Iceland is nature at its very finest. The raw and fierce beauty of this country was calling and this nature-craving yogi joined forces with a “mother of dragons” running and hiking coach to bring the best of outdoor experiences to the retreaters.
This retreat is designed to rejuvenate and bring joy and is geared specifically for those who collect running shoes. (Options for the hiker as well). Reduce stress by breathing in the crisp Iceland air while hearing the crunch of volcanic rock-covered trails beneath your feet. Relax via your yoga class and explore the magic that this unique country has to offer. We partnered with The Travel Yogi to bring you the best authentic experiences available in Iceland including food.
Science tells us that outdoor time is critical to our psychological well-being. The theory of “biophillia hypothesis”suggests we love nature because we evolve from it.
As a yoga retreat planner, Amy understands that nature is instrumental to the joy filled experience of a retreat and has incorporated a week worth of outdoor adventure to store away in the soul for the rest of winter upon completion of this get-a-way.
So explore waterfalls and geysers with us, chase the Northern lights, case the city, and find out what all of the geo-thermal fuss is about. At the end of the retreat chillax in the world famous Blue Lagoon and breathe in the stunning scenery.
