What you'll do
This 7-day yoga retreat is a chance for you to detox your body, de-stress your mind, & develop your practice in a peaceful farmhouse in the Italian countryside. We will develop daily rituals to help us restore our bodies & souls, incorporating Ayurvedic Massage, Shiatsu treatment, Thai massage, meditation, & nutritional plant-based foods along with two sessions of yoga every day.
This is your journey. We will give you the tools you need to explore your mind & body in a nurturing environment – how you choose to apply those tools is completely your choice
You can commit more intensively to yoga, participate in meditative walks in the woods, or focus on journaling to record your experience. There are many paths to a higher self-awareness.
To help you unplug from the outside world, the farmhouse has no phones or televisions (WiFi can be accessed if you need to get in touch with your loved ones once a day). By disconnecting from the chaos of modern life, you can better immerse yourself in the beauty of the Italian hillsides & reconnect with your inner conscious.
Mornings begin with yoga of both asana & pranayama (poses & breathing) to awaken the mind & energize the body.
Then late afternoons close with yoga designed to calm the mind, regenerate the body, & recover mental clarity. These sessions will use a combination of gentle Asanas, internalizing Pranayama, Dharana & Yoga Nidra (conscious guided relaxation).
We will also awaken the physiological functions of the body through an integrated "detox" diet, combining herbal teas & centrifuge juices to help your body feel rejuvenated & refreshed.
Your home in the Italian hills
Based in Umbria (between Perugia & Gubbio) near the Tuscan border, you will stay in Equilibrio Bio, a farmhouse from 1800 that has been revitalized into a yoga retreat center.
The farmhouse is in the hills surrounded by trees, with dining both inside the main hall & outside under the stars. There's plenty of space to wander or lay in the sun, as well as a saltwater pool to swim. The garden features a wide variety of organically grown fruits & vegetables, which will become the ingredients for our daily meals.
The rooms are simple yet refined, with attention to details. By using natural materials (wood & terracotta) & repurposing artisan crafts & antiques, the owners of the Equilibrio Bio designed the rooms to reflect the principles & practice of a balanced life: natural, ethical, creative & loving.
Following your morning yoga, you will enjoy a nutritious breakfast with vegan & vegetarian options made with locally sourced, organic ingredients. Lunches will be richer & more indulgent, while dinners will be light & nourishing. Ingredients will come primarily from the farm on-site, or from neighboring farmers in the area.
