More information about yoga classes


Hatha “Ha” means sun and “tha” means moon so the Hatha practice helps us to balance our “masculine” and “feminine” aspects, finding equilibrium. During the practice, you will build strength and flexibility. This asana practice cultivates focus and helps to clear the energy pathways in the body bringing it to a sense of alignment.


Yin yoga is a practice that works the connective tissues (fascia, ligaments, tendons and bones) of the body. It is a soft and passive practice that requires slowing down so we can surrender the body to gravity and enter a state of self-inquiry and contemplation. It is an asana, and meditation practice all rolled into one, that helps to release and clear the energy pathways of the body.


Sometimes called the Yogi Sleep. Yoga Nidra counteracts stress and helps provide effective relief from depression and long-standing anxiety. It is an efficient way to obtain sleep. It helps clear the mind for learning and absorbing new material. Releases tension between body and mind and helps prepare for mediation practices. It is profoundly rejuvenating and helps with concentration and focus.

Discovering your essence through the 5 Koshas

The five koshas are the pathway to the deepest layers of ourselves. When we embark upon any journey to and through ourselves, we are taking a journey through these layers of existence. Each of these layers is seen as a veil that has been created for us to develop deeper understanding, to examine, and ultimately to transcend as we find our way back to our truest Self.


A retreat can either be a wonderful time of solitude or a community experience.

An enriching way to cultivate awareness of self and immerse yourself in the teachings of yoga.

1. Vastuuvapautus

Osallistuja osallistuu retriitille omalla vastuullaan ja huolehtii itse omasta tapaturmavakuutuksestaan. Tapahtuman järjestäjä ei ole vastuussa osallistujalle tai hänen omaisuudelleen mahdollisesti aiheutuvasta haitasta.

Ohjelma on suunniteltu liikuntakykyiselle ja terveelle ihmiselle. Osallistuja ilmoittautuu ja osallistuu tapahtumaan vapaaehtoisesti tiedostaen harjoitusten yleiset riskit. Osallistuja on tietoinen ja ymmärtää, että ohjaaja ei ole terveydenhuollon ammattilainen, eikä hän voi antaa arviota osallistujan terveydentilasta tai harjoittelun riskeistä juuri hänen kohdallaan. Osallistujan tulee itse konsultoida lääkäriä mahdollisista riskeistä hänen kohdallaan. 

Tapahtuma on suunniteltu hyvinvoinnin tukemiseen eikä ole psyykkisen tai fyysisen sairauden hoitamista. Se ei sovellu akuutissa vaikeassa elämäntilanteessa olevalle tai mielenterveysongelmista kärsiville. Myös osallistumisesta raskauden aikana suosittelemme konsultoimaan lääkäriä, mikäli epäilet soveltuvuutta.


2. Peruutusehdot

Peruutuksista ilmoitetaan tapahtuman järjestäjälle kirjallisesti, sähköposti:



Retriittien (yön yli kestävät tapahtumat) kohdalla sitova ilmoittautuminen tarkoittaa sitä, että mikäli osallistuja peruu osallistumisensa hänen tulee maksaa peruutusmaksuna varausmaksu.. Varausmaksu veloitetaan peruutuksen syystä riippumatta.

Mikäli osallistuminen perutaan alle 7 vrk ennen tapahtuman alkua, veloitetaan peruutusmaksuna 50 % osallistumismaksun kokonaissummasta. Halutessaan osallistuja voi vaihtaa tilalleen toisen henkilön.

Mikäli peruutus tapahtuu osallistujan yllättävän sairastumisen vuoksi, osallistuja maksaa ainoastaan varausmaksun/peruutusmaksun, mikäli hän osoittaa sairautensa järjestäjälle sairaslomatodistuksena. Sairaslomatodistus on esitettävä järjestäjälle 3 vrk sisällä peruutuksesta. 

Peruutuksesta sairastumisen johdosta tulee ilmoittaa järjestäjälle mahdollisimman pian, viimeistään ennen tapahtuman alkua. Mikäli osallistuja jättää ilmoittamatta tai ei esitä sairaslomatodistusta järjestäjälle, osallistuja on velvollinen maksamaan tapahtuman täysimääräisesti. Erimielisyydet pyritään selvittämään neuvottelemalla.



Retriitit, joissa osallistuja maksaa täyshoidon (majoitus ja ruoka) suoraan palvelun tuottajalle (retriittipaikka)!

Osallistujan oikeuteen peruuttaa matka sovelletaan sopimusta yleisistä matkapakettiehdoista (1.7.2018). Mikäli osallistuja peruuttaa täysihoidon 7-3 vrk ennen retriittiä, pidätämme peruutusmaksuna 75% täysihoidon hinnasta. Mikäli peruutus tehdään alle 3 vrk ennen retriittiä, pidätämme peruutusmaksuna 95% täysihoidon hinnasta. Jos osallistuja ei saavu paikalle ja jättää peruuttamatta täysihoidon, oikeutta maksun palautukseen ei ole. Suosittelemme matkavakuutuksia esim. äkillisten sairastapausten varalta. Mikäli retriitti joudutaan perumaan talon puolesta (force majeure), palautamme kaikki maksut.



Järjestäjällä on oikeus peruuttaa tapahtuma ylivoimaisen esteen (force majeure) tai vähäisen osallistujamäärän vuoksi. Tästä ilmoitetaan osallistujille viipymättä. Järjestäjä ei ole velvollinen korvaamaan peruutuksesta ilmoittautuneelle mahdollisesti aiheutuvia kuluja, kuten matkalippuja. Osallistujan mahdollisesti maksamat maksut palautetaan tässä tilanteessa täysimääräisenä.
