Full Description

Image waking every morning to an Italian espresso (or tea) and strolling through the enchanting lemon groves of Sorrento, Italy. Make your way to the yoga shala, which is part of the villa in which you are staying, for a morning meditation and yoga asana practice as the sunlight begins to illuminate the never-ending palate of blues in the sea below. Follow this by a hearty Italian breakfast, and then get your camera ready for exploring all that succulent and beautiful Amalfi has to offer.

Meander through the streets of Sorrento, hop on a boat tour of Capri to visit the famous grottos around the island, enjoy the drive over the Sorrentine peninsula to arrive at Positano, Ravello and Amalfi among many other possibilities.

Close each day with a restorative practice and sit around the dinner table with your new friends, sipping Italian wine, enjoying a real Caprese salad and perhaps even close out the fresh Italian dinner with a sip of homemade Limoncello.

It may sound like a dream (which it is!), but it is also an opportunity for deep transformation, self exploration and above and beyond all, celebration!

Join us for a week in heaven. We will be based in a villa just outside the center of Sorrento built in 1870 and owned originally by Italian admiral. Each room in the villa has its own character and the furniture and adornments provide authentic southern Italian character and charm. Our villa sits amongst the biggest historical lemon grove in the south of Italy, and the grove is home to a resident horse, cows and chickens. In 2015, the villa was the setting for a Chinese romantic comedy, “All You Need is Love”.

We will be nourished from locally grown organic produce harvested from the farmer next door, and there will be plenty of time amidst our explorations to relax in the beautiful gardens in front of the villa. For those looking for a unique adventure, wander down through the Roman cave for private access to the sea.

Your trip will include:

8 days, 7 nights accommodation in Sorrento

Three vegetarian meals per day (participants will be responsible for their own lunch on full day excursions), local wine served with dinner

Yoga practice once or twice per day

1 full day tour of the Amalfi coast (Positano and Ravello)

1 full day boat tour of the island of Capri

1 day (or more) to explore Sorrento with a special dinner in town

Transportation to and from Sorrento train station on arrival and departure days

...and possibly other surprises!
