2. - 6. OCTOBER 2019 / GRÖTSKAR - A PRIVATE ISLAND IN THE ARCHIPELAGO OF SWEDEN
“There’s getting away from it all - and then there’s getting away from it ALL.”
A world of its own. This retreat is an unique opportunity to experience the beauty of a private island located in the labyrinths of Stockholms archipelago.
Join us & experience 4 days of Yoga, Living Yolates, Meditation, Cleansing Swims, Kajaking, Saunas, Soulfood and a grounding Cacao Ceremony Evening!
As we will be surrounded by the ocean and water is considered the elixir and source of life, the focus of this retreat will be the element water. Water has so many healing benefits on your physical and mental wellbeing. Water soothes the mind, body & soul, reduces stress, unlocks you creativity & curiosity and gives you an immediate feeling of ease, calmness and flow. Water also serves us as a wonderful reminder of our natural human state: flowing, changing, self-aware, and resilient. It is all-pervading and in constant flux.
Inhale fresh and crisp air, exhale & let go. Enjoy fresh air, warm stone cliffs and cleansing swims.
THIS RETREAT WILL GET YOU OUT OF YOUR DAILY ROUTINE AND WILL LEAVE YOU WITH
A FEELING OF INNER PEACE
In between our movement sessions you can take the kayak out for a tour around the island to experience the archipelago from the sea, take a walk and enjoy the tranquil coves or the open sea or use the sauna to detox and cleanse your body - followed by a refreshing, cold dip into the water.
The lagoon, the rocks and pines form a separate world for this spacious summerhouse built to experience the serenity of its natural setting. Making it the ideal space to re-connect to yourself and nature.

A contemporary masterpiece set upon its own private island, Villa Kymmendö is indulged as the ultimate summer luxury residence in Sweden. Purposely built as a simple yet artistic five-bedroom villa in 2009, the single level design features floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies and terraces that maximise views of the sea and sunsets to the west.
The communal living spaces including the kitchen, dining room and living room, are all spaciously open featuring clean lines and endless views. The main bedrooms are situated at the rear of the property for ultimate privacy.
The lagoon, the rocks and the craggy pines form a separate world for this spacious summerhouse built to experience the serenity of its natural setting. Down by the water’s edge, a short walk from the main house, there’s a modern one-bedroom guesthouse, and a sauna house that sits on one of the island’s piers.
From Stockholm Arlanda (airport) you can take a taxi (approx. 120 €) or rent a car to Dalarö pier, which is a max. 1 h drive. In Dalarö you can park your car for free.
