Escape to Arctic Adventures lodge for an intimate weekend retreat at a pristine Alaskan lodge. Together we gather for a weekend to celebrate the endless sun light. Disconnect from your day to day to reconnect to yourself. A mid-summer check in to make sure you arrive to fall balanced and free of burn out from our hectic summer schedules. If we don't take some time to recalibrate seasonally we run the risk of having little imbalances manifest as symptoms in the physical body or mind. Be prepared to receive information from yoga and Ayurveda's ancient healing wisdom and learn how to integrate lessons from the weekend into our modern Alaskan lives to help you find greater vitality and balance. We will spend the weekend with hands on learning about about the summer season and how to stay balanced including what we eat and our daily habits of living.  

Register soon there are only eight spots for this retreat to keep things more intimate. Two nights and three days of yoga, meditation, nature walks, paddle boarding, discussions on Ayurveda and wellness, fine dining, and luxury accommodations, massage, one on one strategy sessions, rest relaxation, and fun.
