Join us for an unforgettable yoga adventure at a beautiful private residence in Southern Sardegna (Sardinia). This beautiful Italian island is paradise on Earth. Craggy cliffs, beautiful beaches and the technicolor waters of the Mediterranean will be the backdrop for our exploration of yoga, meditation, sisterhood, AND celebration. Casa Namaste is just a 15 minute walk from the sea, where we will spend mornings practicing yoga and watching the sunrise.
Other activities will include:
*sailing aboard The Starlight III with our favorite captain, Costantino Giorgio
*guided paddle board tour
*exploring the town of Pula
*beach picnic and shopping trip at the local cooperativa
*"Soul Therapy" a unique blindfold dancing experience developed by yoga teacher and DJ, Piero Casanova
And... some other fun surprises. We will also spend some downtime lounging around the casa, during which an on-site therapeutic massage can be arranged for you. (not included in the cost of the retreat.)
Casa Namaste, our OM away from home is impeccably appointed and meticulously maintained by our host Titziano Masi and his crew. We have no doubt you will be blown away by the house, gardens, and the dinners prepared for us each night, including aperitivo, locally caught fresh seafood, authentic Italian pasta dishes, and native wine varietals.
Please be aware that most of our yoga practices will be *outdoors*, either in the gardens at the casa, or on the cliffs overlooking the sunrise over the Mediterranean.
There are several very clean and very well-behaved pets at the casa including two dogs, three cats, and a couple of fancypants chickens. We consider the fur and feathered friends to be part of the charm of the casa. The pets are not at all invasive, but If you really don't care for animals, this may not be the adventure for you. If you really do love animals, this cast of characters will steal your heart. If you are allergic, please rest assured that the casa is kept meticulously clean, and we have never had issues.
The retreat investment includes all activities and *shared* accommodations, (meaning you will have roomates) as well as meals: breakfast & dinner on all days, and lunch on most days, excluding the few when we eat out at restaurants.
Recruit a friend to join you on the adventure and and you will BOTH receive a $100 discount on the balance of our retreat. (we will send you the promo code to use when making your final payment when your friend pays her deposit).
The 9th and 15th are pickup and dropoff days, so we will do our best to coordinate meals on those days to accommodate everyone's travel plans.
Please note: Your airfare to and from Italy/Sardegna is *NOT* covered in the cost of the retreat.
We do provide transport from Cagliari airport (airport code CAG) on the 9th, and airport drop off on the 15th. We would be happy to help you coordinate your flights, give travel tips, etc. If you plan to travel elsewhere in Italy before or after the retreat, a separate flight to Sardinia may be a good option.
We strongly encourage you to do some traveling in Italy before or after the retreat, and would be happy to suggest some favorite places.
