Italy: Luxury Spring Weekend Yoga Retreat in Rome

weekend yoga retreat in Rome

Join us in the ‘Eternal City’ for a luxurious weekend yoga retreat in Rome. Picture velvet nights and candy coloured vespas zipping down cobblestone streets.

Imagine coins tossed in fountains and taste melting mint gelato under a glistening sun. Envision yourself leaning over the balustrade of ancient bridges and peering into tiny osterias tucked into fragrant alleyways.

Perhaps Rome is an eternity, and so we are drawn to the one place where we can abandon ourselves to the art of il dolce far niente – the sweet pursuit of doing nothing.

Our home for our luxury yoga retreat in Rome will be the luxurious Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel, a baroque jewel that sits on the lush Janiculum hill. Built in the 17th century by famed architect Francesco Borromini this treasured dwelling was once a convent commissioned by a noblewoman.

While the terracotta rooftop terrace provides us with unparallelled views as we connect to the intimate expression of body and spirit during our morning meditation and yoga classes.
