Yoga calls for us to turn inward and meet what awaits us with an open heart. In this week-long retreat, you will be guided to meet your inner self with kindness and compassion, moving out of your head and into your heart through practices that encourage lightness, reflection, and deep rest.
Each morning, we’ll flow through a vinyasa practice that is both gentle and energizing, inspired by the joy we can generate simply through movement.
In the afternoons, we will take deep rest with restorative yoga and yoga nidra, and we’ll explore the vibrational healing of singing mantra.
These practices allow us to enter a stillness in which we can see ourselves and our circumstances with greater clarity.
Sharing circles will allow time for deeper teachings and reflection on the waves that arise throughout the week. As our time together unfolds and deep practice with these tools becomes second nature, you will uncover new insights about yourself and how you want to move forward into the world.
You will find that in returning to the stillness within over and again, it becomes a more accessible place. Slowly, the sense of calm you find there will begin to reach into other aspects of your life, leaving more room for the abundant joy that comes from living fully rooted in compassion. Above all, you will discover that freedom from worry doesn’t come from controlling your outer world, but from a sense of inner stillness that is accessible to anyone willing to find it.
Fleur van Hille
People often describe me as a warm and sunny person with an intuitive approach to teaching yoga. I like hearing this description because it shows that I’ve made a real connection with my students. And if there’s one thing about yoga that I love the most and which characterises my classes, workshops and retreats, it’s the feeling of being connected.
A retreat offers us the possibility of a truly profound experience of yoga. Surrounded by nature and among like-minded people from every corner of the world, a unique journey unfolds. Conversations open up, emotions are untapped, and discoveries are made…
In the quiet of each morning, we begin our yoga practice in stillness, taking time to anchor our awareness in the present moment through a guided breathing exercise, a meditation or visualisation. Then, drawing on the energy of the rising sun and the freshness of a brand-new day, I lead you through a vinyasa flow that is both gentle and energising.
During the dip in energy that tends to follow lunchtime, the sessions slow down, allowing for a deeper exploration of the techniques and practices encountered earlier in the day. There’s also plenty of time for sinking into a profound state of relaxation with restorative or yin yoga, or even yoga nidra (yogic sleep) – sometimes accompanied by mantras, music, or myths.

about the place
It doesn’t seem possible that In Sabina is less than an hour’s drive from the crowded streets of Rome. With lush, abundant grounds of its own, along with a natural spring and a magnificent wooden yoga platform which overlooks the valley below, this is a truly magical place that’s ideal for spiritual practice, slowing down, and plunging oneself into nature.
