Island Yoga in the middle of Lake Saimaa

Take a boat trip to the Saimaa archipelago and do yoga on the beautiful rocks in one of the thousand of island of Lake Saimaa. In the fall we get to admire the wonderful autumn colors, in the spring we might see an endangered Saimaa ringed seal and in the summer we enjoy the warm rays of the sun. We set off from the scenery of Olavinlinna castle, from the pier of Lossiranta Lodge, to the wonderful yoga rocks located about 15 minutes away. After a moment of yoga, we enjoy picnic lunch in the middle of the peaceful lake nature. On the island, we calm down and gather energy with gentle Vinyasa yoga, or when the body and mind need rest, we choose Yin yoga. The trip is carried out in cooperation with Vision Saimaa.

SUP Yoga

Sup Yoga

Sup Yoga is a great way to get fit, surrounded by the pristine waters of Lake Saimaa. It also serves as an effective way to enhance muscles strength and coordination, as well as balance and agility. Our lesson will depend on the prevailing weather conditions and the experience of the participants in stand up paddling. Please note that everybody must know how to swim to take part in this activity. Why not try out something completely new and different – a challenge for your whole body!
