Ängsbacka Yoga Festival


Book and pay until 28 Feb 2018
4400 SEK





– 2017 –





Existing without effort, a life in flow. The new trend in yoga is returning to Patanjali’s words of stirham suham – to practice yoga effortlessly. When we allow ourselves to do so, we let go of tensions, worries and demands, and we find a deep peace and new strength within ourselves.




Returning to Source. To the essence of being. With every breath, we have the possibility to let go of demands and embrace our very core. When doing so, we access an enormous power and an inexhaustible source of life.


A place for stillness and recovery, which, in an ever-faster spinning world, is exactly what we need right now. Pause – take a conscious breath – and just allow yourself to be.

The yoga mat is a place for being with yourself in all that you are – your body, your mind and your resistances. The yoga class offers a moment of presence and acceptance that will bring you more energy and lust for life.

You create your own retreat by choosing the yoga classes that suit you and your level throughout the day.

Nina Snäll

AcroYoga, Family AcroYoga, Kirtan

"With creativity, movement and spirituality as her guiding stars she turns the world upside down and inside out."


Nina moves naturally between traditional yoga, modern free flowing vinyasa and explorative dance yoga. Her center of gravity is deeply rooted in the interconnectedness of acroyoga merging yoga, acrobatics and healing arts into oneness.

With creativity, movement and spirituality as her guiding stars she turns the world upside down and inside out. At an early age books, music and teachers of dance and theatre made a deep impact as they evoke the experience of our body, mind, soul connection in action. Yogic elements were brought into the space of art and improvisation. Deep relaxation, breath awareness and sun salutations were all present. And most of all a culture of acceptance, inclusivity and joy of movement.

Daniel Ryrvik

Heart Dance, Music Concert

Let go and let God!


Up until the year 2000 Daniel tried his best to be a normal kind of guy. Then it all fell apart, he jumped off the cliff and came to Ängsbacka. Since then he has done pretty much everything on offer in the alternative world. It has been a journey through heaven and hell and back again. It has been Rock'n Roll, Bhajans, Heart Dance and men's groups. When you meet Daniel you meet a man of raw honesty, humility and greatness, humor and sincerity and a big compassionate heart.

For the last 15 years Daniel has been uplifting people's hearts in song and dance at countless festivals and events at Ängsbacka, Mundekulla and Solhälla, and in Stockholm, Göteborg and Oslo.

Daniel is loved for the way he captures the moment and makes everybody feel part of the happening, loved for how he makes people laugh and sing and dance in total freedom!

Daniel makes it all come alive!

Mark Chesters

Optimising Movement & Gravity

"Follow your Heart, Life takes care of the Rest"


Mark has been fascinated with how the physical body moves, functions and expresses the consciousness of the Being.
Getting frustrated with Western philosophy in the late 90?s and early 2000?s because of the lack of understanding, especially how emotion has a direct influence over the body, he decided to go learn from different modalities.

This took him to healers in Brazil, Tibetan monks in the highlands of far Eastern China, Ice water training with Wim Hof and many other adventures.

He has managed to integrate all the information he has gathered and use it in the most optimal way possible.

Our bodies are maps of our consciousness and the decisions we have made throughout our lives and the key is to be able to read this consciousness map to allow the fullness of one?s being to flourish.

"Feel the power and relaxation of the Gong, it gives you a deep rest and fills you up with new energy. Relax, Restore, Retreat."


Mattias is an educated Gong Master & MEM Gong-Yoga teacher at Feel The Vibes - Gong, Yoga & Meditation. He came into contact with Yoga in year 2000 and Yoga has since always been a way for him to relax and get calm in body and soul. He experienced the Gong for the first time as a deepening of the Savasana. He was later shown images on how cells and cancer cells are affected by sound (research by Fabien Maman). It was stated that some sounds caused cells to light up energetically and some sounds caused cancer cells to dissolve. This made him to take the decision to begin his sound-journey with offering Gong. The sound & vibration of the Gong affects the mind so that you can end up in a state between sleep and awakeness, which stills the mind. It also helps the body's self-healing ability to solve tension and stress. After a Gong Relaxation, you often feel relaxed and filled with new energy!

For practical reasons we can´t meet needs from other allergies or diets during festivals.
