“Our unique combination of CranioSacral Therapy and traditional Hatha Yoga weaves together gentleness, stability and subtlety”


“Explore and bring light to your nervous system through yoga and craniosacral awareness”


Join us for a special New years retreat celebration!
The winter is the perfect time for introspection and soul warming yoga practice. We’d like to celebrate new years in our own unique way with a delicious vegan buffet, kirtan/chanting, dancing, sauna, stargazing and celebrating the beauty of the clear, crisp nature.

Our unique experience of the combination of traditional yoga, Cranio Sacral Therapy and kirtan (healing chants) will meet in a powerful synergy during this retreat. Through our personal immersion in these systems over a long time we have discovered a holistic path to an ever deepening awareness of ourselves and the subtlety of our being. Our intention is for you to discover a new sense of connection to your being and your body while truly enjoying yourself.



What is Nordic Light Yoga ?

The fundamentals of Nordic Light Yoga lies in the space we hold for you. We work consciously to create a field of allowance, love and acceptance of what is, based on Cranio Sacral principles.

Our intention is for each person to feel seen in their unique journey and to assist everyone in a non-doing way.



What is Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST), and how do we incorporate it in our yoga?

“Unwinding the patterns that lies between you and the experience of your true self, your optimal health, your real blueprint.”

The purpose of Cranio Sacral Therapy is to connect you to the «breath of life» your body’s innate power and capacity to heal itself. This therapy works with a light touch that helps the nervous system relax and your whole body to unwind, which allows for a new level of deep rest throughout all the layers of body, mind and emotional being.

Unlike most yoga adjustments, which are often directive or corrective, cranio sacral adjustments are not there to impose or correct but to allow the body itself to receive a heightened awareness. We trust that your body has an innate intelligence to unfold itself back into balance and harmony and we love to tenderly and softly assist you in this natural process.

Our nervous system plays a key role in how we feel about ourselves and the way we respond to situations in life.

With a nourishing yoga practise and Cranio Sacral awareness we cultivate our nervous system to be in loving acceptance with everything that flows in through our senses, which defines how we perceive our whole existence.

A new kind of alignment takes place and we can walk through life with an open and heart-connected posture.

We have found these tools to be the “oil” that creates the possibility of our mental, emotional and physical bodies to run smoothly together to create a life full of grace.
