THEME: "Traditions vs. trends in Yoga"

What is real and what has a substance in this popular culture of modern Yoga? How do we define a tradition? Does our practice help us understand Yoga a little better?

This is some of the questions we wish to discuss with you in this years festival. There is never one answer or method. We wish to create an open space to share perspectives, experience and ideas. "Truth is a moment when a multivoiced chorus of voices suddenly creates a chord, while every voice still keeps its distinctness." - Alexander Sidorkin (Russian philosopher and educator)

It will be a wide offer of yoga classes for every level. We have 3 studios with ongoing classes from morning to evening to make sure there's something that fits you. Study movements in body and mind, engage in interesting discussions and learn how to make tasty raw cakes. Most of all, here you have time to enjoy Nature - relaxing in the grass, by hiking, on a bike or a SUP board.

Our restaurant with its skilled chefs has a reputation of delivering outstanding vegetarian dishes everybody can enjoy. The diet is various and inspired by an international cuisine.

Welcome to the Norwegian Yoga Festival 2018!


 Mindfulness and Yoga - Summer Retreat with Jonathan Weber

Mindfulness and Yoga - Summer Retreat with Jonathan Weber

Join us for a rejuvenating 4 day retreat this summer in the beautiful setting of Nøsen Fjellhotel. With the transformative practices of mindfulness, compassion, and therapeutic yoga we learn to quiet the mind, open the heart, and heal the body; coming home to the peace of our authentic self.

Therapeutic yoga draws from many different styles of yoga to meet the individual where they are at in their physical and mental state, and restore balance to the whole system. We will be exploring a more gentle and mindful approach to yoga postures and movement that can be practiced by everyone. The emphasis will be the release of stress and tensions, while developing a more compassionate approach to our bodies, our challenges, and difficult emotions.

Mindfulness has become popular in our stressful modern times because of its documented benefits to improve well-being and its many therapeutic uses like reducing stress, anxiety, depression, and managing chronic pain or emotional reactivity. Mindfulness practice fosters present-moment awareness, helping us to become more focused, calm and resilient, so we can make wiser choices in our everyday life. Compassion and loving-kindness practices complement the mental training of mindfulness by working with attitudes that open the heart in an unconditional way, resulting in greater happiness and profound healing.

This retreat is especially suited for those looking to experience a quieter, more meditative form of yoga practice and to explore the healing potential of yoga and mindfulness.

Part of the retreat will be held in silence, to deepen the experience of self-reflection. No previous yoga or meditation experience required. Teaching is in English.

An Introduction to Acro-Yoga with Lukas Gustavson

An Introduction to Acro-Yoga with Lukas Gustavson



People who have had a taste of Acro yoga and wish to expand their skill set of flying asanas as well as understanding of Acro yoga


I wish to test my wings as a space holder and share the experience of efficient communication with more people


Nøsen Yoga og Fjellhotell -how to get here?


Workshop description:

This is a weekend of full immersion into Acro yoga. For three days you will learn and attain many tools which will accelerate your own practice and create more stability for both flyers and bases. This course is suitable for beginners who are just starting out their practice but also for slightly more seasoned Acro yogis who wish to expand their practice and go deeper into its different aspects. Throughout the weekend we will go into flying acrobatics which include lots of dynamic movements and playfulness. We will also cover the Therapeutic flying aspects of Acro yoga which could be described as a blend of Acro and Thai massage. It’s not required to come with a partner or to bring a yoga mat.

Price includes:

  • Holistic and healthy vegetarian food
  • Hotel rooms at one of Norway’s most beautiful spots, Nøsen Yoga Retreat Center
  • All classes, workshops and meditations



About the teachers:


Lukas Gustavson

Lukas has learned, taught and practiced Acro yoga all the way from Norway to New Zealand. Besides his great love for Acro he’s also completed over a thousand hours of teacher trainings involving Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Thai Massage. “The word yoga can be translated as Union and I have not seen any form of yoga which creates more Union than Acro Yoga. Within seconds complete strangers can gain a level of trust and understanding for each other that couldn’t be gained through a hundred years of small talk”


Rahel Güntert

From the beginning this journey has been a healing process for Rahel. Yoga has helped her out from suffering of anxiety and self doubt. A passion immediately turned into a lifestyle she couldn’t imagine of letting go again. When she started emerging herself into Acro Yoga she finally realized that touch and connection, she used to be afraid of more than falling, can be such a powerful and beautiful act of a human being. A journey through India and an intense course of 500h Ashtanga Vinyasa and Hatha in Rishikesh has opened the door to teach at many places and share exactly this union since more than two years.
“Acro Yoga for me is a place of connection, of union, trust and courage. A place I’ve met the most wonderful people. An act of openness. A moment of being myself and no one else.“
