Midnight Sun Retreat June 14 -16, 2024

Last places!

Yoga Weekend in the idyllic southwestern Finnish countryside with Liisa in the time of the white nights

 Get rid of the stress of winter with yoga and start your summer with a refreshed mind! Yoga, breathing exercises and meditation, vegetarian meals and, of course, traditional Finnish sauna!


Restorative and energizing summer start!

  • Calm but powerful yoga asana lessons. Asanas can be adapted to suit participants of different levels
  • Pranayama - breathing exercises, meditation, mindfulness
  • Get a good start to your home yoga routine for the rest of the summer!
  • With normal basic condition and an open mind, even a beginner can keep up. Those who have been practicing yoga for long time will deepen their own practice and certainly gain new perspectives and ideas
  • We will stay in a beautifully restored, working farm in the southwest Finland countryside, Kansjerfin kulttuuritila, in Raasepori. We will be served high-quality vegetarian food and there's possibility to enjoy traditional Saturday evening wood fired sauna. You will have a chance to learn to know the domestic animals of the farm!  https://kulttuuritila.fi/palvelut/ (in Finnish)

One of the themes and purposes of this retreat is to learn about ourselves and cultivate the conscious awareness. This means that we will also study asanas carefully, not just "do something somehow". The classes are based on Iyengar yoga principles with careful alignment of the individual body, as well as more simple hatha yoga style. During my 20 years of teaching, I have developed an intuitive feeling of the group and its' needs, as well as designed my own yoga based exercises. Every class is different, depending on the energy and level of the group and there will be something for everyone. We will start with easy going classes but there will be strong and calm Iyengar style classes, more flowing classes as well as (semi)restorative classes. Yoga system, how to deal with our body, mind and energy, will be integrated in the lessons and we might talk a bit about other aspects of the yoga philosophy as well.


The retreat is open for all levels but the basic knowledge of asanas and moderate condition would be helpful. The retreat is for 6-8 persons only to ensure the private attention to everyone.
