Description:

After the success last year, we will again organise our yoga related projects. Expect a mixture of workcamp and yoga retreat with the focus on yoga. We will work together with yogias, a senior yoga teacher from Amsterdam.

Participants will live together in the centre of Reykjavík. Be ready for daily vinyasa style flow yoga classes as well as restorative yoga and meditation sessions amongst other yogic activities and surprises. We will establish a daily yoga practice in a gentle and regular schedule. There will be lots of opportunities for karma yoga, conversations and compassion. We will also have enough free time to explore the city and to dive into the local swimming pool, a truly Icelandic experience.

Participants should have an affinity for yoga and a motivation to practice daily. Although some yoga experience is beneficial, an advanced level is not required. Yoga is for everybody and every body. Make sure to bring your own yoga mat, clothes and maybe block and belt, if needed for your practice. A blanket and cushion would come in handy too. There will be no extra mats or props available. Maybe you’d also like to have a dear object or picture with you for your personal focus.

Please note this project is more of a learning/sharing camp and not a regular workcamp. We may be able to organize voluntary service on a couple of afternoons but it depends on our partners and the weather. The program combines learning, sharing, getting to know Iceland, its culture, having fun, as well as exploring the capital city and some stunning nature attractions in the excursions or other destinations, which will be part of the camp.

Project dates: November 10 - November 18, 2019
