KADERMO / HANKO — 2 weeks — August 16-21, and
Teaching on a Yoga Retreat on a beautiful Finnish island in the ocean
Open to anyone
These 2 weeks (Sunday August 16th to Friday August 30nd) take place in The Midnight Sun Ashtanga Yoga Retreat, lead by yoga master, Stefan Engström. The retreats normally take only a small group of students to be able to create a nice close-knit group and a family atmosphere.
The retreat is located on the island of Kadermo about 10 km north east of Hanko (see map here) — a beautiful and almost untouched island with no shops or cars and hardly any other people.
This is a unique opportunity to experience yoga in untouched and idyllic surroundings far away from city lights where sunrise is at 4 am and sunset at 11 pm.
Where else can one listen to such silence, broken only by the sound of an owl hooting in the night, a woodpecker hacking away at a pine tree, seagulls squalling, a deer crying in the morning mist? This is the place where you can re-establish contact with
nature and your true self. Come and move into stillness with us.
David will be teaching each day on this retreat and will:
— help you understand your marvellous human design and function,
— guide you to gain a more centred balance and flexible support,
— work with you to improve the freedom, ease and safety of your yoga work,
— show you how to go about your yoga to gain strength and stamina without hard
— help you to become more present and free of distracting thoughts and judgement,
— show you how wholeness and grace is a consequence of clarity of intention,
— and whatever else comes up from each of you in the course of the retreat...
