    HI EVERYONE! I HAVE BEEN BEING OFFLINE ON OFF-SEASON AND HAVE NOT BEEN ACTIVE WITH THIS PROFILE AND THUS MY HOST RATE IS VERY POOR; MY APOLOGIES FOR ALL OF YOU WHO HAVEN'T BEEN REPLYED! I AM PLANNING ON TAKING 2 WORKAWAYERS FOR 1-2 WEEK STAY ON SUMMER 2020 JUNE-AUGUST AS SOON US MY SUMMER SCHEDULE/TO-DO LIST IS SET. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

    Come and help me build a nature connection- and yoga retreat venue in beautiful Finnish nature! My home (formally summer house) is on a 100 meter private beach in the most beautiful and authentic Finnish lake- and forest landscape. This place is unique in it's beauty, just 2,5 hour train trip from Helsinki. I will pick you up from train station (45 min. drive).

    Plan is to use my beach house as a yoga- and nature connection retreat venue beginning from summer 2021. Until then, I am doing some development work on the premises to make it ready for the action! That means building stairs/terrace and cleaning to forest around the house, repainting the house, refurninshing the bedrooms to they work as accomodation etc. If you can use the axe (chopping wood) or even better the chain saw, that would be great, but not at all obligatory. I like doing the work myself but I can't do it all by myself, and as my father starts to be old, I don't want to bother him with this project. So, I would be very happy to have you here for 1-3 weeks. I can have 2 (couple or friends) persons at a time, sharing a room.

    This place has been our family's for generations and my siblings (brother and sister) also have their summer houses by the same beach. We spend time here together in the summer time, kids and dogs included, and the atmosphere is relaxed!

    They will experience an authentic Finnish summer cottage life by lake and forest; sauna, swimming, rowing boat, hikes in the forest, sunbathing, relaxing, fishing, barbeque, picking berries/mushrooms (depending on the weeks you come).

    I do yoga and I am shiatsu therapist and interior architect. I study to be a nature connection guide and breathing therapist, so maybe we can have interesting conversations around such topics as well-being, life etc.

    I will pick you up from Imatra train station by car. There is not much going around here near the cottage, other than my siblings families by the same beach. 5 km to Village store of Utula, I have a bike you can use, or you an well walk there is you are up for it. Possible to row to a near island at the lake and camp there for the night, if you like that. Sauna is warmed every night and the beach is perfect for swimming! There are interesting sights to and from Imatra train station, if you are interested...but mostly this experience is for the ones who really appreciate being and unwinding in nature ant the calmness!
