Last Minute Luxury Italian Yoga Retreat Availability

Venice or the Amalfi Coast for the Wellness Traveller? We have two very special retreats to choose from for those looking for a last minute trip to Italy.

Both of these retreats have excellent feedback and reviews.

Amalfi Coast – 12th – 17th September – one space left!

“I wanted to tell you THANK YOU for this amazing trip! Everything was perfect and so well organized. I really appreciate all you did to make this trip such a success. It was so nice meeting you and all the women on this journey together. One of the best experiences of my life! My heart is filled with gratitude. Thanks.”  Monisa – California, USA

Join us for our seven day retreat combining daily yoga classes overlooking the sea, walks and hikes around the breathtaking scenery on the Amalfi Coast.

Praiano is one of the favoured towns on the Amalfi coast for its location and proximity to the more popular tourist-destinations of Positano and Amalfi, but without the bustling crowds. Flanked on both ends by some of the coast’s most amazing coves, this town is the perfect place to retreat!

Our home for the week will be the amazing hotel Margherita in the beautiful town of Praiano. Their terrace restaurant, at the tables of which you will be able to taste the delicacies of the cuisine, is surrounded by the intense colours of the hills and the sea.

All rooms have a balcony, overlooking the ocean or the garden, with classic Amalfi décor, traditional furniture and majolica tiles. With plenty of sun loungers, citrus trees, and a short walk to the beach, you’ll want to stay much longer.

Taste mouth-watering cuisine as you learn firsthand about the amazing flavours of this region and take part in tastings from wine and olive oil, to cheeses, pastries, and lemons. From award-winning restaurants to family farms and kitchens, learning and enjoying the food will be an added bonus to working up an appetite during our classes and walks!

Venice – 1st – 6th November

I felt like I was living in a dream… I’ve become a devotee of yoga and I really can’t imagine anything better than doing yoga everywhere in the world, but adding the art was an incredible bonus. And Venice! I thought one week might be too long, but I can barely wait to return learning about the layers of wonder that exist there. And, then Italy! OMG! Amazing:) Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating such a wonderful excursion and more than that, living in a truly beautiful way, where you are able to manifest your happiest lives while giving sooooo much to others.”

We’re returning to our annual retreat in Venice, Italy – and we’ve added some fun new surprises. This enchanting city is the backdrop of a magical retreat – with daily yoga, creativity workshops, day trips, spas, masks, sites, gondolas, and gourmet meals.

Come away with us for five nights in the magical part of Italy known as Venezia! Venice is a place unlike any other in the world, and to see it is to transport yourself back to the days of Casanova, masked balls, and Carnevale.

Oh, but there is so much more to Venice than what the usual tourist visit can offer. Our yoga retreat will allow for a deeper knowledge of Venice, its canals, and neighboring islands. We’re so excited to offer this retreat during a unique time to visit this amazing city – as it’s out of the main tourist season so you can get a deeper view into the local life.

This is one of our continued collaborations with Julian Hyzler from EASEL&LENS to combine a look at creative focus with art projects in sketching and “ifonography” (smartphone photography) throughout the week.

Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the calm in the magic that is Venice – and then these art projects will help us find news ways of seeing – both yoga and art working together to find focus in the many layers of history, water, and beauty of the Venetian landscape.

You will get to experience all the major forms of water transportation that the city offers, and there’s also plenty of time to explore on your own as well.

All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, non-intimidating and personal experience.
