About The Event

Midsummer in the North invites us to celebrate the peak of light and abundance of life – as well as the beginning of a new cycle. Midsummer marks the transition from an extrovert, active and achieving period towards a more introspective, healing, and nourishing period.

Femininity represents the creative force and the full cycle of life. Femininity is carried out in birth, growing, blossoming, maturing and dying. Midsummer is full of this creative force and the connection of all living,

Femininity, as the energy that balances the masculine sun energy, is also retreating, recovering and re-connecting with the inner world. Midsummer is the beginning of shortening days, gently bringing us towards a growing connection with our inner, feminine world.

The essence of Femininity – a Midsummer Retreat offers you a profound break from your everyday tasks, patterns and thoughts. During the retreat you will plunge into deeply relaxing and restorative yoga, free yourself in creative movement, ground yourself in and nature and soothe yourself in the soft warmth of the sauna. The retreat will also give you space and time for yourself, for peace and rest.

You will be guided through the retreat by

Tinja de la Chapelle. Tinja has a long experience of traditional Shakta yoga. She has studied to yoga-teacher at the Shakta-yoga school in Helsinki and at their ashram Shri Kali Ashram. Tinja is leading yoga groups in Helsinki, Porvoo and Sipoo. Beside her yoga studies Tinja educates herself in holistic wellbeing with focus on traditional Finnish herbal medicine, healing methods and traditional philosophy. She has a keen interest in the world of feminine wisdom, through the retreat she hopes to learn and share knowledge with the participants.

You will have your own space in a private or shared room. Either in the main house or in one of the cozy barns in the garden. With shared bathrooms. Our guests have full access to the whole big property with its freshwater pond, flower garden, large terraces, fields, and woods. We will serve you tasty, ecological and locally grown vegetarian food.

The retreat begins on Thursday 20.7 at 17 pm with welcome dinner and ends on Sunday 23.6 after morning yoga and lunch. The program contains morning and afternoon yoga-classes, three meals per day, forest-bathing, ayurvedic foot-massage, sauna, making our own body-oil from midsummer flowers. And free time to enjoy just being together – or alone. A detailed program will be mailed to the participants.
