The Dolomites and Venice | Yoga and Italian Cooking Retreat

7th – 13th September

This specially curated yoga and Italian cooking retreat balances the many benefits of yoga and meditation with the joy of Italian wine, food, and culture in the stunning historic setting of Venice and the breathtaking Dolomites. Expect all the senses to be ignited!

South Tyrol in the Dolomites is home to Italy’s German-speaking communities, an area renowned for mountains and lake scenery where Mediterranean charm and Teutonic cheer meet to create an entirely unique culture. This is the South Tyrol, formerly part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and one of the five regions in Italy granted home rule.

In this world of sparkling rivers and green mountains, rustic wooden farmhouses and onion-domed bell towers dotting the mountains, pasta and dumplings happily share the same table, the cellars are full with beer and wine, and yodeling is as popular as opera. Here amid the majesty of the mountains and clean air, enjoy a magical culinary exploration of local artisanal products, cookery lessons, and yoga tuition staying in a former 12th-century refuge, 4430 feet above sea level on the Nonsberg plateau.

Relax, recharge, enjoy the mountain and lake trails and savour those unforgettable night skies, before you head to Italy’s most magical city, Venice staying in the heart of the city close to St. Mark’s Square.

Yoga retreat in Kythnos Island, Greece

1st – 7th September

Join us for a transformative yoga retreat in Kynthos Island on the ancient and unspoiled seashores of Greece. Kythnos Island is a place where time passes a bit slower and you can barely distinguish between what is design and what is nature.

It is known for its magnificent 100 km coastline of sand and pebble bays. Just a short boat ride from Athens, it is surprising how this island has evaded mass tourism. Kythnos truly is Cyclades’ hidden gem.

Practicing yoga in an open studio with a view over the Aegean Sea is one of the most beautiful experiences. Enjoy the benefits of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga in the mornings. Take pleasure in yin yoga, restorative yoga or workshop-style classes in the afternoon while watching the magical sunset. Feel energised, nourished and centred.

Spend your free time exactly as you like. Delight yourself with a massage, swim in the infinity pool, sunbathe on the near-by beach or visit the thermal waters with their therapeutic properties.

The K4 Kythnos Retreat Centre is located by the beach. A sustainable complex of four independent villas, each one boasts a unique Cycladic style and a terrace overlooking the infinity pool and the Aegean Sea. The whole place feels like it’s been suspended 100 feet above the crashing waves.

Each villa is 100 square meters and has an open-space living room, kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a double bed, one bedroom has two twin beds and the third has bunk beds (one large, 160cm wide bed on the bottom and one bed of same size on the top). Each villa can host a maximum of five people.
