel more at home in your body, quieten the busy mind, tune into the wisdom of your heart and find more balance in your life.

We know how intimidating online yoga and studios can be so we have created this nurturing, relaxed, supportive space with your needs in mind, to discover yoga at your pace, your level, online, in person, whichever way suits you best, a real tonic for the soul.

Designed for you to let go of the stresses of modern day life, to carve out some valuable ‘you time’, to be active, be still, practice yoga, breathe, relax, to be yourself or just be. 

Whether its a quick and energetic Yoga Burst Class, a deeply relaxing Yin Yoga Reset or a Full Weekend Residential Yoga Retreat, Blackhill Woods has you covered. We have classes ranging from very active to very calming, quick fixes to deep dives. Our Online Library gives you the choice making it easy as your time and energy are precious. We cater to the stage you are at from novices to ninjas, we have something for you! 

Our combination of Online Yoga Classes, Studio Classes and Yoga Retreats are all there foryou, to make you feel you are part of a real community, one you can connect with as much or as little as you like. Blackhill Woods gives you the space and tools needed for enhancing your quality of life,creating more smiles, more clarity, more energy and more time to be who you want to be. We could all do with a bit more of that!

We are here to support you through all of life’s changes and to reclaim your vitality, tune in to your real essence and potential.

We look forward to welcoming you and practising with you,


Simon & Eilish
