Sunday: Individual arrival in Akureyri & Welcome Yoga
Welcome to your Yoga & Spa Retreat in Iceland! We recommend you to plan your arrival in Akureyri for the early afternoon, so that you have time to settle in and rest or perhaps enjoy a first stroll around the charming town center of Akureyri. In the afternoon (4 pm) the group meets up with our Yoga teacher Ulrica at the beautifully located Retreat Center for a warm welcome, a yoga introduction class and meditation.
Monday: Connect with animals
We start the day with an energizing Yoga flow at our Retreat Center. In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to encounter a typical Icelandic character: the Icelandic horse. Many of our visitors are fascinated by the grace and strength of those beautiful animals. You can connect with the horses and enjoy a horse riding trip through the scenic nature of the fjord. A whale watching tour by boat can be a great option for those who dont want to take part in the horseriding activity.
Tuesday: Yoga & Healing
After an inspiring Yoga class in the morning we welcome you to surrender and let go in the afternoon in our cozy and modern Spa area. Relax your muscles and body in the healing warmth of our Sauna and the outdoor jacuzzi, enjoy a good book in our comfortable chairs in the relaxation room and soak in the breathtaking senery that surrounds you! Pamper yourself with the healing effects of a complimentary massage treatment from our therapist.
Wednesday: Myvatn – the highlight on every tourists bucket list
Start the day with a 3 hour yoga class that gives you the chance to improve your asanas, your flow and breathng and go deep into your practise. In the early afternoon we start for a special adventure: today’s excursion brings you to the majestic area around Myvatn, a popular highlight and must see! Here you can experience the volcanic and geothermal energy of Iceland face to face and feel the power of nature. Geothermal activity has shaped a surreal landscape of bizarre lava formations, craters and rocks. After exploring the area we relax in the turquoise blue waters of the popular Myvatn Nature Bath. Swimming inmidst of black lava rocks – truly amazing.
Thursday: Yoga & Healing
After our exciting trip to Myvatn yesterday you will be able to balance and integrate your experience with a lot of YIN elements today. As every day we start out with our in-depth yoga class, where Ulrica will guide you through asanas, flows and breathing practises. In the afternoon you will have another massage appointment and you will be able to enjoy the healing effects of touch and the caring attention of our therapist. Complete your afternoon with a visit to our sauna and a dip in our outdoor jacuzzi.
In the evening you are invited to the farewell dinner at our home!
Friday: Yoga, SPA & Departure
Lets enjoy our last intense morning yoga session of this retreat! By now you might realize the progress you have made throughout the daily 3 hour practises and the beautiful effect yoga has on our body and mind! The afternoon is free to explore the town of Akureyri, the botanical garden, to go souvenir shopping or mix with the locals. You are as well invited to use our Spa area for a relaxing afternoon if that is what your body is asking for. Then it’s time for your individual departure and an icelandic „bless bless“.
