Iceland | Fire + Ice
About This Event
Join Amara Risa, Mallory Littell, Drishti Videography and the Live Alive community for an adventure so beautiful it will take your breath away, and that’s what the yoga is for!
Iceland, known as the land of fire and ice, is the perfect environment for you to get reconnected to all aspects of yourself. We will begin our adventure in the Blue Lagoon, and end in Hvollsvöllur with hiking, hot spring, geysers and volcanos. Each day we will practice yoga, nourish ourselves with delicious meals, and have the opportunity to connect and share over what you are discovering.
We will be spending as much time as possible outdoors, hiking to hot springs, trekking through mossy fields, walking black sand beaches, boating through lagoons, visiting Icelandic horses, and climbing glaciers. Nothing we will do is mandatory, yet it is said that everything in Iceland is irresistible.
This is adventure is intended to have you experience the richness of being alive. If you are ready to feel fully awake, fully alive, and fully supported, join us.
