Overview

An adventure retreat to ignite your inner light through the practice of yoga and meditation.

Join yoga teacher Sarah Lindgren in Akureyri for a deep dive into discovering your luminous nature on this week-long journey.  Where you will have time to nurture your curiosity and quell your thirst for exploration both inward and out in this relaxing spacious landscape of Northern Iceland.

Our journey will include daily yoga, meditation, and contemplation.  We will also take time to explore the unique landscape that surrounds us.  Feel free to engage in day trips such as hiking, horseback riding, thermal baths, or whale watching.  If you wish for more time to turn inward, know that you can always enjoy the spa services or take a nap in your cabin.  In the evening we should have beautiful views of the Northern Lights unobscured by the light pollution of larger cities. You can expect to enjoy three nourishing and healthful meals each day that are carefully crafted to support your body and mind as we move through this explorative time together. This retreat is open to all. Together we will create a brave space to hold and nurture one another.  No experience is necessary, simply come as you are, leave with what you’ve been seeking…

Instructors

SARAH LINDGREN

Sarah teaches people how to nurture themselves through grounding and embodiment practices so they can begin to truly love the life they live. Sarah is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (200 E-RYT) working to empower students in public classes, workshops, and yoga retreats. She is also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) and offers one on one apprenticeship programs. Sarah is dedicated to utilizing the teachings of yoga that break down the barriers within our lives. In her class, you can expect breath-based and functional movement techniques as well as energetic practices like pranayama and meditation.

Sarah began practicing yoga in 2006 while expecting her first daughter. That initial experience of being present in her body was one of profound self-realization. She became aware that she had been missing self-love and empowerment since adolescence. This life-altering experience drove her to dig deeper into alternative solutions for healing and wholeness. Sarah began to cultivate a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness between the mind and body experience and societal expectations. Through her dedicated practice and self-awareness, she found yoga and its accompanying modalities to be an indispensable practice of reclaiming and healing her human spirit.

Sarah took the next step on her path by obtaining her 200-hour certification in 2016 from Moksha Yoga in Chicago with Daren Friesen. She completed this program with more than 700 hours of training. Her training has included studying under internationally acclaimed teachers Gary Kraftsow, Aadil Palkhivala, and Jason Crandell. Sarah has also worked closely with local teachers Jim Bennett, Wade Gotwals, and Amber Cook. Including advanced 100-hour training with Karuna Yoga and Tejas Yoga, Yoga to Transform Trauma with Katherine Ashton, and multiple subtle body training sessions. Sarah continues to embrace being a student of this expansive practice and its ability to heal. Sarah is currently enrolled in a 300-hour training to continue her education and ability to meet people where they are with greater knowledge and understanding of yoga practices and philosophy.
