Playful hula hooping
Movement meditations in nature
New international friendships
We welcome you to connect body and mind
in a unique creative environment, led by
two adventurous and playful women.
Let´s create colorful memories together!
Vilija is your teacher in bodyart and the connection to your inner nature. She is a 2 times world bodypainting champion, and the only artist that does bodyart in the arctic. Her work focuses on human rights and environment, especially in the Arctic region, because it is the most affected by climate change.
Vilija believes that change happens from within, by taking daily choices, doing smaller and bigger actions. In this unique retreat
her goal is to inspire you with a colorful arctic experience.
Fall in love with nature, art, yourself and life even more.
