Join Emma Henry for a mid-summer yoga retreat in Senja, Norway. Located in the Arctic Circle this remote destination offers a deep experience in wild nature with its dramatic mountains, crystal clear turquoise waters, white beaches and beautiful fjords. With 24 hour daylight there is plenty of time to enjoy the quiet beauty of this secluded paradise and experience the midnight sun, a prolonged sunset and sunrise all at once where everything is bathed in a magical reddish light.

Clear

Summary

This is one of our more adventurous European yoga retreats. Our yoga retreat destination is Senja island, at the foot of Sukkertoppen mountain close to Bergsfjorden where steep, majestic mountains dive straight into the sea and pearly white beaches line the islands.

You stay in luxury apartments set around the harbour of an old fishing village with uninterrupted views out to the surrounding islets and azure sea. Immerse yourself in a powerful Jivamukti yoga practice with twice daily classes and enjoy delicious vegetarian meals. Between classes relax in the hot tub and sauna, book a massage and explore the wild nature all around.

Included in the yoga retreat is midnight sun hike up Sukkertoppen mountain. We head out in the afternoon with our guide walking through wild nature and lush vegetation, past a mountain lake where we pause for a picnic dinner before heading to the top of the mountain where you will find beautiful rugged cliffs and an amazing view over the fjord and the surrounding mountains.

There is also the options to explore Bergsfjorden by kayak where the clear waters and many small islands make for a beautiful adventure, possibly spotting seals and eagles on the way.

Yoga with Emma Henry

Senior Jivamukti teacher Emma Henry will teach daily yoga classes. Morning classes will be 2.5 hours and you’ll experience a strong Jivamukti practice. Afternoon sessions will be workshop style or more restorative.

Each Jivamukti class offers a dynamic asana practice that is infused with inspiring teachings derived from the ancient yogic texts. Classes will include chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation.

Modifications and progressions are given so that everyone will find these yoga classes rewarding but this retreat is not suitable for complete beginners. We recommend that you have previous experience of a flow class and enjoy being challenged by a dynamic style of yoga. It is a yoga style that will require you to commit to your classes.

    We signed up for the retreat to Reine within minutes of it becoming a reality. Jools had worked hard to ensure that our travel to Reine was memorable via the Hurtigruten along some of the most picturesque Norwegian waters. Five hours of revitalising yoga each day made us both more flexible and stronger. The weather is always unpredictable in Norway and this led to some schedule changes for some of the events – midnight sun hunting for example – which Jools communicated simply and easily. Everyone got the chance to take part in trips.Full marks to Jools for leading the week so practically for the benefit of all of us. She ensured the cohesion of the group whilst being kind and totally approachable.
