About this trip

Join SOLE YOGA HOLIDAYS along the Italian Riviera in the glorious region of Cinque Terre, Italy, June 17-23, 2018. Here along the Ligurian Coast is  some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on earth! Cinque Terre, or 'five villages'  is comprised of colorful houses and vineyards that cling to steep  terraces and harbors filled with fishing boats and beaches dotted with  candy-colored umbrellas. The Sentiero Azzurro cliffside hiking trail  links the villages and offers sweeping sea vistas. It truly is one of  the most heavenly places for a summer yoga and wellness retreat!

Accommodations and Meals


Our retreat takes place at a gorgeous and private villa  in Levanto. This darling seaside town is just 5 minutes away from the  neighboring Cinque Terre, but far enough for a divine and peaceful yoga  retreat. In the summer, the official Cinque Terre can be a bit hectic  for a relaxing yoga vacation, so we chose the most perfect location, yet  still a hike, boat or train ride away to all of the towns. The lovely  decorated guest rooms ensure an incredible night's rest with the most  comfortable luxury linens & down pillows. Each bright and spacious  guest room is ensuite with rain showers and deliciously scented bath  products. There is also a complimentary mini bar, in-room coffee and tea  set, housekeeping, music sound dock, hairdryer and wifi.  

A delicious and hearty breakfast  is included daily at our wonderful location. Fresh fruits and juices,  eggs made-to-order, cheeses, local breads and heavenly sweets are all  part of our daily post-yoga meal.  

We have included a variety of other delicious dining! 

Our Welcome Dinner is a special pizza party. Homemade pizzas, fruity sangria and big bowls of crisp salad. We will also have a special seafood dinner prepared with heavenly local fish or seafood. And finally, our last evening is a very exciting Goodbye Dinner and local wine with views to die for! Plus, a sunset aperitivo, a pesto cooking class and more. 

Yoga & Activities


Twice per day (except boat day and shopping day, when we practice once per day) we will practice yoga outdoors with the sounds of only the sweet birds to accompany us! Your host, Shari  will guide you through a vigorous vinyasa flow and during the week we  will also include a yin and restorative session. As always, Shari will  listen to what the group needs and adjust accordingly for the best yoga experience! 

There are several incredible excursions on our Cinque Terre summer retreat: 

SUNSET BOAT & APERITIVO:  Reserved exclusively for our villa, a boat tour along the picturesque  coastline of the Cinque Terre is a must-see, especially at sunset!  

Our captain and guide, Angelo is a 10th generation  fisherman from Monterosso. We can't wait to hear his stories and love  for the Cinque Terre. We will also share a wonderful aperitivo on board.   

GUIDED 1/2 DAY HIKE: Time to  stretch our yoga legs out with a gorgeous, half-day hike through the  stunning Cinque Terre. Our guide is an expert of the area and will show  us the best views of sea and mountain.  

VINTAGE SHOPPING 1/2 DAY:  Time  to shop till we drop! We will explore a local town and all of the  hidden gems by a local expert. Time to find that perfect pair of  Italian-made shoes or exquisite antique piece for your home. We will go  to the secret spots and find the most wonderful treasures to take home!  

PESTO-MAKING CLASS: The Italian  Riviera is home to pesto, so of course we need to take a class on how  to make it and then eat it! We will make it by hand with the freshest  ingredients and then enjoy the fruits of our labors with wine, of  course. 

BIKING + SUNSET APERITIVO: We  will take the bikes from our villa and head to Bonassola beach for a  glorious sunset aperitivo by the beach! We will bike along a specially  designed path, easy to navigate for any level rider.

"Yoga has brought me so much joy over the years. It is a never-ending journey filled with friendship, travel, excitement and love. There is always something new to learn and I can't wait to see where the next adventure takes me and who will be coming along for the ride!"


"My yoga retreat with Sole Yoga offered me the unique opportunity to travel the world and meet like-minded people. It was exactly what I was searching for: a pause in time during which I learned much more about myself and my yoga practice than I had in the studio in years." (Sole Yoga personal website, shortened)
