Join us for our 7 day retreat focussing on kundalini and ashtanga yoga in Sicily. These two powerful styles of yoga will create strength, balance and healing.
Through the profound practices of kundalini and ashtanga yoga, pranayama, sun flow, along with the support of polarity and craniosacral therapies, we will embark on a transforming journey into the self. Indulge in some delicious vegetarian meals and silent walks while discovering the enchanting beauty of Sicily.
In our stunning Sicilian setting, just 10 minutes from the sea, you can find yourself and learn how to adjust your lifestyle to better suit you and your health.
Kundalini yoga focuses on the endocrine and nervous systems and its various breathing techniques and mantras build resiliance and stamina. Ashtanga is a physically potent practice that uses long and deep breathing in sync with the constant flow from one asana to the next and enhances your body’s strength and flexibility. To enrich the retreat we will incorporate yoga nidra, yin yoga, Tibetan bowls and a full sound bath.
