Join us once again on our annual New Years Yoga Iceland Form + Focus retreat, in 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.
