New dates for 2018! the circle is unbroken…

With Special Guest:

Omer Gonen-Haela

Image waking every morning to an Italian espresso (or tea) and strolling through the enchanted lemon groves of Sorrento. Make your way to the yoga shala for a morning meditation and yoga asana practice as the sunlight begins to illuminate the never-ending palate of blues in the sea below. Across the gulf of Naples, Mount Vesuvius sits quietly holding the power of transformation.

This week on the magical Amalfi coast will be an exploration of practice, ritual, finding your inner rhythms and setting your voice and expression free. A unique blend of yoga, mediation, plant medicine and music, we will guide you, hold you and offer beautiful new perspectives.

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!

In your time off…

Meander through the streets of Sorrento, hop on a boat tour of Capri to visit the famous Blue Grotto, enjoy the drive over the Sorrentine peninsula to arrive at Positano, Ravello and Amalfi.

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

Villa Il Pizzo

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.
