Yoga, the sea & me
Come and join us for the weekend to fully recharge: we will practice yoga outdoors, right by the sea. Take a break and experience yoga and the dolce vita: the right mix between yoga practices and free time to swim in the sea, connect to yourself and to others and enjoy Italy.
PUGLIA , 12- 15 MAY 2023
Treat yourself: you deserve it!
You feel you are always in charge of something or someone? Why not take a break to just breathe, feel the gentle breeze from the sea, practice yoga facing the sea, have a swim, meet new friends, laugh and remember that life is not so serious. This is our invitation to connect again to both something deep (practicing yoga you will connect to your inner self) and something light (have fun and enjoy life).
Join us in Italy where the sun is brighter, the air charged with iodine, the earth terracota red, and the olive trees so old. We will be in a little town by the sea. Imagine yourself waking up with a view on the Big Blue and practicing yoga under the sun.
We will share powerful mix of yoga practices that we love: kundalini yoga, Energy Medicine Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra. All these techniques combined together will recharge you. You will feel so vibrant!
You will have morning and evening long yoga sessions, allowing you to realign physically, energetically and mentally.
The morning sessions will be vitalizing, to provide you with a beautiful energy for the day, and the evening practices will be more relaxing. Everyone is welcome to join, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned student.
All yoga practices will work on our various systems helping the body come into balance.
The Caicco is a historic beach that directly overlooks the crystalline waters of the Adriatic coast, a natural swimming pool terraced into the cliff, between reefs and sulphurous caves that can be reached by swimming. Located inside the thermal park, the Caicco offers opportunities to chill during the day and in the evening.
Santa Cesarea Terme boasts the presence of thermal springs that belong to the group of Salso – bromine – iodine – sulphurous and that are very efficient from a therapeutic point of view. The waters spring at a temperature of 30 ° and come from four natural caves (Gattulla, Solfurea, Fetida and Solfatara) located along the coast.
Petra and I have a special love for Italy, and our last retreat there in 2019 was a dream. When we decided we wanted to host a retreat together again, we knew it had to be in Puglia, the Southern part of Italy. There is definitely a special vibe there, Nature is amazing, food is always good, and people are so friendly.
This sounds like a dream!
This retreat is for you if any of these sounds like YOU!
