Program

What is Kundalini yoga?

Just like any yoga class, you can expect to be downward dogging and planking, but what sets Kundalini yoga apart from other types of yoga is its focus on using your breath to harness energy within you. Through meditation, chanting, and singing, Kundalini yoga enhances your practice by promoting more self-awareness and stillness.

On this retreat, Christina will be your teacher in Kundalini yoga. Discover what Kundalini yoga can do for you and how it can provide you with more energy.

What is Mindfulness yoga?

This is a deeply relaxing yoga class, with mindfulness of body, breath and movement threaded throughout. If you ever feel anxious, nervous, over-busy, stressed and tight in the body, this class will help you to breathe more deeply, settle your mind, find more ease in your body, and relax. Each class will include breathing exercises, yoga postures and mindful movement, ending each time with a generous period of guided relaxation and rest.

During the days of your retreat, Arjen will provide you with all kinds of tools to live stronger and more balanced.

Location

Särna is a small village in the middle of the vast wilderness of North Dalarna. The village is also the gateway to the mountains and the Fulufjället National Park where Sweden’s highest waterfall is located and the world’s oldest spruce grows, named Old Tjikko. The Big Five of Scandinavia live in this unique nature: bears, wolves, moose, lynx and wolverines. North of Särna, reindeer roam near the beautiful and unique mountain, the Städjan.
