About this trip

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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to drop us a line at

Hi, I'm Tara, yoga teacher, licensed massage therapist, and CEO of We Bring The Yoga, a yoga and massage "catering" company based in Pensacola Florida. We Bring The Yoga works with clients to create meaningful and memorable experiences centered around yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and celebration. I love people, animals, and nature. My favorite thing to do is sit on the beach under a full moon and take in the beauty of the moon shining over the water. I hope to meet you someday for a We Bring The Yoga adventure. :)


Tara has a way of creating a safe space for deep connection. I made friends, laughed, skipped, had fun, ate great food, enjoyed the beauty of nature, and reconnected with myself. Definitely recommend retreats with Tara and I'll be back again!
This is an amazing setting for a yoga retreat. First, the hosts are very skilled at making you comfortable and modifying meals to guest’s requests. The dining is served outside, under the stars, at night. Beautifully prepared, fresh Sardinian fish, salads and vegetables are served with style and affection. The desserts were tasteful, light and delicious! Breakfast is filled with luscious fresh fruit and just baked pastries of varying discription. The local white and red wines were complex and delicious. Rooms are cleaned daily, comfortably and very well appointed for the international traveler. Air conditioning, although not needed much of the day, is available at your fingertips. The setting for sunrise yoga practice maybe one of the most dramatic in Southern Europe, with tide water breaking below you over the rocks. . Later in the day or after dinner, a quick dip at the lap pool is available. Casa Namasta staff are friendly, available and interested in making your stay most pleasant and throughly enjoyable. Yoga was relaxing and modified for each participant’s needs and agility. Tara provided multiple day trip activities throughout the week, a day sailing trip with a very competent, charming captain and host, an afternoon sail boarding and kayaking along the Mediterranean coast, trips hiking and to village towns. This was certainly an adventure of a lifetime! Diane
Such an amazing experience! Tara has such a connection and deep knowledge of this magical rugged land. Her love of Sardegna and its people really shines through the whole experience of this adventure retreat. The accommodations were beyond expectation, truly remarkable and the food and wine were events in themselves. All of our adventures, sailing, paddle boarding, hiking, yoga were so much fun and accessible to the wide range of ages and abilities represented. I will definitely be signing up for another Awakening Woman Retreat with Tara, no matter where she goes!
Full Moon Yoga on the beach with Tara is a fantastic and delicious experience. It is a visual and sensual feast. The artwork in the sky over head as the sun sets is just incredible. It is a canvas for the Gods the way the subsiding light plays off the curvature of the earth and the clouds. The practice, shared with a small group of like minded souls, is challenging, while playful, and yet still grounding. And then the meditation in the light of the full moon as she rises and dances upon the water. It's just... Well... Something so special. It should be savored by everyone with sense of wonder and awe. Full Moon Yoga will leave your soul sated, grounded, restored, and lifted. I highly recommend that you take the opportunity to enjoy these experiences as soon as and as often as your are able.
This trip was amazing. Tara does a wonderful job organizing the trip and being hostess. The food was excellent, the accommodations clean and comfortable. Loved access to the beach. Most of all very much enjoyed the connections made and the warm loving environment created. It was a very nice treat for myself.
