Join Yoga Escapes for a luxury yoga retreat in beautiful Sicily, Italy. This is your chance to enjoy the simple pleasures in life - amazing foods, sunny and warm weather, lovely coastlines, and most importantly, plenty of personal time to do as much or as little as you want. You will leave the holiday feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
During the retreat, you will be staying at Grand Hotel Minareto, a luxury seaside five-star resort located right in front of the island of Ortigia, on a promontory in the midst of the crystal-clear waters of the Plemmirio Nature Reserve. The resort’s 93 rooms and four suites are in reserved and exclusive cottages scattered around the luxuriant Mediterranean grounds, a splendid setting dominated by the sea and the sky.
For the retreat, you can choose to be accommodated in either superior sea view rooms or classic rooms. Both rooms provide you with all comforts and luxury accessories: Persian carpets, satin sheets, furnished private terraces, individually controlled air conditioning with air recycling, a computer in the room with complimentary access, a mini bar, in-room safe, and 32-inch LCD television. The difference would be that classic rooms are slightly smaller than the superior rooms and have a view of the garden or pool.
In this retreat, you will practice two yoga classes a day on the terrace with great views. Beginners and advanced practitioners are welcome in this retreat. The teacher, Sarah Scott, will modify the classes so that everyone can practice at their own pace.
Morning classes will feature Vinyasa flow that will get your heart going. In the evening, the class will be more restorative, soothing, and relaxing. The poses will be adjusted depending on the group. You are encouraged to constantly listen to your body and go at your own pace.
This retreat will be held near the town of Siracusa, Sicily, Italy. The town is beautiful and has many things to offer including outdoor markets, stunning coasts, sea view terraces, and restaurants offering delicious cuisine.
During the retreat, you will be served daily breakfast buffet. There is a wide variety of options from omelets and eggs any style, fresh fruits and veggies, yoghurts, juices, breads, pancakes, cheeses, nuts, the list goes on. Gluten-free section will also be available.
Yoga Escapes purposefully do not include dinners into the package so that you can try different restaurants or have dinner on your own rather than joining the group. There are lots of wonderful Italian restaurants in the vicinity and many food options you can choose from. Yoga Escapes will take you to the best ones in town.
There is a spa center in the hotel, offering a variety of treatments that you can enjoy at an additional cost.
Please book your flight to arrive at Catania-Fontanarossa Airport (CTA). Transfer from and to this airport is available upon request.
