Yoga On Ice

SHALL WE GO AND PACK?

Winter Arctic Yoga Retreat in Swedish Lapland

Perfect your downward dog, restore your wellbeing and connect with the surroundings in Arctic Sweden. Located deep within the Arctic Circle near Jokkmokk this snow and ice yoga retreat takes place at the Aurora Safari Camp - a pop-up camp consisting of traditional Sami tent tipis, and located in the wilderness on a frozen lake.  

The retreat offers guests daily yoga classes of Virya Yoga – a Nordic method which focuses on biomechanics and strengthening exercises. You’ll enjoy relaxing meditation through a range of personalised classes that can be tailored to suit all abilities and goals. Classes take place on the ice-covered river, on the snow and in the lavvu. The incredible winter wonderland scenery and Arctic silence combined with the guided meditation classes and periods of reflection during the retreat will take guests on a journey of inner self discovery.
