We started the Houtskari Summer Retreats with Juha in 2000. The archipelago between Finland and Sweden is stunning in the summertime. Sauna in the morning and evening gives a special Finnish vibe for the retreat as well as a delicious vegetarian meals.
It is easy to get there with the bus or car even if the trip takes about 5 hours from Helsinki. There is a bus stop right in the front of the resort. The Näsby town with harbor, shops, old church, museums and restaurants are 10 min walking distance away. The local language is Swedish (or Finnish-Swedish) but many locals also speak Finnish and English fluently.
The dates and schedule are still in process..but we are prepared to teach in Houtskari for two or three weeks from the beginning of July.
The retreat is family friendly with children yoga classes and activities. Yoga is taught also for the beginners and teenagers.
This is highly recommended for everyone who want to spend a peaceful and uplifting yoga holiday in a beautiful environment.
More information soon..
Petri and Juha
