I want to introduce to you one of the highlights of my summer in Finland, a 3-day yoga and wellness festival on the beautiful island of Lonna.
Magnesia - Heartful Island Festival.
This festival is not ordinary. It's programme is filled with wellness workshops, talks, yoga and dance. It brings likeminded people together to enjoy a weekend full of valuable experiences, sharing and learning. Bringing together some of the top instructors and experts - from Finland and abroad, Magnesia truly is an experience you don't want to miss!
What I learned last year in Magnesia is that there is no standards you need to pass to be a part of the community. It doesn't matter if you're a yoga enthusiast or a beginner, what matters is a shared seed of interest in holistic living and health. This is what makes the festival so special, everyone is simply letting their guard down and enjoying the moment.
Here's some of our faves from the programme:
Sauna Sisters Story Sharing workshop by Reetta Ranta
KOKONAINEN wellbeing & beauty-workshop with Weleda by Mariela Sarkima
The Impermanent Flow - A Creative Sequence by Matilda Mannström
Acro Yoga Workshop by Timo Kurvi
The Tao of Dating - The Modern Woman's Guide to Loving and Being Loved by Ali Binazir
We hope to see you there!
