Centerhotel Plaza, Aðalstræti, 101 Reykjavík, Reykjavíkurborg, Capital Region, Iceland

Form and Focus Iceland Yoga Retreat

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Iceland.

Our Form and Focus itineraries combine yoga and creativity classes. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the moments of pure presence in our daily activities. Then travel-journal creation classes will help us find new ways of seeing, helping us create a more meditative way of collecting our memories.

No previous art or yoga background required. All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating and personal experience.

Accommodation

We will split our retreat between two lovely boutique hotels - both in and outside of the city center of Reykjavik. That way we can experience the various landscapes and cultures of this amazing country.

We’ll start out our time in the heart of downtown Reykjavik at the brand new Centerhotel Miðgarður, a well-appointed hotel located in the city center, next to the main shopping and site streets of this compact city. There are an on-site spa and restaurant, and comfortable, newly-appointed, modern rooms. Then after our time in the city, we’ll head to the countryside to one of Iceland’s most prized and talked-about design hotels: the Ion Adventure Hotel.

“Nestled in the magical lava landscapes of the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, this unique design hotel is constructed very much with nature in mind. It features a slick restaurant and bar, an outdoor hot tub and spa, and comfortable, high-end rooms.” -Telegraph

Fire and ice. Hot and cold. An abandoned inn turned boutique hotel in Iceland. Ion Adventure Hotel is where modern design meets Iceland’s incomparable natural landscape. Situated in the south-western town of Selfoss - near a national crossroad, making the hotel accessible to various parts of the country - Ion is conveniently located to offer guests the best of Iceland.

From the volcanic marvels of Mount Hengill to the urban sophistication of Reykjavik nearby, the unique landscape plays a pivotal role in the rich design of the hotel, which leans heavily on sustainable practices and the natural features of the island. In the guest rooms, one can expect a mellow mix of concrete chic and earthy ambiance, combined with the warm accents of locally salvaged driftwood and lava, all deftly handled by design studio Minarc.

Beyond this, the farm-fresh cuisine at Silfra Restaurant & Bar, view-heavy Northern Lights Bar, and partially exposed Lava Spa all ensure that visitors have the ultimate Icelandic experience before even stepping foot outside.

Program

Daily yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help you grow in your own personal practice and prepare bodies and minds for the personal development done in the manifest workshops. 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.

Included excursions

  • A day in Reykjavik (the walking tour, sites, dinner, and shopping)
  • A guided tour of Golden Circle (Geysir, Gullfoss, and Thingvellir National Park)
  • A visit to Hveragerði village and thermal spa, "Rye Bread experience", and dinner
  • One day at Blue Lagoon with the meal at Lava Restaurant
  • The greenhouse tour including a lunch and horse farm visit

Activities may change based on weather and unforeseen circumstances.
