We live in a simple and genuine cottage near the mountain station in Abisko. High mountains frame the beautiful Abisko Valley with its beautiful alps, mighty rapids and Scandinavia’s largest mountain lake Torneträsk. Every day there is the opportunity to follow a few hours of hiking and most days we eat our lunch outside. Experience the vast expanses, the strong feeling of freedom and of being a part of nature. In the last half of September, the high season is over and the color scale has completely changed to orange and bright red and the mountains are burning. The air is cold and crispy clear. We walk mainly in silence and focus on the impressions of the nature around us. The body gets pleasantly tired and the mind gets peace.
We do different kinds of yoga, calmer forms of yoga where we are for a longer time in the position as yin and restorative but also more physical yoga forms such as hatha, vinyasa and flow where we move in and out of the positions. Pranayama / breathing techniques and meditations are part of yoga and we will try several different forms. By being able to try many different kinds of yoga, meditation and breathing techniques / pranayama, you have the opportunity to find the form that suits you best. The yoga we do is adapted to your conditions and everyone can participate.
