• Everyone wants to go on Retreat!

    Going on a retreat is an incredibly powerful way to deepen your meditation and/or yoga practice. They provide the optimal setting and influence of teachers to allow you to sink into deeper levels of silence and understanding of yourself than is often possible in the hustle of normal life.

     

    Here are some meditation and/or yoga retreats of other teachers around the world we've put together to help you find one that fits what you're looking for.

Rates include 3 meals per day at the villa, 7 nights lodging as outlined below, transportation to and from Rome around the designated arrival and departure times (2.5 hours away), a trip to a local vineyard for wine and lunch, a trip to Perugia for shopping and sightseeing and 12 yoga classes and workshops.

    [Lara's note: I come here every year and it's one of my favourite places on earth to connect to myself, deepen my meditation practice, meet incredible people and feel good. I've taken the Ayuverdic Cooking Course as well as Stress-Relief courses and have attended as a Yoga Vacationer and recommend all of them. I have also visited the Sivananda Ashrams at their locations in Kerala, India and Grass Valley, California, both of which I highly recommend as well!]
