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.
