Excited by the great success of the first Yoga Retreat we had in May 2016 in Norway, we, in Tønsberg Yoga, have decided to follow up with a second retreat in 2017. This time we are planning to introduce one of the most ancient texts on the Vedanta philosophy called the Mandukya Upanishad.
During this week-long retreat we’ll daily practice meditation, Asana, Pranayama, and study of philosophy.
Location: The retreat will take place in a beautiful Mountain Lodge called Nythun Høyfjellstue, which is located in the beautiful Valdres mountain, 2,5 hours drive from Sandvika,Oslo, Norway´s capital. http://www.nythun.com
Teachers: The retreat will be taught by Swami Kashi, who is a monk from India, and Nina Nesheim, who is the founder-director of Tønsberg Yoga Center. For more information of the teachers see below.
Accommodation and diet: Nythun Lodge is situated in a pictorial place on the bank of a charming lake surrounded by dense forests. It has beautiful cabins for singles or doubles. Run by two distinguished chefs, the food in Nythun is famous for its quality, uniqueness and and great taste. During the retreat we’ll enjoy delicious, nutritious, and tasty vegetarian food served by professionals.
Teachings: During the retreat we’ll study an ancient text called the Mandukya Upanishad, which teaches a special meditation technique. It is one of the most important texts of all eastern traditions. We’ll also be introduced to the Yogic way of life, which promotes physical and mental health and generates deep peace of mind. Through daily philosophy classes, Yoga classes, and sessions of meditation we’ll get rejuvenated and recharge ourselves completely.
