TV Chef, Erica Drum, and Yoga Teacher & Sacred Ceremony Facilitator, Lucybloom Webb, have joined forces and announced an exclusive female-only Yoga Feed Equinox Escape at the luxurious five-star Killary Lodge in the wilds of Connemara. Their restorative rural retreat will run for three nights, from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th September 2023.
Located within a nature lover’s paradise on the shores of Ireland’s only fjord, the spacious, modern, and nordic-inspired Killary Lodge frames some of the most dramatic scenery in the country, including the Maumturk and Twelve Ben mountain ranges. In these serene surroundings, Erica and Lucybloom’s new Yoga Feed Equinox Escape will offer guests a true getaway from the reality of their busy everyday lives and the chance to connect with a close-knit circle of like-minded women. The raw beauty of Connemara will provide attendees with an inner sense of wellbeing and a nurturing space in which to disconnect, and reconnect.
From immersive indoor yoga workshops to relaxing scenic saunas, invigorating sea swims, back to nature hikes, hands-on cookery classes, and guided outdoor fire pit ceremonies, all of the dynamic duo’s Yoga Feed experiences have been specially designed to nourish mind, body, and soul. Every element of their exclusive Equinox Escape has been carefully considered and taken care of to remove any stress and maximise rest and relaxation during your stay. All guests need to bring is themselves, swimming togs, some rain gear (just in case), and an open mind!

Commenting on what guests can expect to experience at the Yoga Feed’s Equinox Escape, Founder & Yoga Teacher, Lucybloom Webb, said: “We have designed this escape to bring women back to their centre. You may find that you are constantly giving energy out to all of the demands in your life, and it can feel like a swinging pendulum. Over this weekend, through movement, stillness, ritual and feast, our aim is to create that space for you to nurture and return to yourself. This is crucial to our creative process and to move out into the world feeling inspired.”
The Autumn Equinox was an important marker on the calendar of our ancestors and it is widely recognised as a period for reflection as we begin our inward spiral to the darker months. Central to the Equinox Escape experience will be a guided outdoor fire pit and cleansing ceremony at sunrise (6.50am) on Saturday 23rd September, facilitated by Lucybloom Webb in honour of the Autumnal Equinox; one of two points in the year when the sun illuminates the northern and southern hemispheres equally.
Each day of the retreat she will also host immersive indoor yoga workshops specialising in embodiment, healing, and inner growth. Her sessions will be suitable for yogis of all levels, from beginners all the way through to the more advanced, and be tailored to help attendees move beyond their overactive minds in order to see beyond and gain clarity. These sessions will be used to balance your internal rhythm of masculine and feminine. In order to regulate the nervous system properly, it’s crucial to take time to settle, be still, move at your own pace and be inspired – in other words, making space for the feminine within to be expressed.
Those lucky enough to secure themselves one of the seventeen spots available on the exclusive Escape will also enjoy nature hikes within the 185-acre estate and a relaxing steam session in the Lodge’s own private sauna while sitting back and taking in uninterrupted views of the Fjord and Mweelrea mountain. And, its close proximity to the sea means that a fresh dip in the crystal clear waters for an invigorating wild swimming experience in the calm of Connemara is only a few steps away.
Catering By The Conscious Cook:
Nourishment throughout the getaway will be provided onsite by talented TV Chef, Erica Drum, aka The Conscious Cook, who will create freshly prepared wholesome vegetarian-focused meals and snacks throughout the day that cater for all special dietary requirements. From the Lodge’s fully-equipped beautiful bespoke kitchen, she will also host hands-on cookery classes showcasing the West’s wealth of locally produced, seasonal, and foraged foods. In line with her sustainable ethos and to ensure that the escape has as little impact on the local environment as possible, Erica’s menus will all be planned with a zero waste approach in mind.
Rural Rest & Relaxation:
Having fed your mind, body, and soul surrounded by nature, come the end of each day, where else would you want to be than relaxing outdoors on the terrace by the fire pit enjoying sunset over the magnificent Killary Fjord? And, for those wanting to grab some alone time during their stay, the spacious 6,000 sq metre coastal cabin provides plenty of cosy little nooks and hideaways that you can disappear off to at your leisure – ideal for kicking back with a good book!
Luxury Five-star Accommodation:
After all of your exertions, a good night’s sleep in the comfort of the luxurious Lodge is pretty much guaranteed. It contains ten spacious individually designed en suite rooms, complete with bespoke features and rainforest showers that can be easily configured to suit your individual requirements.
