Yoga retreat in Denmark

In July Michelle will lead a 3-day yoga retreat on the pristine waters of the Limfjord on the Lundø peninsula of Denmark. The peninsula is an ideal holiday destination as well if you wish to swim, hike or just enjoy nature and breathe air packed full of oxygen. On both sides of the peninsula is a 20m wide and 10km long beach of sand and small rocks. Our retreat is located at the top of the peninsula on the fjord called the Tarp The water is absolutley clear, shallow and depending on the winds favorable for surfing. Along the beach you can spot nesting birds and on occasion seals. Among small forests of pine you will see walking trails and more natural wildlife. But to really enjoy the region it is recommended to just relax, do nothing.

The 3-day retreat includes:

§ airport pickup at 16.20 Friday (or you can arrive by train which is 10-15 km away from Lundø);

§ a house will be provided with shared amenities, kitchen and bath

§ two full meals a day and a visit to the charming cafe adjoining the yoga room;

§ five vinyasa flow practices and yoga nidra;

§ sunrise meditation.
