Venturing into the Light: An Icelandic Yoga Retreat with Jill and Kristina

About us


Whether we are aware of it or not, we are ever seeking the light. The light of self, of truth, of knowledge.

There are some places in this world that are ideally suited for remembering these deep essential truths about life’s mysteries and the secrets of the soul. Iceland, a pure and powerful temple high up in the north of our globe, is one of those places. By nature’s hand, the entire island is a sacred site potent with wisdom and brimming with ethereal light, even on the darkest night.

Join Jill and Kristina in the majesty of the Land of Fire and Ice as we adventure into the diverse landscape of the north: a truly awesome expanse of wilderness with glacial waterfalls, lava fields, volcanic hot springs, and of course the ever-searched for, mystical Northern Lights. Our days will include yoga, hiking, community service, exploration and plenty of time for reflection and relaxation in one of the most spectacular places on our planet.

Awaken your soul. Journey with us and be reminded that the light around us is but a reflection of the light within.

LEADER
Nearly 30 combined years of teaching experience, more than 18,000 teaching hours and 2,000 hours of training speak volumes to the depth and breadth of knowledge transmitted when Kristina and Jill guide an adventure. Their capacity to hold the sacred space for retreat participants to journey not just to new lands, but to previously uncharted inner landscapes is unparalleled.

A week’s adventure to a foreign land with Kristina and Jill is always a trip of a lifetime, and you will return home from our Icelandic adventure with mind, heart, and soul wide awake and fully alive.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett
