Program

The everyday life in Italy is defined by elegance, you could say that it is an attitude; that you can notice in the gestures of a fisherman at the market or a farmer in the garden, or in laughter on a fragrant May evening. You can touch it when you enter the cathedrals of the cities or when you taste a recipe that has been handed down orally, generation to generation.

Retreat location

This vacation will be held in Genoa, Liguria, Northern Italy. Known as one of the most extensive medieval historical centers in Europe, the heart of Genoa is a maze of alleys that unexpectedly open up into small squares, often related, like the churches overlooking them, to important noble families.

The spirit of Genoa lies in the alleys, where different smells, tastes, languages ​​, and cultures perfectly blend in. If you're traveling by yourself and there are no other guests who chose the same dates as you for this yoga vacation, the classes will take place in the apartment, your yoga teacher will come to your temporary home for each lesson. Can you imagine the pampering? Her attention will be all to yourself.

If it's sunny and warm, Yoga like a local will make sure to assign you a house with a terrace, so you can enjoy the view while you practice yoga with their wonderful teacher.

Food

This package contains a welcome drink, an apericena in a typical bar, a tasting of focaccia, and a vegetarian dinner. You might wonder what an apericena is. When the aperitif becomes so rich that you no longer need to have dinner, Italians call it Apericena.

This is the right aperitif for those who choose quality and health and want to taste the genuine products of the farmers. You are in the city but the flavors recall the countryside.

The focaccia tasting includes 6 different types of focaccia including the renown cheese one and a drink (Yoga like a local recommends the Chinotto, a match made in heaven).

Last but not least, the vegetarian dinner will surprise you. Its flavors and colors unite Genova, the rest of Italy and Spain with tapas and pinchos. The music, the lights, and the design of this charming location will create the perfect mix between intimacy and conviviality.

Additionally, Yoga like a local can customize your trip as you want to. Meals can be added to your vacation for an additional cost, they can accommodate any dietary requirements, just share your thoughts with them and they will be more than happy to arrange it for you.

The following drinks are included:

  • Water

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Vegetarian
  • Regular (typically includes meat and fish)
  • Other dietary requirements on request
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation

Things to do (optional)

Ancient maritime republic, Genoa is a city that still conserves a unique charm. Most tourists visit the city only for its famous Aquarium; but really, the Ligurian capital has much more to offer to its visitors. The best idea is to mingle together with the locals and let them advise you on the upcoming events and shows. It is not unusual that you will end up spending the night at someone's place, sharing stories and good wine.

Yoga like a local has a wide variety of experiences that you can try during your stay, from the ones centered around food such as cooking classes, wine, and local products tastings, brewery tours and tasting of craft beers, to the ones focused on the Ligurian culture: walking tours with locals, tours of the historical artisan shops, tour in the footsteps of the renown Fabrizio De Andre and many more.

They have options also for the more outdoorsy type, such as bike-riding, SUP and kayak experiences and boat tours. Share your preferences with them and they'll make it happen.
