AMAZING TEACHERS, GONG BATH & MAGIC MUSIC

We have invited some of the world’s foremost yoga teachers and you will find yin yoga, yoga flow, ashtanga and kundalini yoga on the schedule. We have bhajans and dance, tantric yoga and gong bath. Our nightly gong puja is always very popular, just like the sauna and open stage in the café.

Music is an important part of the festival program. Come and enjoy Ängsbacka’s magical house band and many other musical acts. You are also welcome to bring your own instrument or your voice and be a part of Ängsbacka’s spontaneous “yoga orchestra”

FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

The festival offers a daily Children and Youth program with fun things to do; Games, dance, circus, open air theatre, excursions in the forest, yoga and more. The “kids camp” will be open from 11:00 to 13:00 and 14:30 to18:30.

Our “Children’s Village” is not a kindergarten with trained childcare employees. You take full responsibility for your child during the entire festival. You need to make an agreement with your child about if they are ready to take part in the activities on their own or not. If your child is less than 4 years old, they are too young to join the kids camp by themselves but you are welcome to join activities together with your children.

The area around Ängsbacka is a safe and lovely place for kids to explore. There is a forest full of blueberries and a lake where the older kids like to go for a swim.

There is also plenty of workshop leaders in the adult program that are happy to have young people in their classes as long as they behave in a respectfull way towards the workshop and the other participants. It is important that you always check this with the workshop leader on forehand.

YOGIC FOOD

For you to get the most out of the festival, we offer yogic vegetarian food from passionate chefs who care about your well-being. They will pick the finest veggies for you to enjoy as exciting stews, soups and raw food dishes that make both your body and your taste buds vibrate with pleasure.

The yogic food provides lots of energy, without being too heavy. Vegan alternatives will also be available during mealtimes.

PASSION POWER AND PRESENCE

Take a well deserved break and spend one week dedicated to nourishing your body, mind and spirit. Ängsbacka Yoga festival is like a retreat that you build your self, choosing from different yoga styles and classes to tailor make your own yoga holiday.

This years theme is inviting you to follow your passion, find your power and be present in the moment. Come to the yogafestival to be inspired, to grow, to deepen your knowledge in yoga or to give your practice an extra boost.
