"What I loved about the Retreat. "
The open air yoga every morning and evening.
The highlight was meditating beside the water -the memory will stay with me forever.
Having the water so close by and being able to swim whenever I wanted was wonderful. The place is so tranquil. A perfect location for a retreat!

Lovely location and loved being able to practice yoga outside. A relaxing atmosphere in a more familial type setting Loved being able to walk to the bottom of the garden and go and swim in the sea in peace as opposed to the busy public beaches .

"Wonderful Home Away from Home"
We have just returned from Juicy Yoga Retreat in Sicily and it was our best holiday yet. We were thoroughly welcomed by host instructor Jessica who could not do enough for us.
Delicious gourmet Italian vegan food was prepared fresh for us at the villa every day, the location was stunning (lovely garden with private access to rocky beach - great place for reflection, swimming and suntanning!). Quality of Yoga delivered by instructors was excellent (2 classes a day). Town of Siracusa/Island of Ortigia just 20 mins away by bus (bus stop close to villa), lovely to explore this historic town.
Incredible experience throughout - thank you Jessica :-)

The place is beautiful, just by the beach where you can rest between yoga sessions. Jessica and her dad were so nice with us and made us feel like at home. We also had a great cooking experience with Giovanni and a nice body massage.

"Oceanside yoga retreat"
The villa is located right beside the Ionian Sea. So the sound of the ocean is the soundscape to the yoga retreat. Two yoga sessions each day, excellent food and a full body massage all encourage relaxation and calm. And it is only one hour from Catania airport, so it is very accessible

"The most incredible experience!"
It's difficult to put into words how wonderful my trip with Juicy Yoga, Jessica and her wonderful father was! We were housed in a beautiful sea-front villa and took our yoga classes with the sound of the waves around us, were treated to an authentic Italian cooking class and an outdoor aromatherapy massage which was so, so relaxing! The yoga classes were brilliant and the yoga Nidra was a particular highlight of mine. The whole experience was like being with a warm, welcoming family. I cannot recommend this retreat enough!
