Norwegian Artic Retreat - Meriel

summer, space, mountains, islands, silence

sky, sea, lake... inside & out

July-August 2019 dates tbc

Stunning retreat experience returns in 2019 to remote virgin landscape in North Norway.

Mountains as high as the oceans are deep... Join us next summer to retreat into a very special part of the remote world. Lillien's boutique Nordic barn is on the edge of the world and here we will relax deeply into Scaravelli inspired Yoga sensing self on the edges of light where our best energies whisper. The Norwegian Artic is untouched, wild and quiet. Perhaps somewhere in us remembers that we are too? This gorgeous barn rests within stunning silence with immediate mountain and island views with a white-sand & turquoise water beach easily accessible.

Optional wonders include forest hikes & mountain walks, sauna, jacuzzi & evening meditation.

Meriel Goss teaches directly from her own practice within a yoga inspired by the teaching of Vanda Scaravelli. She works closely with teacher Diane Long - one of Sacravelli's few long-term students - a vital source in interpreting Scaravelli's approach into movement, grace, beauty. She draws also from Christone's Borg intuitive sharing of Diane's work. This way of working offers attention to our best energies by avoiding pushing and pulling in our moving in favour of listening and following the language of ourselves alive. Meriel also trains in TCTSY facilitation with Dr Bessel Van de Kolk's Trauma Centre, Justice Institute, Boston working towards offering trauma-informed yoga and places for all.

Includes: Yoga with Meriel 10am-1pm daily followed by lunch then free time. Optional wonders - hike/local guide, mountain walks, sauna, jacuzzi & evening meditation.
