iceland yoga retreat

The raw and fierce beauty of Iceland will awe and amaze… guaranteed!  The volcanic power that continues to form this island is palatable in the hum of Reykjavik and in the echoes of ageless glaciers and exploding geysers.  Hot water for your tea?  Hot shower water in your room?  Yup, all geo-thermally heated.  Iceland, in all its seasons and facets, is an extraordinary yoga retreat backdrop. Our first trip to Iceland captured our hearts and we are excited to share with you the highlights of what makes this island tick.  Explore waterfalls and geysers, case the city, find out what all of the geo-thermal fuss is about and chillax in the Blue Lagoon. From our base in Reykjavik we’ll find the rhythm and hum of the city with multiple escapes to unrivaled natural beauty.
