Yoga Retreat in Italy with Devinder Kaur & Kathryn Flynn
Saturday, October 17th, 2015 to Saturday, October 24th, 2015
About our retreat:
In the heart of the Sabine hills amidst olive groves and a rolling landscape, 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 spiritual practice and restorative vacation.
This retreat is the perfect blend of engaging activity and peacefulness. Every day will include optional yoga classes of your choice with Devinder or Kathryn, including Kundalini, Hatha, and Restorative/Yin practices. All meals are provided onsite by our private chef who will turn the garden’s abundant produce into spectacular vegetarian meals. One day will be a private wine tour to the vineyard covered hills with our guest sommelier, Andrew Rastapkevicius, whose expertise will enchant even the most knowledgeable oenophile. Most days will include an optional offsite activity including olive oil tastings, cooking classes, village tours, and a visit to the healing waters of the nearby sulphur springs.
Our retreat is during olive harvest season, and though not known on the international market, the Sabine hills offer one of the most delicious and pure olive oil experiences in Italy.
There are spaces indoors and out for yoga and meditation, and the property is beautifully designed to reflect the natural environment. In Sabina is a unique place to recharge and immerse yourself in nature! The grounds include several spaces for solitary meditation, reading, and relaxation.
Two lovingly restored 17th-century stone buildings overlook an undulating panorama of olive groves and fruit trees. There are three terraces where you can relax and watch the stunning sunsets. A magnificent yoga platform sits in the valley, surrounded by verdant nature and wildlife as it overlooks a natural spring and lily pond.
Guest rooms are designed in a warm, natural style, a combination of old and new that’s comfortable and calm, and each guest room is unique and named for it’s corresponding colour.
Relax, recharge and soak in the Italian culture… take this time for you to awaken to your own dulce vita and join us to explore this region of Italy. No experience necessary in yoga or meditation – the perfect retreat for you to enjoy with your partner or friend.
The area is rich in sites of historic and natural beauty. There are walks and optional excursions to hot sulphur springs, medieval sites, local festivals in surrounding villages and trips to Rome and Umbria.
