Welcome dear you. Welcome to an immersive retreat experience where we learn, explore and unravel our relationship with Rest through yoga nidra, movement, inquiry and ceremony. Our home for our 4 days together is Nøsen Fjellhotell, in the awe-inspiring Norwegian mountains.

In our time together we will explore this feeling of wholeness through various healing modalities that we have studied, explored and shared in our teachings with various groups and individuals.

Come and celebrate the shift of seasons from spring to summer together, in a beautiful community of fellow resting people. Every day includes rest, movement, reflection and integration, and Rachel and Claudia are here to hold space for your personal journey.

What would it feel like to start the new year feeling held and supported?

We believe focussing on nourishing and restful practices where we turn inwards and tend to our needs is powerful. Instead of rushing to start the new year, slowing down and giving yourself space to receive rest will open you up to new life and possibilities. 

We are Rachel and Claudia, the creators of Norway’s most in-depth yoga nidra and deep rest teacher training, and we are so excited to come together to hold space and support you on your journey towards becoming The Rested You. 

Through accessible yet powerful practices we’ll guide you into deep rest and will create the support for you to start implementing more rest into your life. We’ll explore different ways of supporting your nervous system, and your relationship with rest (and those who came before you), and let you tap into what that rested version of you could look and feel like.

“I can really feel that you and Claudia and the teachers invited come from a «lived through and learned» state. It feels really safe for me!” 

Yoga, Fire & Ice
Events & Retreats

A Concept developed By Hilde Karlsen & Rachel to bring together their favourite modalities for mind, body & spirit. Combining restoring Yoga & deep relaxation, with unique sauna ritual and cold water bathing. This is a one of a kind experience.

Hilde invites you to a full sensory experience in the sauna combined with cold water exposure. The blend of hot and cold awakens your body and mind allowing for a wonderfully refreshing experience. Anyone who enters a sauna will experience increased blood circulation. This happens because the heat makes the heart beat faster and the blood vessels dilate, this helps the blood to flow around the body much more easily. Thanks to the increased heart rate, more of these "feel good" endorphins release into the body helping you to relax and feel happier.

Trained as a Aufguss master & outdoor guide has organised cold water exposure and saunas at Geilo and Ustaoset since 2018. Hilde invites you to aufguss, a unique sauna ritual, including, essentials oils, smoke, herbs, steam and music!
Cold water exposure is done under controlled conditions where safety is always the focus. Cold water therapy is known to increase oxygenated blood flow into ares of the body that need to recover, it is also linked to improved quality of sleep, more focus, and even an improved immune response. Hilde will guide you through your breathing and help you to meet the cold with inner strength. After it is common to feel increased energy and an overall feeling of happiness.

Rachel's unique approach to movement and yoga is loved by many and will leave you feeling awake, energised and more connected to yourself. With a focus on dynamic movement to improve posture and relieve the build up of aches and pain. It also supports the function of the lymph & circulatory system. 

Rachel has had her own studio and yoga classes in Geilo for 5 years and is certified in 500hrs Lyt yoga, is a qualified Yoga Nidra teacher, and has studied emotional anatomy and reiki. her combined knowledge and experience allows you to soften and receive all the benefits of the session. 
During your time with Rachel you will get to experience Yoga Nidra, a somatic guided deep relaxation practice. Although this is a deeply relaxing and restorative practice for mind and body, what is going on within you is dynamically active. Helping the body to access the natural state for recovery to take place. Rachel intentionally combines good movement and deep rest, as a way of accessing our true selves, and giving our bodies the space and conditions for self healing.
