Summer Solstice Yoga
and Wellness Journey

Sweden | June 18-23, 2023


Sold out! 

We are officially sold out for 2023! 


Ground. Recenter. Energize.

Celebrate the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, Swedish-style!  Honor the seasonal shift by aligning with the energies of abundance and opportunity. Retreat from your busy life to rejuvenate mind, body and spirit in a beautiful spa on the edge of a fjord in West Sweden. Anchor into and reconnect with your values; remember what's important to you. When you root firmly into the present moment, you can rise up and emerge as your most authentic Self. 


Soak in warm pools and saunas, learn about the Swedish art of balanced living, “lagom”, make flower crowns, and enjoy daily yoga and meditation, wellness workshops, nourishing organic meals, kayaking, and nature walks in the nearby forest. Return home feeling grounded, recentered, and energized. 

Why Sweden? 

Midsummer is a celebration of the summer solstice, and one of the most important holidays in Sweden. It is a celebration of the longest day of the year, a celebration of life and love that brings communities together. Several elements of Swedish culture align well with yoga philosophy - including closeness to nature, living a balanced life, and taking care of your body. Join us for a unique experience that combines yoga, wellness, exploration, and Swedish culture!

The retreat will take place at Vann, a gorgeous luxury spa and hotel located in the middle of a nature reserve by the Gullmarsfjord in Bohuslän, West Sweden – the perfect getaway to reconnect and recenter. 

You'll be captivated by the fresh, clean air and the wide energizing views; steep cliffs plunging into the fjord, sandy beaches and the dense surrounding forest. Vann is a 4-star hotel and well known in Sweden for its 1,000 square meter spa facility, designed by one of Sweden's greatest contemporary architect, Gert Wingårdh. The character of the interior is Scandinavian minimalism, where Bohuslän's environment is carefully embraced. 

You will have your own bedroom and private bathroom. Workshops and yoga classes will be held in a dedicated yoga space which provides yoga mats, blocks, blankets and bolsters. You'll also have daily access to the multiple pools and saunas (morning and evenings) and the option to book additional spa treatments and massages. Kayaks are also available to explore the fjord waters. 



All meals are organic, sourced locally, and thoughtfully created by professional chefs at VANN. Meals are sure to be a sensory experience - starting with gorgeous colors and presentation, followed by incredible flavor!

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served community-style (buffet) in the main building, alongside other guests who may not be part of our retreat. With an appropriate amount of notice, we can accommodate any dietary need or restriction.


Fika (Swedish coffee break) will be provided daily, and includes fresh coffee, tea, and delicious Swedish treats!
