It's been a few years in the making.. but finally BeWell Longford has opened it's beautiful doors. Our purpose fitted  warehouse 'street yet chic' holistic centre sits proudly on the edge of Longford town.

Longford is a place that is generally overlooked when it comes to tourism. But here @ BeWell, we are well aware that's all set to change. With society leaning towards slow travel, sustainability and wellness inspired downtime, Longford certainly has a lot to offer.

 

Sitting less than 1.5 hours from Dublin & Galway and less than 3 hours from Belfast, Longford is located at the perfect distance for the weekend wellness seeker looking to escape the city and enjoy some downtime..without spending hours in the car.

Like many, I've travelled extensively and made lots of friends and connections on the way. I've hosted visitors in Longford from places such as Spain, Italy, Equador, Agentina all the way to Colorado...Visitors raved about a true Midlands experience with friendly people, a strong sense of community, bustling local businesses run proudly by engaging owners and families, an abundance of hidden and never overly-busy outdoor offerings and a buzzing pool of local music talent

Here @ BeWell Longford we're excited to share some of Longford's Hidden Heartlands best kept secrets with you in 2022

urban dip in/dip out retreats
 

We understand that the world has changed and the idea of a 'live-in' retreat may be slightly overwhelming for people. In a world where we are forced to distance ourselves and our contact with others it may not be so appealing to spend a weekend eating, sleeping and connecting in one place all together with a group of new people.

We have built out a safe 'urban retreat' experience for the times we are living in today.

Sleep in your own private accommodation of choice.

Arrive at the studio and outside activities by foot or by car independently.

Dip in and Dip out of Yoga and Wellness activities all weekend as you wish, at your level.

Enjoy non-movement wellness activities, gentle yoga or strong yoga...you decide

Feel safe in our absolutely stunning brand new purpose fitted Yoga Studio.

Our Yoga Studio is a large space warehouse style conversion with enough space for everyone to enjoy responsible social distancing and sanitising. We boast 100square meters + of yoga floor complete with underfloor heating.

We also have a cosy coffee corner complete with coffee, herbal teas and healthy vegan and vegetarian snacks where you can relax, connect and enjoy your spare time. Wifi is also available.

On our BeWell urban Retreats we incorporate the elements of flow, connection and ceremony deeply so that you know and feel that you have been truly immersed in a rejuvenating retreat experience during your weekend with us...

Enjoy  on your terms for the times we are in...

Emma started a yoga practice in 2008 while living a fast paced London life that was mostly frustrating, overwhelming and uninspiring! 'Yoga gave me a rare chance to slow down, become introspective and connect to my body in a way I had never experienced before.'

Over time the practice taught Emma how to have easier and steadier access to presence, awareness, intuition and self-connection. It sparked an inner shift that made her happier, more peaceful, and more in touch with the love and wisdom at each of our core.

With a dream to live a healthy, purpose-filled life in service of something bigger, she packed up her London life and embarked on her first teacher training in 2010 with Absolute Yoga in Thailand.

Since then, it has been a journey of continuous learning and growth as she expands her understanding of this age old practice. Emma completed my advanced teacher training with highly regarded international teachers Julie Martin and Emil Wendell in India in 2014, and has accumulated over 1000 hrs of training in total. She has spent years on a deeply rich and rewarding Yoga adventure, exploring various lineages and methodologies, and will always remain a student of this ever evolving practice. Emma draws from current research, somatic meditation, tantric yoga philosophy, and the many inspirational teachers, guides and mentors she has met along the way, in the hope she can offer meaningful learning experiences to her students.

 

Emma has led groups on retreats to the most beautiful and exotic destinations, shared classes in rustic Yoga shalas in India, ran workshops in slick studios in South East Asia, and trained and mentored teachers from every corner of the globe. Not only has she experienced first-hand the transformative power of this practice, but again and again she have witnessed people from all walks of life move beyond their limitations and spark a change that leads to more compassionate, awake and connected humans. 'This is the real reason why I love what I do and why I want to share it with you!'

Accomodation

To accommodate the times we are living in, our Weekend retreats are not live in retreats.

This means those attending the retreat organise their accommodation independently. We work directly with a handful of top-rated providers who can cater to your accommodation needs during your stay in Longford.
