“We are delighted to share with you our gifts and experiences that we have gathered along our long journey on the path of yoga and self realisation.“
“Explore and bring light to your nervous system through yoga and Cranio Sacral awareness“
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 our self and the subtlety of our being. Our intention is for you to discover a new sense of connection to yourself and your body while having lots of fun.
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.”
Cranio sacral therapy works with a light handed touch, that when applied to the body’s geometry, enhances the nervous system’s own ability to observe itself, to make the self-corrections that will channel fluid and movement more evenly through the whole of the body. Such unwindings are registered not only by the nervous system, but also by the different systems of the body that the nervous system interacts with. This recognition allows for a new level of deep rest throughout all the layers of body, mind and emotional being.
First and foremost we infuse the shala where we practise with an almost tangible sense of presence. The presence of love, acceptance and choiceness awareness.
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 have 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.

Jenny’s spiritual journey started eight years ago in India, when she met her Yoga teacher. This was the start of a life long study of the inquiry into her real being. A few years ago, she met her Guru in Bali, whom she started studying traditional Vedanta with.
She is passionately dedicated to understanding the meaning of true happiness, and what it means to live a spiritual life. In her teaching, she assists with softness and compassion, allowing the uniqueness of every person and their process to take place. She encourages you to listen to your body and the subtleness of your being, with the intention to discover the depth of your heart. She did her first Hatha Yoga TTC with her teacher in India eight years ago and have been going frequently every year to spend time with him. She has done the Sama Yoga TTC and studied a variety of other yoga styles.
