Easter Yoga Retreat: Welcome your Authentic Self
Join us on April 16-23, 2022 for 7 Days of pure Central-Italian bliss!
In our Easter Retreat you will unveil & explore your Authentic Self by practicing yoga & meditation twice a day, eat delicious Italian food and explore one of the most scenic and historically rich regions of Central Italy.
The Retreat Location
Imagine a historic Palazzo sitting at the highest point of a central-Italian village, tastefully renovated, with a heated pool*, immersed in a landscaped garden with Mediterranean flowers, fruit orchards and aromatic plants. Sounds like a dream right?
What’s truly unique about Palazzo Santi Terzi, is that from the internal courtyard, you can exit the palazzo and walk down a cobbled pathway into the centre of San Gemini, a charming medieval town nestled between the hills of southern Umbria. San Gemini is listed in the “Borghi più belli d’Italia”, which is a selection of only the most beautiful and historical small towns and villages in the country.
You will be getting the best of both worlds: the privacy and indoor-outdoor spaces of a private, historic villa, and direct walking access to a town where you can experience the authentic Italian way of life.
*The pool is not a hot tub. Considered the early season the temperature of the water may vary depending on the outside temperature.
The Yoga Program
During the Authentic Self Easter Retreat you will practice yoga twice a day and explore yourself in silence and action.
To get our body moving and prepare for deeper & effective self-exploration we will get into rigorous asana practice, with a balanced mix of Vinyasa and Hatha/Bikram sequencing, Mobility and energising breathwork spiced up à la Oz.
Yin Yoga is also essential in welcoming your authentic self. We will practice “grounding” techniques and make space for contemplation through meditation. Including sound therapy (hello sound bowls!) during practice will concentrate your energy and expand your consciousness in all the right places.
Extra treat! The room where we will practice yoga has a wonderful fireplace that will be lit up during practice to warm up the space and your mood!
And if you want to deepen your practice or have any specific topic you’d like to work-on with personalised guidance, one-on-one sessions with Oz are available upon request.
We will be eating amazing food cooked by a private chef directly at the villa. You will be served Italian food prepared with love using local, seasonal ingredients. The menu will include variations based on any dietary restrictions you might have.
We will also take a journey into regional gastronomy and taste the food of a couple of local restaurants. Yum Yum Yum!
Fun & Experiences
During the day you will choose whether you prefer to relax at the villa, enjoy a dip in the pool or explore the town of San Gemini, have a coffee or a gelato in the Piazza and mingle with the locals.
We are currently working on organising some special experiences that will make your journey even more fun and memorable. More details will follow but we can already tell you that we will go for a “foraging hike” in nature with a local guide and we will have a tasting of some special products from the region.
Being a region so rich in history, art & tradition, you can also decide to explore the region on your own during the day. We are more than happy to assist you with planning a daily itinerary or arranging transportation for you.
