7 Days Silence & Solitude Yoga Retreat in Quarna Sopra, Italy

Meditation and Yoga Retreat Italy

Join Erica for a heartfelt retreat at the stunning Mandali Retreat Center in Lago d’Orta, North of Italy. The seventh chakra, Sahasrara, conveys radiance and regeneration. When we mindfully open the crown chakra we connect to an oasis of silence that gives space to our digital lives. Get out of the universe of over-consumption and surround yourself in nature, where less is more. You will be given the chance to linger over a quiet landscape and enjoy the moments of solitude you’ve been longing for. Yoga is practiced twice daily, 850 meters above sea level, high on a hill with a stunning view of the lake.

Accommodation

This retreat is hosted at the Mandali Retreat Center. Mandali is a peaceful retreat center, established on a mountaintop, overlooking Lago d’Orta in Italy. It is an open space dedicated to spiritual practice and personal transformation. Mandali provides an optimal environment to exchange and receive teachings, wisdom and guidance from some of the world’s most inspiring teachers.

The location is a result of an extended search. When the founders saw the view from the mountain top, it accelerated their hearts. They realized they had found the perfect place. Building this place is their dream and heartfelt intention; to create a place of quiet beauty, to learn, and to relax.

They built the place from scratch. Its architecture is a faithful reflection of the ancient villages by which it is surrounded. The center breathes a soothing, serene atmosphere and offers its guests a guiding hand. You will fall in love with nature, find balance in the elements, and feel harmony with your true self.

Program

Yoga is practiced twice daily, 850 meters above sea level, high on a hill with a stunning view of the lake. This retreat is open to both beginners and advanced practitioners as Erica will weave Vinyasa flow, Kundalini, Restorative, and Yin yoga, meditation, dance, ceremony, healing, and creativity to generate more loving energy. Art and expression is a profound part of your practice while on retreat.

By finding the inner source of safety and belonging, you will learn how to emotionally trust yourselves like never before. These explorations in radical expression will help further your self-study and demonstrate the beauty of your individual spirit.

If you are considering the journey but not yet convinced, then please find the courage to reach out and ask for what you are seeking. Your journey begins with a one-on-one meeting, in person or on Facetime to create a natural and supportive environment right from the start. You are calling forth a collective of empowered, creative, and passionate yoga practitioners interested in cultivating their love to serve the world in a totally different way.
