Asgaard Yoga Retreats
Esoteric Integral Yoga & Holistic Wellness
Welcome to Asgaard Yoga Retreats!
Asgaard Yoga Retreats are for those who wish to discover the first steps in Esoteric Integral Yoga in a relaxed and regenerating environment – combining fascinating lectures, yoga practice, inner reflection and holistic well-being.
The retreats are designed both for beginners as well as for those who have been practicing some forms of yoga and wish to discover a deeper approach to yoga as a tool for inner transformation and increased quality of life.
The retreats are kept in a charming countryside setting, in a cozy atmosphere of togetherness, in small groups of 5-10 participants.
Holistic Wellness & Detox
As yoga is a holistic science, the retreats are kept at a charming holistic venue providing plenty of opportunities to be in touch with nature and find a sense of inner harmony. During the retreat we will also have time to enjoy to relax and regenerate using natural methods
All participants will have a 45 min massage to remove stress out of the body, relax and enjoy.
In case you are new to yoga, and discover some stiffness in the body during the yoga sessions, the massage can also help you to soften up your body more.
TRIPS IN NATURE
During the retreat we will go together on a walk along breathtaking and stunning Stevns Klint, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most beautiful nature sites in Denmark.
You will also have a program-free afternoon in which you can go on a trip on your own, exploring the beautiful area and the nearby beaches and forests. There are free bikes to borrow at the location.
The retreat includes a trip to the nearby Paradise Retreat Center to take some time to relax & regenerate with a hot tub session in the garden, allowing the hot water to loosen up our muscles and calm our minds.
We will enjoy wonderful vegan food, made with love by Asgaard’s own chef. The food enchants both our taste buds and overall well-being. Lots of wonderful seasonal veggies play a central role in the daily menu.
The menu will be vegan, gluten free and we opt out on alcohol and coffee, starting instead the day with lemon water to purify and tone the organism.

Holistic Health & Well-Being
Our retreats are held in Asgaard Hus, which is located idyllic in the outskirts of the charming old village of St. Torøje, located among wide fields in the fantastic Stevn landscape.
In Norse mythology, Asgaard is the kingdom of the gods, and Asgaard House’s vision is to create heaven on earth for all those who come to visit.
We will enjoy wonderful vegan food, made with love by Asgaard’s own chef. The food spoils both the taste buds and the physical well-being. Lots of wonderful seasonal veggies play the central role in the daily menu.
Asgaard House offers 7 charming and unique rooms, tastefully decorated in Nordic design with a warm touch of bohemian style. Each room is named after Norse mythology.
You have the option of staying in a single room, shared double room or alone in a double room.
All rooms have beautifully decorated shared bathrooms.
The breathtaking Stevns field landscape surrounds Asgaard Hus, and Vemmetofte beach, forest and monastery garden are only a few kilometers away – easily visited both on foot, with a run or by bike. We will have bicycles to borrow on-site.
During the retreat, we go on a scenic hike along the Trampesti along Stevns Klint (part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site) and visit Boesdal Lighthouse.
