About this trip

Join us as we retreat to Eirð, an exclusive water front retreat on Iceland's south coast. Eirð is located on a peninsula by Lake Gislholtsvatn, providing extra privacy with a connection to nature and an opportunity to practice mindfulness.


Icelandic locals describe September as the time of year to say goodbye to the midnight sun and hello to the northern lights.  The earth seems to inhale in autumn, drawing its energy downward.  This is a time to release old patterns, much like trees letting go of their leaves; a time to prepare inwardly for the silent, peaceful spirit of winter; a time to review our "harvest" of accomplishments and redefine our intentions.  Attuning to this change of seasons is the perfect backdrop for a yoga retreat, giving ourselves quiet space for introspection, evaluation and contemplation.  It can also be an opportunity to plan how we will spend the coming longer winter evenings - perhaps taking our cue from the earth to do less and savoring the darkness, without which their would be no light!  


Our yoga practices will reflect the the calm, expansive spirit of Iceland and the seasonal shift into autumn with slow movement, steady breathing, silent meditation, plus poetry and daily journaling prompts to provide focus and inspiration.  As with all of our retreats, everything is optional and you are encouraged to craft the week to give yourself exactly what you need.  We are eagerly anticipating a magical journey to Iceland with you!!

Amazing!! Sybil and Nicole outdid themselves with this retreat. Beautiful accommodations with great staff and wonderful meals. Side trips to a vineyard and the lavender fields, and inhouse massages were a definite plus. Well planned yoga classes while listening to the birds and feeling the warm summer breeze! Incredible!!

The trip exceeded my expectations, and it was a high bar! The villa was fabulous, the rooms well appointed and spacious, the villa gorgeous and the scenery and grounds out of this world. The yoga studio was perfect and I loved practicing with the view out to the olive trees and the countryside. I enjoyed the yoga sessions, and the timing was good. Classes were a bit more challenging than I’m used to, but I was ok modifying. Sound bath was the best I have experienced. Food was mostly excellent though I did expect more seafood and more pasta, and hoped for a truffle dish or two. The excursions were great, enjoyed both the wine tasting and the lavender.
