Yoga & Meditation
Yoga & meditation retreats, courses & workshops
Yoga and Hiking
Having nature and yoga as key inspirations in life, Åsa is pleased to lead yoga-hikes out in the National Park. The groups step out into the forest, partly in silence, to take in the lush nature. In chosen locations the group practices yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises) and other meditation techniques. Puja and mantra are often a part of the program. With longer hikes, a vegetarian meal is included, but the shorter hikes require you to carry your own meal. Sometimes the yoga hikes are included as part of a larger retreat. Åsa has been inspired by her colleague Ulrika who has regularly organized yoga hikes for years. (yogavandring.se)
