Yoga Holiday Italy August 2018


Join us in the gorgeous northern Italian mountains for 6 days of yoga, hiking, ayurveda, delicious organic vegetarian food and massages.

We’ll enjoy 2 yoga classes by me & one hike a day led by my husband Daniele.

Practicing yoga during a retreat is something special! You’ll be able to dive much deeper into your practice with all the beauty of nature around you & without the distractions of daily life.

We will practice an energising solar flow in the mornings and a soothing lunar flow in the evenings. My classes are based on Prana Vinyasa and are fluid, creative, following the rhythms of nature & our body. I will always tune into the mood of the day and adjust the classes to what the group needs.

Plus this year a 1 hour massage or 30 minute Body Alignment Session is included in the price! Upon booking, you can choose your preferred option.

All our meals are prepared by Cristina, a wonderful Italian chef with a passion for healthy cooking. The products are all organic, grown in the garden of Pian della Castagna or locally grown in nearby farms. It’s delicious mouth-watering Italian food with a healthy twist.

You can choose to book an optional extra massage or Body Alignment Session if you'd love to enjoy both (as one of them is already included in the price)
