Iceland, the land of light and dark, lava and snow, water and fire, a perfect yin and yang balance of dynamism and raw beauty

The village of Laugarvatn, where Sagrada Iceland Yoga Retreats are offered, sits on the shore of a stunning lake with the same name. 60 minutes from Reykjavik capital and 90 minutes from Keflavik International Airport. Renting a car is the most convenient way of getting around Iceland and offers you much flexibility and freedom. We highly recommend planning additional days before or after the retreat to explore the many wonders of the country including Iceland's capital Reykjavik. Driving in Iceland is wonderful and scenic everywhere, yet the weather is known to change without much notice, so confident driving skills are advised. Again, we can help arrange for a shuttle service from the airport as well.

Laugarvatn Fontana

Laugarvatn Fontana is a invigorating hot spring where you can enjoy the healing powers of the geothermal water; soak in a natural pool, relax your muscles in the steam rooms, or for the venturesome, take a dip in the refreshing lake. The warm pools and hot pots vary in depth, size, and temperature just like the three traditional steam rooms.

All Meals Included

In the spirit of the historic Heradsskolinn school, the restaurant evoke memories of the old days. The menu draws inspiration from the original school that opened here in 1928. The restaurant has a fantastic view of Laugarvatn lake. While enjoying breakfast, you can watch the sun rise over the serene body of water. The food is devine, with local wild fish, plentiful soups and salads and homemade breads and a delicious waffle stand with decadent dark chocolate to smother on top. We finish every dinner with a delicious homemade cake with fresh cream or local grass-fed ice-cream from a neighboring farm. Enjoy traditional Icelandic cuisine in the dining room or have a coffee or tea in the library.

    Just got back from Sagrada’s Iceland retreat and feeling more relaxed than ever! Had an incredible time exploring such a beautiful country with a great group. Nicole is the BEST - wish I could transport her to Jersey so I could take her class all the time.
