In exchange we offer a reduced price: 1900 SEK (regular price 3500 SEK). This price includes the organic food and camping space. The amount of volunteers is limited, and it depends on the amount of participants. More signups, then more volunteers needed.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)


Do I need to have experience to participate in this festival ?
NO. You can come as a completely beginner. There will be workshops for all levels. Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced. Everybody welcome.

Do I need to come with a partner to the workshops ?
NO. We work with all the people creating groups with different numbers. Very normal to work in groups of 3. If you have a friend which you really want to work with, well.. even better!

Do I need to pay for the food when I am in the festival ?
NO. The food is included in the price of the ticket. So you just come and enjoy. The food is vegetarian and mostly with organic products (+80%). There will be abundant food because we know that AcroYogis consume more energy than the standard.

I am vegan. Do I need to be worried about my food for the festival ?
NO. The milk & egg products are not mixed with the food. They are presented as side dishes... so you can have your vegan meal :)

I don't speak Swedish... can I enjoy the festival anyway ?
YES. The workshops are going to be leaded by international teachers. The main language will be English. And because of geographical reasons, the second option will be a mix of Swedish/Norwegian/Danish/Finish...

Can I participate with physical limitations ?
Basically, the participation is entirely at your own responsibility. Advanced acrobatics workshops or an intense morning yoga class are only partial aspects of AcroYoga. Equally important are thai yoga massage, therapeutic flying, singing and gathering. These offers may be for the vast majority of people. No one is excluded because of his physical health and can still have a good time in the festival.

Am I going to have free time for JAM ?
YES. Jamming is an essential part of AcroYoga. It is in the schedule free time for jamming every day. Yes, EVERY DAY.

If I stay in tent, can I use the showers ?
There are common showers and toilets for everyone who stay in tent. No extra cost. There is also a sauna to share with you all !

I am quite busy.. can i come for the weekend only ?
YES. We adjust the price depending on the time you can join. Write those details in the "comment box" when you sign up.

All the workshops are programmed to be indoors, so no workshop cancellations. For the "festival life" in the nature we recommend to bring a rain poncho, just in case :)

Nope. No pets allowed in the retreat center. Even if they are part of your family :)
