Walking, Food and Yoga Retreat on the Amalfi Coast, Italy 12 – 17 September (2021) / 22 – 28 May 2022
Yoga, Walking and Food Retreat on the Amalfi Coast
Join us for an unforgettable 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!
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!
Our home during the retreat 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.
A daily meditation and yoga class will be offered at the start of the day in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.
Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students’ needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice.
During the other time in the day we’ll enjoy various walks around the area, and focus on classes and experiences to learn about the region and the cuisine/wine. This combines with the asana practice to deepen our mindful experience during the week in a balanced way.
Our day trips will allow us to experience the many unique landscapes and activities that this area has to offer. We will begin our week with a lemon tour and tasting as well as a cheese-tasting lunch to savour the various mozzarella and flavours of the region, both while visiting the famous nearby towns of Ravello and Amalfi.
A private boat ride will take us to Positano for a stroll in this tiled, famous, chic seaside resort. Other days will be filled with time to relax by the private pool and a nearby beach, as well as a hike on the Sentiero degli Dei, one of Amalfi’s most famous paths, on our way to Positano for an amazing “gastrotrekking” experience with a cooking class and dinner.
We’ll hike to the beautiful town of Furore to visit the region’s highest prized winery for a tasting lunch, and get pampered with spa treatments and a beautiful vista during a final farewell dinner.
Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast and dinner daily, as well as selected lunches.
We’ve carefully chosen delicious and fresh meals from renowned restaurants and chefs which will give guests an expansive experience of the cuisine.
Our dinners will include a few multi-course tasting menus as well as tastings of the regional specialties throughout the week.
We’ll experience tastings from where certain local delicacies are produced like rocky vineyards to small family kitchens. And while on-site we’ll dine in the hotel’s dining room or outside sea-view terrace.
