Autumnal Escape

All Level ✺ 15-21 October 2023 ✺ In Sabina, Rieti, Italy

This autumn retreat has been designed to allow you to deeply re-tune your inner rhythm with that of the surrounding nature, drawing on both its energising yang power and its enveloping yin softness. It is the ideal time to release and let go but also to focus on our inner warmth, to establish comforting routines and to slow down our pace.

As the colours of Autumn twinkle and dance across the  magical countryside of Italy, we will spend a week together surrender by stunning views over rolling hills and olive groves. This retreat embraces the abundance of harvest time, offering a balance between yin and yang energies with daily yoga practises, meditation, breath-work, restoration and relaxation. 

We embrace the start of each day with a soulful and uplifting dynamic „yang“ yoga practices (Vinyasa flow) that accommodates all levels. We will also explore various meditations and pranayama practices. Come late afternoon, you can enjoy a soothing guided relaxation, Yin or Restorative yoga. We will spend some magical time getting to know ourselves and feeling in harmony with life. All this deeper work will balance with free time for rest,  reading, contemplation, walks in nature, ceramic workshop, massages and light-hearted time.

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. More
