Be Hyggelig Retreats

Welcome to be hyggelig retreats with adrienne & Anja

Our ‘Be Hyggelig’ retreats are gentle, comforting and soothing. We want to create a feeling of connection, warmth, peace and contentment in a comfortable and cosy atmosphere. This includes cosy spaces with log fires, calming colours and closeness to nature. The practices include yummy yin yoga, restorative yoga, acupressure massage, living in harmony with the seasons, pranayama, yoga nidra, qigong and slow walks in nature. 

Be Hyggelig Retreats was born after the lovely Anja of Anja Yoga & I hosted our Summer Solstice camping & yoga retreat together in June 22. We got along so well personally and professionally that we decided to work together more to offer small group retreats, with a focus on connection, nature and slowing down.

I love to share restorative yin yoga, pranayama and yoga nidra practices and am currently studying aromatherapy to bring this extra bit to our ‘Be Hyggelig’ retreats. In addition to being addicted to yin yoga, Anja offers aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine which includes living in harmony with seasons, acupressure massage, qigong and meridian theory. Anja also offers thai yoga massage during our retreats. Below are a few extra words from us both.

Who are Team Hyggelig?

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, tending my garden or camping with my family, it’s great to take time to switch off and unwind.

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!
