The day of renewal, the first day of winter, the shortest day, the prelude to the unconquered sun, celebrated since the origins of man through innumerable cultures and religious traditions, the winter solstice is the most sacred moment of change, renewal, alignment and new beginnings of the annual cycle. Welcome its transformational energy into your life through multiple daily yoga session, warm water yoga, pranayama, asana, rituals, contemplative meditation, Vedic group discussion and ancient philosophies.

This international gathering of fellow enthusiasts of all levels will be guided by Yoga-Alliance great grandmaster, Paolo Proietti and Yoga-Alliance master, yogini Lauran Nalin. They will take you on a safe journey to the depths of your power and beauty. And each day will be a mixture of practice, relax, sharing and discovery. Designed in harmony with this defining an auspicious time of the year.

As you prepare for the Day of Renewal, to awaken the energy of your inner sun, feast on excellent rustic Mediterranean-inspired meals with local wines and locally-grown and lovingly prepared ingredients. Inhale deeply in the daily yoga sessions. Replenish and let go in the warm water of the SPA pool -perfect for water aerobics or lazy chats toasting with local wines.

Exhale and enjoy some peaceful and full contemplation by the centenary olive groves. And finish with a ritual and group connection around the fire.
