join us and re-charge yourself!
The daily life can often seem like a cycle of waking up, eating, working, sleeping and repeating.
Join us and re-charge your mind and body diving deeper into the fantastic world of yoga, mindfulness and sailing in one of the most spectacular areas in the world.
Yoga creates mental clarity and calmness, increases body awareness, relieves chronic stress patterns, relaxes the mind, centres attention, and sharpens your concentration.
Join us and re-charge yourself in a retreat like no other.
Sailing in UNESCO landscape, meditating in several hundred-year-old buildings, discovering emblematic and special places and connecting with yourself and others in a nature beyond scale.
That is why we believe it is
THE UNMATCHED YOGA RETREAT.
THE RETREAT TEAM
The retreat will be guided by three amazing souls. Céline, Maria & Ulrik.
Céline will be guiding you through your meditation and yoga journey. She will lead you through the wonders of meditation and yoga and balance the elements into a perfect union.
Maria will serve nutritious and delicious vegan and vegetarian plates from many corners of the world. She loves to prepare dishes from Asia, Middle East, South America, Europe and the occasional catch of the day. She loves the happy tummy.
In addition to this she also does the deck handling of the vessel.
Ulrik is the captain on board and responsible of the operation of the vessel.
He is the one that will navigate through the fjords and islands, guide you on hikes and share his stories about the places we visit.
He's also the local baker on board and will serve fresh baked bread every single day.
Together we put our pride into making this a an experience of a lifetime.

OUR AMAZING AND EXPERIENCED YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Céline was born and raised in Switzerland.
After living and working for almost 30 years in Switzerland she decided to continue her journey up north and moved to Oslo, Norway where she currently lives.
Her yoga journey started shortly after her first yoga classes in Switzerland.
She started to feel that yoga is not only an exercise of the different asanas, but goes way beyond that.
The silence of the mind, the sense of being grounded while at the same time, flowing. The healing power of each movement leads one through everything. Focus and breath.
Céline completed her first vinyasa teacher training with Laughing Lotus in New York.
She also completed a more alignment based teacher training with Adam Hussler from London.
In May, 2019 Céline completed her Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy Certification from the University of Ayurveda in California where she was able to
deepen her understanding of the connection between Ayurveda and Yoga.
Céline is also a certified holistic ayurvedic nutritionist. Since the beginning of 2020 she is also a certified yin yoga teacher.
You can expect powerful, challenging, playful classes with a strong focus on alignment.
