We went to Hognas parents beach house. We swam in the ice cold water, meditated in a perfectly serene atmosphere, feeling the gentle breeze and the soothing sound of the waves making it so much easier to just breathe and relax.

Then we had some really tasty food cooked by Ornulf, the official cook from stavenger and then we put on music, joked around and basically did nothing. It was completely opposite of what the sunday (part2 in the next post) had in store for us. All in all it was a nice warm up for the most thrilling weekend I have ever had in my life.

Here is the stavenegr YES!+ team.

From left to right. Hogna hide. He is a part1 and a yes!+ teacher. He is the cool dude. Perfectly calm and balanced. A guy who is much needed to infuse a kind of sense and sensibility into the atmosphere when things get too chaotic without much reason.

In the center is Andreas birkeland (Senior Yogi). He holds the record for the fastest YES!+ teacher in the world. He did his yes!+ course in January and within 5 months he is a teacher! He is commitment and dedication personified, absolutely fit and flexible. He gets up at obscene hours in the morning does Sadhna and then eats health food like spirulina, raw broccoli etc etc. You can ask him about health food and go to sleep. Even after you get up you will find him talking about something that increases prana, cleanes shit form your intestines, purifies blood and is good for your kidneys and lungs. The more the number of benefits the horrible it tastes.

Thats Ornulf. He is funny, charming and can really lighten up the whole atmosphere by his light presence. His food is Yummy and he is also going to be our official cook for the advance course with GURUJI in Scandinavia. He is the happy man from stavanger Yes!+.

Thats Siri. She is a dancer and has graciously offered her house for us to stay. She participates in everything 100% and she belongs to the category of "work more and talk less".

That is Khonia. She is an angel. She too is on the fast track and a soon to be teacher. She plays the Viola, sings well and is an extremely sweet person. She has an amazing way to express. She speaks with her eyes.

That is Alexander. He is quiet, very quiet. Even though he is a bit new to Art of living he delivers results that ultimately matters most. He is the guy who does not say much but gets the butts on the seat!

Before I post the PART 2 of the weekend I would like you to go to Google images and search for kjeragbolten and may be also see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYmKbgbVXQg
