ITALY YOGA RETREAT 2024

 


Yoga Retreats on the Sorrento Coast, Italy

In addition to Yoga, one of my other passions is Italy and I run regular, week-long Yoga retreats in southern Italy. I lived and studied in Italy when I was at university and have always had a close affinity with the country and its people.

My goal is to offer a unique Yoga experience with a daily practice in beautiful, natural surroundings. However, I also want to give my guests time to relax, explore the local area, enjoy the delicious local cuisine and meet like-minded people.

I chose to run the Yoga retreats in Sant’Agnello because it is a small, peaceful Italian town located on the Sorrento Coast. The retreat hotel overlooks the Bay of Naples with spectacular views to Capri and Vesuvius.  But it is not just the breathtaking views that make this hotel special - it is exceptional because of the genuine hospitality its staff offer to each guest.

There are two levels of accommodation on offer - seaview rooms within the villa itself or simple retreat rooms situated in the hotel's peaceful botanical gardens. These are air-conditioned, clean and quiet and provide the perfect environment for reflection, meditation and mindfulness.  

On a coastline that is notoriously expensive and which can get extremely overcrowded, I believe that I have found a gem of a hotel that is affordable, tranquil and beautiful.

I think the Villa is fabulous and definitely a wonder venue for the Yoga retreat. The roof top terrace was perfect and the gardens very peaceful.

Explore the Lemon Groves

As part of the trip, I organise a trip to a beautiful, traditional lemon grove to see how the local liqueur, limoncello, is made.

I also have very good local contacts with an established boat charter company in Sorrento so can arrange private boat trips to the stunning resorts of Capri and Positano.

I'm happy to help you organise a trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum, just a short distance away by train.

I studied Italian at the University of Hull and Università di Siena and still speak fluent Italian which makes the entire retreat experience so much more enjoyable for everyone involved.

UK YOGA RETREATS

Yorkshire Yoga Retreat

I appreciate that not everyone is always able to travel abroad for a retreat and so I also run an annual mini retreat in the UK over four days and three nights. This takes place in Settle in beautiful North Yorkshire.

The retreat hotel, which overlooks the Dales, was built in 1841 and is both dramatic and romantic. Its quiet and understated atmosphere makes it the perfect place to recharge and relax in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The Yoga studio which looks out to the countryside, called the Garden Room, is breathtaking and the perfect place to breathe, stretch, relax and restore.

Retreat Package

  • 3 nights' superior accommodation 
  • Full cooked breakfast
  • 2-course evening meal
  • Daily morning Yoga
  • Evening relaxations/meditation class
  • Suitable for all ages and abilities (sorry, not pregnancy)

The Benefits of Going on a Yoga Retreat

Having run several successful Yoga retreats, I have seen firsthand the profound effect on your overall health and wellbeing that going on retreat can have. In fact, I would go as far to say that it is something that every busy adult should consider on a regular basis to help them reconnect, restore and rebalance.

Here are the top 10 benefits of a Yoga retreat:

  • Dedicated time to focus just on yourself and your wellbeing
  • Access to daily classes which provide a perfect opportunity to progress your practice and take it to a new level
  • A chance to step back and consider your daily routine back home and replace old habits with new healthier ones
  • An environment which is more conducive to developing a mindfulness and meditation practice
  • An opportunity to unplug and escape from the daily demands of technology, relationships and general life
  • Release of pressure and the expectation to be constantly achieving and working
  • An opportunity to reconnect with Nature and spend more time outside in beautiful surroundings
  • A qualified teacher on hand to help with the specific aspects of your practice you want to develop
  • The chance to make new friends with similar interests from other parts of the country and often around the world
  • In the case of a retreat overseas, the possibility of learning to speak a new language!

These are just some of the benefits of attending a Yoga retreat - why not look into joining me on one of my next retreats in 2023 or 2024? Simply message me on [email protected] for more details and/or book.
