This is the first year that SEEDS organises an intensely yoga related project. The camp will be a mixture of a workcamp and a yoga retreat. SEEDS will work together with yogias, a junior yoga teacher from Amsterdam and former SEEDS international camps coordinator in 2010.
Be ready for daily vinyasa style flow yoga classes as well as restorative yoga and meditation sessions amongst other yogic activities and surprises. We will establish a daily yoga practise in a gentle and regular schedule. Besides there will surely be enough free time to explore the city and to dive into the local swimming pools.
A SEEDS coordinator will work with the group to organise our daily chores and popular camp activities such as excursions, free time in town and an international evening. Please contribute to this international dinner with some vegetarian food or non-alcoholic beverage typical for your country to be shared all together in the group.
Participants should have an affinity for yoga and a motivation to practise daily is required. Although some yoga experience is beneficial, an advanced level of experience is not needed. Yoga is for everybody and every body. Make sure to bring your own yoga mat, clothes and maybe block and belt, if needed for your practise. A blanket and cushion would come in handy too. There will be no extra mats or props available. Maybe youd also like to have a dear object or picture with you for your personal focus. You should bring along an affinity for yoga wit
Accommodation and food:
SEEDS participants will stay in a house in Reykjavík. The accommodation is basic or in other words: ashram style. We will create our space for yoga practise in the same house. The facilities are basic with a shower, washing machine, kitchen and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. We will sleep in shared rooms in a sleeping bag accommodation. Please bring your own sleeping bag.
We will receive food supplies and you will be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international dinner. Please consider only vegetarian foods, for we will keep a strict vegetarian diet in this yoga workcamp.
