A TYPICAL YOGA RETREAT DAY…
There will be a morning and an evening practice each day. Following the rhythm of the day, the morning sessions are invigorating, transformative and cleansing for the mind and body, and the evening practice, more lunar and nurturing, incorporates meditation, yoga nidra and relaxation. One half days day off mid stay to explore the beautiful Sabine hills and sightseeing the historic Italian hilltowns nearby.

Depending on the energetics of the class some mornings we will have a light fruit snack before yoga and brunch after practice. Similarly on the excursion days we will change meal schedules to enable free time. Usually we end up having the same all week to free up time, ie light snack before practice, brunch after practice, afternoon snack and then dinner after the evening practice.

Come a day early early or leave late to spend an extra day exploring Rome, Spoleto, Orvieto,  Siena and Assisi (only 45 minutes to 2 hours away)! Or we can arrange for you to stay longer at In Sabina at an extra cost

Dolce Vita …

Accomodation

At In Sabina you will find a lovely arrangement of beautiful rooms set in acres of lush groves of olive trees, fresh fruit trees, flowers, and all the beauty the Italian landscape has to offer. Rooms are spacious and well equipped, some of them with shared bathrooms with another room and some en-suite. Limited single occupancy, book early.

The region has long been famous for its quality food and drink; the olive oil is even considered to be one of the best in the world. In Sabina is featured in the Taschen publication ‘Great Yoga Retreats’! More information and pictures on: http://www.insabina.com.

MAGICAL ITALY!

Prepare to be completely enchanted every day by the gorgeous rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside during your summer yoga retreat in Italy.

The In Sabina estate is located in the heart of the Sabine hills, only an hour from Rome – but a world away from the hustle of the city. Two beautifully restored 17th century stone buildings overlook an incredible panorama of olive groves and fruit trees, as well as lush gardens, a pond and swimming pool. There are three terraces with stunning views for relaxing and watching the amazing sunsets every night.

Within the grounds next to the olive groves there is a gorgeous and spacious open-air yoga platform designed by the architect Marco Antonini, with stunning & panoramic views of the rolling Italian landscape. There is also a second indoor converted yoga room, with large windows over looking the hills & trees.

The surrounding area is rich in medieval Italian history as well as natural beauty. Guests can enjoy visits to Torri, an ancient village with barely 1000 residents only 3km away, and the charming hilltop town of Casperia, only 10 minutes drive from the yoga retreat centre, and where you can stay before or after the retreat at the charming La Torretta Bed and Breakfast.

The setting is rustic but magical, peaceful and quiet. An ideal place for spiritual practice.

Cuisine

I firmly believe that your yoga practice should be supported by delicious and wholesome food. The mouth watering vegetarian meals cooked by our local chef, are cooked using local produce. You will sample some of the traditional recipes of  Italy as well as raw and alkalising meals and some comfort food too. You will be served fresh, healthy, incredibly delicious organic vegetarian food. Schedule may vary slightly but usually there will be a substantial brunch and dinner every day, apart from Friday when the group will enjoy an evening out to a local restaurant.  Fruit will be available before morning yoga for those who need a little something and a snack mid afternoon. They can cater for gluten free, dairy free and vegan but not for dislikes and not necessarily for more unsual dietary restrictions so do enquire before booking if this relates to you. You will be surprised on how strong and healthy you will feel by the end of the week. For the same reason the retreat is strictly alcohol free and we strongly ask you to respect that by not bringing any wine or spirit at the venue nor in your bedroom and to not encourage others.
