8 Day Yoga Holiday in Elba, Province of Livorno

Villa Shanti, Costarella, Marciana Marina, Italy

Yoga Retreat in Elba

Welcome to Elba! Enjoy your time on the island with daily asana and pranayama sessions in the morning before you will have plenty of time in the afternoon to explore your surroundings on hikes or relax at the close by beach. In the evening, you will enjoy a barbecue and can end the day in complete relaxation with an optional meditation.

The Yoga sessions will be hold outside if the weather allows. We have a beautiful garden where we can do Yoga under palm trees, the next sandy beach is 3 km from the house, the magical rocks, nice for the sun solutions, are as well nearby. We are opening an indoor Yoga Shala in Villa Shanti in April. And an Outdoor Shala in June when it is getting hot.

As we teach many Yoga styles we are adapting to the people and the group. I personally love to do a mixture of Power and YinYoga. But as well Restorative Yoga and Yoga for Fascia are available. Morning and evening meditation with the magical surrounding of Villa Shanti is spectacular. We are looking on the beautiful little villages of Marciana Alto and Poggio and the high energetic Monte Cabane, which is the highest mountain of the island with its 1200 meters.

Villa Shanti has a marvelous garden with palm trees, lemon trees, orange trees and satsuma trees. We are planning to install a jacuzzi soon (the project will be completed by April 2018) and have hammocks in our garden that invite you to relax. Since we are located close to the mountains, it's never unbearably hot. Pleasant temperatures and mild winds make up the climatic conditions in Marciana.

We have three apartments with separate entrances that are each furnished with a small kitchen with a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge. Each apartment is additionally equipped with a small living room with a TV.

Apartment Pomonte (max. 4 persons) is roughly 40 square meters big and consists of a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room which sleeps two, and a double room that can be accessed via a staircase.

Apartment Scirocco (max. 6 persons) is roughly 60 square meters big and consists of a double room with a small terrace and bathroom, a living room with a kitchen and another bed. A second double room can be accessed via a staircase.

Apartment Mistral (max. 8 persons) is roughly 90 square meters big and consists of three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room with a big kitchen that sleeps two people, a big terrace and a separate entrance.

All three apartments come with a terrace, access to the garden, a separate barbecue spot and hammocks to relax in the garden.

There are two yoga shalas indoors and outdoors. The style of the Villa Shanti is Asian while the garden and the terraces have a Mediterranean flair. We have our own garden where we grow fruits and vegetables.

Retreat location

Villa Shanti is located between Marciana Marina and Maricana Alta at the coastal road called Costarella. It's only 3 km to the sea and 1,5 km to Monte Cabane, the cable railway atop the highest mountain of the island.

Directly behind the villa, you can find a natural reserve with Fonte Napoleone, a spring with crystal clear mountain water of amazing, continuously controlled quality.

Elba is home to the most beautiful beaches in all of Italy, both rocky beaches and sandy beaches. We will take our yoga practice to the beach and enjoy the clear water, more beautiful than in the Caribbean, mild temperatures that allow for swimming until November, and romantic as well as secluded beaches.

Surrounding the villa, mountain sheep and hogs roam free and you can marvel at fields of orchids in the month May.
