Walking, Food and Yoga Retreat on the Amalfi Coast

Dates: 24th – 30th May

Amalfi Coast Yoga retreat

Have you ever wondered if there is a still a pocket of Italy as yet undiscovered by travellers? A pocket, moreover, that encloses dramatic mountain scenery and golden beaches?

A protected place that has kept the coast pristine and the hills a reserve for rare plants and birds? And all an easy two hour train and boat ride from Rome? Well wonder no more – we will take you to a place where legends are made on this yoga and photography retreat.

Mythology meets nature on the mythical island of Ponza. Famed for its role in Homer’s Greek epic – The Odyssey, this jagged gem is where Ulysses and his men, returning from Troy, are lured by the enchanting sorceress Circe to her palace for a year-long stay of luxury and leisure. Circe continues to cast her intoxicating spell drawing us to her opulent shores for an indulgent week of yoga and personal discovery.

In the verdant heart of the Ponte Islands is the pretty pastel coloured waterfront town of Ponza. Up a winding road we find our picturesque Boutique Hotel – Chiaia di Luna – where we nestle in for our relaxing week. Here we breath in the fresh sea air and soak up the sunshine while gazing over the volcanic sister islands. Nestled in a mountainous embrace, few hotels can better this magical setting —- the meditative sound of the sea lapping up the rocks below.

Euphoria Emotional and Physical Transformation Retreat

Dates: 3rd – 10th November

yoga retreats in Europe

The Euphoria Emotional and Physical Transformation Retreat is our signature intensive retreat and aims to improve your overall state of emotional wellbeing and bring harmony to your life.

By addressing all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual – it assists your self-reflection and contemplation and enhances your evolutionary journey towards self-awareness and illumination.

The Ancient Hellenic and Chinese civilisations observed the cosmos and human organisms and developed philosophies that in detail describe both. Most of the principles of these philosophies have been confirmed by today’s science.

Euphoria Retreat’s concept stands on these two pillars of ancient wisdom, which describe how energy flows in our body and how the body is influenced by the cosmos, giving guidance that derives from thousands of years of experiences on how to live a euphoric and healthy life.

Modern evidence-based science provides clear answers on whether something is valuable or not, and gives information on a biochemical level regarding what is needed to support wellbeing – vitamins, minerals etc – and uses medicine to cure and set a safe basis for complementary and alternative medicine.

In this way, Euphoria Retreat has developed wellbeing programmes that centre around the five elements of earth, fire, water, wood and metal and their related energies and emotions, with treatments designed to bring balance by addressing the three levels of existence (emotional, physical and spiritual).

A variety of individually designed programmes includes signature retreats, mini retreats, wellness consultations and mental coaching, as well as a wide range of massage therapies, signature bodywork experiences, holistic healing practices, pampering face and body treatments, wellness coaching, and body and movement fitness activities that focus on bringing enduring harmony.

On a daily basis, you will explore your relationship to each element (water, wood, fire, earth, metal), with physical/energy treatments as well as in intimate group sessions. The program also includes nutritional assessment through innovative technologies.
