Level 2 Teacher Training with John and Stephanie began in Denmark from March 29 to April 4. The training was held on the beautiful island of Samsø at Solglimt house in Tranebjerg, the home and retreat center of Level 2 intern Anette. Teachers attended from across Denmark, from Sweden and from Germany. The beautiful nature setting; cozy and comfortable atmosphere of the retreat; and the wonderful spirit of fun and camaraderie between students and teachers made this a very special week!
The asana room was the perfect size for the training.

Each day included chanting with Stef.
View from the asana room window. Most of the week included blue skies and bright sunshine!
The training group gathered for meals around the table.
An evening trip to the west coast of Samsø was rewarded with an amazing sunset.
An afternoon picnic was followed by an energizing walk through nature.
The group also experienced the Scandinavian tradition of an intensely hot sauna followed by a very brief dip in the harbor, pictured here. The water was just above freezing, but after the sauna the dip was invigorating and felt fantastic. Most made the trip from sauna to harbor and back three or four times.
Ever wonder what the teacher is doing while students are resting? 🙂
