The creators, Location and Accommodation
A few years ago Päivi Seppä, a medical doctor and her daugther Sofia Soori, a yoga teacher, started dreaming about building a yoga retreat centre in the archipelago of Stockholm. Today that dream is reality.
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 2 minute walk from the baltic sea. The shala 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!

(included in retreats)
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. Two of the bedrooms are bunkbeds and two are 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. One is a normal bathroom with shower in the same building. The second bathroom is a outhouse toilet (common to have at Swedish summer houses).
