On the day of arrival (around 16.00 o'clock) and the day of departure (also around 16.00) the program will look different. There will however, be a YUM practice on both of those days and proper ceremonies with all the sparkles imaginable.
Know always that this is your time and you can spend it 100% like you prefer it to.
The practices will have their foundation in Vinyasa-style but with time and space for explorations of all kinds! The physical practice is the space where we invite the knowledge of the body to speak its language and to bring to surface what's yet unconscious for us.
Every practice will be followed by meditation and pranayama for a full circle experience. We are not "just" our physical bodies. There's also the energetic body as well as the emotional body. We will meet every layer of our Being in these practices.
For afternoon- and evening workshops we will touch down on Yoga-philosophy but also expression, writing, Satsang-gatherings and selfcare practices. The main goal for each of these sessions are that you get to explore multiple parts of the amazing You that you are, and the different ways to meet her.
Don't underestimate yourself if you are moving gently.

On a small island, in a small country, only a short ferry-ride away from either Hou or Kalundborg a magical place has its roots. Hidden away between fields and trees lies Mellem-rummet.
"The space in between."
Which is exactly what it is. That peaceful moment between the thoughts. That restful pause after the exhale and right before the inhale. This is where we shall stay. Resting in simple surroundings and esthetics to allow full focus on the Journey itself.
The shala is as beautiful as it gets and has this sanctuary-feel to it. Her light yet strong frame will create the perfect frame for each practice and gathering. Darkness tends to be overwhelming in October but in this this space, we will get to see our inner flame light it all up.
Mellem-rummet is only a short walk from the ocean, as well as a hidden beach, where we will frolic and feel for ourselves what this life is really about.
Of course we will also be taking the best care possible of our physical vessel. Whenever our bodies, as well as minds, are working hard, we need to feed it accordingly. How we eat and drink is such a nurturing way of respecting the whole Self that we are.
For this retreat you will get 3 meals/day - all vegan/vegetarian from locally sourced produce around Samsø. Just beautiful! Throughout the entire day there will also be access to tea, coffee ( I see you coffee-drinkers!), fruit and light snacks.

Nanna came across Yoga in 2015 and used it as a complimentarary practice to her Crossfit and weightlifting practice after too many injuries and too little caretaking. Life as a personal trainer and crossfit/fitnesstrainer was a lot on the body. About a year later, Nanna literally dropped the weights and surrendered fully to the path of Yoga. From early on it became a daily ritual and a way of finding her way home. A home that she had never experienced like this before.
In combination with her degree as a Physical Therapist from VIA University College, where she was missing more knowledge on the subtle energies as well as the human mind, Yoga became the thing that allowed her profession to go full circle.
Since then Nanna has taken more than 300+ hours in official Yoga Teacher Training, an 8-week mindfulness course and 100+ hours in workshops from different teachers around the world. Nanna has taught 2000+ hours in studios since she started teaching Yoga in 2017 and is all about the felt experience more than anything else.
Nanna's thoughts on guiding Asana is pretty simple. She considers the combination of movement and breath a way to keep life flowing through us. It helps us feeling our bodies in ways no other movement-style does. Asana-practice with Nanna is therefore a combination of thorough anatomic cues to move the body in a safe way and also connecting to that special energy that's always bubbling within you.
She don't really care about how flexible you are or how long you can invert yourself for. She cares more about how you hold yourself. How you use the physical practice to move in direction of whatever seduces your lungs. The simple fact that we're able to breathe and move is an epiphany of magical systems in place - Nanna sees Asana as a way of honoring that.
Whether you find yourself under the guidance of Nanna in a physical, a mental or a philosophical setting, expect to be challenged. Expect new ways of looking at yourself, your world and the way you move in it. She's gonna be there for every step of the way.
Nanna holds a love for you and a deep belief in you from the second you're under her wing. She has your back and she's here to guide you until you have it for yourself as well.
