Iceland is a Nordic island nation located in the North Atlantic Ocean and renowned for its dramatic landscape of volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields.
This yoga trip will take you away from the usual tourist hotspots, to a private farm, surrounded by mountains in the wild and remote north of Iceland. Practice daily dynamic flow yoga with Jean Hall along with lots of adventures and exploring with fascinating local hosts, so that you can truly immerse yourself in all that Iceland has to offer. Jean teaches a soulful and deep dynamic, slow flow form of yoga. She is known for her unique creative sequencing of postures which helps to draw students and teachers safely beyond limitations and closer to their true potential and confidence
October is an ideal time to watch the Northern Lights in this part of Europe and the remote location with no light pollution means that if they happen, you will have the ultimate show! The private, family owned farm includes luxury cabins gazing out onto the mountains, a traditional farmhouse, yoga barn and a bath house, where you can relax in the sauna or outdoor hot tub and admire the mountain views or book in with the incredible Amanda Tizard, who will offer massages and breath work.
A trip to this part of Iceland would not be complete without a day out in the world famous Lake Mývatn geothermal region, where all that makes Iceland so unique can be experienced within a few hours, from powerful waterfalls, volcanoes, geothermal activity and a natural spa. You can add options to hike, ride horses in the mountains with our Icelandic hosts or enjoy epic vistas while whale watching on the fjord.
The talented naturopath and retreat chef, Kim Parsons, will be creating a menu of tasty and hearty plant based meals, including dishes made with locally sourced wild herbs and nutrient dense berries. Meals will be filling and comforting to sustain you during the cold weather and the many activities during this retreat.
This trip has something for everyone. The yoga is suited for all levels and there’s a bathhouse with a sauna, hot tub and massages, so there is plenty of scope for relaxation.
