This cozy and peaceful retreat centre is owned by Päivi Seppä who is the mother of Sofia Soori. Together they built a yogashala from scratch out of organic materials. It is located in the forest by their summer houses with a two minute walk from the baltic sea.
The yogashala (house) has 13 windows overlooking the beautiful swedish forest and a sauna heater (yes, hot yoga classes available and cozy meditation moments with a fire place view).
Close to the yogashala are two houses with two bedrooms in each for retreat members to stay in. The garden is big and at summer times we grow our own organic vegetables, which we serve at the retreat meals too.
There is also a possibility to bring a tent and camp at the retreat area if you want to stay even closer to nature.
Bathrooms and showers are available. All rooms are shared with one other person. If you wish to book your private room, let us know and we will provide you with information!

During our yoga retreats we split the small group of 8 participants in to two very cosy traditional Swedish summer houses. There is two bedrooms in each house. One of the bedrooms has a bunkbed, one has a kingsize bed and two rooms have twin beds (which you can also put together to a kingsize bed if you're a couple).
We live very close to nature and have 2 "bathrooms" at the facility. We recently built a bathoom outside of the "mainhouse" which has a normal flush toilet and an outdoor shower. There is also a second bathroom, which is a outhouse toilet (common to have at Swedish summer houses).
