WANT TO RECOVER YOUR FOCUS? – ORGANIZE A RETREAT!
 

The ability to concentrate is an important asset in the working community, but in today's working life it is lost for many.

 

The ability to concentrate can weaken due to a constant flood of information, constant interruptions, noise and stress. When it is difficult to concentrate, the quality of the work deteriorates, memory and attentiveness slow down, and everyday coping decreases.

At Utula Nature we can organizeprivate retreat or private event for example, for a work group, team and management group work or even a gathering of a group of friends.

 

We can tailor a private event, day event or retreat to suit your needs. An essential part of our nature retreat includes stimulus fasting, so that the mind can rest and the ability to concentrate is revived.

Utula Nature offers, for example, various nature activities as well as Yin yoga, sound travel and meditation classes, or at the retreat we can just focus on relaxing and calming down in the middle of wonderful nature.

A warm welcome to Utula Nature, on the coast of Saimaa!

TENT

The yoga tent is a natural, serene and beautiful space for our group classes on the sandy beach.  From there, the view opens directly to Saimaa, and the sounds of nature become part of the hour's soundscape.

The tent has all the equipment needed for the classes, yoga mats and other aids.

 

We hope that you choose a place that you will keep for the duration of the retreat. This is how we keep the tent clean, when everyone takes care of cleaning their own place after class. Cleaning the yoga mat with a damp towel is done on the last day before departure.

SHARED SPACES

Numerous outdoor spaces surrounded by nature,  picnic tables, hammocks, a sun terrace, a yoga tent and  the main house's terrace and living areas are at your disposal. We encourage customers to spend time in nature as much as possible, because nature calms us naturally.

In the main house, you can use the common dining and living areas, the windows of which offer a 180-degree view of Saimaa. The large window view lets nature in even in rainy weather, and the comfortable sofas and fire in the fireplace will surely make you feel comfortable.

SAUNA AND WASHING FACILITIES

There are three clean bio-toilets for shared use, and you also have an outdoor washing point for morning and evening washing.

Washing takes place in a wood-heated sauna that heats up daily or in a warm outdoor shower that is constantly available to you.

The swimming beach is located near the public outdoor spaces, so please bring a swimsuit if you feel you need it.

NATURE

Utula Nature is located on a 200-meter family-owned natural sand beach at its right end.  The plot is green and the pine trees bordering the shore and the ancient mossy stones covered with blueberry shoots in the center of the retreat are especially lovely. The plot extends to the right from the reeds to the next green cove, from which the lake view opens far to the horizon and the sunset in the evenings. A marked walking route starts from the yard to Huuhanranta, approx. 1 km away, to the 2 km long natural sand beach, which is definitely a walking destination worth seeing. You can also enjoy the surroundings by SUP-boarding, rowing or cycling.
