Winter yoga weekend at Venabu Fjellhotell

Take care of your body and give yourself a break from the everyday. Venabu’s winter yoga weekend creates such a break, along with the opportunity to explore this beautiful winter landscape: on skis or on snowshoes.  

Revitalise: mentally and physically. The weekend’s program is designed as an introduction to yoga. You will discover a range of yoga styles and how each one supports the elements of good health. Our thoughtful yoga teacher, Ann Kristin, adapts her classes to suit the group members and how everyone is feeling at the time.

You will be well looked after: the hotel is comfortable and the food is delicious. We are happy to cater for a variety of diets, vegetarians and vegans are welcome! Please let us know in advance if you have particular dietary requirements.

Venabu is easily accessible from Oslo, making a weekend visit easy, for more information visit our travel page.

Join us for a cosy winter weekend of health and relaxation. Alternatively, you could add this yoga weekend on at the end of our Classic Cross Country Skiing Holiday to make a complete holiday: for body and mind.

Ann Kristin studied sport and physical education in Oslo. She has taught these subjects in high school for about 10 years. She has also taught spinning, strength training, boxing and yoga.



Meet Ann Kristin:

I found yoga at the turn of 2019-2020 with Nøsen Yoga. There, for the first time, I experienced a practice that was not about achievement but rather generosity and breath: to explore the body and accept everything that I find on and off the mat. This was my turning point towards a life with yoga.

What I wish to convey is that yoga can offer you a room to find your breath and presence in your own body. Yoga is more than asanas (postures) on the mat, yoga is a lifestyle. Welcome to the mat for a break from an hectic day to day life. Namaste!

Ann Kristin teaches in English and Norwegian.
