 Yoga, Northern Lights, Hot Springs, Glaciers, Sonar Music Festival

FEBRUARY 9-17, 2015

Icelanders will tell you that winter is the most breathtaking time to visit their awe-inspiring country.  The beauty of Iceland is not only found in it’s raw otherworldly nature, but in the unique and creative culture that bleeds out of Reykjavik. We’ve anchored this trip around the Sonar Music Festival – chasing the northern lights and the majestic North to start – returning to Reykjavik to explore the music culture – finishing by exploring the jaw dropping glaciers and beaches of the South Coast.




 “Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard

Our Iceland yoga adventure was featured in National Geographic Traveller…Find out why!

“The Iceland Trip in a nutshell: Double rainbows and hot springs everywhere, amazing people, one of the best yoga instructors I have ever encountered (Aarona rocks!), great lodging, daily active adventures, and just a darn good time. I went with a friend but would have been comfortable going solo. I would definitely recommend going – one of the best trips of my life!”

A Day in the life of a yoga retreat to Iceland:
“Yesterday we listened. It was one of those days that is marked by such a unique fullness that you no longer need to search for anything. After a morning yoga class and wonderful lunch we hiked along the coast, swam in the North Atlantic on a black stone beach, played in a singing cave and ran down a mountain through lava fields filled with soft moss and as many wild blueberries as we had time for. Time stopped and life started beating by the ripeness of blueberries and the speed of our feet. Our destination was a blurry line of direction and distraction. After a delicious meal and restorative yoga class we were gifted an hour of the most spectacular show I’ve ever seen, the Northern Lights. We spread out in a hay field and instead of finding cows, quite literrally I began to hear a series of “wows”, over and over and over again until the lights died down and it was time for bed.” – Ben Crosky, Guide

It's a creative, aligning sequence full of twists, lunges, warrior poses, one-legged balancing poses, neck releases and shoulder openers. Use this practice any time to focus your mind, revitalize your spine and nerves, open your hips, and build strength from the ground up. This is also an awesome gift!

"I loooove your classes, not just because they are so creative and beautiful and challenging and always make me want to ASPIRE, but there is something about you and the vibe you give off.  I am a better, more generous person because of your teaching. Thank you!    " - Cybele Fishman
"I work in a pretty intense environment and your classes really help me to decompress and get rid of stress from the day.

"I feel more energized, focused and overall balanced. The weight loss is 'just' an added value. The 'lifestyle program' is one of the best investments in myself I have ever made. It is not a diet but a meaningful way of life by understanding food and nutrition, my body and its needs and by using food to my body's benefit rather then its demise.    " - Nic Steinberg

I truly appreciate all that you give to us." - Jackie Burt
"Great class tonight, you are such an amazing teacher. I really appreciate the creativity & intelligence you put into each class to make it unique & help me to realize a different way to flow, different challenges, different pleasures, differents sensations, different insights, every time! I left class floating with joy. Thank you thank you!!!" - Hikari Yokoyama

Her passion and experience combines with her knowledge to yield a great force of healing." - Elena Brower
