Our August 2017 "Heart of Yoga" retreat will be held at Greenstones, on Flatön. Greenstones is an eco-friendly retreat centre set in the pristine coastal hinterland of the west coast archipelago of Sweden. The natural setting fosters a deeper connection to the natural world and to your true self.
This is an opportunity to encounter parts of the yoga tradition not normally explored in a typical yoga class. You will be involved in a powerfully transformative full moon fire ceremony, be given your own personal sanskrit mantra and experience a gentle introduction to the art of noble silence for some parts of the retreat.
This retreat is for people who have some experience with yoga practice (any style, any tradition).
Places limited to 14 participants only.
