Her years of dedication to nurturing souls and bodies through yoga have culminated in the enchanting Altromondo Yoga studio in Stockholm.

A Tranquil Retreat by the Sea
Imagine practicing yoga by the tranquil sea at Diani Beach on Kenya's south coast, where the rhythmic waves and soft sands create a serene backdrop for your practice, feeling the sun's warmth on your skin as you flow through asanas. Embracing the serenity of the natural world as the sun rises and sets over the glistening waters, you will be guided by Jennie in yoga sessions that harmonize movement and stillness, inviting balance and inner peace.
Each morning and evening practice will be initiated in silence, inviting you to connect with your inner self and the surrounding beauty in a serene, contemplative atmosphere.
Join Erica in connecting with the ancient plant spirits through rituals and ceremonies that will nourish your soul and ignite your senses. Erica will share her knowledge of the healing properties of gentle, safe herbs and self care rituals for mind, body and soul. We will also be creating our own herbal remedies that you get to bring home with you.
An Ode to Unity and Creation
Together, Jennie and Erica will craft a retreat that seamlessly weaves together yoga sessions, meditation, plant medicine teachings, and shamanic practices. This is your opportunity to experience the harmonious convergence of two worlds, where movement and stillness, tradition and innovation, and mind and spirit converge in perfect balance.
This retreat is not only a culmination of Jennie and Erica's shared wisdom but also a celebration of the collaborative spirit of Altromondo yoga. As you embark on this journey, you will be joining a community that values growth, unity, and well-being.
Secure your spot in this magical retreat, where yoga and ancient wisdom come together in perfect harmony, and where the sea's embrace becomes your sanctuary. Let's embrace the transformative power of unity, healing, and creation together.
Join us in the fall of 2024 for a profound journey that awaits your presence.
