Ashtanga Yoga retreat to Italy 12th - 19th October 2013
with Cathy Haworth
The perfect escape for those who would like the luxury of a daily ashtanga yoga class, walking in Italian countryside and time to relax and de-stress.
In the heart of the Sabina hills amidst olive groves, woodlands, rolling landscape unchanged for centuries, lies a peaceful haven of repose. With its spectacular views and magical setting In Sabina lies in the midst of the Italian countryside less than an hour from Rome. The grounds are lush and abundant, with a natural spring, gardens, pond and swimming pool. The property is peaceful, rustic and ideal for a yoga retreat.
Each morning there will be a Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga
session with 2 start times to accommodate both beginners and the more advanced practitioner. There will be 5 afternoon/early evening sessions, these will be workshop style classes looking at different aspects of the ashtanga practice. This will leave time to wander through the extensive grounds which are a joy to explore, with sheltered spaces for reading and meditation. A variety of restorative treatments can also be arranged.
The area is rich in sites of historic and natural beauty. Activities include walks, excursions to hot sulphur springs, medieval sites, local festivals in surrounding villages, swimming in nearby rivers and springs, and trips to Rome and Umbrian towns. Cities and towns within easy access of In Sabina include Rome (45 minutes), Spoleto and Orvieto (1 hour), Siena and Assisi (2 hours).
Accommodation is in two beautiful restored 17th century stone buildings which overlook an undulating panorama of olive groves and fruit trees. There are three terraces with beautiful vistas for relaxing and watching the stunning sunsets. The charming medieval village of Torris in Sabina nestles in the hills nearby. Inside, rooms are designed in a simple natural style, a combination of old and new. Furnishing and fabrics complement the buildings and their natural surroundings, creating an environment which is calm, comfortable and practical.
