Just north of the city of Civitanova Alta, you’ll find the high-lying estate Oliveto with the beautifully designed Villa Olivo. This recently renovated luxury Italian villa overlooks the beautiful coastline of the Adriatic Sea. Surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves, and old vineyards and only a 10-minute drive from the coast.

Villa Olivo can accommodate 12 guests (excluding the host/yoga teacher), has various facilities, and more than 600 square meters of living space. Take a dip in the heated outdoor pool or unwind in the steam bath, sauna, Jacuzzi, or shower “emotional” with scented water. Would you rather be active? Then train in the gym, take a nice walk, retire with a book or just do nothing at all. There are plenty of options for retreating or just going out. Anything is possible, but nothing is necessary. You can make unlimited use of all facilities.


Yoga style

Hatha yoga is the yoga style that forms the basis of the retreat. Hatha yoga is about creating balance in your own body with an inward focus. Traditionally, postures are performed statically; each pose is held for several breaths. As a result, you learn to tighten and relax certain body parts, which improves body coordination.

Breathing is guiding and reinforces the effect of the postures. You discover the limits of your body and push them without forcing, so that you safely build muscle strength, endurance and flexibility. Mental surrender also plays a role: (learning to) relax, observe, feel and experience. This combination stimulates the overall functioning of the body (among other things organs, glands, and nervous system).

In addition to the more traditional style, you’ll also receive variations of Hatha yoga during the retreat, to know Hatha yoga flow, where the postures follow each other at a slow pace and Gentle Hatha yoga, a softer form, in the evening for a good night's sleep. Furthermore, daily attention is paid to the surya namaskar (sun salutation) and pranayama's (breathing exercises). It does not matter whether you are a beginner or experienced yogi(ni), male or female. Feel welcome!

Retreat location

Between the impressive Sibillini Mountains and the coastline of the Adriatic Sea in central Italy, you will find the picturesque and enchanting region of Le Marche. Untouched nature, endless coastlines of clean, quiet beaches, breathtaking mountain ranges, and charming historic cities, Le Marche has it all. Comparable to the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of Tuscany, but without the crowds. Moreover, trendy beach clubs are not missing. There you can enjoy a snack and a drink while enjoying relaxing (lounge) music. Approximately 5 kilometers inland from the coast, Civitanova Alta is a medieval town to wander through narrow streets.
