Sattva Yoga is much more then yoga poses, come and have a taste next weekend at Dharma Mountain! Yogateachers Nina Haugen and Ninja Tollefsen will share practices to expand consciousness, increase energy and experience more joy! A weekend retreat filled with Sattva Yoga Journeys, Kriya sessions, meditation and more. In beautiful surroundings with amazing food, people and ENERGY!
We chose the theme Sweet Simplicity for several reasons. One is to make this weekend accessible and enjoyable to all levels and preferences as Sattva Yoga really meets the individual where he or she is at. Another is to allow for the experience that evolution doesnt have to be complicated and that being sincere is not the same as being serious all the time;) We are also aware of the fact that many have busy lives, so feel free to come and just enjoy food, nature and silence if this charms you more than our schedule…
This being our first retreat, we want to keep it simple and make it accessible so that as many as possible will be able to experience Sattva and to get to know us more. Therefore we are only charging 300 NOK on top of food and accommodation and also creating space for other teachers to offer their wisdom, truth and joy through donation based events. If the space doesnt get filled, we will share wisdom and Ninja will definitely make sure there is dancing/movement… So please bring some extra ”hundrelapper” and you are very welcome to contact us if you want to share something.
We will do the retreat in English or Norwegian, depending on who is joining.

What to bring
Sharing what we love!!
In the spirit of sharing what we love, we decided to book Dharma Mountain in November and offer our first Yoga Weekend Retreat. After having had the fantastic opportunity to be with Anand Mehrotra and Sattva Yoga for several teacher trainings, it is time to share both our joy and our wisdom. The expansion, growth and love these practices give access to simply have to be experienced by as many as possible!
We want to create an opportunity for people to consciously come together, enjoy a deep practice while also having the space to relax, take some time out from their everyday life and and enjoy silence, beautiful surroundings and tasty vegetarian food. And Dharma Moutain is a place we really enjoy, so very happy to be able to share that as well.
Our intention for this weekend is coming together to deepen, transcend limiting belief and patterns while simultaneously raising our energy and experiencing joy. Through expanding the capacity to be with what is, one increases the capacity to enjoy life. And we truly believe that life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest, so come and enjoy with us!
«Joy creates energy, energy gravitates towards Joy»
– Anand Mehrotra
We are looking so much forward to spending this beautiful time with you in the mountains. Enjoying our favorite practices and creating a space for everyone to expand and enjoy themselves in a conscious way. And there will of course be great food, beautiful connections and amazing scenery…
*** In Love and light ***
Nina and Ninja
