Location: Akureyri, Iceland

Nurture your senses and awaken your wild soul with yoga, mindfulness, nature, nurturance, and exploration on this wilderness getaway in the mountains of Iceland. Fresh air, movement, conscious being, health conversations, ritual, ceremony,  and conscious living.

In our busy lives, we can forget the sensation of allowing ourselves to breathe, move, and connect to our surroundings and our true selves. Whether moving mindfully through asanas on your yoga mat, walking consciously and feeling the earth below your feet, or reflecting and discussing health and wellness, this journey will offer you an opportunity to remember your own true nature. Let your lungs receive fresh air, your bodies escape to play and explore, your hearts open to the natural beauty of connection. This is a getaway that will surely be etched into your memories as a time of living more vibrant and awake.

  • 6 nights accommodations
  • 3 meals per day starting with dinner on the first night and ending with breakfast on the last day
  • Round-trip group transport to/from the airport
  • Daily yoga practices
  • Personal retreat time (having time to nap, explore, walk, read, and just be)

Sample Itinerary

The retreat includes one-to-two daily yoga classes, 3 delicious and nurturing meals, guided meditation, and sacred reflective circles welcoming ritual and conversations.One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch will take place midday, during this free time.  There will also be a yoga class offered in the afternoon/early evening that will be more restorative in nature and form, helping us ground down and settle into nourishment of dinner and deep rest.

In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!

This is a very general look at what your retreat schedule could be. We work closely with the teachers to design unique itineraries that reflect their style and the group that’s traveling with them. Once your specific retreat itinerary is complete, we will send it out via email, usually two or more weeks before the retreat starts. Please keep in mind all retreat itineraries are subject to change.

Housing:

Nestled at the base of some of Iceland’s dramatic mountains, the Mountain Lodge Yoga Retreat is the perfect way to experience the beauty and peace of Iceland. What was once an ancient sheep farm and home to Viking settlements is now a cozy mountain lodge with beautiful cottages and a nature filled atmosphere. Relax and rejuvenate with the outdoor hot tub, indoor sauna, spa house, and barn-turned yoga room! During the summer months, enjoy endless sunlight and opportunities to explore the local wildlife on the Troll Peninsula. During the colder months, gaze in awe at the northern lights and snow-capped mountains. While staying at this retreat center, you can look forward to delicious, healthy meals, opportunities to hike, ride horses, and explore the local wilderness, and simply relax and enjoy!!

Things To Do:

Iceland is a country built for nature-lovers. Gushing waterfalls, striking glaciers, and spontaneous rainbows wait behind every corner. Take advantage of your time in Iceland to explore the endless beauty, or give yourself a break and enjoy the more relaxing offerings, such as the volcanic hot springs, that make Iceland an ideal destination for a retreat.
