Thursday 13th - Tuesday 18th September 2018.
Join Lolo Lam for a premium yoga retreat immersed within some of Planet's Earth's most immense nature. Iceland is an unforgettable travel destination that has you feeling as though you're on another planet. The human gaze is treated to an ever changing, other worldly landscape. One minute it’s snow capped mountain peaks and glacial rivers; moments later spongy moss fields and wild horses with a back drop of cascading waterfalls; followed by baron black lava field as dark as charcoal...
Stemming from the country's immesne Nature is legendary myth and folklore which is woven deeply into Icelandic culture. We may presume that characters such as mountain trolls and forest faieries live solely in the realm of fantasy, but when spending time in the Land of Fire and Ice, it is possible that you will reconsider…
Fall under the spell of yogini Lolo Lam and explore Another World. We invite you to suspend any disbelief and play with us in some of our planets most monumental nature. Together we will move, breathe, explore ad be reminded of Yeats' famous words - there is Another World, but it is found within this one.
What is inluded:
- Sacred Mornings - sunrise ritual, pranayama (breath work), silent walks, live music meditation.
- Two hour dynamic yoga every morning wirth Lolo.
- Restorative, yin, yoga Nidra in our evenings.
- Expeditions into Iceland’s immense Nature and integrated activities including Blue Lagoon, Geysirs and some other more 'secret' spots.
- Icelandic Myth and Storytelling evening from Maison Fish retreats.
- Integrated journaling.
- Meeting new friends and cultivating 'sangha'.
- Free time to soak in the geo thermal hot tub, sauna, hike, read, relax.
- A vegetarian menu with food sourced from the land.
- Opportunities to indulgle in private treatments with Fern (additional cost)
- Included transfers from the airport / to la Maison
Lolo Lam will be your yoga guide for our time together.
We will begin each day with a two hour practice, inviting a soft flow of energy to awaken our bodies slowly. We will move through creative and mindful sequencing, with a question of how we can find greater space within our own bodies and greater grace within our movement. Some morning's with Lolo you can expect a strong and challenging practice, as she turns our world's upside down and we play on our hands. This yogini is masterful at adapting the practice so all experiences feel included and welcome.
The late afternoons will consist of a 'pick n mix' practice combining pranayama & meditation, restorative yoga and maybe 'workshop' anything from the morning practice that you would like to explore more. Evening classes will be by an open fire and before a setting sun.
We cant wait to take Lolo to Iceland. This land and the way she sees the world belong together. Over the past seven years we've watched Lolo make her move from being a nurse to Ayurveda practitioner, and then to becoming the yogini that she is today. Lolo holds integrity and power together with grace. She listens, feels and supports. With Celtic ancestory running through her blood, Lolo truly is a creature of Nature.
Fern will be your in house therapist ….
Fern Trelfa is a body worker and yoga practitioner. A treatment with her offers a deep, fluid and energetic exchange that will take you apart and put you back together again. Fern will work intuitively and precisely to remove tension out of your body. You can expect to find release in the physical, and some describe an emotional release too. Her intention is for you to feel a greater sense of freedom in your body and experience a deep relaxation arise from somewhere deep inside. Fern will also weave Reiki energy into your treatment too.
Our live in chef or 'Mamma Fish' will make sure we are all nourished abundantly deep down into your cells. Our menu is based around whole foods that taste amazingly good. This will be a hearty feast of a vegetarian retreat, of course with any vegans and dietary requests warmly welcomed. All of our ingredients are sourced freshly from local suppliers as best as we can muster with high quality organic products whenever possible. We refuse to compromise on the quality of eggs, dairy or butter. Mamma Fish is happy to talk you through her recipes so you can take the magic home.
Our jaws dropped when we first discovered the new Maison Fish home at the top of the world. We lit a candle and said a prayer to the manifestation Gods, and now we are so excited to make this vision a reality in such a special place.
Situated South of the Island conveniently close to Thingvellir National Park , Maison Fish ICELAND is a premium lodge with its very own fifteen person hot tub, fire pit, gym and sauna. Our retreat home is nestled away from any light pollution at the bottom of a mountain, enabling a truly magical experience of the Northern Lights (if they choose to visit!).
Our house is decorated to a decadent and high standard- think exposed wood, chandeliers and cosy, comfy corners for you to curl up with a book or journal. Maison Fish will transform a sacred space into our spacious yoga shala, adorned with candles and trinklets of magic to create a truly beautiful shell for us to open up and move through our yoga journey.
Maison Fish ICELAND will be our luxurious home at the top of the world. Fall back into the soft, warm nest that the Maison Fish team will expertly create for you and simply soak it all up.
