The Retreat takes place in 2 different locations, Reykjavik and the Whale fjord . We will spend the first 3 nights in the capital of the country, Reykjavik, it is not a whirlwind metropolis. Few skyscrapers grace the skyline, traffic jams are rare and faces are familiar. But don't be deceived a steady beat of energy and events keeps the city alive and pulsing with excitement. Reykjavík is a city of bold contrasts: it is both cosmopolitan and small-town; vibrant and sophisticated; young-at-heart and yet full of history.
Many monuments, new and old, are also worth a peek, including the newly built oceanfront music and conference center, Harpa. Luckily, everything in Reykjavík is close by, and the city is perhaps best explored by foot or bike. For the last part of the retreat we will stay in the countryside, surrounded by nature overlooking the stunning 'Hvalfjordur' ('Whale Fjord') it is a great place from which to view the aurora/northern lights. From there it is easy to explore Iceland’s numerous waterfalls, glaciers, geothermals and geology.
Incorporating traditional elements of both Astanga and Iyengar yoga, Ari’s classes promote precision and efficiency of movement, and demand a willingness to examine and redefine one’s own habitual movement patterns. Each class makes evident Ari’s passion for physical expression as a gateway to access the innermost aspect of our being. Through the grace of the movements of the physical body, it is his hope that each student can imbue the same sense of grace and peace within. In the spirit of old hermetic adage: As above, so below; as within, so without.
Noah’s teaching has its roots in yoga but is not bound by tradition: Sometimes fluid, always informative. We will look at the geometric alignment of the body and the possibilities that arise in one’s movement by correcting body mechanics and introducing old and new movement patterns. Noah’s work is informed by intense study of music, meditation, breath work, diet, and numerous movement modalities (including: Yoga-Asana, Acrobatics, Gymnastics, various martial arts, Ballet, and WeightLifting). Noah has worked closely with yoga teachers of various styles (Katonah, Prana Flow, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga, Acro-Yoga), spanning well over a decade. Having experienced severe rheumatism and a full recovery from the debilitating disease he also brings first hand knowledge of moving through physical and mental challenges.
