5-12 October 2019
We are totally delighted to have Gösta bringing his unique but incredible style to Yoga Rocks once again. Along with his partner Patrick, who also retreats here, they have three dedicated, homely yoga studios in Amsterdam. The true soul and community they have created there helps envelop our retreat with nurturing and excitable energy. Yoga Rock’s vibe has roots in Svaha’s heartening ideals with Patrick and Gösta heavily influencing Helen’s yoga.
Gösta was busy ransacking New York when Patrick lured him along to his first yoga class with Jivamukti duo, Sharon Gannon and David Life. He swapped his crazy NYC existence for a slightly calmer yet equally exciting life on the mat. Existing at the edge of eccentric – he is enthusiastic, cheerful and wholeheartedly committed to his practice. Inspiring and provocatively humorous Gösta was once voted Yogi of the year in The Netherlands. Classes are fun, challenging and, as we say a lot at Yoga Rocks, anything can happen. This retreat could be your catalyst for any needed positive change.
The retreat will be a mix of active asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy. Gösta has years of experience teaching these yoga essentials to both students and many grateful yoga teachers. There will be chanting under the stars making good use of our harmonium.
Patrick and Gösta’s latest mission is a yoga studio in Suriname pictured above. In the future they will run retreats with rain forest expeditions.
