Medical Yoga Retreat

Welcome to peaceful days of yoga, meditation and good experiences in wonderful Egypt!

Join us on a journey to inner peace, more energy and well-being! We do medical yoga daily in beautiful surroundings both in the desert and by the sea. There we will fill up with good experiences, wonderful togetherness, silence, tranquility and well-being for body, mind and soul!

Take a break from everyday routines, to turn the focus inwards and find your own rhythm and flow. Going on a retreat is something more than a holiday. A retreat is arranged so that you can have more time for yourself, practice yoga, meditation, rest, silence, good food and experience supportive community. In the care you show yourself, you will have the opportunity to charge your batteries, fill up with good experiences and learn simple, good techniques that you take home with you for everyday life.


There will be daily morning yoga with a view of the sea, as well as extra yoga and meditation sessions most days. If the sea holds the right temperature, we will also do yoga in water, which is a fantastic experience. Friday is the full moon, and we invite you to a full moon meditation in the moonlight on the beach.

Certification in Medical Yoga Sleep

In addition to the yoga, we will offer teaching with certification in Medical Yoga for Sleep. This is optional to participate in. The teaching intertwines knowledge from both recent physiology and yogic knowledge, and will be a mixture of theory and practical exercises. With a holistic and practical approach to health and well-being, we want to contribute to increased awareness of the body and health for a good quality of life, even long after the retreat is over! You can also benefit from this certification if you work with people, where it can act as a good guide to strengthen the quality of sleep in people who struggle with sleep.

Who can participate?

This yoga journey is open to those who have never done yoga before and those who have experience with yoga. We want to give you the experience of how Medical Yoga affects you on a deep level when you have the opportunity to practice yoga, meditation and breathing techniques several times a day in beautiful surroundings. Here you can enjoy vegetarian food, prepared with deep knowledge and love, relax by the sea and enjoy quiet days in beautiful surroundings.

What is Medical Yoga?

Medical Yoga is a calm and simple form of yoga that can suit the vast majority of people. It is a form of yoga based on the old yogic traditions, intertwined with newer knowledge. Breathing, calm movements, attention training, meditation and deep rest are interwoven into comprehensive and effective yoga programs.

What do we do at the retreat?

During the week you will have the opportunity to participate in yoga by the beach where we do yoga in the sunrise and full moon meditation by the sea. There will also be a day of boat trips (included in the price). All activities and gatherings are of course voluntary. In your spare time, it is possible to relax by the beach or retreat to one of the many beautiful places around the retreat.


During the week, you get to practice living a little more slowly, being mindfully present in your own body, being in silence, giving your body time to find balance, getting to know your energy, and awakening your flow and power. You will experience the power found in living a little more calmly, the value of sensing and, not least, you will experience how easy it can be to charge the batteries!
