Sicily Yoga Retreat

22-26 September 2023

Take Time For The Self

Restore  •  Rebalance  •   Rejuvenate

We have selected this elegant venue in Sicily, just off the coast of southern Italy, in order to create a beautiful and tranquil yoga experience for you. The purpose of this retreat is to take time to nourish and restore the body and mind from accumulated stress, the result of our busy modern lifestyles. These hectic patterns disconnect us from experiencing our essential nature, inner peace and happiness. This  special place will allow you to channel your energy towards rebalancing and relaxation, a space which helps take you away from your daily commitments and immerses you into a conscious, mindful state, allowing you to feel your balanced self once more.

Each day will be made up of morning vinyasa flow, followed by a freshly prepared brunch, made with locally sourced produce.  After an afternoon of yin yoga and restorative yoga, we will then be ready for our delicious, Sicilian inspired dinner. Fresh seasonal fruit, biscuits, tea, coffee and herbal infusions will be available throughout the retreat, and there will also be a dedicated yoga workshop scheduled during the week.

 

Our retreats are designed to be relaxed and informal, so there will be plenty of free time between classes for you to explore the stunning villa grounds, whether it's a walk through the beautiful orange groves, or simply soaking up the Mediterranean sun by the swimming pool.  The villa has a stunning dining terrace with panoramic views facing the valley, ideal for long lazy chilled out evenings. Situated on a hill, there's spectacular views of the old medieval town of Sicily, and simply savouring these surroundings is meditation in itself. This Sicily retreat is designed to allow you to fully relax with friends or partners, or simply take the time to be by yourself.

What You Can Expect

Yoga

All sessions are suitable for all levels. They are designed in a supportive environment for those who are looking to learn or return to the foundations of yoga postures, alignment, breathing, and technique. It will be a mixture of Ashtanga vinyasa flow, Hatha, and Yin / Restorative. Daily practice will help you to feel grounded, centred and rejuvenated.

Yoga Nidra & Singing Bowl Meditation

Yoga nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation that isn’t found in your average meditation practice. The stages of body scan and breath awareness alone can be practiced to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health. In combination with singing bowl meditation, it takes you to a deeper relaxation on a cellular level.

Pranayama & Meditation

In the medical community, there is a growing appreciation for the positive impact that deep breathing can have on the physiology, both in the mind and the body. Both Pranayama and meditation helps reduce anxiety and depression, lower/stabilise blood pressure, decrease feelings of stress and overwhelm, improve immunity.

Local Sourced, Sicilian Produce

We provide fresh, home-cooked vegetarian food using mostly local produce. Dishes with a leaning towards traditional Sicilian style, will incorporate modern twists to create fresh and exciting flavours. We can accommodate dietary requirements such as gluten-free, vegan etc. Please do let us know in advance.

Connecting To The Self And Nature

There will be plenty of scheduled free time for you to simply indulge in this lush island with its warm, Mediterranean climate. Take time to enjoy the stunning Sicilian scenery, or swim in the open outdoor pool while savouring the views from our hillside location. There are many reported benefits of spending time in nature which helps release stress, improve the immune system, promote sleep and relaxation and spiritually cleanse your aura.
