Description

Join me in 2025 for a totally magical retreat in the beautiful wilderness of Finnish Lapland.

We will be staying in an ecological wilderness hotel by a lake in a gorgeous setting by the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park. Our morning yoga space has big windows looking towards the frozen lake while our evening yoga space will be in a more cosy space for a quieter practice.

Only a stone’s throw away from the hotel door, you pass through the gate of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park and enter the hiking trails and ski tracks of Finland’s most storied outdoor terrain. The gentle ascent to the national scenery of Keimiötunturi fell starts from the hotel door. Take deep breaths, as the world’s cleanest air has been measured on the adjacent Sammaltunturi fell.

Activities

You’ll do two yoga sessions each day, morning and early evening. During the daytime there’ll be a chance to take part in extra activities. We will have a few organised walks, snow shoeing (included in price), husky sledding (extra cost) or reindeer sledding on the frozen lake. There is a sauna onsite that is free to use whenever you like and we will have 2 sessions in Arctic Sauna World which is onsite and has 5 different saunas and a chance to do ice dipping!

There will also be the time and space to just relax and take in the amazing scenery and recharge your batteries.

We will be in a fantastic location to see the Northern Lights too!

Food

Your stay will be full board for the duration of your stay. That include breakfast, lunches and dinners in the restaurant of the hotel. Vegetarian and Vegan diets can be catered for. The meals will often be very traditional Lappish style food so will differ from what I normally serve at retreats that I arrange in the UK but will still be delicious and nutritious.

We don’t serve alcohol on this retreat but we won’t stop you from having a glass of wine with your meal or a warming gloggi after a cold walk.

Getting there

The nearest airport is Kittila. You’ll need to fly to Helsinki first and then get a connecting flight north to Kittila. We have got free transfers from Kittila if we all arrive together so I will be sending timing info out to you when you book on to let you know which flight to get. If you arrive at a different time you may have to pay extra for your transfer.

What’s included?

Airport transfer to and from Kittila (see above about timings)

Seven nights’ accommodation in a boutique wilderness hotel (twin share – single supplement £350)

Full board healthy and delicious food

2 yoga sessions per day

Snowshoe walking

2 sessions at Arctic Sauna World with ice dipping

What’s not included?

Flights to Finland

Travel insurance – we require that you take out adequate travel insurance upon booking

extra activities at additional charge – Husky Sledding or Reindeer sleigh gliding and more tbc

Payment plan available

I appreciate that this is a more costly retreat and that you might like to spread the payments out over a year. No problem at all.  If you would like to book and set up a payment plan just pay the deposit and mention in the booking form that you’d like to set up a payment plan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAQs

Q: Can I drink alcohol on the weekend events/retreats?

A: In some venues there is an honesty bar and on our weekend yoga retreats we do serve wine with dinner. We neither encourage nor discourage drinking alcohol as we see it as a personal choice.

Q: Do you cater for special diets/vegan/gluten free?

A: We cater extremely well for most dietary needs. Often our gluten free puddings are the envy of everyone else at the table. Just make sure you let us know any dietary needs

Q: Is there wifi/phone reception?

A: In most of our venues we have limited phone reception and wifi. We see this as a rather good thing, giving everyone time to switch off and unplug.

Q: Can I have a single room?

A: In Elan Valley lodge everyone can have a single room if they wish. At some of our other venues the rooms are shared twins. We do have some single rooms available with a supplement. See individual events pages for details.

Q: Do I have to attend all the yoga sessions?

A: You can attend as many or as few of the sessions as you wish.

Q: What type of yoga will we practice?

A: I teach Hatha yoga with a emphasis on Vinyasa Flow. This is a freestyle form of yoga where poses are linked together with the breath to form flows. It's not necessarily fast but it is strong and dynamic. There will also be elements of Yin and Restorative yoga included.

Q: My balance is terrible, why is that?

A: It's very common to struggle with balance, especially if you are just starting out on your yoga journey. The best approach is to not worry too much about it. Don't focus too hard on trying to balance and definitely don't worry if you fall over. Focus on keeping the breath nice and steady and stay relaxed and with practice you will improve.

Q: Isn't yoga just about sitting and meditating?

A: Meditation is an aspect of Hatha yoga, however there is much more to yoga than sitting in the lotus position. We use a strong physical practice along with specific breath techniques to tap into our focus and concentration. We see this practice as a form of moving meditation.

Q: Are the yoga sessions suitable for beginners?

A: Yes! The sessions are tailored to be accessible for most people with plenty of options for more or less challenge. If you do have specific limitations or an ongoing condition or injury do get in touch to discuss.

Q: I'm not flexible at all, can I still do yoga?

A: Yes! You don't need to be flexible to practice yoga. The practice itself will improve range of motion, strength and flexibility so being stiff is all the more reason to start.
