The School of Chill 

 

There are times in everyone’s lives when the stresses of everyday existence come to a head. Frustrating co-workers, over-active children and general day to day all lead to misalignment of the mind, and can result in exhaustion, ill health and ultimately, a burn-out. It’s at times like these when you need to go back to basics and commit a bit of time to re-connecting to your inner-self and start with you! Me-time! 

Whether you are a mindfulness newbie, want to learn a new skill or or a yoga-pro, well-being is at the core. Whether a few days or a day dedicated entirely to your own wellness is now practically an essential part of modern-day living, The Kinsale Experience Company offers a wealth of mindful & spiritual experiences & learning workshops to make sure you and the crew just get that perfect slice of time out and learning.
