Blidö Retreats

About YogaShala Blidö


This cozy and peaceful retreat center is owned by Päivi Seppä who is the mother of Sofia Soori. Together they built a yogashala from scratch out of organic materials. It is located in the forest by their summer house with a 2 minute walk from the ocean. The shala has 13 windows overlooking the beautiful swedish forest and a sauna heater (yes, hot yoga classes available and meditations with fire place).


 Close to the yogashala are two houses with two bedrooms in each for retreat members to stay in. The garden is nice and big and at summer times we grow our own organic vegetables which we serve at the retreat meals too. There is also a possibility bring a tent and camp at the retreat area if you want to stay even closer to nature.




How to reach here from Stockholm?

You can either take bus 676 from Tekniska Högskolan towards Norrtälje and then change to bus 634 to Glyxnäs (endstation). This trip takes over 2 hours.


If you want to drive by car it takes about 1 hour 45 minutes from Stockholm and you can easily take the two ferries over to Yxlan and then Blidö with no cost, they leave every 30 minutes from Furusund.

Adress for Google Maps: Glyxnäs Byväg 77, Norrtälje.


Or you can also take a beautiful ferry ride all the way from Strömkajen in Stockholm city to Glyxnäs Brygga with Waxholmsbolaget. About 3 hours.

Tack och lov har han valt att komma till just oss på YogaShala Blidö denna sommar! Så vi har välkomnat honom och till och med provat hans massage och den är helt underbar!

Vi kommer snart lägga ut tider för massagen. Men ni kan ringa eller maila redan nu för att boka en tid med honom! Jaime är för det mesta ledig, så för tillfället kan han anpassa sig efter er!

"Heaven on Earth 💗"

Kiran Bahra from United Kingdom

What a truely amazing experience! Our teachers Sophia and Hanna were highly skilled and knowledgable in both the yoga practices and tuning into your strengths and weaknesses. I felt so nurtured and guided to break my own boundaries and experience yoga on a different level. I've come away with new friends, shared so much laughter and feel priveledged to have spent this precious time with such beautiful souls in this mesmerising country. I have come away feeling nourished and more at peace within myself and whatever life has in store for me. I have so much gratitude for the seeds you have planted x

"More than just a yoga retreat"

Nadja Färber from Germany

The YogaShala Blidö is more than just a yoga retreat. It is a place of peace and beauty where you can just be yourself. Sofia and Hanna are wonderful, not only as yoga teachers but also as persons with an open ear and open heart for everybody. I'm so lucky I found this retreat and I will always keep this unique experience in my mind. The nature surrounding the YogaShala is also beautiful, and it is absolutely worth the journey from Stockholm.
