Be Hyggelig Retreats with Anja & Adrienne


Camping & Yoga Retreat with Anja Yoga

Welcome  to Be Hyggelig

These retreats are all about gentle, comforting and soothing things- all things hyggelig. A feeling of connection, warmth, peace and contentment in a comfortable and cosy atmosphere. So expect a slow pace, cosy fires, mugs of warming drinks, nurturing yin and restorative yoga, acupressure massage, pranayama, yoga nidra, qigong and slow walks in nature… all weaved together with joyful connection.
This venture started in June 2022 between me, Anja and my friend Adrienne when we hosted a joint retreat at Camp Plas in Mid Wales. Over a glass (or two) of wine one evening we both agreed that we want to continue our journey together… we are so excited to start offering retreats in various locations. Our vision is to offer retreats to smaller groups to allow a true connection, beautiful cosy spaces with a relaxing energy. Space is very important to us and each place has been hand picked by us.

Team Hyggelig

This is a joint venture between me, Anja and my friend and yoga teacher Adrienne. Adrienne shares beautiful yin yoga, pranayama and yoga nidra practices and is currently studying aromatherapy to bring this extra bit to our ‘Be Hyggelig’ retreats. In addition to being addicted to yin yoga, I offer aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine which includes living in harmony with seasons, acupressure massage, qigong and meridian theory. I also offer thai yoga massage during our retreats. Below are a few extra words from us both.

A message from Anja:

I’m Anja, yoga & mindfulness teacher based in Wales. I love nothing more than being in nature and walking in the beautiful surroundings of my home valleys of Mid Wales and yin yoga. I offer a safe space for your yoga practice, and a nurturing guidance to support your health and wellbeing. Yoga is for every body and every soul – even though I am trained in various styles of yoga, yin is my thing and what really lights me up!

I also want you to have some fun on the mat – not only as a result of my bad jokes but also during your exploration on the mat. A little playful light-heartedness is oh so important for us adults.

I am passionate about seasonal wellbeing in and living in harmony with the cycles of nature. The most important aspect of my teaching is that you arrive on your mat just as  you are, there is no pressure on doing poses and you choose what feels good in your body on the given day. Everything is truly optional. As I say often to my students: I am here to guide you but you are in your body!



A message from Adrienne:

Hi, I’m Adrienne, I’m based in Staffordshire and I teach Hatha yoga, Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra. My teaching philosophy is that yoga is for every body and my classes are lighthearted, welcoming and friendly. Creaky bones and wobbly legs are all welcome!

I hope to provide a warm and welcoming environment in which you have space to explore and nurture your whole self, through movement, breath and meditation, in order to discover your own inner beauty. My aim is to make people feel good in their own skin, to be confident in their abilities and to enjoy being part of a community.

When I’m not on my Yoga mat, I love to get out into nature. Whether walking my dogs, or camping with my family, it’s great to take time to switch off and unwind. I am also often found in the kitchen, I cook to relax and allow my mind to slow down (and the kitchen is where the cake is kept😋).
