Yoga and Spa Retreat in Sweden with Alan Finger, Sarah Finger and Ulrica Norberg

August 2nd-7th, 2014

Sweden Yoga RetreatJoin Yoga Master Alan Finger and Sarah Finger together with Sweden native, ISHTA Senior teacher Ulrica Norberg for a 5 day Spa Yoga Retreat at the amazing Asia Spa in Varberg, Sweden.

Asia Spa is one of Europe’s most renowned luxury spa hotels and is also well known for its outstanding restaurant and interior design. Varberg is located on Sweden’s west coast with beaches, beautiful historic scenery, and picturesque surroundings. People from all over the world come to Varberg to meet, relax and retreat.

This trio of teachers share over 85 years of experience of yoga, meditation and personal growth. Throughout the week you will learn more about the two main sister sciences of ISHTA: Tantra andAyurveda. Tantra stems from two words: tanoti, meaning “to expand” and trayati, meaning “to liberate.” Tantra is the practice of expanding oneself to his or her fullest potential through the use of breath work, visualization, mantra, and meditation. Tantra teaches the art of weaving unbound intelligence into each moment of our living. Ayurveda is the traditional Indian science of longevity and its goal is to create a balance of one’s inner state, (prakriti) with the external forces of the universe (vikriti). Through the yogic tools of asana (vinyasa yoga with alignment) breath work, yoga nidra, restorative yoga and ISHTA Yin yoga, Alan, Sarah, and Ulrica will leave you feeling replenished, rejuvenated, and re-centered. In between yoga sessions or lectures your time is free to enjoy the blissful Asia Spa or the nature surrounding you. Pamper yourself with services inspired from India, Japan and China, while taking in the unique design drawn from these same regions. Alternatively, you can take beautiful walks along the shores, swim in the ocean or just be. For more information on the retreat, please visit the Varbergs Stadshotell & Asia Spa website.
