Sunday, August 1, 2021 - Sunday, August 8, 2021

Cost: 290EUR – 840EUR

In August 2021, we will finally return to Kadermo Conscious Living near Hanko, Finland. Isabella has previously taught two summer retreats at Kadermo, but in 2020 we had to take a break due to the Covid19 pandemic. On 1-8 August, 2021, Isabella will teach an Ashtanga yoga retreat open to all levels of practitioners. You may join for the whole week (1-8 Aug), five days (1-6 Aug) or a weekend (6-8 Aug). Welcome!

Kadermo Ashtanga Yoga Retreat

Kadermo Island is situated a couple of hours from Helsinki and is easy to get to by train directly from the airport. The retreat centre offers a unique opportunity to experience yoga in a peaceful, untouched and idyllic setting. There are no shops or cars and hardly any people on the island. The retreat is set in a protected oak forest area where some of the trees are 500 years old.

Kadermo Ashtanga Yoga retreat is the home of senior Ashtanga Yoga teacher Stefan Engström. He was born on the island and founded the retreat centre in 1994. Since then people from all over the world have been coming together to practice yoga and conscious self-development with Stefan and guest teachers.

Weekly programme
The week includes two daily yoga classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. There are two yoga halls available with plenty of room for both asana and quiet practices.All yoga classes during the week are taught by Isabella Nitschke,  authorised (level2) ashtanga yoga teacher by Sharath Jois.

Upon arrival on the Sunday evening we’ll gather for a welcome and introduction session followed by dinner.

In the mornings there’s Mysore style class for all practitioners but depending on the level of participants there may be the opportunity for more guided teaching for beginners. Before morning asana class we practice silence and students may may do their own meditation and breathing practices in the meditation hall.

Afternoon classes are held16.00-18.30. This class gives an opportunity for Isabella to help you deepen your understanding of the practice by looking at asana and breathing technique, yoga philosophy and chanting. Each class will have a different theme depending on the participants’ needs and will include some easy pranayama and relaxation techniques. A light dinner is served at 19.00.

The Facilities

Students are accommodated in various houses on the island. There is a two-storey summer house on a stunning rocky area overlooking the sea 10 mins walk from the yoga shala. Other rooms are at the winter house an old fashioned traditional villa style that was common in the 1920’s.  All toilets are composting and showers are eco-friendly.

We enjoy daily vegetarian lunch and dinner. Herbal teas are available all day. The café is also open straight after morning practice for coffee and smoothies (not included in the price). After lunch you have free time to explore the surroundings, walk, swim, go canoeing, read a great variety of yoga books from the library or enjoy the Finnish sauna.


All reservations and payments are done through Stefan at Kadermo Conscious Living by email Stefan@Kadermo.fi . The number of participants is limited in order to give everyone a personal and special experience of their time on the island. The retreat centre retreats all summer long and there are discount options for those wanting to stay more than one week. For more information and details about the summer programme please visit the Kadermo Conscious Living website. For questions about the yoga classes or your practice please email Isabella.

We look forward to welcoming you this summer!
