Retreat of the week: Luxury Weekend Yoga Retreat in Rome, 22nd – 25th March

Spread the love

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.

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.

History hides in every corner here – from Renaissance paintings to coffered ceilings, and antique wooden doors. Inviting us to take a break from the hurried life, is the stunning and secluded cloister, now a garden brimming with planted herbs and rose bushes.

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.

Across the Tiber river in the neighbourhood of Trastevere, we meet with vine covered palazzos and hidden vicolos transporting us to another time. Here, the storied past and lively present meet in a spirit that is distinctly Roman – uninhibited and bohemian. Originally, this ‘rive gauche’ quarter was home to artists and dreamers, making it the perfect backdrop for our Escape

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.

It evokes in us a desire, a dream and a smile. “Take the whole day!” Joe Bradley said, to which Princess Anne, Hepburn’s character replied: “I could do all the things I’ve always wanted.” Well we say, take a few days! In March prepare to be enamoured as we take you on the ultimate all-inclusive Roman Holiday!.
