Information about our studio:
Ard Nahoo is a family business, run by Noeleen Tyrrell and Brendan Murphy, who live here with their sons, Daragh and Eoin. We have been open since June 2001, and have grown from a relatively small health farm to an award winning eco retreat.
The business began when Noeleen was pregnant with Daragh, and wanted to move her therapeutic business from Sligo to Ard Nahoo, where they had been living for seven years. After converting the main house from a three walled ruin (and shifting the cows that had taken residence) they moved their attention on to the barn, which is now the main building. Over the years this has grown from an old stone structure to a fantastic centre, with two treatment rooms, a green room, changing area, yoga studio and Uisce Area.
2007 saw us undertake a massive renovation. As well as extending the health farm to include a new yoga studio and indoor/outdoor wet area, we built two new Eco Cabins. The build was conducted using green principles under the guidance of a fantastic architect, Peter Cowman (www.livingarchitecture.com). We used sustainable cedar from neighbouring county Donegal, hemp insulation, limited concrete, no petro chemicals and natural paints throughout. All Eco Cabins are heated using pellet stoves, and come with an underground recycling facility. Compost bins are collected regularly and very welcome on our organic vegetable patch!
In 2008 we were used as a case study by Failte Ireland in their report ‘Review of Environmental Good Policy and Practice in the Tourism Industry’. Catherine Mack also included us as a case study in her excellent book Ecoescapes Ireland.

Here at Ard Nahoo, we take a holistic approach to yoga. Our focus is on the therapeutic qualities of yoga, in all of its limbs, and the benefits it can bring to each and every one of us.
We offer yoga classes, yoga teacher training 200hr and 300/500hr and yoga retreats.
