Marika Blossfeldt (Estonia/USA)
July 19 – 25, 2017
Treat yourself to a week of dynamic and blissful Kundalini yoga, meditations and massages, delicious vegetarian food and yogi tea. Relax and rejuvenate in the serenity of Western Estonia. Experience white nights, juniper groves and wooded meadows filled with wildflowers and herbs. Explore beautiful sites as we set out on a day trip to visit local museums, medieval castles, bird sanctuaries, bogs and islands.
Kundalini yoga is based on Yogi Bhajan’s teachings. A dynamic form of yoga, combining postures, stretching, movement, meditation, breathing, and chanting, it stimulates the glands, strengthens the nervous system, opens meridians, and balances chakras. The practice of Kundalini yoga brings with it a sense of wellbeing that is immediately tangible. After a yoga session one feels grounded, energized and uplifted. It helps to relax the body and calm the mind, increasing our capacity for concentration, creativity and intuition. Ultimately, it brings us to a deeper understanding of our potentials and ourselves and allows for a harmonious merging of body, mind and soul with the universal energy surrounding us.
The retreat includes
Sadhana, 2 yoga classes per day, evening meditations
1 outing to beautiful natural sites in Western Estonia
Walking, swimming and bike-riding
3 vegetarian meals per day and yogi tea

Oh yes, Kundalini Yoga can be challenging, but it is also so much fun! Especially with the instructions given by Marika! Her friendly, charismatic voice guides you through the exercises, explains, encourages and helps to relax. It’s a great experience and combined with soothing massages, delicious healthy food and a nice excursion it was a bliss, I will never forget! Marion
I loved Polli Talu and its setting and felt it was a perfect getaway that allowed us to focus on body, mind and spirit. I liked the daily schedule but also the fact that we had free time each morning and afternoon to read, write, sleep, have a massage, walk, whatever. The mix of a schedule with definite times for meals, yoga, meditation with the free time was perfect and wonderful. The daily breath walks were amazing. After the retreat, I felt totally refreshed and more relaxed. Christina
We enjoyed the week-long retreat tremendously. The yoga program was very diverse and well-rounded, alternating between strenuous and deeply relaxing exercises. We also enjoyed the outing very much, a chance to get to know some of the stunning natural sites in Estonia. All aspects of the retreat came together as a beautiful whole, including the lovely food. Polli Talu is a special place on planet Earth which emanates peace and tranquility. The hostess is warmhearted and welcoming and made us feel like members of her family immediately. Kerstin and Guido
This yoga retreat is the perfect time out! For one week, I get to exchange my hectic and stress-laden life for a few peaceful days in nature, lots of yoga and time for myself, wonderful food (luckily you can now find most recipes in Marika’s cookbook), interesting encounters and enriching conversations with other retreat participants – and all of this at an incomparably beautiful and magical place! Ever since I went there the first time, I hold Polli Talu in my heart – all year long. Sandra
