Hvilepust Glassiglo med utsikt over Oslo i solnedgang

Wellness guide to Oslo


We are always so happy when we see people who close their eyes and look at the sun, who walk while reading a book, who lie in a park and do nothing. In a society that loves speed, productivity and the rush of time, we believe that everyone, and everyone's nervous system, benefits from taking it easy.

We at Lysløypa support a sustainable society, and we believe that sustainability also lies in people being able to carry out their lives and everyday life in a good way. Avoid walking on the wall. Allow yourself to rest.

Here are our best tips from this year's Lysløype that can help you get into all the nooks and crannies of the body - to the breath, down to the toes, out into the capillaries and all the way into the smile.

HVILEPUST

Fall asleep to moonlight, wake up to sunrise? In a glass igloo in the forest. All alone, all alone calm. Without pling plong from computers and trams and rush hour traffic. Only forest, stone, ants, freckles, bonfire and resting heart rate at Hvilepust.

Hvilepust welcomes you to glamping at several locations in the area around Oslo. Some of the igloos can be reached by public transport, even!

The igloos are built with inspiration from Nordic design, and give a good feeling of presence to the surrounding nature. The glass igloos are recyclable and built on poles, so the whole thing has little footprint in the forest. But the visit to Hvilepust can leave a big mark on your soul, give yourself a little more peace, a little more adventure, a little more closeness to the nature around us.

OSLO BADSTUFORENING - department KROLOFTET

The saunas in Oslo are magical places. Perhaps the only place where you can go alone with very little clothing, be as red as a tomato and talk to complete strangers.

The Oslo Badstueforening is a place where the myth that Norwegians are so closed really doesn't come true. People chat, give each other tips on swimming in cold water, and smile just because it's nice to live, hot and sweaty in a stuffy sauna. Oslo Badstueforening is a place for both physical and mental health - a group that makes the city warmer, both physically and figuratively here, that is!

This year's Light Trail offer is at the sauna association's sauna at Kroloftet. Here you can look out over the Alnaelva while you have a sauna. Afterwards, you can take the new friend you made while sweating and visit the Gunpowder Mill. And then you can stroll home.

A little fresher, a little more included, a little richer in life itself. Welcome to the heat!

MINDFULNESS WITH MADS

Mindfulness with Mads is a small meditation studio at St. hanshaugen in Oslo. It's run by, yes, you guessed it – Mads. Mads wants people to come to his studio to learn meditation, and practice meditation. It is a place where - watch now - NOTHING is to be performed. No one expects anything from you. Nothing needs to be fixed. You can just breathe a little and feel how great it is to be a human being on a planet spinning around in outer space. Maybe you can feel yourself feeling lucky. Or maybe you just think that your calf itches. Mads offers both beginner and advanced course in mindfulness, and we're excited that there is a place in the city which is the opposite of screen use, time pressure, appearance pressure and whatever else feeling that stresses you out.

 

Welcome.

Just as you are.

And hey, the old cliché exists because it's true; be the change you want to be look in the world. One breath at a time.

FLOATING OSLO

Okay. Here's how you do it: You go into Floating Oslo, meet an incredibly nice guy from Scotland, tells you that you have come to float, and is taken into the room where it all happens. In here you meet a kind of spaceship-like egg with super-salty water. Up there bald u!

There you float like a little bob, and after the flask has closed around you, the music has died down and the lights have gone out, you are completely in your own world. Just you. And you can stay here for almost an hour! Thoughts flow, you flow, the world is far away and very close at the same time.

Research shows that floating tanks can provide better sleep, that it helps the muscles to relax, and that anxiety and worries can remove a little from your immediate consciousness. The There are also rumors that parents of young children can make huge gains from an hour where NO ONE can disturb you. Or just you who are tired. Or you who have had a lot able to think about. Or you who just want to relax and enjoy the weightlessness. Think how lucky we are to have people in Oslo who have a tank available, just for you! Good flow. It is allowed to fall asleep.

Kvinne gir ansikstbehandling hos Face Lift

NATURAL FACE LIFT

Okay! Many of us apply face creams both morning and night. The global The cosmetics industry is a billion-dollar industry. Many of us also do yoga, we stretch and stretches the body (very good), but is there a thought to also do one training effort for the face? Or give your face a massage? Well, Agata thought so Foryszewska when she took her yoga teacher training where facial yoga was part of the teaching. She realized that she knew a lot about the anatomy of the body, but all the muscles in the face were an unknown landscape. She certified herself in Kobido - a traditional Japanese language facial massage that has been practiced for centuries. It is known for its relaxing and revitalizing effect on the skin and facial muscles.

Kobido is popular in Asia but is still relatively unknown in Norway. We are happy to do that with, because when Lysløypa's editor was lying on Agata's bench and was punched in the face for the first time in her life, she thanked her Japanese ancestors.

Kvinne på en yogamatte gjør yoga

YOGA WITH CHRISTINA AT FACTORY TØYEN

When yoga came to Norway, fronted by Hollywood stars and alternative souls, it was many who thought this was just another hippie thing that would quickly disappear. It was seen as something mystical, with incense, candles and buzzing mantras. And yes, you will be greeted by both candles and a light touch of incense or essential oils when you join Christina's classes, but you will quickly be reassured that these classes are for everyone! Also for those of you who are super stressed, have zero inner peace or is stiff as a yoga block. Bring what you have!

Turn your nose towards the old factory building on Tøyen, you will go up to the fourth floor, you will enter a room that looks like an office, but go to the right and into a yoga room of the rare ones: wooden floors, skylights and dimmed lighting. After class, all yogis can work for free in the open office landscape (the one you saw on your way in) for the rest of the day. Good yogas and jobbings!
