Festival Theme 2017

Relax RestoreRetreat

This year’s yoga festival is about pausing, relaxing and returning to your inner truth – your yoga! We invited a lot of inspiring yoga teachers who have all chosen their own path, fulfilling their own truth. Yoga teachers who all share the experience of life as something simple and good!

Relax

Existing without effort, a life in flow. The new trend in yoga is returning to Patanjali’s words of stirham suham – to practice yoga effortlessly. When we allow ourselves to do so, we let go of tensions, worries and demands, and we find a deep peace and new strength within ourselves.

Restore

Returning to Source. To the essence of being. With every breath, we have the possibility to let go of demands and embrace our very core. When doing so, we access an enormous power and an inexhaustible source of life.

Retreat

A place for stillness and recovery, which, in an ever-faster spinning world, is exactly what we need right now. Pause – take a conscious breath – and just allow yourself to be.

The yoga mat is a place for being with yourself in all that you are – your body, your mind and your resistances. The yoga class offers a moment of presence and acceptance that will bring you more energy and lust for life.

You create your own retreat by choosing the yoga classes that suit you and your level throughout the day.

<p>He has managed to integrate all the information he has gathered and use it in the most optimal way possible.</p>

Michael Gustafson

Gong Master

I am deeply thankful to, once again, play the Gong with my fellow Gongmasters at this year Yoga festival.

Biography:

<p> Michael Gustafson is a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and Gongmaster. I serve as a Captain Navy and doctor in Military Science at the Swedish Defence University where I offer yoga training to officer students. My path is to bring Kundalini Yoga and Meditation to the military forces as a leadership tool to support resilience. This with a perspective that includes spiritual training, seen as a skill to connect to one’s inner self and relation to the great mysteries of life, love and death. Yoga delivers a vast potential to transform and acquire courage to be the warrior of light we all actually are. After a period of Hatha Yoga training, the inspiring meeting with Kundalini Yoga at Ängsbacka in 2010 marked the entrance to a new life road. I discovered in KY a strong and adaptable training regime. Gong training with Mehtab Benton during 2015 marked a second way enhancing yoga and meditation practice. I have a deep interest in Kundalini Yoga, Sikhism warfare and warrior traditions, Gong playing and meditation, Tantra philosophy, Shamanism, Western mysticism and Magick traditions. </p>
