We’ll be hidden 2 hours away from Stockholm, nestled within a pine forest centred around a lake with immediate access to dip in. Floating sauna, vegan food and long walks in the forest.
Immerse yourself in the powerful duality of yin and yang yoga practises by the Nordic Sisters Ida & Josie. Ida will be teaching powerful vinyasa flows fused with elements of animal flow and primal movement to wake you up in the morning whilst Josephine guides you into the world of healing meditation and breath work with the evening yin practises.
’How often do we take the time to honour our ancestors? To sit with our story and to allow the natural unfolding of LIFE to take place?
Held in the beauty and rawness of Nature we will allow for an opening and softening to occur. All. By. Itself.
Come to breathe, cry, hug, laugh and dance through it all. Come to be seen, touched and understood.
More than anything come to recognize that YOU ARE ALWAYS LOVED.’

Ida & Josie work as a duo of yin and yang bringing yoga asanas, breath work, guided meditation and healing to the everyday person as well as the seasoned yogi. They believe strongly in empowering people to find their own truth by owning and loving their story. Ida & Josie have run many retreats all around the world and continue their work individually as well as collectively under the name: NORDIC SISTERS.
They work closely in rhythm with Nature and align all their workshops, events and retreats with the seasons. Inspiring people to live in balance with nature and to understand that ‘it is not the Earth that belongs to us- it is us that belong to the Earth.’
Ida is an international yoga and fitness instructor, personal trainer and all around movement director. Ida fell into yoga through a long career in dance – so no doubt she loves a good flow! Moving through asanas and finding new spaces and depths in the practise, those exciting places that connect the moves, your breath and some new tunes – that’s where it’s at. Find the attunement of the body, mind, breath and the beat of the music.
Ida’s diverse background and passion to keep exploring new things has encouraged and inspired her to create new concepts and consult studios. Ida has been ranked as one of London’s top 5 female fitness instructors. She is featured as one of the London’s Creative Females on the latest Adidas ‘Meet The Creators’ campaign and can be found on the cover of the Evening Standard ‘Fitster trainers in London’. Ida is constantly working on creative concepts and consulting studios. Her latest creations with ADIDAS Women you can find here !!!
Ida is always on the go and simply could not do a day without moving. ‘When I was moving I could feel’ (Pina Bausch).
Josephine is a celebrated healer and yoga teacher who is based in London but shares her love and wisdom all around the world. She is frequently featured in Yogamazine and teaches at Triyoga, Shoreditch House, Akasha and Yogarise.
‘Josie’s special blend of teachings are hypnotically healing for mind, body and soul. She doesn’t just lead you through the class, she leads you on an adventure into your own brilliance. If you are interested in unleashing everything that is possible in your life, Josie is the key teammate for you. It’s not just yoga, it’s a yoga revolution!’
