Yoga Sadhana Intensive: a week deepening into Yoga

1. – 6. July 2018

This week is specialised for you who wish to go deeper into your Yoga practice. You will have an introduction to classical Yoga philosophy, learn breathing exercises to clear the mind and balance the body.

Early with the sunrise we start with Japa meditation, followed by a led Ashtanga Yoga class, pranayama, technique and introduction to classical Yoga philosophy. At daytime you have personal time to be outdoors, explore the beautiful surroundings and breathe in fresh mountain air. Before dinner we finish the day with a softer Yoga practice and pranayama for balancing the mind and healing the body.

Nature - Nøsen is located in a remote nature environment, and you will have plenty of time every day to go hiking, enjoy silence, swim in the mountain lake, bike, paddle or just relax in the grass.

Food - We serve exquisite vegetarian dishes following healthy, Ayurvedic principles. The price include 3 meals a day,

Accommodation - Double room/standard room is included in the price. If you wish for a single room, count an extra charge in the price.

Teacher, Alexander Medin

In 2015, Alexander took over what was then known as “Nøsen Fjellstue”, and started to transform it into Nøsen Yoga Mountain Retreat. The building was, at the time, in ruins. Today, the lodge can host up to 100 guests, and combines a distinct mountain feel and Norwegian touch, with a Yogic style and value-set.

Alexander has been teaching Yoga around the world for over 20 years. In 2002, he became certified by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois from Mysore, India. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) developed the style of Vinyasa Yoga known as Ashtanga. Only 35 people worldwide have obtained the certification as Ashtanga teachers by Pattabhi Jois, Alexander being one of them. 

With a Master’s degree in Sanskrit and Indian religions and spending many years studying in India, he regularly writes about Yoga and many of his articles have been published in leading, international journals about Yoga. He translated the Yoga Sutras and Bhagavad Gita to Norwegian.

Running the foundation “Yoga for Life”, he has launched and continues running projects, such as “Gangster Yoga” and “Back in the ring”, helping people who have “fallen out” of society and giving them the opportunity to build themselves up again, through a solid Yoga practice, heightened sense of responsibility and social work.
