Middsummer Yoga Retreat in Sweedish Lapland
Everybody needs a little time away. Escape daily routines and outer demands, and encounter the joy of Ashtanga Yoga, Meditation and Self-discovery in nature’s perfect setting: Swedish Lapland.
Here, in the Land of the Midnight Sun, you will find the ultimate combination of relaxation and adventure, letting you deepen your knowledge and enhance your connection to practice.
Encounter wilderness and possibly the purest air youâ€™ll ever breathe; indulge in plenty of the things that are in scarce supply elsewhere: time, space, tranquillity, silence, clean water and bright, magical midsummer nights.
This 7 day retreat offers Ashtanga Yoga classes for all levels (beginners, intermediate and advanced), under the guidance of Petri Räisänen. Petri will be accompanied in the shala withWambui Njuguna and Aksana Kurola. Passionate about yogic food, Fredrik Gabrielsson will be the retreat chef, specializing in super delicious Western, Indian and Thai food! All recipes are vegetarian or vegan with plenty of raw food options.
We invite you to enjoy your Yoga practice in one of the most quietly healing Yoga shalas around, a wooden chapel with large windows which display the natural beauty of the surroundings, with the midsummer sun radiating its goodness for all.
The perfect relaxing yoga holiday, a retreat with a difference!
Yoga can be an effective and beneficial tool for reaching a more peaceful state of mind, managing stress better and getting physically fit. Our workshops and retreats are designed for people with normal physical and mental conditions. If you are on medication, are currently taking (or have taken) therapy and/or counseling, or have any known mental condition(s) that would in any way hinder your participation in a workshop or retreat, please let us, and your doctor/therapist know before registering. We do not provide any specialists at our workshops/retreats who would be able to help, should the need arise. If a student’s behavior causes disruption for other workshop participants and the teachers, it is requested that he or she stop participating in the workshop and seek appropriate help. In such a situation, we do not offer refunds, but are available to provide any documents necessary for insurance claims.
