Retreat location

This Italy yoga teacher training is hosted at the beautiful Sicilian Spirit retreat center. Nested in the heart of the Madonie Mountain Park, a few miles from Gangi – “Most beautiful village in Italy” – and about 40 kilometers from the enchanting fishing village of Cefalù, Sicilian Spirit hosts yoga and meditation retreats in a respectfully restored 17th-century “Masseria”. Surrounded by 25 hectares of serene park, at 650 meters above sea level, you will be able to walk for hours in the centuries-old oak forest, get lost in the labyrinth garden, explore the banks of their secluded river, meditate or practice yoga at sunrise or sunset in the terrace overlooking the mountains and the valley, or just sunbathe and swim in the infinity pool.
