The peaceful, restorative powers of the island create a perfect environment in which to attend a yoga or meditation retreat. Every year the island hosts a number of different yoga and meditation teachers who run weekend and week-long retreats along different themes.

As people leave their cars on the mainland and step onto the ferry, they can begin to soak up the peace and wildness of this magical place. In addition to the classes, the combination of the sea air, walks on the beach, kayaking the wild open beauty of Roaringwater Bay, the company of island cows and healthy doses of laughter, create a uniquely healing experience.

Retreats generally take place at Heir Island Retreat, and when the weather suits outside overlooking the bay. Accommodation is provided in island cottages.
