Program

The everyday life in Italy is defined by elegance, you can 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.

Together with Yoga Like a Local, you can discover this elegance; intertwining travel and meditation, yoga and exploration. As well as immerse yourself in a new environment, in the little-known territory that awaits you and able to amaze you if you wish. Allow yourself to experience its elegance like the locals.

Retreat location

This vacation will be held in Palermo, Sicily, Italy. Palermo is one of the most vibrant cities in Italy. It lies between the sea and the mountains, between traditions and an ever more quivering social revolution. At times decadent, often dazzling to the point of blinding.

Most of the social life is carried out on the streets of the historical center: you eat, you sell, you speak and you share because Palermo is the street.

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, Yoga like a local's 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, they will make sure to assign you a house with a terrace, so you can enjoy the view while you practice yoga with our wonderful teacher.

Food

This yoga vacation includes a street food tour where you can taste authentic recipes, a cooking class with a local chef and a wine and tapas tasting in an authentic location.

The street food tour foresees tasting several street specialties, which will be eaten at the best Friggitorias, street sellers and Palermitan pubs unknown to most tourists. Palermitan street food consists of snacks like fried rice balls, Sicilian pizza, chickpea fritters, and potato croquettes.

The cooking class and the market tour with a local chef includes a 4-course lunch, water and wine.

Last, but not least, the wine and tapas tasting will add texture and flavour to your vacation: the ingredients are strictly Sicilian, faithful to the philosophy of respect and support of the territory, promoting the Sicilian excellences that are the result of a reinterpretation of international scents.

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 also 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
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Alcoholic beverages

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

  • Vegetarian
  • Vegan
  • Organic
  • Regular (typically includes meat and fish)

Things to do (optional)

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 with local chefs and market tours, wine and local products tastings, brewery tours and tasting of craft beers, to the ones focused on the Sicilian culture: the anti-mafia movement tour, the street art tour, the tour of craft workshops: old and new traditions, and many more.

They also have options for the more outdoorsy type, such as bike-riding and boat sailing. Share your preferences with them and they will make it happen.

Additionally, there is no shortage of attractions in the area. 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.
