Prepare for a transformative experience at Casa Wallace with this week-long intensive on health and healing. Against the stunning backdrop of the vineyard, Jonathan uses walking, standing and anatomy to teach optimal posture and movement. Yoga teachers who attend this retreat will earn 12 CE credits. This retreat is also perfect for those who work with people suffering from chronic back pain.
Jonathan's teaching style is fun and filled with humor! We'll be doing a combination of walking, yoga, meditation, release work, therapeutics, anatomy and much more.
If you've ever wanted to learn how to make real Italian pesto and gnocchi, this is your chance. You'll make it with an Italian mamma!
You'll enjoy three healthy meals each day, plus a variety of snacks throughout the day. The meals are always organic - fresh, local and even from our biodynamic garden. We can prepare for any type of diet so let us knowing advance if you have food allergies or dietary restrictions (gluten and lactose intolerant).
A highlight of the retreat is a tour of our wine cellar with wine tasting. Claudio explains how we work with nature's rhythms on our biodynamic vineyard, and why we believe in our non-intervention philosophy in the wine cellar. It's all about being authentic.
Wine at Dinner and Extra Wine
We like to include a couple of glasses of our wine at every dinner. Should you want more, you can pay for it at the end of the retreat at our "cellar " prices reserved for guests. We also have an "honesty bar" for those who want wine other than for dinner.
You may request single rooms on a limited basis for an extra charge. All rooms have private en suite bathrooms.
Don't forget to look at the weather app before packing. I suggest dressing in layers like an onion so you can easily put on and takeoff clothes. make sure to bring comfortable clothes for Jonathan's sessions and comfortable shoes for his hikes!
Italy has no problem with credit cards, but doesn't like American Express. If you feel comfortable with having cash on hand, I suggest changing at your bank before you leave so you wont be stuck with a ridiculously high commission at the airport.
We'll have a lunch prepared for your arrival. Then you can settle in, enjoy the pool and the surroundings and later Jonathon will introduce you to the week's activities during his afternoon session.
