Maison Fish are beyond excited to be leading a retreat in a land that sees your daydreams and raises you realities. Iceland is an unforgettable travel experience which humbles you with the magnificence of its raw nature. Its landscapes are vast and unique, playing with extremities and contrasts like no other place on this planet. Commonly known as the Land of Fire and Ice, Iceland has both active volcanoes and glaciers present all around the Island. We believe that when a conscious journey into Body, Mind, Spirit is taken amongst such monumental Nature, the opportunity to move though a deeply transformative experience is open to us.
So let us present to you, Maison Fish ICELAND!
Fern E. Trelfa, Cherub Sanson and Alana Holloway (Fodder + Plonk) will be leading you through your five night soul shaking adventure at the top of the world.
We’ll be leading this retreat through the lens of the Five Elements. Looking towards the worlds of Chinese Medicine and Ayerveda, we can recognise Earth, Water, Fire, Air , Space within the Nature around us, our very own bodies and the food we put in it. With the Icelandic backdrop as our inspiration, our intention is for you to feel truly connected to all the natural magic around and within you.
Fern E. Trelfa will be leading this retreat from a yoga and movement point of view. Staying rooted in traditional yoga philosophy is an important part of Fern’s practice, however her physical practice has moved away from traditional asana. Fern works with passion in guiding people towards finding a greater understanding of their own individual bodies, exploring the ways in which it organically wants to move, release and build itself. You can expect to work with creative vinyasa that feel good in the body, taking influences from Feldenkrais, contemporary dance and the martial arts.
For this retreat, we’ll be working with the over arching question of how we can evoke the qualities of Earth, Air, Fire, Water Space through our bodies, breath and meditation. Expect to explore questions about yourself on a physical, mental and spiritual level, taking home with you an understanding of how a contemporary yoga practice can support the individual being that you are.
Cherub Sanson has come on board representing the Elements of Air and Space through her incredible work with Voice and Sound. In her sound journeys, you can expect to experience a high frequency fusion of planet gongs, drums, flutes and chimes to guide you into a deep and blissful state of pure presence. The healing harmonics are known to stimulate your immune system and promote the release of seratonin & dopamine - happy chemicals - helping you to relax & feel amazing. Maison Fish love working with Cherub – she has an incredible gift for opening the gates of Spirit for those who operate in logic, yet gives those who like to fly a place a land. We ask you to suspend any disbelief when working with our Cosmic Fish, and simply ride her spell to see where you end up.
Alana Holloway, our very own Mamma Fish, will be bringing her knowledge, talent and amazing laugh to the Maison Fish kitchen. Her delicious and therapeutic menu will be supporting a Five Elements approach to nourishment, and Alana will be presenting you with what you are eating and why at every mealtime. You will receive two hearty meals per day, an ‘afternoon fuel up’ along with yummy turmeric milks and as many cups of tea as you can drink.
Alana’s personal journey with the healing powers of food has been very inspirational. Following a chronic skin conditional, Alana was left no choice but to make major changes to her health and it all started with learning how to treat her gut with the respect it deserves. Alana has since become an ambassador for gut love, and will be leading a Fermentation Workshop with Maison Fish guests. It’s her purpose to share with others how they can heal and nourish themselves through food at the deepest of levels.
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.
