Back to the Roots

Fiskabäck, Österlen

28 June - 2 July, 2023

A warm welcome to this retreat at the wonderful and fantastic farm and retreatplace Fiskabäck, surrounded by magnificent nature in Österlen, Sweden!

At this free movement dance retreat, you are invited to connect with your roots, move in nature, explore and dig deep into your movements.
Throughout this retreat, we will invite you to connect with the natural world around you, to feel the earth beneath your feet, and to move from a place of deep grounding and rootedness. We will also explore your roots, your ancestors and how you can get nourished by nature. There will be time for dancing, sharing, touch, silence, rest and time in nature.

🌱 This retreat is all about freedom – freedom to move, freedom to express, and freedom to be yourself. You are welcome regardless of whether you are new to this movement practice or have danced for a long time. Welcome as you are!

🦋 We dance morning and night. Every day you will be served three meals with vegetarian food. In the afternoons you have free time to spend time as you wish.

💚 At Fiskabäck there is a magical and beautiful dome, where we dance. Here you have a view of the beautiful garden and nature is present as the dome is open on one side. We will also dance in nature with silent disco headphones, one day by the sea and another time near Fiskabäck. (weather permitting)

🍀 In the afternoons, there is free time for you to choose according to your wishes and needs. Every day there is an opportunity to join an excursion to some of the pearls of Österlen. If you want to go on your own adventure, you are of course welcome to do so! Österlen is a lovely place with so much to offer, beautiful nature, wonderful beaches, lots of art, cute villages, lovely cafeès. Here is something for everyone!

☀️ There is always the option of wanting to stay at beautiful Fiskabäck, rest some, perhaps go for a walk, or maybe read a book.

About Maria

Dance is for me an elixir of life! For me, dance is a fantastic way to get in touch with myself and to feel my inner self, my energy and essence. I’ve always loved to dance, but when I found free dance and 5 rhythms, that’s where I found home. This was almost 20 years ago and since then dance has been a big part of my life. Since 8 years ago I have been sharing my own dance: Body & Soul Movement. I am a trained Body Movement Coach and am currently in the 5 rhythms training. I love to share my passion for the dance and!
My dance space is imbued with trust in the wisdom, power and healing of dance and movement.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
