Do you want to journey into your body to discover stabilizing strength as well as ways to release your connective tissue? Do you enjoy smooth flowing, quiet meditation and a few choice restorative poses? And do you want to make this inner journey epic by combining it with the wonders of Iceland? Then this is probably the yoga vacation for you…
Ann-Charlotte and Thor will co-teach morning classes for four days in charming Reykjavík (Friday August 16th to Monday August 19th. 8.00-10.00 am on Friday. 9-11.30 am Saturday-Monday) and the rest of the time we’ll explore the glorious Icelandic nature at the most beautiful time of year. Two day-trips are included in the price, and this is what we’ll see:
Friday we’ll spend most of the day exploring Iceland’s most extraordinary sights. We leave the city right after yoga and drive to:
· Thingvellir National Park (Unesco World Heritage Sight) to discover the serenity of Icelandic nature, the beginning of the country’s history and the meeting of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates
· Gullfoss waterfall to admire the majestic power of nature
· Geysir hot springs to experience the volcanic heat and strength of the ground underneath our feet
· Secret lagoon to slow down and relax in the healing waters of Iceland’s oldest and naturally heated pool (don’t forget your swimsuit!)
Saturday you have the option to stay in Reykjavík, to go horseback riding on Icelandic horses (not included in the price, but we’ll provide you with a link for bookings) or to visit the Kerid volcanic crater lake (this is not part of the package, but we’re going and have extra seats in the car).
Sunday is dedicated to exploring Iceland from the sea like vikings. We’ll set sail from Reykjavík in the afternoon to visit the cute puffins of Puffin Island as well as whatever mammals of the sea decide to greet us (e.g. playful dolphins, shy minke whales and impressive humpback whales).
Price for one person: 6900,- including four nights accommodation (August 15th to 19th). You also have the option to arrange your own accommodation, in which case the price is 3900,- Let us know when you book.
Included in the price: Yoga classes, Friday Golden Circle trip and Sunday sailing excursion, four nights in shared twin studio room (with kitchenette) with two single beds right next to where we practice.
Not included in the price: Meals. Plane ticket and airport transfer.
We realize that many people prefer their own space when they travel. Iceland is pricey though, so we highly recommend the shared-bedroom option, especially since sharing a room with a fellow yogi is always surprisingly cozy.
