Ashtanga retreat in Umbria, Italy June 14-21. 2018





Start the Summer with Yoga in beautiful Italy.

One week in picturesque monastery in Umbria: enjoy yoga, local food and the ambiece of village life!

This is a  chance for you to meet summer in beautiful Italy, to go deeper in your yoga practice, to relax and have some "me-time."  With its sunny landscapes and picturesque old towns, Italy, for many of us, holds a special place in the heart. On this retreat we have combined Yoga with all the wonderful things Italy has to offer!

We will live in a historical setting in the monastery "Il Convento", which is a privately owned monastery dating back to 1158, located at the heart of the pilgrims walk between Rome and Assisi. The monastery, situated close by the picturesque, medieval town of Trevi, enjoys a peaceful atmosphere, which creates the perfect setting for your yoga practice. Here we will enjoy tasty, locally grown food, and we have our own monastery garden to relax in, complete with swimming pool and sun beds. So whether you want to hang out with your new yoga friends, go for a walk  - or maybe visit Trevi - this retreat no doubt has a lot to offer you!
