The retreat will take place in Umbria, Italy. You will stay in a beautiful natural setting close to the little village of Preggio. The big house is a former farmhouse with a garden. The style of the house is typical for rural Umbria, with a fireplace in the cozy living room. Olive and other old trees contribute a good shelter in the hot summer. You can choose between three guest rooms. One double room with one big or two twin beds with a shared bathroom on the second floor, one twin bedroom with two separate beds and a shared bathroom on the second floor, or one double room with an extra large bed with an en-suite bathroom on the ground floor.

Program

Welcome to the green heart of Italy! In the morning, you will wake up to the chirping of the birds singing. After a coffee, tea, or hot lemon, you will start your day at 08:30 with yoga. Mats and cushions are available, thereby creating more space in your luggage for other things. It’s time to refresh your soul with the beauty of nature!

During this retreat, you will learn Kundalini, Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin yoga in a lovely yoga studio with a wooden floor. It was used for wine making before.

Kundalini yoga is a part of the tradition of Yogi Bhajan. It is called the yoga of awareness. The exercises are often dynamic, including different breathing techniques, mudras, and mantras. Static postures can be found as well. Kundalini yoga creates the space for an individual experience, encouraging the student to balance the body and the mind.

It strengthens the body, the immune and nervous system, and works wonders in reducing stress. With mostly easy postures, it is suitable for beginners and more advanced students. Upon request, you can also take shamanic sessions and introductions into meditation. Centro Di Luce loves to share the passion for this and for a life in the country with you.

For two evenings, you will have the opportunity to go out to a restaurant which will cost around 20 EUR per person.

Like many other Umbrian villages, times time seems to have stood still in Preggio, a medieval village, majestically crowning the top of a hill.
