Cultural and Yoga Journey in Finland
This incredible 5-day retreat is a holistic journey to transform you with movement, nourishing local food and endless nature. You will not only have the opportunity to improve (or start) your yoga practice, but you will also have the advantage of spending time to enjoy the healing power of nature in the midst of the beautiful Finnish forest.
Throughout your journey, you will connect to all five senses with different creative workshops & activities such as foraging, baking with self-picked goodies, cold-heat exposure and breathwork. You will be held in a safe space together with 10 souls allowing you to let go from your daily routines and give yourself the chance to deeply surrender to your transformation.
Have you ever heard about any Finnish traditions? We will introduce you to some special ones, like the midsummer fire and its celebration. Of course there will be no way around the well-known sauna culture and its benefits to your body and soul. Experience first hand with your own eyes one of the countries where the sun never goes down. This occasion invites us to jump into the water for midnight dips in the lake and hot tub sessions underneath a clear white sky.
Let us get together for a lifetime experience during the season of midsummer in a peaceful stone age old village close to many lakes and the ocean coast. And learn more about your female body and its ability to move, breathe and enjoy time in nature and its healing power. A time where it seems like time is standing still.
We would be honored to guide you through a one of a kind experience in our home, Finland!
