Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Sweden.
Welcome to a wonderful weekend filled with playfulness, joy, presence, new challenges, and time to refine some amazing washing machines. This is a weekend for everybody with earlier experience of AcroYoga, the level of the workshop will be intermediate to advanced. It’s time to go deeper into the acrobatic aspect of AcroYoga!
The feeling in Shambala is that of being a community space. For this reason you will be expected to share a room with a fellow yogi. Unless otherwise stated in your booking, the couples will be placed randomly but of the same gender. This is a wonderful opportunity to have deep connections that could otherwise have never been planned.
The types of accommodation are as follows:
Twin rooms can be booked as single rooms with an extra surcharge when available. All accommodation has shared showers and bathrooms.
The weekend starts with a dinner out on the deck overlooking the sunset over the lake. After the dinner, you will wake up your bodies with some soft AcroYoga - then you celebrate the start of an amazing weekend with a kirtan together in the big shala.
Saturday morning starts with a yoga class, followed by breakfast and some good hours of AcroYoga. A delicious vegetarian lunch is served and then there is the possibility to have a dip in the lake, stretch out in the sun, or walk in the forest.
In the afternoon, you load yourself up with more AcroYoga and top it off with a great dinner. In the evening, you can sing some more bhajans, go in the sauna and take a swim, light a fire, or why not do it all!
On Sunday, there will be more acro, more yoga, more great food.
This retreat will be located in Shambala Gatherings. The retreat-center is situated in a beautiful serene place out in the troll nature of Bergslagen just by a small lake. Shambala Gatherings have created space for acro and yoga classes, free training, and time to enjoy the amazing center.
