19. march – 21. march 2021
We invite you to spend a special weekend with yoga and meditation on Fleinvær, an island in Northern Norway with spectacular landscape which is a perfect place for connecting to the nature elements and diving deeper into the existence.
A great part of the experience, and your home for the weekend is the The Arctic hideaway, a real gem of a place which brings together minimalistic architecture and raw nature.
During your stay you will have a chance to start days with a cold sea bath and wood fired sauna. You will learn how to meditate more efficiently and establish or deepen your meditation practice. You will be guided in Strala yoga, a popular yoga style which combines elements of yoga, thai chi and natural movement. There will also be enough time to soak in the nature and simply contemplate on life.
As the weekend falls on the Spring equinox, which celebrates spring as a symbol of new life and new beginnings, this will be a perfect time for you to introduce new practices and set new intentions for your life.
Make time to simply BE.
Strala yoga is a movement system which has been gaining popularity all over the world the last couple of years.

From then on she has been leading offered Strala yoga classes at Northern Norway. In 2018 she started to arrange yoga weekends in Norway.
She likes the idea of guiding people into a blissful experience using tools as yoga, ice bathing and natural desserts. She loves to feed everyone around with home made chocolate.
