OCTOBER 26th-NOVEMBER 2nd 2019
Sequanna Manzenita & Purple Yoga invite you to join on a retreat to Iceland- the dramatic and inspiring landscape where fire meets ice, for a week of exploration through yoga practice & group meditations with a side order of adventure. Deepen your practice while immersing yourself in the culture, customs and myths of the Icelandic people.
Your trip will take shape in Akureyri, located in 66° North Iceland. Akureyri is Iceland's second largest city and one of Iceland’s best kept secrets. Akureyri, known as the cultural capital of Iceland has been voted the No. 1 destination in all of Europe by Lonely Planet-more than once. With a population of just 18,000 people, the mild climate along the longest fjord in the country and a close proximity to the Arctic Circle (meaning amazing Northern Lights), makes Northern Iceland an intriguing place to visit.
Enjoy your daily yoga practice in a newly-built, one-of-a-kind studio with majestic views of the fjord and soaring mountains that will warm your body and soul. This wellness center is complete with massage rooms, dry sauna, Jacuzzi, showers, changing rooms, and all the amenities, and their friendly and knowledgeable guides live on site, giving this space a truly personal touch.
We will stay in local private apartments complete with geothermal Jacuzzis. These comfortable and modern accommodations serve as a launching point for exploring some of the most powerful and beautiful places in Iceland and for diving into the island’s rich traditions. Some of our adventures will include opportunities to ride Icelandic horses across the pristine countryside, see the humpback whales that live in the fjord, visit a nearby island and hike its mountaintops, visiting waterfalls and the Blue Lagoon of the North, work with a team of champion Huskies and quite possibly experience the Aurora Borealis. Additionally, we will reconvene after our adventures for gentle and restorative yoga practices in the evenings.
