Yogaflow and deep relaxation

Slow flow with deep relaxation such as yoga nidra or gong in the end.


We practice basic asana, pranayama, meditation, relaxation in a respectful bhakti athmosphere.

Beginners are welcome to join as well as seasoned practisioners that enjoy going deeper into simplicity as we flow.


Welcome for our special gongbaths! We have 6 gongs in the center and they are playd intuitively by an experienced gong player and teacher, Arnbjorg.

The whole body enjoys the vibration of the gongs, every cell is rejuvenated and the mind comes to a stillpoint.

This is TRUTH + LOVE.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga as taught by Judith Laseter is once a week at Omur as a workshop. Enjoy a relaxing, still and rejuvenating class where your body is adjusted and supported in each pose with props.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a quiet slow journey through 4-6 asanas in a class.


The aim is to stretch deeply and move the deeper layers of the fascia for flexibility and healthy range of movement.


Every asana is a spiritual journey assisted by breath and surrender. It teaches patience and how to let go.


Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is deeply relaxing yogic deep sleep that renews your energy. 


It is grounding, restful and peaceful. Guided in Icelandic so it could be quite the experience for you. Go to sleep viking style.


Arnbjörg Kristín Konráðsdóttir

Arnbjorg is a yogini and meditator for the past 10 years or so and enjoys the ever unfolding path of yoga. She teaches and facilitates gong workshops as well as helping people to own their gongs on the island after giving careful contemplative advice in regards of receiving the vibration into ones own life.


She teaches slow vinyasa flow, restorative yogaflow, meditation, yoga nidra and gives gongbaths.
