Mon, Aug 20, 12:00 - Mon, Aug 27, 12:00
Welcome to join us on this unique and magical Yoga & Meditation retreat starting August 20 until 27
During this week we will be practicing Yoga, relaxation and Meditation guided by devoted and professional teachers who have decades of experience both through their own practice and in teaching.
Visit and explore some of the most beautiful sights and places on Iceland. Do a Sweat Lodge Ceremony and so much more.
A week to leave you recharged and inspired for a long time.
8 days filled with yoga, meditation, fresh air, clean water and breathtaking nature.
Teaching yoga from the Hatha and Raja yoga systems which in themselves involve meditation practices we’ll come out of this week like newborns, cleansed and recharged from the gross (the physical body) to the subtle (the mind in all its aspects).
Included is a Sweat lodge evening guided by a truly experienced and remarkable woman, Laila Awad
Along with the above, we’ll also hold Shamanic drum journeys and fire ceremonies guided by Olafia and Kristina. These are all journeys to lead ‘within’. Outer journeys will also be taken as we visit some of the most breathtaking places of nature in Iceland. Like the black beaches, waterfalls and more. This land is still the dwelling place of Elves, Trolls, and Fairies. If you’re lucky and chosen they might reveal themselves to you! This can be in your sleep, during meditation but also in rare cases in broad daylight :-).
All in all this journey will recharge the participants on all levels, body, mind, and spirit.
Invigorate, inspire, cleanse, rest in order to be more able to live a balanced and joyful life.
The meals served will be vegetarian, nourishing and tasty, prepared by our Masterchef Matsyendra with the help of Savitri Puri and Monica Padma Shakti.
Yoga Nidra and Ajapa jap meditation from the Tantric tradition will be part of our everyday practise.
