Retreat in the Baltic Sea archipelago 11-18.7-2021.
Yoga and the beautiful Baltic Sea! Get inspired and charge your batteries in an intensive yoga-meditation-pranayama -retreat on a small island, in the clean and quiet archipelago of southwest Finland.
Our days will start in silence with meditation/visualisations and pranayama (breathing), followed by an asana class, in strong and precise yoga style, based on Iyengar yoga, and more simple Hatha -styles (2,5h total). After the morning class, there will be brunch and free time. Before the dinner, there is another asana class (1,5h). An old traditional, wood-heated sauna by the sea will be heated every second evening. There is a kayak, canoe and rowing boats in our use.
More information coming up later but you can always ask more from Liisa. Retreat is already open for registrations!
Yoga in Lapland (Finland) and by the Arctic Ocean (Norway)
Coming up in summer 2021!
A truly unique yoga retreat for the nature loving yogis! Yoga, pranayama and meditation surrounded by the wilderness. In the first part of the course we will stay in Inari 300km above the Arctic Circle in the Finnish Lapland by the beautiful wilderness lake. We have two daily long yoga classes and in your free time you can explore the surrounding nature. For the last two nights we will move even more north, to the Arctic Ocean in Norway. There we will stay directly by the ocean in a tiny fishing village by the Varanger fjord, which is famous from it's birdlife.
This is a course for yoga enthusiastic and the true nature lovers, people with a flexible mind, who embrace the wild nature and long walks and don't mind sometimes a bit harsh conditions and changing plans and schedules. For a small group of max.7 participants only! The accommodation is basic but very cozy and clean, in 1-2 persons rooms in homely cottages in a real Northern style.
During the course, there will be plenty of yoga, (based on iyengar and hatha styles), meditation and pranayama (breathing practice), home-cooked vegetarian meals, and of course a unique chance to enjoy the arctic nature, silence and white nights. We will stay by the beautiful lake and will have rowing boats in our use and you can rent a canoe for the further adventures. One afternoon we will make a day hike to the close by fell to admire the view over the lakes and wilderness, and of course you have a change to try out the sauna by the beach.
For the three last nights, we travel to 300km more north to the amazingly beautiful Arctic Ocean, Varanger area in Norway, famous of its' birdlife and beautiful nature. We will heat the sauna and of course you will have a chance to swim in the ocean!
The dates for the summer 2021 are still open. Either in the first week of August or in June! I hope to be able to confirm this soon.
