Endless Waves 2022: retreat in Suomenlinna
Taught by Karoliina Valontaival

Endless Waves is a residential 5Rhythms retreat on the island of Suomenlinna, just off the coast of central Helsinki. Melt, unwind, and ease into the pleasure and restorative power of movement. The nature around us will support us in relaxing and opening our senses: time in nature is scientifically proven to bring down stress levels and boost our soothing parasympathetic nervous system. 

Dance to clear your mind, free your body, and ignite your creativity. Dive into your movement, wave by wave, layer by layer, and allow yourself to be embraced by the dance. We’ll learn how to soften into our stuck places, allowing them to set the pace and teach us how to open. There will be time for silence, movement and rest, sharing and solitude, and magic in motion. Weather permitting, we will also be moving outside, allowing ourselves to be opened and nurtured by the elements.

Suomenlinna is an 18th-century sea fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a bewitching combination of nature, cultural history, and stunning views over the urban Helsinki skyline. You can stay at Hostel Suomenlinna for a residential experience or arrange your own accommodation. Join us for an unforgettable dancing experience!

How to get there: flights to Helsinki airport. Easy transport to the centre from the airport. There is a ferry every 20 minutes to Suomenlinna. The venue is a 25-30 minute walk from the ferry terminal (the hostel is right next to the ferry terminal). See the public transport journey planner here.
