ISHTA-joogaopettajat järjestävät retriittejä ympäri maailmaa. Tältä sivuilta näet tulevat retriitit ISHTA-opettajien kanssa.



February 8-15, 2020, Bali, Indonesia

led by Aino Siren & Peter Ferko

with guest lecture by Wendy Newton

Blue Karma Nestling Escape lies high in the hillside just outside Ubud, surrounded by rice fields and rainforest climbs. Some say this boutique resort is an oasis nestled within the space where heaven and earth blissfully meet. It is the perfect place to escape from everyday life to find peace, relaxation, and balance. The grounds boast a stunning infinity pool, gorgeous pagoda, and “Karma Yoga” gazebo surrounded by lush greenery and views of the tropical jungle.

Yoga means union, therefore the practice of yoga is bringing our mind, body and spirit into harmony. During this retreat you will do just that by immersing yourself in the true teachings of yoga; asana, pranayama, kriya, and meditation. In addition to Aino’s signature flow & yin classes, you will get to experience Yogiraj Peter’s lighthearted and inspiring asanas and meditations. As a special treat, Yogiraj Wendy will share her embodied knowledge on the Yoga Sutras through a tantric lens.

The week will be spent in connection with nature, exploring the holy temples close by, and learning how to just be. Come away with us to experience the true definition of luxury, and to discover the secrets of the intoxicating town of Ubud, the beating heart of Bali!

Winter Yoga Retreat in St. Thomas,
U.S. Virgin Islands!
February 21-28th 2019
Aino Siren

st thomas bohemian

I am incredibly excited to host a Yoga Retreat in a very special Villa in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands this coming winter, and I would love for you to join me! It is very clear to me that it was divine guidance that brought me to lead a retreat here. I found out what an incredible bohemian villa the owner June has created with character that you can not replicate. The place in its self also has a very profound healing capacity; a Shaman that June has worked with closely from the Amazon in Ecuador once declared that they are built on a healing vortex. When she told me that, I knew this was the reason I got guidance to host a retreat here! We are all in need of healing at times, individually and collectively, and I believe as we keep our own energy vibrant and healthy it then creates a ripple effect around us. This place is called Spirit on the Water, and I can’t wait to go there! Hopefully with you! 

This retreat is held in a Private Villa; we have the place to ourselves for the week! 4 Rooms available!

st thomas beach
St. Thomas is one of 3 U.S. Virgin Islands in the territory. All are accessible without a passport if you are a U.S. Citizen. St. John is a quick 15-minute ferry ride away and is home to an expansive national park.  There are also a handful of British Virgin Islands that are accessible via ferry out of Redhook, which is 15 minutes from the retreat center.   
The Virgin Islands have an average year-round temperature range that maintains itself in the 80’s. The aqua blue Caribbean Sea averages a temperature of 80 degrees as well.
St. Thomas is home to the World-famous Magen’s Bay, a mile-long white sandy beach rated in the top 10 beaches across the Globe. Magen’s Bay is only 7 minutes from Spirit on the Water.

Things to do:

  • Hanging out in sun and shade on the beautiful famous beach (7 min away), kayaking and paddle boarding. 
  • Staying at a nearby secret pocket beach.
  • Swimming, snorkeling and boating.
  • A TBD day trip
  • Relax and do NOTHING (my favorite 🙂
  • And, of course, lots and lots of Yoga!

The enchanting magic about Spirit on the Water, sitting 100 feet above the Caribbean, is how seamlessly it blends into the ocean below. The infinity edge pool becomes one with the waves that extend to the jagged edges of the British Virgin Islands in the far distance. Along the way, are small islands, scattered everywhere, adding breathtaking drama to the ocean’s architecture. You can dream away in the comfortable tropical heat under the shade of palm trees growing up through the deck.

Spirit on the Water offers you peace and tranquility, spectacular uninterrupted views down island to St. John and the British Virgin Islands, unequaled sunrises and star-filled night skies.

Aino Siren & Mikaela Soldan


Aino ja Mikaela kutsuvat sinut maagiselle juhannusta edeltävälle retriitille Kadermon saarella Hangon lähettyvillä. 
Jokaisena päivänä tehdään energisöivä aamuharjoitus sekä meditaatio, ja iltapäivisin yin & jooga nidra yhdistelmä. Tämän viikon tarkoitus on hiljentää mieltä ja nauttia Kadermon saaren ympäristöstä, saunoen, uiden, tutustuen uusiin ihmisiin, ja syöden terveellisiä ruokia. Retriitin teema on valo. Joogassa ohjataan huomion mukana valoa meidän tiedostamattoman tajunnan kaavoihin jotta voimme tuoda itseämme tasapainoon. Tällä valolla voimme valaista nämä samskarat, jotka aiheuttavat hämmennystä ja tyytymättömyyden tunnetta.

-8-10 Jooga & Meditaatio

-10 Gourmet-brunssi
