Accommodation and meals are basically individual as everyone is free to design his or her stay according to their own tastes, before and after the yoga lessons. The city is small and everything is within walking distance, so you meet outside for the daily lessons and of course, for common activities (such as excursions to the other islands or food with locals). Swiss travel assistance on site is free of charge, so you don't have to worry about organizing the outings.

All accommodations are classified in the national four-star category and are located in the center of Lipari. They differ in price, comfort, and equipment.

Four-star hotel

The beautiful hotels are a five-minute walk from the big harbor and have a beautiful garden and sea view. Here you can enjoy the typical local hospitality and the possibility of the breakfast buffet as well as the whole-day restaurant catering.

Four-star residence

The so-called "residence" offers spacious apartments with terrace or garden. Daily room service is included. The apartments offer cooking facilities.

Apartment

If you do not like hotels and prefer to stay in a central apartment close to the local happenings, this apartment choice is suitable for your needs.

Program

You will be practicing yoga with targeted body movements, breathing exercises, and relaxation. Hatha yoga will help you to optimize your well-being and improve your mental balance. The poses will be without power or competition and will be held pleasantly for only as long as you can. The lessons are suitable for beginners as well as advanced yogis.

In the morning, you will have individual breakfast. From 07:30 until 09:00, you will have pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation and asana, and yoga. Afterwards, you will be given free time for leisurely activities. From 17:00 to 18:30, you will continue with pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation and asana, and yoga. Afterwards, you will have individual dinners.

Retreat location

The retreat will be held in Lipari, Italy. It is one of the seven Aeolian islands in the north of Sicily. These islands are really unique and give a good and fascinating feeling with their volcanic activity. To practice yoga in the midst of this intense Mediterranean nature, is a wonderful and inspiring experience. The most famous of this seven sisters, as they are affectionately called by the locals, is definitely Stromboli with its regularly erupting but harmless volcano.

The yoga week takes place on the main island Lipari which is the biggest island and offers the best connections. Since 2000, the pumice stones of Lipari belongs to the world natural heritage of UNESCO. The yoga weeks on Lipari do not take place in a holiday club, but are held either outdoors or in a central studio.
