EAT.PRAY.MOVE Yoga Iceland Form + Focus Retreat, 28th December – 2nd January 2018

Join us once again on our annual New Years retreat to the land of Fire & Ice! It’s the perfect way to ring in 2018 with adventure, amazing sites, wellness and creativity! Our day trips will allow us to experience the many unique landscapes and activities that this area has to offer. We will take a tour through Iceland’s famous Golden Circle which will include the main stops on the route, such as the waterfall Gullfoss (meaning “golden falls”), and the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.

Though Geysir has been inactive for a long time, Strokkur, on the other hand, continues to erupt at every 5-10 minute intervals. We will also have time to explore our home for the week – the capital city of Reykjavik – to see some sites, take a walking tour, have some free-time to shop, see more of the Icelandic design, or relax before our dinner in town! A day in the village of Hveragerði will allow guests to see more of this thermal water capital and even visit various sites and thermal parks.

And a trip to Iceland wouldn’t be complete without a day at the Blue Lagoon with its healing waters, silica masks, unparalleled views, and overall spa experience! Each night we’ll stand watch for the glorious, and sometime elusive, Northern Lights – this natural phenomenon is on so many people’s bucket lists and it’s the perfect time to catch a sighting!

We are so excited to continue this special collaboration with Julian Hyzler from EASEL&LENS to combine a look at creative focus with art projects in travel journal creation throughout the week, as a mindfulness practice, to help us see and experience more presently, the new sites around us. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find a creative way of focus on our excursions through Iceland’s amazing landscape. No previous art or yoga background required. All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating and personal experience.

Day Trips

Guided Tour of Golden Circle (Geysir, Gullfoss, Thingvellir National Park)
Day in Reykjavik
Visit with lunch and horse show at organic Icelandic greenhouse
Night thermal spa visit with dinner and “rye bread experience”
Day at Blue Lagoon
New Year’s Eve celebration

Teacher

Certified yoga instructor and EPM founder, Erin Lewis, will facilitate the classes, helping each student focus on improving their practice and gaining new insights into their bodies and movements. She’s studied various types of yoga disciplines since 1998, concentrating on the Ashtanga discipline since 2008. She received her teacher certification in Florence, Italy and has continued her education with various specialty certifications throughout the years. She now combines powerful movements with more anatomical-based core vinyasa flow and restorative movement in her personal practice and teaching style.

Cuisine

Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast and dinner daily, as well as selected lunches. Seafood options are also offered on selected meals during this sea-focused location. We’ve carefully chosen delicious and fresh meals from renowned restaurants and chefs which will give guests an expansive experience of the cuisine. Our dinners will include a few multi-course tasting menus at the hotel’s Satt restaurant emphasizing honest, healthy, and delicious Icelandic food, or at restaurants in the city.

Accommodation

Our home for the week will be a nordic adventure in the hub of the Icelandic culture and capital city of Reykjavik. We’ll stay at a beautiful certified “green” spa hotel in the center and get a wonderful relaxing welcome to this amazing country where we’ll have front row seats to the food, art, and history of the “land of fire and ice”. The completely renovated Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura embodies the spirit of Reykjavik with a nature-and-wellness theme. This retreat includes upgraded “Art Rooms”, as well as access to an executive lounge, daily spa passes, and are decorated with beloved and distinguished Icelandic artists. Enjoy samples of their art, biographies, and artist’s pictures on display. The Art rooms are tastefully decorated and offer all the amenities you would expect.

The Soley Natura Spa is an on-premises high class facility featuring Iceland’s only indoor hotel geothermal spa pool, Finnish saunas, fitness facilities, and spa treatments. With the unique proximity to Reykjavik’s wooded areas of Oskjuhlid Hill, guests of the Icelandair Reykjavik Natura Hotel can take advantage of the walking paths to explore the surrounding lava and seacoast landscapes.

The yoga classes were a relaxed start into an amazing day, accessible and deeply enjoyable for all levels of practitioners. The perfect mix for discovering an amazingly intriguing country.
