Idöborg 31 July – 7 August 2016

____

Venue
Scandoir is excited to return for another yoga retreat on the Swedish island of Idöborg. Join us for a week of Rocket yoga on your very own magical island in Stockholm archipelago – the perfect escape for mind, body and soul. With expert teaching from Marcus Veda offering twice-daily classes in our studio overlooking the sea and delicious gourmet food with Kimberly Parsons, owner and founder of ‘Retreat’ Café. The retreat also includes a daytrip to Sandhamn, a popular, idyllic nearby island in the Stockholm archipelago as well as guided kayaking and traditional wood-fired sauna.
 

Idöborg is a beautiful island in the Stockholm Archipelago. Handpicked by Scandoir, the privately owned island offers an exclusive piece of Scandinavian serenity. Its yoga studio enjoys the daily spectacle of the morning sun rising over the sea, while a 300-year-old log cabin houses the wood-fired sauna on the island’s shore. Stay active by swimming the coastline or explore one of the 30,000 other islands by kayak. Alternatively, slow down with a bit of sunbathing on the rocks, a walk through the pines, or try your hand at kubb - the Swedish lawn game. For booking enquiry click here

Marcus Veda
Marcus Veda's road to yoga was not a conventional one. Fresh out of Uni, he managed to use his degree in philosophy to justify spending his 20s touring the world as an international DJ, wholeheartedly committing to the hedonistic life… and loving every banging minute of it.
 
It wasn’t until a spur-of-the-moment decision to take up break-dancing on stage one night put an extended stop to all professional jumping around, that he finally took a therapist friend’s advice in trying yoga to get fixed. A need to properly heal the body coincided with a sneaking desire for change in the mind that landed Marcus on the mat…
 
Trying every style of class he could get to on every studio intro-offer in London, he finally landed on dynamic vinyasa and more specifically, The Ashtanga-inspired Rocket system, which satisfied his undying urge to fly. Completing his first 200hrs teacher training with the Yoga People in Goa he went on to further train in advanced progressive ashtanga and Yin Yoga, deepening his appreciation of what yoga can be beyond the asanas that drew him in.
