Accommodation

Facilities

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Outdoor shower

For this holiday, Kelly Brooks Yoga only offers sharing accommodation. There are two indoor toilets, and two outdoor compost toilets and showers. Casalino is a very old rustic house immersed in nature so the facilities and accommodation are of the basic quality you would expect to find at such a place. However, improvements on the house are constantly being made.

Staying at Casalino is reasonably comfortable but it is not a holiday resort so you must be prepared to take care of your own needs of comfort and personal requirements. The house is not connected to the electrical grid. There is only a small solar system; therefore, your electricity is very limited, but there is enough to run small devices such as mobile phones chargers, etc. It is the perfect excuse to switch off from social media for the week and give your body the break it deserves.

Program

This retreat is open to conscious beginner up to intermediate students. All classes will have variations and modifications for your body. As a beginner, it is a great avenue to dedicate some time to your yoga practice and if you are experienced then its a great opportunity to deepen your practice in a perfect location and relax into positions you may not have connected with yet.

Sample schedule

  • 09:15 - 11:15 Two hours alignment-based morning yoga
  • Tea
  • Lunch
  • Time to chill/hike
  • 17:30 - 19:00 75-minute of evening Restorative yoga/meditation/pranayama session

There will be some meditation and chanting intertwined in the sessions, Klub yoga session on the last night and an additional inversion yoga workshops. The actual schedule will available for participants who sign up but the above is a rough estimate of what to expect. A detailed schedule will be sent before the holiday. Everything on this holiday is optional as this is your holiday. Kindly note that excursions will be built into the week depending on the weather.

Retreat location

Casalino is the name of the old farmhouse situated in an area in the east of Tuscany called the Casentino in Italy. The house is reached by an old stone road only accessible on foot or by 4WD. Casalino lies within the Foreste Casentinese National Park - an area of about 36,000 hectares of uninterrupted forest - and thanks to this the original fauna for reclaiming its place.

With porcupines, wild boar, roe and fallow deer and even wolves rambling the landscape, it is easy to feel as though you are the intruders. The many footpaths leading through the park make it easy and pleasurable to explore the environment. One point of great importance and spiritual interest in the area is the Sanctuary of St.Francis of Assisi - La Verna - which is just one and a half hours walk from Casalino through an age-old beach forest known as the enchanted forest.

Being so deep in the wilderness away from civilization, Casalino very much creates a feeling of holiday from day to day life. Its the perfect setting to immerse yourself in nature, unplug from your daily life, and reconnect with yourself.

Distances

  • The Sanctuary of St.Francis of Assisi, La Verna - 1.5 hours walk
  • Bologna Airport - 5 hours
  • Florence Airport - 3 hours
  • Perugia Airport - 5 hours
