Yoga & Kayak
Retreat

JULY 26t - 29th

 

At this retreat we join forces with Maitri Nature Yoga in Oldedalen and create another long weekend with yoga practice and kayak paddling. During the long weekend you´ll have the opportunity to spend a lot of time outside in the fresh air; hiking in the mountains, kayaking at the lake Oldenvatnet, meditating in nature, bouldering at Melkevoll Bretun or just relaxing. We meet up every morning and evening for yoga classes, relaxation, music and sharing. In the afternoon the sauna is warm and you can enjoy refreshing ice baths in the river outside the sauna. We serve healthy nourishing food for brunch and dinner.
