During this retreat, you will be staying at InSabina, a beautiful 17th century stone villa surrounded by flower laden vines with simple, natural style bedrooms, that feel calm, cool, and restful. If you’re a nature loving yogi with a sense of adventure, you can stay in one of the yurts instead.

With its spectacular views and magical setting, the retreat villa lies in the midst of the Italian countryside less than an hour from Rome. There are three wonderful terraces from where you’ll enjoy breathtaking sunsets, beautiful meals, and star-filled skies.

Shine Yoga Retreat Italy Program

Start the day with a vibrant Vinyasa flow yoga class. This fluid, dynamic, and invigorating form of yoga will leave you energized and glowing! In the afternoon, you’ll love the deeply calming and Restorative yoga class. A mix of Yin, Hatha, and Restorative styles. You’ll float out of these classes feeling revitalized and relaxed.

Your yoga classes will be filled with accessible teachings and ideas to inspire you and help you reconnect with what’s important to you and to feel so good about yourself. You’ll also experience meditation sessions and guided relaxations to leave you feeling serene, centered, and with a new perspective on meditation. There are two stunning spaces for yoga; an incredible outdoor yoga platform and a serene indoor yoga room overlooking the hills.

Your yoga teacher and Shine Yoga founder, Jennifer Austin, passionately believes that yoga classes should feel fun, relaxed, and inclusive. She loves to create exciting, flowing, original classes with careful sequencing in a joyful atmosphere.
