Yoga Retreats in Finland 2022
Retreat in the Baltic Sea archipelago 10-17.7.2022
Yoga by 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.
A true retreat in a beautiful place, staying in an old Art Nouveau -villa by the sea! Classes will be held just across the yard in a modern building made for yoga. The group will be small to ensure the private attention to everyone and also give space to everyone. The rooms are for 1-2 persons.
The retreat is open for all levels but the basic knowledge of asanas would be helpful. Our days will start in silence with meditation/visualisation and pranayama (breathing), followed by asana class (2-2,5h total). After the morning class, there will be brunch and free time to explore the island or rest. Before the dinner, there is another, a bit slower paced class (1,5h). The classes will be based in strong and precise yoga style (based on Iyengar yoga principles), as well as more simple hatha -style. Every class is different, depending on the energy and level of the group. There will be something for everyone. We will also chat a bit about yoga philosophy and history.
An old traditional, wood-heated sauna by the sea will be heated every second evening. There is a canoe and rowing boats in our use. There will be vegan home-cooked meals, mainly organic and many ingredients are coming from surrounding farms.
The retreat price for the summer 2022 will be confirmed later in the year 2021 (old price was 1090€). You can sign up and secure your place by paying 100€ non-refundable registration fee. If the retreat has to be cancelled because of the covid-19 restrictions, or it is cancelled by the organiser because of any other reasons (not enough participants etc), the reservation fee will be paid back.
There are few rooms for one person only. Please let me know, if you would like to stay in one of those. First come first serve!
Price does not include the trips and insurances. Accommodation fee will be paid separately but is calculated to the total price. When needed, there's a possibility for a group taxi (separate fee) from Salo railway station to our location.
