About this trip

OASIS OF PEACE
Amalfi Coast Yoga Retreat
La Selva Eco-Resort, Positano, Italy
May 30th-June 5th, 2017

Come join us for a week of relaxation & wellbeing in Positano’s unspoiled natural surroundings. Enjoy morning and evening Yoga sessions overlooking the brilliant blue sea & Sacred Sound Baths & Meditations in the heart of Nature at a one-of a kind Mediterranean eco-resort, an Oasis of Peace hidden on one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines. Eliminate stress, recharge, restore, and balance your body, mind, and spirit with a week of personal practise, collective creativity, and community aspiration. Join our Aum Lotus Tribe for an unforgettable and transformational retreat into the heart of the Amalfi Coast.

Overview

Aum Lotus is thrilled to announce our next retreat at La Selva, MAY 30 - JUNE 5, 2018  situated high upon the stunning cliffs of the Amalfi Coast, Positano, Italy. 


Our home for the 7 day retreat is the eco-resort, La Selva, which overlooks the breathtaking Mediterranean sea and is surrounded by rustic olive and lemon trees, and beautiful flowers. Aum Lotus is all about Family, Community, and our Tribe, so La Selva is a perfect place to get

close, share our stories, and grow together. We will share accommodation in the various rooms of the this grass roots eco-resort and enjoy the healthy, fresh, delicious & vegetarian home cooked meals made with food grown right on the land. Our hosts also make their very own jam, preserves, desserts, and honey that we will enjoy every day. Each morning we will rise together meditating and practice Yoga, led by Violante  Binazzi of Aum Lotus on an outdoor deck with stunning views of Positano and in the evenings travel deep into an ocean of vibrations with a restorative Sonic Yoga Session and a Sound Bath inside a natural rock room with floor to ceiling windows. One night we will have the opportunity to listen the transcendental music of India with an evening concert featuring Andrew’s Saxophone & Singing Bowls, and Ciro’s Tabla, in one of the most magical destinations in Italy. For those who want to explore the coast by walking, we will offer a trek on the ‘The Path of The Gods’ and ascend to the heavens of south Italy. There will also be plenty of personal free time to relax and explore the local delights!


Join us for a week of journeying deep together into the world of creativity through movement & vibration.

Accomodation & Food

La Selva offers a few different options for accommodation with their beautiful natural rooms built into and on the cliffs. There is one private room with en-suite bath perfect for a couple or single participant who wants to have their own personal space. There is one room for 3 people with shared bath facilities outside the room that's perfect for a group of 3 friends or a small family. Finally there are 2 large rooms that will serve the majority of our tribe as our shared accommodation with en-suite bath. If you aren’t comfortable sharing your sleeping space with your fellow tribe members, then act fast to reserve either of the private rooms, or perhaps this isn’t the right yoga retreat for you! The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious with plenty of room for your gear. This is an eco-resort with no air conditioning or room service (no daily sheet/towel changes). Linens and towels will be provided, but we recommend bringing an extra towel (or two). Our retreat is at the perfect time of year, just before the most intense heat of the summer, and there is usually a wonderful cool evening breeze that comes up the cliffside and filters through the rooms.


Martha and Antonio, our charming hosts, will prepare delicious and locally grown food for us. If you have an allergy or food preference other than vegetarian, please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate. We will be served an wonderful mix of fresh salads, vegetables, homemade granolas, warm and cold dishes, rice and pasta. There is also special organic teas and delicious desserts every evening.


Typical Daily Menu is as follows:

Breakfast (Teas, Coffee, Fruit)

Brunch (Variety of Warm and Cold Dishes, Salads, Pastas, Fruits)

Dinner (Pastas, Cheeses, Warm Sides, Salads, Wine, Teas & Dessert)

Yoga, Sound Baths, Music, Trekking & Fun

Our unique style of yoga stems from the rich traditional forms of Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga but blends together the powerful vibration of the himalayan singing bowls and the intuitive freedom to follow your own creative body.


Within the form we find freedom; within the freedom we find form.


There are two spaces available for our daily yoga practice. One an outside deck facing the Mediterranean sea with stunning views of Positano and the Amalfi coast. And the other is a covered room with floor to ceiling windows that puts us in the heart of the coastal Nature.


We will be treated to an intimate evening concert of Indian Classical Music and World music by Andrew Kay & Ciro Montanari. Both musicians have spent more than a decade studying Indian Classical music in India and will present a beautiful array of melodies on the Saxophone, Singing Bowls, & Tabla.


We will also explore the nearby mountains with small contemplative walks and a longer trek on the famous ‘Sentiero degli Dei/The Path of the Gods’ to fully absorb the powerful vibrations of this historic coastline.


In our free time, we can walk down into Positano for shopping and the seaside for swimming or take the bus into other adorable Amalfi Coast towns, like Amalfi, Praiano or Ravello. For sure we will have other options to further explore the coast and even make a trip to the nearby island of Capri.

You are responsible to arrange your own arrival to either Napoli train station or airport by 12pm on May 30th for pick-up. We will help arrange a private group car service from both Napoli train station and Napoli airport the morning of the retreat, May 30.

Aum Lotus Yoga Retreats
Aum Lotus is an organisation built on the practice of yoga, vibrations, and creativity. We offer yoga retreats, workshops, and private sessions all over the world that focus on cultivating creativity through the combination of yoga, vibration, sound, color and collective consciousness. "We believe in a creative World, where Beauty is a force that guides the human being towards a more magical potential." Creativity = Yoga x Vibration² The founders of Aum Lotus, Violante Binazzi and Andrew Kay, met while staying at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Delhi. After almost a decade of intensive individual studies of Yoga and Indian Classical music they united their energies and started to weave their lives together and ultimately pave the path of Aum Lotus. The desire to spread their life philosophy of "follow your beauty and creativity" far beyond the existing yoga communities has led them to travel the world offering workshops and retreats.
