About this trip

Join Kelly Smith, founder of Yoga For You and the host of the Mindful in Minutes podcast, for a 7-day, 6-night yoga and meditation retreat in beautiful Iceland. The JoyFULL life yoga retreat will help you cultivate and celebrate the joy and meaning you deserve in life. Each day you will join Kelly for a morning asana yoga practice, followed by some well deserved relaxation while taking in the stunning Icelandic scenery, seeing the sights, or maybe going for a mindfulness walk in the beauty that surrounds you. In the late afternoon join Kelly for a dharma talk or workshop on everything from how to cultivate a joyFULL and meaningFULL life, to how to start a home meditation practice and make it stick. Then in the evening unwind and restore with a relaxing yoga nidra or meditation practice after dinner to prepare you for a great night’s rest. 


Each day will include a yoga and mindfulness practice, personal time to connect with Kelly, free time to enjoy Iceland, or cultivate your personal practice, and a special activity. This retreat will be everything that you need to start living a JoyFULL life and build your yoga and meditation practice, no matter what level you are at. This retreat will also include special opportunities to see Iceland’s golden circle, and Blue Lagoon. 


The retreat will be set at the Héraðsskólinn Hostel in Laugarvatn. Héraðsskólinn was derived from the school that was operated from 1928-1995 in this beautiful building. The culture and the famous history of the school is visible throughout the main building for guests to enjoy.


Located in the heart of Iceland's most popular destination - The Golden Circle, the village of Laugarvatn sits on the shore of a charming lake by the same name. 60 minutes from Reykjavik capital and 90 minutes from Keflavik International Airport, the town is an intersection of natural beauty and historical importance.


It has many natural wonders close by such as the Northern lights, geothermal baths, hiking, fishing, river rafting – just name it, you’ll find it here.

Meet your Teacher

Kelly Smith is an E-RYT-500, YACEP, founder of Yoga For You and the Yoga For You teaching method and is the host of the mindful in minutes podcast. 


Kelly's method of teaching, the Yoga For You Method,  believes teachers should meet students each day wherever they are at in their journey and celebrate the differences in each student. Kelly started with a small, modest studio in the rural midwest and has since expanded to hundreds of students located all throughout the US, Canada, and the UK. Kelly has been teaching for over 6 years and has taught over 4,000 classes and 2,000 private sessions. 


Most recently, Kelly has expanded her mission to make yoga possible for everybody, and has started training, mentoring, and coaching new instructors that are beginning to build their yoga business and help their students thrive. Kelly believes that yoga is a deeply personal practice. There is not a one-size fits all approach to yoga, mindfulness, and movement. Her goal is not to change you, as she believes "everything you need is already inside of you, you just need to let it shine".

This was our first experience traveling abroad. Everything, and I mean everything was taken into consideration and all in place for us. Transportation, accommodations, meals, activities, and Yoga were ALL TOP NOTCH❣️ Iceland is a beautiful country, and we plan to travel again next year with Adzenture Retreats and Kelly Smith.
Wow wow wee, where to even begin? I cannot thank Daniela and Kelly enough for organizing the most magical experience in Iceland. The pre-planning they put into this trip gave our group such a calm and carefree experience, something I was not expecting because traveling typically comes with some unwanted stress (especially planning for an ENTIRE GROUP!) I cannot compliment them enough for how smoothly each day went! Everyday had just the right amount of time for activities, relaxation, togetherness, yoga, meditation, and great conversations. These two were dynamic together and did not miss a beat. I felt so safe, happy, and relaxed each and every day in Iceland with Adzenture Retreats. Thank you again and again for the best trip of my life, and for letting me document it all!! Andi Andi B Photography
A fantastic experience!! Well organized, beautiful and comfortable surroundings, awesome people! Highly recommended!!
I think it will go down as one of my best Adventures. It was well-planned with a lot of time for sightseeing and balanced nicely with wonderful yoga experiences. There was plenty of time for rest relaxation and recuperation. Food was great lodging and roommates were wonderful. The only drawback was to remember Iceland is very very expensive. So go prepared not only for the cold weather but with extra money to spend. I will give it a five star rating

From my booking to departure, Adzenture Retreats was commited to making sure my journey to Bali was seamless. Azma directed the Journey with Jaime retreat in Bali and saying she was Ah-mazing does not begin to describe the work she did. Very well with commication and details of the trip. Great problem solver and quick with it. When our driver to get us from Kuta to Ubud went to the wrong location, Azma came up with a plan B super fast! She is great at what she does and does it without effort. The retreat schedule was fun and included adequate free time for people to do the things they wanted to do and create individual experiences in Bali. Thank you Azma for showing us a wonderful time!
