The Yoga Barn Retreat






Yoga Classes, Workshops, and Retreats in the beautiful rolling hills of the Kilkenny countryside.

Hi  Yogis

We have great news.
Classes are resuming from Monday 17th May and we will be running our Day Retreats again from Sunday 13th June.
We have been very busy over the year since we last saw you and we have been making lots of improvements to The Yoga Barn which we are looking forward to sharing with you. As some of you will already know we have a new Studio in the place where we had the Marquee last year, overlooking the beautiful valley. This is much larger and enables us to achieve better social distancing practices. We have a number of other projects underway, which include our organic gardens, which should provide the majority of the ingredients for our retreat lunches., a new dining area, and today, we installed a woodburning Sauna ( and have just tried out).  The labyrinth has become established over the last year and is now just coming into its own again, with bluebells and other wildflowers starting to appear in the long grass.


Hope you are all well and we look forward to seeing you on the mat.

Much love and light

The Yoga Barn Retreat is located at the  Ballymagill Ark which is a restored ‘clochán’ or Irish stone village.  Situated in an almost secret location at the end of a tree-lined boreen in the beautiful rolling hills of  South Kilkenny. Surrounded by green fields and nature with clean clear air and big skies the Yoga Barn breathes peace, calm, and tranquility. Set in these fine rural surroundings, but close to the M9 Motorway, Kilkenny, Waterford, New Ross, and the beautiful town of Inistioge, The Yoga Barn is a special place, hosting classes, workshops, and retreats. The new purpose built studio,  is light and airy, with high ceilings, kept cosy and warm by a wood-burning stove and underfloor heating supplied by a ground sourced heat pump. We look forward to welcoming you.
