The only Sicilian Yoga holiday organized and taught by Sicilian-Londoner Teacher! InSpiral Escapes with Laura Guarnera will offer you a nurturing combination of InSpiral Flow classes (fusing elements of yoga, Pilates, and Garuda), the chance to relax on glorious quiet beaches reachable by bicycle (free from the venue) or on foot, time to pamper yourself by the freshwater pool or in the jacuzzi and indoor spa, and the opportunity to discover the stunning surrounds; the baroque beauty of Noto and the charm of Syracuse. Experience the beautiful simplicity of rural Sicilian life, and invigorate and transform with InSpiral Flow classes. Nourish yourself with home-style Sicilian dishes prepared daily using local, seasonal, and organic ingredients, restore in the jacuzzi and pamper yourself at the indoor spa, bask in the Sicilian sun by the freshwater pool or stunning private white-sand beach, discover the picturesque surrounding coast and countryside - an Italian UNESCO World Heritage Site, and share adventures and laughter with a group of kind, like-minded souls.
A year of research led InSpiral Escapes with Laura Guarnera to discover the most exquisite retreat location on the southeast coast of Sicily. They would be thrilled to welcome you to a renovated Eighteenth-Century Baglio. The name Baglio is used to indicate a typical Sicilian rural summer residence, mostly owned by noble families.
The Baglio is a classic Sicilian farmhouse, set in the fragrant grounds of a biologically cultivated citrus orchard yielding mainly a typical lemon called “Limone di Siracusa”. Many lanes and paths run through the citrus orchard for relaxing walks or bicycle rides. Runners, be them expert or not, will also enjoy the available routes.
Although surrounded by a classical countryside landscape, the Baglio is just a few hundred meters far from the sea. The eighteenth-century manor is amongst the few such buildings in Eastern Sicily.
The Baglio has been finely restored recently, paying particular attention to the selection of materials such as typical stones and local ceramics.
Including a reception, freshwater pool, sun terrace, outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, and private beaches a few minutes stroll away; the Baglio offers the perfect tranquil setting for your rest and relaxation.
Baglio property features four bedrooms (single and double use) and five apartments on split level and one with a fully equipped kitchenette.
Reconnect with a simple, peaceful mode of being; slow down and find the natural rhythm of the body, flow into nature and lift the spirit!
Imagine a little Eden, a garden of orange and lemon trees that covers 40 hectares. And in the middle a fence white lime, two centuries old, intact in its rural function.
For the dream, there is the atmosphere of Sicily that here smells of orange blossom and salt, stone and myth, history. The tranquility of the place, the kindness, and hospitality of its people, and the wonderful surrounding nature, allows InSpiral Escapes with Laura Guarnera to offer you what you like the most: a place that invites you to practice yoga, pilates, and garuda, take walks, or simply dedicate to yourself the time you deserve.
On this holiday, InSpiral Escapes with Laura Guarnera will offer you a nurturing combination of InSpiral Flow classes (fusing elements of Yoga, Pilates and Garuda), the chance to relax on glorious quiet beaches reachable by bicycle (free from the venue) or on foot; you will have time to pamper yourself by the freshwater pool, use the jacuzzi & indoor SPA, and the opportunity to discover the stunning surroundings of Noto and the charm of Syracuse.
InSpiral Flow classes are for everyone who would like to find more strength, confidence, fluidity, and flow-in body and mind. All are welcome and it doesn’t matter if you have never done yoga or Pilates before or if you have been practicing for years. The retreat's unique approach is inspired by the body’s innate spiral movements.
Each morning, you will practice a dynamic yoga flow class on the beautiful front lawn. The focus will be on improving flexibility and cultivating a sense of ease and well-being.
At sunset, you will come together for a core-focused Pilates or Garuda practice to cultivate inner and outer strength and functionality. Both are infused with the gentle and poetic InSpiral style, which challenges and invigorates without the stress of forcing, fixing, or conquering the body.
Whether it is a slow flow or dynamic class, the journey will invite you to a conversation with yourself: your body, your mind, and your emotions. It is geared towards the individual who wants to expand their understanding of practice as a means of optimizing their well-being.
In Indian mythology, the Garuda is a sacred mythical bird that changes shape according to its function. It’s a fitting name for this new exercise system, which is unique in its versatility, flexibility, and precision of movement. Developed by James D’Silva founder of the Garuda Pilates Studio and Clinic, London, Garuda combines the strength work of pilates, the breathwork and asana practices of yoga, and the grace of dance.
The benefits of Garuda include increased strength, flexibility, coordination, and endurance with a greater sense of ease and wellbeing. Garuda draws deeply on mental focus and teaching relaxation through movement. Like yoga, Garuda also massages the internal organs and aids in detoxification. Garuda is a non-stop flowing class that is challenging and mindful. You will leave feeling invigorated. It is suitable for anyone with some experience in yoga and or pilates.
Laura`s work is informed by a lifetime of exploration in movement. She is a versatile and knowledgeable teacher. Her background combines dance, Pilates, yoga, Franklin method, and Garuda. Laura is a Pilates foundation teacher as well as a Yoga and dance teacher. Laura's style is a unique, gentle, and fluid style, aimed to challenge and invigorates body and mind. She blends her passions for yoga, dance, and Pilates in a creative fluid way, where magic and imagination are waved together.
