Kråkeslottet Senja, 30. November – 2. December 2018
Another exciting weekend retreat packed with powerful self care tools. Revitalise your body and mind with yoga and meditation. Indulge yourself with nourishing food, hot chocolate, sauna and time to rest.
During this weekend we will focus on enjoying the winter rather then surviving it. We will practice gaining and conserving energy through yoga, meditation and ice bathing (optional, but to be recommended). We will introduce some efficient tools for how to stay connected, strong and bright no matter how dark the winter gets.
Strala yoga which we will be practising during the weekend, was developed in NYC as a fusion of yoga, dance and thai chi. Inspired by nature, Strala is a dynamic and organic yogaform which invites you to move how it feels natural for you, while providing structure, guidance and safety. The goal is to cultivate ease and grace in your yoga and life, feel uplifted and grounded.
Move like water, fueled by your breath.
Meditation is another amazing tool which helps you tune in, feel and create balance in your body and mind. We will use different meditation techniques: connecting to the nature elements, activating different energy areas in your body, as well as some exciting exercises in couples.
Ice bathing and sauna
Cold water and hot sauna are the ultimate energy boosters and relaxation agents. As the house is literally standing on the sea, we will have many opportunities to dip in the cold water as well as relax in wood fired sauna afterwards. You will be given introduction to ice bathing and learn about its revitalising properties. Read more about the topic here.
Food is in important part of the experience and self care is an essential part of yoga.
During the retreat we will serve delicious, simple and healthy meals three times a day. Breakfasts consist of oat porridge with different toppings like fruits, berries, nuts, seeds, honey, chocolate etc., and delicious smoothie bowls. Dinner is prepared from local mostly organic ingredients: root vegetables, high quality fish, freshly harvested seaweeds. Lunches are for barley waffles and home made bread with various spreads of your choice. (Vegetarian or vegan options will be available on demand.:)
