SOLE YOGA HOLIDAYS returns for our 4th retreat at La Selva, now with a deluxe package filled with more activities and fun to truly enjoy this amazing retreat even more! La Selva is nestled high amongst the glorious cliffs of Positano, Italy. At the eco-resort, La Selva, nature reigns supreme, surrounded by olive groves, lemon orchards and gorgeous Amalfi coastal views. Daily Ashtanga power flow yoga is practiced on an outdoor deck with stunning views of Positano or inside a natural rock room with floor to ceiling windows. The shared rooms are rustic, charming and quiet in the evening. Some have private baths and others have shared facilities outside the rooms. The meals are fresh, filling, delicious and vegetarian made with ingredients from the land. Our wonderful hosts also make homemade jams, jellies, teas and honey!
In between yoga, hike down into town for swimming or shopping or take the bus into other adorable Amalfi Coast towns, like Amalfi, Praiano or Ravello. You can also hike around the famous trails or for the more adventurous, try rock climbing with experienced, local guides.
We will go on a 6-hour boat ride excursion one day through the gorgeous Grottos of the coast and then a stopover in Capri where we will have custom-designed leather sandals made for each and every yogi from famous cobbler, Antonio Viva.
We will have a special Positano beach day followed by lunch at celebrity haunt, Chez Black right along the beach.
The retreat location is a hike up from the town of Positano, but close enough for a few hours of beachtime or shopping every day during your free time. This retreat is for an intermediate yogi and athlete as La Selva is only reachable by foot. This location allows for a quiet, relaxing and private week-long retreat. The location does not allow for hiking when it is dark.
If you wish to go out on the evenings in Positano, we offer a wonderful yogi/meals/excursion package without accommodations!
We can't wait to share Positano with you!

The Yoga: The instructors of Sole Yoga Holidays are Yoga Alliance International certified and base their practice on the ancient system of Ashtanga yoga popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois. Our Ashtanga Flow sequence incorporates asanas from the first to the third primary series. The classes combine dynamic postures with strong breathing that exposes the student to a powerful flow for all levels. Perfect for building extraordinary strength, the practice focuses on core work, balancing and inversions. On each holiday we practice twice per day, building up the postures for an incredible and invigorating experience. After the 3rd day we will practice one restorative yoga session to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. All of our instructors are continually learning to bring something new and exciting to all of our students.
