Summary

Petta reddast, is an Icelandic phrase that embodies embracing the moment and looking forward with certainty that all will work out in the end. This is the perfect theme for our retreat: trust that all will be okay in the end and embrace the moment! We open-heartedly invite you to join us as we Explore, Restore and Find Harmony in the Land of Fire and Ice.

Iceland has been a bucket list item for years for the two of us, and we know there are many other people who have also dreamt of visiting this truly awe-inspiring country! Northern Lights, outdoor adventure, natural wonders, breathtaking scenery, and soul searching are all coming together for the trip of a lifetime. We will immerse ourselves body, mind, and spirit in this magical land as we practice, meditate, and explore all the beauty Iceland has to offer. So much is included in this all-inclusive retreat, but there are also many options to add on and customize as you wish. We are excited to have this opportunity to offer this unforgettable experience to our yoga community. Join us for an unforgettable week exploring Iceland, creating memories, and transforming ourselves.

Catie and Christine lead yoga in many styles. Catie’s background is power vinyasa, although with almost two decades of yoga teaching and lifelong learning there are many modalities incorporated into each class. Christine’s yoga life started as a children’s yoga educator, but over the past few years has taken a trauma-sensitive approach for both adults and children – especially over the last year of living life during a pandemic. Although our individual yoga journeys have been different, our paths have led us to the same place: Yoga is a lifestyle that everyone could and should benefit from.

We are both inspired by yogis who share

CATHLEEN NICHOLS (CATIE)
Cathleen Nichols (Catie) works with you to live your best life: healthy, fit, mindful, & joyful!

I found yoga after my son was born and I was looking to regain strength, flexibility, balance, and health. I learned to accept and embrace myself with newfound self-awareness and self-confidence. I began looking forward to the excitement and possibilities that each day presented to me. That was just the beginning!

I have been listening to clients for more than ten years in the health and wellness industry. While most clients have similar goals, they all have unique stories and my approach is always tailored to meet the needs of each individual. Whether we work together in the studio, online, or overseas, I start by getting to know you. Once I have heard your story, we can plan how to best reach your goals and make your best life become your reality. This often includes a combination of mindful practices, movement, and exercise, health, and wellness techniques. You will notice that after our very first session these tools will be at your fingertips for stress reduction, calm creation, and a greater sense of purpose in daily life.
