retreat to rest and re-connect
Your time to source wellbeing and vitality
This 4-day retreat is an invitation for you to remember and return to a place of wellbeing and nourishment.
For most of us, coming back to balance is not so much a practice of learning something new, acquiring yet another skill and adding new things to master to our already packed and busy lives.
Returning to balance is much rather an act of unlearning and unbecoming - releasing the urge to perform and achieve and instead find comfort in rest and stillness.
"A perfect retreat that nourished my body, mind and soul!
I could have stayed forever!"
It is when we return to the a place of inner spaciousness and calm, that we are reminded of ourselves as part of something greater and can connect to ourselves, those around us and all of life with kindness and compassion.
It is also from this space of connection to that part of us that is at ease, at peace and at rest that we can adapt to change and respond to life’s challenges with greater confidence and calm.
Join us in coming together in community and in practice to meet ourselves and live life in full color and vibrancy, open ourselves to receiving the gift of life wholly and thoroughly.
Throughout this 4-day retreat we will explore the deeply nourishing practices of yin yoga, yoga nidra and sound healing. In addition to these practices, you will learn about nervous system regulation through the power of your breath, and nourishment through Ayurveda. A wide spectrum of tools, practices and ancient wisdom on how to keep your cup full.
Located at Villa Saga just outside of Helsinki, you will experience nature’s abundance at its finest: Finnish forests only a few steps away, a nearby lake to take a dip or enjoy an evening of sauna and woodfired tub in the backyard.

"Amira’s and Sabrina’s retreats are not just any yoga retreats, but life-changing journeys to slow down, to get to know yourself and to authentically meet other people.
I have participated in two retreats and they are among the best experiences in my life.
Slowing down might not be easy but if you’re willing to do it, you might be surprised by its impact on your life!"
the venue: Villa Saga
We will gather at Villa Saga located in Kirkkonummi - just a short 30 min drive from the city center of Helsinki, Finnland.
Villa Saga is a modern and light-filled space that offers everything and more we need for our retreat:
bright rooms, a fireplace, a windoswill lounge to relax, a sauna and a woodfired tub, a large kitchen and beautiful dining room and of course the heart piece: a spacious Yoga Shala.
Nature is present all around the Villa. The serene views of the landscape pour right in from the windows and turn this space into an oasis of calm and tranquility. The beautiful finnish forests are just a few steps outside Villa Saga and allow for the most grounding walks under the trees, as well as walks into the deep forest.
Expect to rest deeply, be among nature and sacred community.
You will be sleeping in a bedroom with either 3 or 4 individual beds. Each bed has a curtain for privacy and a futon of all natural materials for your comfort. There is multiple shared bathrooms on all floors.

meet your hosts
Amira & Sabrina
we met on a small Indonesian island during a Yin Yoga training back in 2018. a couple days into the training, not havning spoken a single word yet, Amira walks up to Sabrina and says
'I have a feeling we will become great friends' and hugged her.
this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
a friendship in which we continue to see one another for who we truly are, encourage each outher to grow and evolve.
a friendship that holds space for belly laughs, heart to heart chats, sharing dreams & visions, tarot card readings, dancing the night away in the clubs of Berlin but also disagreements, uncomfortable conversations, allowing ourselves to be seen in fear & insecurity.
a friendship in which we hold the shared vision of continuously meeting each other with open hearts.
it is only through this friendship that we have created this retreat - it is truly a shared dream of ours, a dream that only exists because this soul connection exists.
I am a Finland-born yogini, devoted to traditional teachings and practices of Yoga and Ayurveda. I've been studying and sharing the wisdom of yoga for the past 5 years, and along with tantric hatha yoga my heart has been stolen by the ever-so-sweet yin yoga... I believe that the answers, the wisdom, and our capacity to heal ourselves all lie within - all we need to do is slow down, and tune in to listen & receive. You can learn more about me here.
It is my intention to guide you from a gross, externalized experience back to the subtlelty of life - remembering your essence and power.
I do this through my work as a Self-Leadership Coach and the practices of Yin Yoga, Meditation & Sound. You can learn more about myself and my work here.
