Dear Bjarke and Audhild,
I wanted to say thank you for the most amazing five days. When I was looking for a yoga retreat and deciding where to go, I found places in Thailand, San Francisco, mainland Spain, the Canary Islands, Greece, etc.
And I chose your retreat because I wanted to do proper yoga and learn proper meditation. I got that, and so much more than I ever expected. I feel like a cleaned up, better version of myself and I’ve laughed more in the past five days than I have all year. Bjarke, I loved your explanation of the energy meditation as housekeeping for the chakras. Clean them up through the meditation and everything neatly falls into place. Audhild, I really enjoyed the Sufi dancing. I didn’t expect to, but it was great fun. And it was the loveliest group of people I’ve come across in a long time. As Maja said, everyone was such good company even during the silent period. Thank you for bringing us together and making the friendships possible.
Please could you also pass my thanks on to Robert for spoiling us with the gorgeous vegan food. That was worth the trip in itself!
I look forward to returning to the school and seeing you both again on another retreat.
On all our Yoga Retreats the main activity is the deepgoing exploration of the original and authentic yoga:
Asanas, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha, Pratyahara, Deep Relaxation, Concentration and Meditation in the Tradition of Swami Satyananda and Swami Janakananda. On returning home you have the tools to get back to inner peace, energy and well being.
In addition – as a + activity – you will also get:
- Exceptional good vegeterian food
- Having a good time in the Sauna – bathing in the sea (5 m from the Sauna!)
- Canoing along the seashore exploring the idyllic surroundings
- Shorter and longer Walks in the surrounding hills and mountains
- Just relaxing enjoying the atmosphere of peace and quietness of Ask Retreat Centre
- On the longer Retreats – the 5- and 10-days and the Easter Retreats – we will be Silent for 1-3 days
