We sold out September, so we've added this 7-night retreat in August! 😊
Soothe your soul and revitalize your spirit, in Umbria, the “green heart of Italy“, known for its medieval hillside towns, magnificent forests, and delicious cuisine.
Our private villa (all to ourselves) is set in acres of lush gardens in this land of sun-touched rolling hills. A place where peace, silence and nature abound. Put simply, it is heaven on earth.
Join us for yoga, meditation, laughter and connection. A reminder that “Life is Good!”, as you release stress and reconnect to living with more meaning and joy. (Sign up now, space is limited)
A boutique retreat experience with a small group, in a peaceful and private setting. A special time of nature, laughter and making memories, as we breathe and renew.
Beginners and seasoned yoga students are welcome. You’ll feel supported and encouraged as you connect body, mind and spirit through ancient yoga practices.
Known as the pioneer of Yin Yoga in South Florida, Karen Pagano’s instruction focuses on energy patterns; releasing and opening to one’s True Essential Spirit.
Karen’s light-hearted delivery is grounded by multiple teaching certifications she has earned in over 30 years of practice.
Since 2015, Karen and Julie have co-created many heartfelt and inspirational yoga retreats in fabulous destinations around the world.
Julie Murphy discovered yoga in her home country, South Africa, and enjoyed the balance it brought to her demanding business career. She has several teaching certifications from the US and India.
Her wish is to contribute to a kinder world, through the balance and the peace that meditation can bring; inspired by contemplative self-inquiry as a path to positive personal transformation. Website: yogaressa.com

Peaceful, unspoiled, elegant … our boutique hotel has charming rooms with large windows that open up to stunning views of the unspoiled hills of Umbria. We will be lovingly looked after in the great tradition of Italian hospitality, as the chef spoils us with healthy, organic cuisine.
Walls of stone, aged by the centuries. Gardens of manicured lawns and olive trees. The scent of lavender and rosemary filling the air. Walk the numerous paths running through the woods, down to the stream in the valley below.
No wonder it was named one of “20 Best Places to Stay in Umbria” (— The Times)
If you’ve been with us on retreat before, you’ll know we blend activity with relaxation, whether in peaceful solitude or in the community of likeminded souls.
Optional excursions plus plenty of time to enjoy the salt-water swimming pool, or relax and read, or delight in the outdoor Jacuzzi with breathtaking views of the valleys below.
You might hike through the olive grove and then let your tensions melt away in a Turkish bath, or enjoy the treat of a massage in the Moorish-style spa.
Sip an aperitif on the verandah while watching the setting sun. Find the calm of tranquil nights under a star-filled sky. It’s all on offer here, in our peaceful haven.
This is more than yoga retreat. This is more than an Italian vacation.
We’ve designed a holistic experience, focusing on mind and body wellness, setting the foundation for positive personal transformation.
We always retreat to places where our group can enjoy comfort and that little extra special something as we make time for rediscovering the joys of life.
