The North West Yoga Festival will give everyone the chance to practice poses among fresh natural surroundings of the Isle of Doagh this June.

The North West Yoga Festival is a celebration of yoga in Donegal, Derry and the North West of Ireland. It will be a gathering of teachers and students for an afternoon of all styles of yoga in the beautiful Isle of Doagh on Sunday 11th June 2017.

This is a charity event and money raised through public admissions will go to the designated charities for 2017 – Action for Hope and Lightitupgold Childhood Cancer Foundation.

The Isle of Doagh Famine Village either gives yogis the option to practice on a stunning beach or near the sand dunes. If the weather isn’t in your favour, the lessons will move indoors to the main hall of the Doagh Famine Village or a marquee.

Just think- sun salutations to the setting sun with the serene sounds of waves all around… breathing in fresh sea air as you sprawl out in a Savasana on the sand!

The event was founded by yoga teachers Aisling Friel and Odel Mac Monagle – two vibrant women with a passion for yoga, health and wellness. This is the second year of the festival in Donegal.

There is going to be a dedicated Tir na nOg area for kids to practice yoga and get their first introduction to mind-body wellness and positivity. Parents and older siblings are welcome to join in with the fun yoga sessions too.

This family friendly day will surely be the start of a great summer in the beautiful surrounds of Inishowen. Visit to learn about all the teachers visitors will meet on the day, as well as an exclusive peek at the stalls and entertainment you’ll find.
