Join our Norway yoga retreat with Reclaim Yourself Retreats and myself to experience an amazing landscape with great mountains, vast valleys, deep fjords, and historical Norwegian farmland. Combine twice daily yoga and delicious Norwegian meals with invigorating hikes to breathtaking peaks and spectacular viewpoints. Between activities, enjoy captivating views, rejuvenate in the bath house, rest and savour the peacefulness of our nature filled location.

Our family owned and run retreat location is on the northwest coast of Norway, around 1.5 hours from Ålesund and in the middle of the famous Norwegian scenic route. On our doorstep is Reinheimen National Park, several nature reserves and Tafjord, a hidden UNESCO world heritage fjord.

You’ll stay in beautiful, award-winning rooms, designed so that you feel deeply connected to the surrounding landscape. With sumptuous beds and wonderful views, each room blends seamlessly into the surrounding natures and offers complete peace and privacy. At the heart of the retreat is a 100 year-old restored farm building, where the old the cow byre is now a dining room with an open fire, and the old hay store has been turned into the lounge area.

Yoga will takes place in a large riverside room, where glass walls look out onto the river and mossy woodlands. Nearby is the bath house, a tranquil and refreshing spa built into the land by the river, where you’ll find a steam sauna, hot tub, a silent room, showers and our treatment room. Massages available.

The area around us is a paradise for off the beaten path hiking in quiete and peaceful surroundings. You can explore lovely peaks, ancient mountain farms and wonderful viewpoints.

Your retreat accommodation

We have 15 places on this retreat, sleeping in beautifully designed “landscape” and “birdhouse” rooms, along with 2 farmhouse rooms.

Our seven award winning “landscape rooms” are cubes on stilts, with glass walls that offer a striking view of the valley, the forest or the river below.

Every room has one or two walls that are entirely built in glass and every room gets its own exclusive view of the landscape. No room looks into another, so the rooms are private even though curtains are not an option!

All the rooms have a dark interior to avoid stealing focus from the scenery and include a double bed and a small bathroom. For those sharing these rooms as twin rooms, a very comfortable but smaller second bed will be added to the room.

Our two “birdhouse” rooms have a minimalist architectural style and resemble a traditional Norwegian log house. The rooms are 8 square metres in total, but provide a comfortable double bed, a small sofa bench and a toilet.

The interior is light, with large windows designed to let nature in and smaller windows that provide extra glimpses of the world outside. From the bed, you can look out on the mountainside. The rooms have a tiny bathroom with only a small handheld shower, but the nearby bath house is available for showering around the clock.

Your retreat menu

Our resident chef team create resplendent meals with traditional Norwegian recipes and ingredients.

Brunch: We start the day with good bread and freshly made jam, cereal, homemade scrambled eggs and smoked salmon prepared in the traditional style. In addition to freshly brewed coffee and tea, we offer locally sourced apple juice from the valley. Guests are welcome to make their own packed lunches from the breakfast table if they are heading out hiking!

Dinner: Our three course dinner is enjoyed family style at a long table in the cow barn. Meals are home cooked and hearty and will include some meat or fish. Vegetarian and vegan meals are available on request.

Take a few days for yourself. Join Charlie Polizzi and Zephyr Wildman for a wonderful week of yoga, walking and pranayama/breath work this October at The Star in Alfriston. Alfriston is a lovely village set in the foot of the East Sussex Downs. On the banks of the Cuckmere River, the sea and the magnificent Seven Sisters chalk cliffs are within walking distance.

The Star is a 15th century inn, with additions from the 1930s and 1960s, located in Alfriston, a traditional downland village with medieval roots.

When we deliberately choose to become aware of the breath, we can use it like a tool to anchor and bring stability to body and mind.

The breath work is not suitable for pregnant women or those who have had surgery in the last two years unless you have consent from your doctor.

Full Board
Buffet or cooked breakfast to order for those who want it, a vegan buffet lunch of a soup and selection of salads and a three course dinner.
