Bliss out this summer with a special yoga retreat at the beautiful In Sabina estate in Umbria, Italy. Relax and recharge with expertly guided yoga and meditation classes, incredibly delicious organic food and enough free time to truly let yourself go. In Sabina has a welcoming and magical environment that is the perfect place to blend good health with good living.
Two beautifully restored 17th century stone buildings overlook an incredible panorama of olive groves and fruit trees, as well as lush gardens, a pond and swimming pool. There are three terraces with stunning views for relaxing and watching the amazing sunsets every night.
Within the grounds next to the olive groves there is a gorgeous and spacious open-air yoga platform designed by the architect Marco Antonini, with stunning and panoramic views of the rolling Italian landscape. There is also a second indoor converted yoga room, with large windows over looking the hills and trees.
At In Sabina you will find a lovely arrangement of beautiful rooms set in acres of lush groves of olive trees, fresh fruit trees, flowers, and all the beauty the Italian landscape has to offer. Rooms are spacious and well equipped, most of them with shared bathrooms. Several single rooms are available, at additional cost.
There will be a morning and an evening practice each day. The morning sessions are invigorating and cleansing for the mind and body, and the evening practice incorporates meditation, yoga Nidra and relaxation.
You will also have two half days or one full day off mid week to explore the beautiful Sabine hills and sightseeing the historic Italian hilltowns nearby.
This special summer yoga retreat is lead by Margherita Dal Pra. Margherita is an extraordinary yoga and meditation teacher with over 14 years of teaching experience. Her unique classes combine a synthesis of Anusara bio-mechanical principles of alignment with heart-centered themes, and the lineage and depth of knowledge of Tantric Hatha energetics in the ParaYoga® style.
The July-August yoga retreat in Italy is open to all ages and levels of fitness and experience. Every session will have attention to detail (alignment), awareness of breath (pranayama), openness to grace (attitude) and intelligent sequencing (vinyasa krama). The morning yoga classes promise to be more upbeat and energizing, with the afternoon classes more relaxed and calming.
Margherita will lead you through every step of this retreat with her unique combination of experience and care. All sessions will be adapted to the group and modifications of the poses will be offered to cater for all participants and to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and individual attention. You will emerge from this retreat a different person than the one that arrived.
Prepare to be completely enchanted every day by the gorgeous rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside during your summer yoga retreat in Italy. The In Sabina estate is located in the heart of the Sabine hills, only an hour from Rome - but a world away from the hustle of the city. The setting is rustic but magical, peaceful and quiet. An ideal place for spiritual practice.
The region has long been famous for its quality food and drink; the olive oil is even considered to be one of the best in the world. In Sabina is featured in the Taschen publication ‘Great Yoga Retreats’!
