“Get your Mojo Back” – Magi og stjernestøv i den finske skov.

30. August 2019 – 5. September 2019

 

I januar måned 2019 tog jeg til Finland for at mødes med Mia, som selv er yogalærer og ejer sammen med sin mand Villa Mandala. Et helt og aldeles fantastisk sted, kun 1 times kørsel fra Helsinki lufthavn. De har sammen renoveret Villa Mandala med respekt for de gamle materialer. Yogasalen er en af de smukkeste jeg har set…. og jeg har set mange…. renoveret med sans for stedets historie og med udsigt over – i januar… det sneklædte landskab, og i september…. skovens gyldne nuancer.

In Januar 2019 I went to Finland to meet Mia, the owner of Villa Mandala. Mia is a yoga teacher and together with her husband, they have renovated Villa Mandala into a amazing place for people who seek quiet and serene surroundings. Villa Mandala is the first wellness center that has been built by the Stress Free Area® concept with every step of the way. You can easily get there from Helsinki airport. Only 1 hour drive.

The Yogashala is one of the most beautiful shalas I’ve ever seen….. !

When we arrive in august/september, the forest will meet us, dressed in autumn colors.

Frokosten blev serveret i spisesalen, hvor det var tydeligt at se inspiration fra alle verdensdele, men også en dyb respekt for stedets oprindelighed og æstetik. F.eks. var alle bordene håndlavede af træ fra den nedlagte lade, og beklædt med glasplader. Maden er vegansk/vegetarisk, og tilberedes af stedets egen kok.

The lunch was served in the dining hall, where inspiration from all corners of the world makes the scenery, but also a deep respect for the what has been a part of Villa Mandala before the renovation. All tables were handmade from wooden boards from the old barn, and covered with glass. The food is exquisite and vegan – prepared by Villa Mandalas own cook.

     

Værelserne er indrettet på fineste vis. Der er få enkeltværelser, flere dobbeltværelser og flersengsværelser.

The rooms are beautiful. Few single rooms, more double rooms og dormitories. 

Du kan slappe fuldstændig af på stedet, læse en bog, gå i sauna eller du kan lade stedet arrangere ture, såsom “Stilhedens sti”, en cykeltur gennem det mest fantastiske finske landskab, eller en tur til en nærliggende sø.

You can relax, read a book, go to the sauna or try hiking on a “Trail of Silence” or maybe a day trip to a nearby lake.

Jeg er blevet inviteret af Villa Mandala til at undervise på engelsk i week-enden 30.-31. august og 1. september 2019. Herefter fortsætter retreatet “Magi og stjernestøv i de finske skove” på dansk i dagene 2.-3.-4.-5. september 2019.

Har du lyst til at deltage hele perioden er du meget velkommen.  Det foregår på et let forståeligt engelsk, og Yoga er et sprog, der ikke kender grænser. Der undervises i Kundalini Yoga og du kan se priser for begge perioder herunder

I am invited by Villa Mandala to teach Kundalini Yoga in English. The English speaking retreat is: “Get your Mojo back”

The Danish speaking Kundalini Yoga retreat is: “Magi og stjernestøv i den finske skov” and you can see the dates below. You are very welcome to choose the number of days, that will suit your time schedule best.
