Practice yoga in beautiful surroundings with a fire burning in the oven and relax in the sauna with a view of the beach and the fjord.
In the village below Norefjell, along the green banks of Krøderfjorden, lies Nedre Skinnes Farm. Midway between Krøderen and Noresund, on the west side of the fjord.
During these October days together at Nord we will align with the season and the rhythms of the earth. We will move and strengthen our bodies with vinyasa-yoga and slow down with more grounding yoga to find calm, all practices tailored especially for the fall. We will circle around our mandala in the beautiful Lavvo shala at Nord where you will experience meditation, sound healing, song, mudra, pranayama and journaling exercises.
Autumn is a powerful time of transition. Starting in full ripeness asking us to enjoy and harvest all the fruits from her land and then, the next moment, releasing all her colorful leaves to the earth before she retires into winter and hibernation. It is a season with a strong dualism. We tend to gather around nourishing food and give thanks for the harvest and at the same time prepare for longer, darker nights in solitude.
This weekend will be an opportunity for you to step out of your everyday life and to deepen your yoga practice in a safe and sacred space. Led by an experienced teacher and held together with a supportive group of other females you can surrender and let go into relaxation and take a dive deeper into your true self.
You can expect both alone time for reflection and gathering together with the whole group to create a fall celebration. Let's move into the longer, darker days together remembering that autumn is an intersection of celebration and release.
The diet this weekend will consist of seasonal vegetables, nuts, fruits, grains, beans, rice to name a few. All food will be vegetarian, nutritious and soothing for body and mind.
