Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and are a daily 60 to 75-minute Vinyasa flow style rooted in the Ashtanga lineage. Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for you to use if the weather is agreeable.

Your day trips will allow you to experience many unique landscapes and activities that this area has to offer.

You will also spend a day in the capital city of Reykjavik to explore some sites, take a walking tour, have some free times to shop, see more of the Icelandic design, or relax before having your dinner in the town. A day in the village of Hveragerði will allow you to see more of this thermal water capital and even visit various sites and thermal parks. A trip to Iceland would not be complete without a day at the Blue Lagoon with its healing waters, silica masks, unparalleled views, and overall spa experience.
