Locanda del Gallo

Please note: There are only a few spots left for the week of June 18th-25th
This retreat will be featured in the March issue of Yoga Journal so please don’t wait to sign up as it is going to fill very quickly!

If lush rolling hills, medieval towns, and ancient olive estates are your glass of vino, then have we got a retreat for you!

Located in Umbria, the heartland of Italy, our retreat centre is no ordinary place. Set high on a ridge, the 12th century property features panoramic views, a Moorish-style spa, ecological swimming pool, ample gardens, terraced lawns and woods, ideal for afternoon reveries. The kitchen will seduce you with the simple pleasures of Italian cuisine. Trust us, once you experience la dolce vita, you’ll never want to leave.

This therapeutic retreat is tailored to bring you deeply into the heart of your individual practice. No one-size-fits-all instruction here, thank you very much. Beginners, seasoned practitioners, and everyone in-between will receive the kind of personal attention and patient instruction that catalyzes personal breakthroughs and supports lasting change. You can expect a deep dive into nurturing movement, juicy self-massage and self-care techniques, yogic breath-work, and meditation.
