PROGRAM JUNE 10 - 14, 2020 

We like to keep things personal. Therefore this retreat has a personalized program – and so we limit the number of participant to a maximum of 15 persons.

As a preparation prior to the retreat you will have a private 30 min talk with Virpi. That is to make sure we know where you are at before coming to the retreat.

Firstly the program includes e.g. daily inspiring talks and exercises, deep relaxation and iRest meditation and optional daily yoga sessions with Virpi. In the daily program she guides you using techiques that will bring you into a new level of empowerment and balance in your life. In addition we will be exploring and experiencing refreshing new mindsets and ideas.

Secondly Liisa will give talks on nutrition that will help you towards a better health through small and manageable changes. She will go over the most important issues in nutrition and how to look at it from a functional point of view. 

Thirdly the course program will be adjusted according to the participants needs. So below you will only find a preliminary schedule. In order to gain maximum benefits there is also space in the program to just be, enjoy the surroundings and digest.

Most importantly we will not leave you to manage alone after the retreat either. In addition to the retreat program, post-retreat support will be available. You will have the option to our coaching after the retreat at a special discounted price.
