Facilities

  • Swimming pool (outdoor)
  • Dining area
  • Garden

The farmhouse is in the hills surrounded by trees, with dining both inside the main hall and outside under the stars. There's plenty of space to wander or lay in the sun, as well as a saltwater pool to swim. The garden features a wide variety of organically grown fruits and vegetables, which will become the ingredients for your daily meals.

The rooms are simple yet refined, with attention to details. By using natural materials (wood and terracotta) and repurposing artisan crafts and antiques, the owners of the Equilibrio Bio designed the rooms to reflect the principles and practice of a balanced life: natural, ethical, creative, and loving.

Program

You can commit more intensively to yoga, participate in meditative walks in the woods, or focus on journaling to record your experience. There are many paths to higher self-awareness.

To help you unplug from the outside world, the farmhouse has no phones or televisions (WiFi can be accessed if you need to get in touch with your loved ones once a day). By disconnecting from the chaos of modern life, you can better immerse yourself in the beauty of the Italian hillsides and reconnect with your inner conscious.

Mornings begin with the yoga of both asana and pranayama (poses and breathing) to awaken the mind and energize the body.

Then late afternoons close with yoga designed to calm the mind, regenerate the body and recover mental clarity. These sessions will use a combination of gentle Asanas, internalizing pranayama, Dharana, and yoga Nidra (conscious guided relaxation).

You will also awaken the physiological functions of the body through an integrated "detox" diet, combining herbal teas and centrifuge juices to help your body feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
