EXPLORE ICELAND'S WILDERNESS AND POWERFUL VOLCANIC NATURE!
Join me for a once-in-a-lifetime yoga retreat in Iceland, one of the most breathtaking places in the world.
Hotel Husafell is a retreat center located in Borgarfjordur, Western Iceland, approx. 1.5 hours by car from Reykjavik. This volcanic oasis was built in accordance with its natural surroundings and offers simple luxury and comfort. Meditate and practice yoga every day, and soak in the hotel's geothermal hot springs after exploring Icelandic nature and volcanic wonders on the hiking trails around the hotel.
This retreat's yoga and meditation focus is mindfulness, and how to maintain a moment-by-moment awareness of thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environments. Mindfulness also involves acceptance and paying attention to arising thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel. Awareness tunes into the present moment rather than letting thoughts rehash the past or imagining the future.
Each morning will begin with a short meditation followed by an invigorating yoga class where we explore the principles of the eight limbs path of yoga. Practice will be approx. 1.5 h. followed by breakfast.
Meet again mid-morning for short talks on yogic philosophy, Ayurvedic principles and other important information on yoga and meditation. This is also a great opportunity to discuss any questions that may arise during practice, or the retreat in general.
After lunch, there will be plenty of time for adventures or relaxation and afternoon restorative yoga will relax your muscles in time for a dinner.
*this is a suggested schedule and Barbara may adjust the daily routine according to weather and/or the group.
Wether you are a beginner or already practice Yoga or Meditation on a regular basis, this is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the practice and retreat to a peaceful and nourishing environment.
My focus during the Iceland Retreat will be the exploration of the principles of the eight limb path (Ashtanga) of Yoga.
Through detailed exploration and explanation of the key "ingredients" of breath and posture this ancient tradition will be accessible for every level practitioner.
No matter what the day brings, my intention is to combine the healing and restorative qualities of Yoga with meditation and adventures in nature so you can go home satisfied and saturated.
Hiking is the perfect activity for the Iceland Retreat and allows you to experience Iceland's powerful nature first hand.
Let your mind to wander, explore the hotel's surroundings on foot, breath fresh air and refresh your mind and body throughout these nature walks.
